3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled during Dark Lord Day ’09 back in April via roving growler in line for a few bottles of Dark Lord. Pours a hazy golden pale colored brew with an average white head that has some nice retention. Aroma of heavy banana esters, yeast, some light clove, tropical fruit and some bubble gum. Taste is medium to full bodied, flavors of Hefe yeast, banana esters, bubble gum, clove and a touch of citrus zest. Finish is smooth, with a fast disappears banana and golden grain malt aftertaste. A tad more wheat than I am used to but still quite excellent.

Tap at Piece. Pour is very cloudy deep yellow with medium tan head. Aroma is wheat, floral notes, lots of fruit, some spiciness, and some faint hop aromas. Smells wonderful. Flavor is true to nose with a prominent fruit flavor that is very nice. It’s a rich full hefe and really good.

64oz growler. mouthfeel is a 5 -- echoes the bubblegum found in the esters with a juicy, responsive and alive palate. aroma is a killer blend of banana and even raspberry. more raspberry in the flavor. appearance is like sludge, ultra cloudy. mouthfeel continues to impress, so soft. this is a very drinkable and quite complex weizen, its just alot of fun!

Tap at piece. This was really enjoyable. One of the best I had at piece. Cloudy gold color wtih a white head. Yeast, bananas, bubble gum, bread and spices lead to a really enjoyable beer. Mouthfeel is very nice and flavor is very nice indeed. Wheat, banana, honey and just a nice hint of hops. Session time!

Medium sized foamy off white head sits atop a orangey yellow hazy body. Bit of lacing. Nose and taste is banana cloves, honey and sugar as is the taste. Mouthfeel is nice and bubbly. The finish length is short to medium. This is good and a solid hefeweizen but it does nothing new...

I took a couple of sips of TheDudes while he was dying a bit. Nice look, good smell and taste. Made me wish Piece would clean out the hipsters and the dudes crushing miller lites so I could actually enjoy the place.
