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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.2 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a very hazy orange color. The eggshell-shaded head looks quite dense and sturdy at two fingers tall, but retention is just pretty good. It leaves behind sparse but thick looking lacing behind.
S: There actually isn’t much of a focus on esters here, and if there is, it’s definitely what I would consider more clove-forward. Not much banana or bubblegum. There’s also an earthy, bready tone provided by the combination of malts and yeast - and look! There are some hoppy touches, too! The quality of the aroma subtly sneaks up on me: I’m not too impressed at first, but the more I inhale it, the more enticing it becomes.
T: Definitely clove-oriented, balanced out by its mildly fruity midtaste. The latter reminds me somewhat of oranges with a dash of apricot. Some lactose cream pops up right before the swallow and on the finish. Not too complex, just really damn satisfying.
M: This is very crisp and refreshing. Definitely not a dry beer, though, and I’m perfectly okay with that. Given how drinkable it already is, a dry finish would ruin it. Low carbonation doesn’t impede, either.
O: Well, what else can I say apart from ’just another great German-brewed hefeweizen’?

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: Cloudy yellow/orange. Decent foam that disipates somewhat quickly but keeps its presence throughout the glass.
Smell: Banana/citrus bits. Inviting.
Taste: Banana/citrus with a hit of wheat.
Mouthfeel: No worries on the carbonation, almost spot on. A very sessionable beer that tickles the tongue.
Overall: Definitely a very good beer. Not my overall favorite Hefeweizen, but it is definitely up there. A solid Hefe for people who want to expand their horizons.
Serving type: Bottle poured into a Weizen glass.
