2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained white head, over a slightly hazy, effervescent, yellow (SRM 3) body......nose is cereal malts, light banana, minimal clove, no hops.....taste is light colored fruits (pear, apple) light citrus (lemon) hints of clove, minimal banana/bubblegum, no hops, balance to the yeast......mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, high carbonation. While this meets the light end of the style, it is really quite low in yeast based esters and phenols. Perhaps a different yeast or fermentation temperature increase would give them a boost. BJCP 5/3/10/4/5

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
The best thing about this beer is the color and Naturtrüb cloudiness that is exemplar of this style. No head, adjunct filler Budweiser’y/ Miller Light’y nose carbonation and flavor. Really quite terrible from a bottle poured into a glass. This beer should have banana, clove, and even bubble gum notes to match the style. Should be malty sweet and crisp. Refreshing. You won’t find them in this beer, sadly. It was like cloudy Budweiser.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Very spicy beer, heavy clove, slight cinnamon and orange peel. First sampled in a flight, however drinking it at friendly spot in San Antonio at the recommendation of the bartender during a dip into the bar after a hearty breakfast on a cool morning really helped this beer shine. Would be good on cold nights around a fire, one or two at most is all i could tolerate after that the sweetness and flavor would be overbearing.

From a flight on tap. Unfiltered wheat. Bit cloying in the nose and taste. Perhaps a bit over spiced. This was pretty average.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy deep golden with a thick, appropriate creamy white head. Unfortunately it smells as if wheat just farted--a bit sulphuric, and hard to detect much of anything else. Flavor was medium bodied and basic for the (americanized) style--wheat, toast, a touch too much bitterness, dry, more wheat and toast crust, and just a hint of clove on the finish. Drinkable for sure, and the aroma goes away once youre used to it. Buuuut....
