3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden with a huge, foamy, white head. Nose is popping with banana esters, some spice and barnyard notes. Taste is well-balanced: subtly sweet with a delicate hop edge. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Very nice wheat beer!

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Banana, clove, cinnamon, and wheat drive right from the aroma onto the palate. Unfiltered, so it is nice and chewy. Lots of big, bold flavor from this hefeweizen. Alcohol is well hidden, so it can be a little sneaky.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours a bright gold with a thick white head that dissipates in an appropriate time. Keeps a nice thin layer of white over the top. Smells of banana and clove. First taste is banana with a lingering clove finish.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a cloudy gold with a beautiful creamy two finger head that doesn’t let up much.
Smell is centered around clove although lemons and a hint of banana follow.
Lemon is the first thing I notice in the palate and is prevalent throughout. A little bit of bubblegum and pepper make their way in and it finishes heavily spicy from clove.
Mouthfeel is spot on. A bit creamy and the higher than normal ABV for a Hefe helps.
Very good beer, but pales in comparison to the Live Oak I had last week. I prefer less clove in my Hefes and this one is centered around clove. That said, it’s not way out of balance and the lemon flavors do a pretty good job of balancing out the spice. Will definitely seek this out again.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy golden color with a big foamy two finger head that hangs around and says wassup. Big fruity wheat notes mingle with sweet bubblegum and a trace of spice. The palate follows with a great quenching mouthfeel, some nice citrus balanced off some of the fresh wheat notes and lightly spiced yeast quality ! Really a great wheat beer.

Really? Do you just take all your "standard" beers and make them a mild ale of some sort? Come on. I love your fruits and unchained series, but this is shit.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours golden with healthy white head, no lacing. Bubblegum, banana, clove on the nose. Texture is thin -- light body, effervescent carbonation. Wheat, citrus come into play in the taste. Short, crisp finish. Overall: nice, though the texture is a bit thin for me.

A nice wheat beer with great color and a mild fruit aroma. The beer is a lighter wheat that makes for good drinking in warmer weather.
