3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Moat Mountain. Hazed yellow beer with a soapy white head. Pretty bland beer, but does have some banana, bubblegum, and subtle clove. Nice enough doughy malt character. Slight tang of lemon and orange. On the light side in flavor and body as well. It’s at least inoffensive, but not really that great.

Tap at Harlow’s in Peterborough. Hazy gold with but a thin ring of foam, though I didn’t see it drawn. Orange and spice aroma. Relatively sweet with wheat and citrus notes and a spicy finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells of wheat and fruit and a touch of spice. Nice cloudy Orange color with two finger white head not much lacing. Lovely sweet smooth wheat beer with spices that really stand out like clove and corriander. Medium body with crisp clean carbonation. Really nice brew an any day nice work.

Can from Brewtopia. Pale cloudy beige gold with lasting head and a little lace. Nice banana clove aroma - nailed it. Peachy fruity grainy sweetness with wheaty tang and soft texture. Mild grassy mineral bitterness in clean finish. Medium light body. Yeah, this is an excellent hefe.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured into a weizen glass.
The appearance was a soft hazy burnt yellow to orange color. For a hefeweizen, I was a bit disappointed with lack of big fluffy white head that normally exists for the style.
Still, the smell grabs the normal flavors of a hefeweizen - banana esters, delicate clove and sly malted wheat underneath.
The flavor is basically the same with a lingering sharp malty wheat aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable feel to it. Carbonation seems to hit appropriately but the clove does hit a bit more than expected.
Overall, for the most part, it’s good. I’m surprised that aromas came out as they did with lack of head. But, I’m not going to be too hard on this despite appearance. Somehow, aromas and flavor seems to be on par.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16oz can from Bert’s
Hazy light yellow with a stingy white head. Spicy earthy sweet bready aromas, some clove some banana. Sweet bready maltiness with a hint of spice, clove and light banana yeasty flavors, little to no hop flavor or bitterness. Pretty easy to drink no flaws, but just a bit uninspiring.

On draft at the Smokehouse in North Conway. Very smooth and closer to a light pils or blonde than a Hefe. Not much wheat notes.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ Brewpub: This one pours a murky, darker golden color. There was not much of a head on it, or any lacing. A tart citrus nose is predominate. Some wheat notes. The taste is good. It has a tart citrus/lemon flavor, as well as some wheat. Nice body. A keeper.
