3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Podnahís Pit BBQ - Pours hazy golden with a big fluffy white head. Nose is lots of sweet wheat, a little banana, and subtle spicing. Melon, tropical fruit, and a good deal of bready yeast. Not like most of the hefeís Iíve had--more full and less sweet. Same taste, real fruit- and wheat-forward, with a mineral finish. Thick and slick body. I liked it, but a more mineral, more banana-ey hefe is my thing.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2012 Completely opaque apricot yellow. Head is creamy, white, and tight-bead. Tell-tale hefe, all the way; with an amazingly fresh and wonderfully wholesome yeast character. Medium bodied, full mouthfeel, great carb, and a mellow finish that has just a hint of tartness to balance out all that yeasty wheat-malt goodness. Supremely full-flavored, hearty without being heavy, quenching without being thin. Fresh-baked honey-biscuit with banana/pear preserves and spices. Maybe I was just pleasantly surprised by this, but it really hit the spot for me. Beats New Glarus, tops Heater Allen, and more than holds up to classic old-school examples. Perhaps this was just an amazing batch or something because Iíve had other trusted palates tell me they were not quite so enamored with it. Looking forward to trying it again, comparing it side-by-side with some of the others I typically enjoy, and seeing if this score holds up for me. Currently my favorite wheat-treat.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Ventiís South. Heavy banana and clove aroma. Banana and some tart citrus flavors. Dry finish that seems a bit over carbonated. Overall a pretty good Hefeweizen.
