3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy golden with a fluffly white head. The aroma is lovely. Nice fruity and sweet. There is a hint of banana and very sweet wheat in the flavor. The palate had a watery finish for me, but smooth and effervescent at the begining. I think this is a good summertime beer. It’s light yet kind of sweet and I think a lot of my girlfriends would probally like this one. Nothing fantastic, but a good one to keep a six pack of when you just want to relax and enjoy a descent beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2007 Bottle: Aroma is a little on the weak side for a hefeweizen. Basic aroma of citus, cloves, and wheat. Pours a very cloudy orange. Small, large bubbled head that dies quickly. Not much lacing. Malty flavor starts but finishes citrusy and slightly sour. Very carbonated. I never really understood the bubble gum flavor people describe in beer, but after this one I do.

12 oz. brown, long-necked bottle. Freshness date of 02/05 seen in lower right corner of front label.Still fairly fresh then. Poured out a cloudy orange-yellow color, with a bulky head. It left a more than decent head and lacing along the sides of the glass. Aromas are of banana, cloves, and yeast. Malts make a brief, but strong appearance in the aromas as well. No hops aromas evident.Thick mouthfeel. Not thin or cloying. Slight phenolic character to it, not offensive in any manner. Finishes tart, and clean. A top notch wheat beer.

ok. not bad for a beer that they advertise for on the radio... not bad for being on tap at a big corporate sports bar chain. more on the spicy end of hefe weizens... not too much fruitiness. watery. lacking impact, but not bad.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2005 It has a hint of bubblegum and strong banana flavours, quite bubbly with decent lacing, smells nice and a good head. Nice, but it doesn’t really kick ass; the flavours aren’t as strong or complex as they could be, plus the aftertaste isn’t that great. Passable but inessential.

Not too tooty-fruity as others of this type, rather more balanced. Decent aroma. Light yellow cloudy colour. Tasty citrus is drinkable. Malt nice with food. Not crazy on some of the spices as pepper. In your face carbinations means an uneasy mouthfeel for some.

Cloudy golden yellow with a white head. Typical wheat nose on it. German wheat yeast dominates the beer. Nothing special.

Big frothy head out of bottle. Eggshell white. Nice wheat flavor. Not too bitter. Color and particulates make it look to me very much like Bell's Oberon does. Definitely a better tasting beer in my opinion. Good but not exceptional.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A cloudy orange colour with a huge white head. Nose is citrus and wheat with some malty sweetness. Flavour starts malty and finishes light citrusy and acidic. A very clean drinking beer for a hot day with a nice hop bite in the finish.
