3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle, twist-off with gold foil. Cloudy golden color, tall white foam. Large yeast cake at the bottom of the bottle. Lots of banana and spicy clove scent. A touch of mixed berry. Flavor is very spicy, all clove. A nice presence of wheat malt and banana. Large amount of American citrus hops as well in the finish. Lots of hops, very bitter on the palate. Sticky on the glass and heavy bodied as well. Iíd like to try it on draft.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
22oz bottle. hazy gold with a large, fluffy, white head. peach, coconut milk, honey, pineapple and just a hint of banana in the nose. flavors of pineapple, peach, apricot, piney hops. kind of a jumbled mess. not really digging this much, except for the name.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bomber split with Anndiesel. Super yeasty, unfiltered thick orange-tan. Creamy, impressive white head. Iím not a fan of most Double Wits Iíve had, but this one sort of reminds me more of a big German Weizenbock. albeit more aggressively hopped...hmmm..sort of like a big White IPA in a sense. Orange juice, grapefruit, banana, clove. Very nice offering, another winner from Peak.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 16/20
Marigold and lemongrass nose, soil accents, banana hints. Cloudy amber, abundant sediment, headless. Lilly dominant flavor upfront, moonpie banana and marshmallow barge in at midpalate. Somewhat chemical in the finish,. A little resinous as well, which I find off putting with the typical weizen flavors. I attribute that to a weird gestalt between the floral hop notes and fruity hefe yeast esters. I really dig the idea of hoppy hefes, as my past rating will attest. I donít think the selection of hops wa right for this base beer, however.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle thanks to AirForceHops
Appearance: Pours slightly hazy golden with a big creamy white head and lots of sticky lacing
Aroma: Wheat, yeast, clove, citrus and spices
Taste: Sweet malts, citrus, spices, hot alcohols with a bitter finish
Ok. The sweetness and alcohols took over and covered up a usually light and refreshing beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz Bottle, purchased at Pier Liquor - Narragansett, RI. Aroma reeks of bananas, a little too ripe, punched through with leafy green C-hop resin. Iím kind of conflicted about the quality of the aroma, itís just a bit too phenolic for me. The flavors start out kind of rough, but through the course of the bottle smooth. The hefe settles down and lets the clean, Grapefruit and Cinnamon qualities of the C-hop flavors show through. In the end, the bitterness is snappy, clean, and refreshing. A big, interesting experiment that probably would have failed if the hops werenít as big as they were.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle in a shaker. Pours amber with a fluffy, off-white head. Aroma of some caramel malts, light wheat and spice notes, and some piney/citrusy hops. Flavor about the same. Smooth texture, but could be a little thicker. A pretty good beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a two finger white head that fades very slowly leaving some lace. Murky pale amber color, ton of yeast left in bottle. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Yeasty nose, flavor is lemon and yeast, with a lingering pine hop aftertaste. Higher ABV is hidden. $5.95 for a 22oz bottle from Bertís Better Beers Hooksett, NH.
