3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: cloudy gold pour out of a 12 oz can; decent retention and lacing of a creamy white head. Aroma: strong aromas of banana cream pie, with definite notes of pie crust, custard, light vanilla and citrus. Taste: sweet, with strong banana, light bubblegum and clove, general yeasty spice. Finish: lasting sweetness (I even burped banana a few minutes after finishing), with a bit of yeast and just a tad bit of random boozy heat. Notes: Very nice American take on the style. Unexpectedly good. Can from Total Wine in McLean, VA.

This is an awesome hefe. Big banana and sweet pastry aromas. Almost like a pie. It’s all about banana cream pie flavors too, with a touch of citrus at the end. One of the best hefe’s I’ve had.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. can, consumed on 1-3-15. Pours a clear, effervescent gold. Quite bubbly. Large amount of cream-colored head. Produces decent lacing. I wish it were cloudy instead of clear, but the effervescence at least largely makes up for that deficiency in appearance. It is lightly cloudy only in the final pour. Yeasty, wheaten smell features scents of overripe banana and minerals. Quite pleasant aroma. Nice flavor matches but doesn’t rise up to the aroma. Not as strong in aroma or flavor as should be. Spicy finish (coriander, clove). Light body; aqueous in the palate. Overall, this is a decent hefeweizen, although it doesn’t smell as outstandingly good as many other hefeweizens do. I wish there were more strength and complexity to it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy golden-amber with a 1-finger white head. Stereotypical aroma of banana esters with a touch of yeast. Medium body, with a lightly syrupy thickness and a dry finish. Flavors of lemon and honey, with some black pepper at the back. Some earthy yeast as well.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours a very hazy gold-yellow with a high, fine-grained, white head. Nose is tropical fruit, clove, honey, and nutmeg. Very substantial on the palate; it has some real heft to it, with toast and umami notes behind the fruit and sweetness. Lots of depth to it. Finish is long, lemony, and spicy. There are few American hefes I consider worth the time; this is one of them.
