Honey, grain aroma, and oddly molasses. Honey and cereal flavor. Sweet. Graham crackers. Great bottle, blah label. Finishes out with some light astringency. Cloudy orange. Big head. Fair, needs a wedge. At Rathskellar, Indianapolis.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml swingtop bottle. Best before 0408. Hazy orange hue. Thick finger of white head. Big nose. Lotta orange and cereal wheat. Touch corn and banana. Rather dry and perfumy. Big citrus acidity. Lively yet drying. Acidic bitterness. Tart. Not too quenching. Off-putting finish. Effervescent and estery. I didn’t really care for this one.

500 ml swing top...golden pale color, large white head, banana/wheat aroma...palate is fairly carbonated with a rather watered down feel, taste is fairly bland certainly not like a traditional hefe.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bügelverschlußflasche: Slightly hazy, big rocky "dirty" head, visible carbonation; distinctive wheaty/yeasty and citrus-fruity nose, also; almost a bit bitter and tart; moderate sweetish flavour; citrus-fruit, again, in the finish, followed by some faint "hoppy" tartness. A refreshing, well made Weizen...........

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(swing top bottle) Hazy, orange colour with a big floamy yellow head. Sweet, slightly wheaty and fruity (ripe orange, banana) aroma with light notes of cloves. Light to medium bodied with a medium carbonation. Wheat-, and also a bit barley-malty taste with citrus and banana; slim, slightly sweet, minimal acidic finish with only shy notes of cloves, which I appreciate. Drinkable but surely not outstanding.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Great wheaty aroma, banana esters with a bit of light cloves, reminiscent of Paulaner, actually - more spicy than citrusy. Cloudy amber gold with huge white rocky head - huge lacing. Medium watery body with medium-heavy carbonation. Starts dry and spicy with dusty wheat maltiness, more like a wit than a hefeweizen. Not quite peppery, but quite spicy and dry bitter with a bit of banana and cloves at the end. Finish is dry and bitter with mild citrus oil. Chalky dry after.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
From a ceramic-lidded flip-top, this poured entirely foam at first which very slowly settled into a moderately active orange-yellow brew. The aroma is exceptionally stark and citric and over-the top sweet ... the combined effect of the giant white foam and the sugary-sweet aroma is almost like a sink full of freshly suds’d lemon dish soap. After the citurs on-slaught on my nasal passages, the first swallow is suprisingly starchy. The mouthfeel is much lighter than the prototypical Weissbiers, no yeasty doughiness here. Instead, this is a crisp, only lightly fruity, almost Pilsner-y beer. (#2726, 2/25/2007)
