4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2006 Pours typical for the style, nothing to stand out, but nice initial crowned head, good lacing. Cloudy and golden. The aroma was a soft balance of spicey phenolic compounds and a smooth wheaty base, some bananas. Definitely doesn’t overwhelm on either side, again decent balance within the hefe world. Mouthfeel was moderate for the style, this thing was really drinkable, as the flavor wasn’t cloying or too strong (I love Franziskaner, but can’t session them). One of my limited draft experiences was a little bit sulfury, not sure if that is typical for this beer.

The color is a cloudy golden orange with a nice white head. The aroma has hints of clove and citrus with a flavor that is slighly lemony with a light dry finish.

Bottle. Brilliant white head and a nice cloudy orange body. The aroma is lightly citric and bitter, and the flavour is very smooth, refreshing and citric with a syrupy texture. Overall a very nice beer.

Light, refreshing, and spicy, without heavy hop flavor. Instead of hoppiness, the beer has flavors of citrus, banana, and spices.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 12 oz. bottle to a hazy yellow-orange with a thick off-white head. Strong wheat and dough aroma, with clove spice. Hint of some fruits, but couldn’t determine what they were. A good medium body and a flavor that was fruits and spices....very good. My only complaint was the finish. From the first sips to the last warmed up swallow, this beer did not imopress me with the aftertaste..part dry, but mostly just short and bland. Overall, though, I could see several of these on a hot summer day later this year.

On draft at Darcy’s, Denver. Poured a much richer orange color than I remember and was served with an orange slice (why?) which made me wonder if I wasn’t drinking a dunkelweiss, despite the non-dunkel tap handle. Still, it was an attractive beer and I removed the orange before it could taint the beer, which had a nice clovely aroma and flavor with some wheat tartness and a little caramel maltiness. Good creamy mouthfeel and subtle bitter finish.
