3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. It pours mostly clear light golden with a medium fizzy white head. The aroma has strong wheat, light lemony hops, hints of vanilla and spice. No banana or clove. The flavor is the same. Wheat forward with light notes of apple and vanilla. Soft wheat character. Pretty watery on the palate. Overall pretty bland, but refreshing enough I guess.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can pour into tulip glass from Manchester Wine & Liquors. Aroma is yeast, wheat and mild fruit/banana and clove. Appearance is cloudy light yellow with sediment particles in suspension and at the bottom of the glass, nice sparkle, massive 4 finger-width off-white head with poor retention, no lacing. Taste is wheat and mild fruit/banana, yeast, mild bubblegum. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thin, frothy texture, fizzy carbonation (dominant feature of palate) and mildly sweet, fruity finish. Overall, wondering if this might have been a bit old (but no born on or best buy date) as aroma was not banana and head and carbonation level seem out of character. That said, certainly had all the features of a hefeweizen but not to award-winning level.

4oz taster @ VCBW 2016- Day 2. Super bright entry. Fully rounded all the way from start to finish. Clean wheat malt, no roughness. Flavours of peach, banana, pineapple. Custard-like finish. lvl-2-sweetness. This one blew me away, I’ve never had a Hefe this clean, full, bright, and fruity. Superb.

On tap at VCBW Festival 2016, pours a cloudy golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out notes of clove and restrained bananas, with a touch of citrus. Flavour is along the same lines, with lots of clove, mild banana and citrus finish. Standard hef. Drinkable enough but nothing special.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Single can with no date code into a pilsner glass.
Admittedly purchased only for the Nebraska state tick as I dislike wheat beers.
A: Rough pour yields almost no head which was gone in a minute. Thick yellow appearance you cannot see through..
S: Smooth sweet earthy scent with the slightest hint of banana.
T: Grainy tart flavor with thankfully no noticeable sweetness. Pear? Sort of saison-esque.
M: Thick body with low carbonation and tartness lingering on the finish.
O: Another wheat beer... Points off for no dating.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer pours a clear golden color with a persistent white head. The aroma blends banana and wheat, and the flavor is mildly sweet with stromy banana notes. It is a bit one dimensional though. The carbonation isn’t as high as I like in this style, but it has a nice full mouth feel.
