3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle served in a shaker. Hazy golden orange pour with a thin head of lasting off-white foam that produced some good lacing. The aroma of the beer had fresh oranges, grass, high quality wheat, grass, and mild spicy yeast esters. The flavor included wheat, citrus, and a grassy bitterness. A hoppy hefe...I like it. Medium-bodied and creamy. Softly carbonated. I’m glad they didn’t use a cleaner American wheat yeast strain. The hefe characteristics really shine through under the hops. Nicely done!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to pint glass. Pours mostly clear, bright gold, medium head that foams away fairly slowly. Mild aroma of citrus peel, hay, a little candied fruit. Flavor is similarly mild - honey in the background makes a little bit of an impression, but mostly just citrus and wheat as expected.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 fl oz bottle via Piscator34. Pours a near-clear gold with a substantial white head. Aromas are banana, clove, and citrus. Tastes are more hefeweizen than APA with banana and some spiciness being dominant. A little chalky with a dry spicy finish. Very unique beer.

Bottle thanks to Cloin at the Tropical Croydonia tasting. It pours clear gold with a foamy white head. The nose is soft, juicy, grapefruit, lemon rind, soap, peach, wheaten bread and banana. The taste is crisp, bitter, clean, bready, wheat, banana bread, candy, bubblegum and light alcohol. Light-medium body and soft carbonation. Simple, but pretty drinkable stuff.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle courtesy of piscator34- clear golden straw, vibrant head and soapy lacing. nose- banana and clove, slight hops. taste- a bit muddled- the hops don’t really shine through and neither does the hefe aspect. Carbonation lively and quaffable enough. Mineral dryness on finish.
