3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
"Textbook hefe, for better or worse. It’s good. Not quite a standout, but everything the style should be. Aromatic and flavorful, with the "hint" of banana/clove bubble-gumminess really much more than a hint...it’s the dominating factor in the nose and flavor. Nicely done."

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A cloudy orange pour with a white head. The nose is extremely sweet. Lots of banana, candy, and bubblegum to go along with the bread and malt notes. Very little, if any, spice to the aroma or flavor. Tastes mostly of sugar, bubblegum, and banana. Plenty of sweet malt, minimal yeast, and a touch of citrus.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Pours cloudy amber with a tiny white head and no lacing to speak of. Aroma is lemon and wheat. Flavor is the same, but the banana and clove comes out here rather than in the nose. Lightly sweet, no bitterness. Surprisingly medium plus bodied.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a nice example of a German Hef. It’s got that banana/clove aroma, a bit a acidic, but a great creamy mouthfeel. Very well done.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Had this on tap and it was served with a lemon in it... Has a slightly clouded golden color with little carbonation or head. Smell is of lemon (hmmm I wonder) and light wheat/malt. Taste is slightly wheaty, but the lemon covers most flavor. Overall a poor hefeweizen.
