1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Draft at brewpub. Pours almost orange and cloudy with a very, very thin white head. Has a slight frutiness in the nose. Tastes like I bit into an apple which is a bit off putting when you’re expecting a hefe to taste like something a wee bit closer to style. Thankfully it finishes clean. A massive disappointment.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the brewery: poured a cloudy butterscotch yellow with a small white head. Mild banana, yeast notes in the aroma. Moderate banana notes and yeast in the taste. Kind of a mild off flavor in this one. I couldn’t pinpoint the taste. About halfway through I didn’t really want to finish it, but did anyway. An okay beer but not something I would have again.
