3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2013 Had this as "Bergsteiger" Hefeweizen according to the brewpub menu; I’m assuming these are the same, since the stats are identical. Aroma of banana, clove, slight gum and pepper. Appearance is cloudy light gold with sticky white head. Flavor matches the nose; the palate is medium, bubbly and very soft. Good.
