3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transfer from BA review on 12-8-13-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a very hazy amber-orange color with tons of carbonation bubbles seen streaming up through the body of the beer. Upon pouring there is only a very small fizzy white head that rapidly fades, leaving only a trace of light lace on the sides of the glass and a persistent while foam layer on the surface of the brew.
Smell – The aroma is strongest of a wheat smell mixed with a rather strong orange and sweet lemon smell. Along with these aromas are some decently strong spice smells of coriander, clove and some nutmeg as well as a light grassy smell.
Taste – The taste begins with a slightly grainy wheat and yeasty flavor mixed with a bit of sweetness of an orange nature. The sweetness is strongest upfront, with it fading slightly as the taste advances to the end. Along with the loss of some of the sweetness, spice flavors begin coming to the tongue with coriander and clove being the strongest. The clove flavor really starts getting strong more toward the end of the taste, with it being joined by some grassiness and an increase in the yeast. With all the changes in the flavor, as well as the arrival of a little bit of lemon at the very end of the taste, one is left with a grainy wheat, citrus, and spiced yeasty flavor on the tongue; one that is relatively average for a hefenwizen.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thinner to average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is a bit on the higher side. Both are rather appropriate for the style and make it a rather easy drinking brew.
Overall – An alright, easy drinking Hefe, but nothing that is super exceptional. Nice and easy drinking.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
DATE REVIEWED: August 10, 2014... GLASSWARE: Weihenstephaner weizen... OCCASION: birthday weekend recovery...APPEARANCE: golden orange, almost Oktoberfest colored body that hazes beneath spongy three-finger, white head; low carbonation; lacing is wispy... AROMA: Yow! yeasty funk that sports bubblegum, prominently; secondary banana is detectable; a bit offensive... PALATE: more carbonated than its appearance suggests; pleasantly drinkable, light-bodied and cleansing; does its job well... TASTE: banana, cumin and hay--a direct profile that doesn’t intrude on its refreshing intent; not as BIG as a hefe, though--or as complex as its nose suggests...OVERALL: after some sun and yardwork, this beer is a recharger for sure--the glass empties swiftly and is a softer, more accessible version of its better versions...

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Golden color, massive white head. Aroma of subtle banana, light citrus. Taste is similar. Hi carbonation detracts from the taste.

Solid hefe. Surprised by the low ratings here -- I’m not sure what people are expecting? I wouldn’t mind a bit more banana notes in the flavor, but this one is quite good.

Pours a very hazy dark yeloow golden color with a small white head. Nose is mainly orange and some lemon with some wheat and yeast. Mouthfeel is light to medium. Long wheat finish good carbonation. Refreshing but not spectacular. Pretty standard hefe all around.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle from notes. Pours a slightly hazy light yellow/gold with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor are very mild; light wheat malts, light yeast, a hint of banana, very mild citrus, light body. This is not much different than most light beers. Pass.
