3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
3/14/2012: Moerlein Se7en Hefeweizen... Aroma: Wheat; nice banana presence; plenty of clove spiciness. Appearance: Cloudy yellow color with a large, bubbly white head. Flavor: Light banana; clove; biscuit and slightly nutty; crisp, light grassiness in the finish; finishes a bit weak/soft. Palate: Medium-light; good mouthfeel. Overall: Pretty good and refreshing; this is the best hefe Moerlein has produced so far; it is quite traditional and fits very well into their current line up; however, I prefer a bit more banana and a little less clove in a Hefe.
Draught at Moerlein Lager House in Cincinnati, Ohio. Rating #1 for this beer.

Purchased at the Moore Street Moerlein Brewery in the Over-The-Rhine nrighborhood of Cincinnati, Ohio - Alright, this one had the correct banana and cloves aroma of a proper hefe, but I found the palate to be a bit lacking... yes, add more body to this beer, Greg!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the Moerlein brewery. Pours a hazed gold with a very small white head. Banana, clove, wheat, sweet and barley malts are on the nose. Flavor: check. Minor citrus and bubblegum. Medium-bodied, with a malty sweet mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Pretty authentic take on the style. Nice warm weather sipper.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy golden amber with a head that reduces to a light covering, curtains of lace. Taste is very mild wheat and malt, doesn’t change through the palate until the sides of the tongue pick up spices, especially cloves and coriander. Mild bittering enters at the finish. Light, refreshing, excellent on a hot day, good for a long evening, but still....very mild.
