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.

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'.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This one has a murky, deep golden hue and the aroma of banana-nut bread, with a rich, pleasing wheat taste. Yes, the head on this one was a bit lame, but the rich flavor more than makes up for that!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2009 Rerate Faint bubble gum, some cloves, not quite as profound as before Original 3.3 Had on tap at an Outback in Burlington, Wa. Good, solid domestic hefe. cloudy, light orange appearance. Has the patented banana, bubblegum aroma one comes to expect - flavor - similar. Has a pleasant thick mouthfeel - went down very smooth.
