4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2013 From my local pub from draft it’s my favorite white beer. From another bar nearby from draft it’s horrible. From the bottle it’s a bit different but still a very good beer. So it’s hard to judge this beer. It’s refreshing, medium thickness, a lot of banana bread flavor, a bit floral, doughy, fruity and a tad sour flavor mixed through it to keep it fresh.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Classic Hefeweizen with yellowish, thick and moussy, creamy head and ochre blonde colour with orange glow and lively sparkling. Appetizing fruity aroma, bready malts, wheat, honey, almond, banana, apple peel, cloves, white pepper, perhaps a hint of orange and a bit sweaty. Light and subtle fruit sweetness in the onset, banana and apple accents, rather sharpish carbonation, fluffy, bready and cake-like malt base, intertwined with mild spicy notes (cloves, bayleaf), evolving into a softly sourish, very mild but well-incorporated hoppy finish. A reference for its style.

Opaque gold, strong white head. Yeasty fruit aroma, sweet yet... thick? taste. Sweet finish, but not too enduring. Liked it.

Ottima weiss molto particolare. Buon aroma fruttato bananoso come al solito mentre al gusto un equilibrio perfetto e un gusto davvero unico ne risalta la sua bontà.

Hazy golden-orange colour with a thick, white head. Aroma consists of yeast, fruits and honey. The taste is similarly fruity with a hint of spices, and slight bitterness in the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Une bière qui me vient d’un échange avec Todd, mon voisin au camping, qui vient de Columbus. Elle est, du moins, elle semble ambrée et quelque peu voilée en cette fin de journée où la luminosité a déjà diminuée. Une grosse mousse dense se forme au versage. Elle persiste et une mousse baveuse reste accrochée au verre. Des arômes de banane, ou de pelure de banane en émanent aussitôt. De façon plus discrète, le blé se fait sentir avec quelques effluves champêtres. Le goût est d’abord minéral et ensuite fruité. Elle n’est pas très expressive, mais bien satisfaisante.

See it everywhere, finally tried it. Hazy deep gold. Nose is tart wheat, lemon, a bit of sulphur. Flavour is pretty standard b/c with some sulphur, not particularly fresh. Pretty good.

Cloudy orange like colour. Huge yeasty aroma with banana and kitchen spice and some wheat as well. On the palate it is quite carbonated and kind of pops on the tongue. Medium bodied and fast flavour profile with an equally fast finish. Yeasty and hints of spice. Classically styled.

Transfer from BA review on 11-3-12-
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a very lightly hazed orange amber color with a thick and billowy white head. The head has fantastic retention fading to leave a decent amount of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is heavy of a yeasty and wheaty aroma. It is mixed with a decent black pepper and banana smell. Quite a classic Hefe aroma and quite nice.
Taste – The taste begins with flavors of wheat bread and a biscuit maltiness meeting the tongue. A light orange flavor is upfront which seems to grow stronger as the taste advances. While the orange grows stronger, other flavors of a yeasty nature come to the tongue. The biscuit begins to fade with the wheaty tastes and the orange citrus grows even stronger. In the end a light yeast and nice citrus wheat flavor are left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is quite creamy for an only 5.5 abv brew. It has a moderate to average level of carbonation. The beer sooths the tastebuds as it passes through the mouth. It is great for the tastes of the beer and quite drinkable.
Overall – A nice easy drinking Hefe with a fantastic transitions and tastes in the flavor. A very nice drinking brew.

Yeasty aroma. Pours a hazy golden yellow with small white head. Taste is yeasty with muted clove and banana. Body seems a little heavier than other hefes. Good solid hefeweisse. Inspired by another poster, I rate this behind Weihenstephaner but ahead of Franziskaner.
