3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Old Fashioned. Unfiltered cloudy orange. No real head, thin oily residue. Sweet orange-clove aroma. Medium bodied, doughy malt backbone. Zesty citrus lemon-banana clove flavor. Enjoyable, but not really on the level of classic Bavarian examples. A nice citrus bite, smooth sweet finish. Well balanced.

This one is way off. The color is too dark, the mouthfeel is too much caramel malt. Funky aroma. Wrong yeast strain used, This tastes nothing at all like Bavarian Hefeweizen. Not a bad American ale, just way off when it comes to style. I wonder why they call it "Bavarian". Back to the drawing board with this one guys.

Bottle poured a hazy golden amber with a lingering ring of off white foam. Aromas of wheat, yeast, clove and light bubblegum. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of wheat, yeast, ashes and light bubblegum with a smooth lingering ashy finish.

Bottled. Poured clear medium orange with a short white head. The aroma picked up funky, fruit skins and oranges.. not what I was looking for. The flavor found sharp, tangy, tacky fruit skins and sour wheat throughout.. finished funky. Light-bodied and unpleasantly sour and funky on the palate.. something was wrong here.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Pours cloudy yellow with a medium creamy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is classic Hefe - wheat, banana, lemon. Flavor is the same, with banana notes more prominent than in the aroma. Lighlty sweet, light bodied and refreshing. I cannot understand why this beer is getting such low ratings.

Aroma is mild bananas and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is bananas, an off, grain/malt element and a mildly tart finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bubbly, dark yellow...hmmm reminds me of...oh wait it actually tastes ok despite these abysmal ratings. There are bananas and wheat in there, fizzy delivery, and something that reminds me of cigar smoke. Strangely I like it. I had low expectations for this one but the itís nice how those expectations were surpassed. Iím tempted to try more from Pearl Street.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Special draft of the week at the Old Fashioned in Madison, WI. at the start of craft beer week. Dispensed to a shaker showing a hazed, orange/golden color, modest, off white head foam, and minimal lacing. The nose was light grain, subtle banana & spice, and a hint of metallic scent. The flavor was somewhat similar, with low hop bitterness, decent carbonation, and a light body. Fairly refreshing.

Bottle. I think there may be an age or quality issue with this bottle - at least I hope so. Pours an orange color, absolutely zero head. I donít get any of the clove or banana elements - I do get lemon, and general tart/sourness. Palate is super thin. Just not good at all.
