Hefe-What? I just had it after a Sammy winter and it was like a fresh mountain spring. I would recommend it to my friends.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A beautiful golden color. A taste of wheat and hardly any bite at all. A malty flavor with a lemon zing. A refreshing beer. A good beer to have towards the end of the night.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Murky, deep golden lager with a large, frothy, white head which diminishes to a small, creamy, white head. Thick, creamy lacing.
The nose is spicy and malty. Soap, clove, honey and lemon. The flavor mirrors the spicy, malty aroma and then delivers a big blast of lemon zest. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, semi-dry, tart finish.

poured cloudy yellow/amber with frothy, thin bubbly head. tasted wheaty, malty with flowery/citrusy overtones. finished somewhat crisp but seemed to be lacking. i didn't use lemon or lime with this beer. i would probably appreciate this one more if weizen was my favorite style of beer, but it isn't!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Banana, cloves, fresh baked bread, slight smoke- all these are in there from start to finish. No need to cover this up with a lemon, the flavors are all as they should be. Delicious.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light bread tasting nose with banana/clove yeasty overtones. Large fully lasting head with copious fine belgian lace. Hazy, medium yellow hue. Medium body. Dry finishing beer. Lively carbonation. This is the way a hefeweizen should be.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was probably a tad past it's peak. Hefeweizens don't have a long shelf life. Characteristic hazy yellow color and rich thick head. Hints of fruit and yeast in the aroma. Good yeasty flavor but a lot seems missing in both the aroma and flavor from what should be there. Worth trying.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange golden with a fine head.
Rather thin and tasteless, with some sourish bitterness.
