Draft in a flight at the brewery. One of the better hefeweizens I’ve had. Poured a hazy golden color with a fairly small head. Very easy drink with some subtle hints of citrus that makes for a good drink.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Across the Trax. Pours hazy pale yellow with white head. The aroma is spicy with coriander, pepper, clove, and lemon, and a little bit of cookie dough softens it. The flavor is lemonbread sweetness with some spiciness to it, mostly coriander and clove. The finish is doughy, but clean. I’m fairly impressed with this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Sierra Nevada Beer Camp Across America southeast edition. Pours a hazy yellow with fluffy white head. Aroma and taste are what you expect from an on style hefe, light wheats, hint of citrus, yeasty esters of clove, hints of banana. Spot on for the style, but not a style I go out of my way for.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pint at Across the Trax. This is a cloudy orange color with a very small head. The aroma is yeasty and sweet with heavy emphasis on banana and cloves. More hops becoma apparent in the flavor with a wooden finish. There is a bit of vegetal flavor and some gumminess floating around. Fairly decent.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap plus a growler back in our cabin. Yellow colored pour with a white head. Good amount of bananas and spices in the nose. Taste is fruity and crisp. Refreshing, easy to drink, and pretty good. Slight alcohol burn, but nothing overwhelming. Nice beer

On tap at the brewery. I believe this was called something else now, but it doesnt matter - it is the same beer. My girlfriend got this after we ordered a taster of it. Darker brown color with a yellowish head on it. Smell was fruity and had alot of banana and clove notes. Taste refreshing and easy to drink. A good example of the style.
