2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled on tap at Natty Greene’s in Raleigh. Pours a hazy yellow color with white head. Served with a lemon - big party foul for a hefeweizen! Yeast, wheat, lemon, corn husk aromas. Yeast, wheat, light bubblegum flavors. Light bodied. Kinda tangy. Just not a very good hefeweizen.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured as a 4 oz taster at the Greensboro pub. Comes served with a slice of lemon, even on a taster. I know that in Germany it’s common to squeeze a fruit juice in hefeweizen, but it probably isn’t needed here. Correct to style - obvious banana and clove notes on the nose and the palate. Finishes clean. One of the better American hefeweizens I’ve had.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Natty Greene’s downtown - pours cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma is the typical banana and clove. Good example of the style, though I wish they wouldn’t put the stupid orange wedge on the glass.

not a good hefe impression, but a nice american hefe. A bit watery and lacking in palate.
