4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 4, 2007 I have had this several times on the tap and 12 oz. bottle and both serve extremely well accompanying most meals. It is clean and light, with enough flavor to keep up with light or heavy dishes. The banana finish is noticeable but not intrusive. One of the most drinkable good beers I’ve had. Definitely one to pick up for entertaining - a great crowd pleaser.

Pours a light amber body with an off-white head. Spicy banana aroma. Thick mouthfeel with a kick of spices and a smooth banana finish. Really nice Hefe.

Yeasty banana aroma, lovely golden color. PERFECT hefeweizen flavor. My new favorite hefeweizen. Expensive and tough to find in CT, though. I will relish this 6 pack.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. A very picturesque beer with hazy gold color with a pillowy lingering head. This beer offers a fresh and clean taste. A solid summer beer.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden yellow color with nice white head. Aroma is better than the taste, very citrusy smell. Tastes fruity, citrus and banana, with a very sublte earthy notes a bit of nutmeg. I prefer Scneider and Sohn Edel Weisse.

Excellent, full tasting bottled Weizen. Classic banana/clove flavors integrate well with slight lemony acidity. Satisfies my palate as well as any micro beer could. No bitter yeastiness, great example of style, don’t miss it if you haven’t yet tried a German HW you like.

Bottle. This should be the benchmark by which to judge other weizens. While most are similar in style and character, few make my mouth water when looking back on them. This beer however sets that tone, and not bad for a mass produced beer easily available.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From keg. Hazy/cloudy gold color. Aromas of yeast and fruit. Flavor is spicey, with banan and clove. Not bad at all, just not my favorite style.

Munich - Gold hazy pour with wheaty nose which is also present in the flavor but there is also fruit there. Making this a very nice smooth weissbeer.
