2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
A nose of crtrus, and cloves with a touch of banana. Pours a hazy yellow with a monster mostly diminishing white head and sticky lacing. The taste is slightly sweet up front - fruity, yeasty, cloves - turning to a light grainy finish and aftertaste. Medium-light body with mild carbonation. Oveall, while ok, I like more banana taste in my hefeweizens than this one provided. The taste was all up front and then rapidly vanished.

Pours hazy straw with a fluffy white head. Clove and banana aroma, though weaker than the best hefes around. Taste is heavier on the banana, even weaker on the spice.

Bottle into a pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy yellow, with a small white head that persists. Nose is a very faint aroma of esters and yeast, cloves and banana. Taste is very faint, with some yeast notes, and is similar to the nose. Watery. OK if there’s nothing better, and a definite step up from macro adjunct swill.

It has the generic taste of a Hefeweizen, but I personal feel like it is missing several key factors (like a strong yeast presence/flavor) Very little carbonation and lacing. It looks like a lager, as in it is pale yellow in color.

Bottle (thanks blutt59). Lemon, light banana, clove, wheat malt, and hay aroma. Hazy pale yellow with moderate head. Lightly sweet tangy lemon, orange, light banana/clove, and wheat malt flavor. Moderate acidity and carbonation. Pleasant.

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.

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.
