2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy, dark-straw with low to moderate carbonation. Sweet and strange aroma of butterscotch and yellow cake plus some spiciness. Light flavor of plums and peaches with considerable sweetness and some muskiness as well. Tart finish. Mouthfeel is like carbonated water. An odd beer. I'm beginning to wonder, are there any good wheat beers brewed in the United States?

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy golden colour with a thick (2 centimetre) dense white head. Smells of yeast, wheat, citrus fruit, coriander seed and that clean freshness (that is seemingly so indescribable) all come out nicely. Medium to Light-bodied; Medium flavours at first with the wheat and citrus being the major players but then falling off the palate completely. Odd mouthful, coats the mouth in a wierd fashion, not too pleasant. Aftertaste very subtle and mild, but with a bit of yeastiness is still noticeable as well as some residual sweetness. A decent beer...the aroma and appearance predicted this to be a bit better than it was, but not a bad beer for the style in any respect, but not better than average really. I bought this twelve ounce bottle at Total Wine in Chantilly, Virginia and sampled it on 10-September-2003.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2003 Foamy head with a darker colour to it. Citrus and wheat in the nose with similar taste only more tart than I anticipated. Smoothe feel to it. overall, this was quite good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A quality doughy aroma with fruit. Good label, a good slug of sediment. Mildly tart, nicely hopped, lots of fruit. Good mouth, but the tartness starts to cling. This was a good hefe.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Murky, deep golden brew. “Blink and you miss it” head.
The nose is of caramel, banana and clove.
Yeasty, beefy and lightly fruity in flavor. Some honey in there too.
Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Lengthy, lightly sweet finish with hints of oak.
An odd hefe, this one.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
One of those that you start out drinking for the rating and hopes it gets better but it never does. Very musky and unbalanced, oily and a little too sweet. I would not try this one again.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma of dirty hops and malty sewage. Flavor is lightly piney and citrusy. Palate is musky and not refined. I'm not that fond of american wheats, but this one makes them look like a monkey in a pinjata.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice smooth wheat beer. Nice color. Yeasty, and a little sweet. The fact that it is unfiltered leave a cloud in your beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I really wasn't impressed with this beer at at the brewery off the tap, nor from the bottle. It poured nice enough, but for my taste it isn't a high ranker. I miss the lemon taste that it is supposed to have.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice hefeweizen. A bit more of an amber color instead of a golden, lots of foamy head, and the standard taste of wheat and lemon. Just a touch of peach on the 'backblow'.
