3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Purchased on draft at an Outback Steakhouse - fortunately I remembered to tell them not to use a frosted mug, geez, do they think that all beer is ice impervious swill like the mass produced lagers? This came in a large mug, hazy golden color with a small head and little lacing. Fruity aroma with malt and wheat and a decent hop spice. Flavor was malted grains, sour mash, lemon and a medium hop finish. Good with a meal but not a favorite.

Hmm...not a huge fan of this one. Nose is fairly crisp, and little else. The appearance is the high point, with decent (but quickly fading) head and dark orange color. Flavor is fairly flat and lacks depth. Ehh...

Nice refreshing American wheat beer. Some banana in the nose and taste. Want to try on a very hot day.

Smooth and easy drinking. I found some banana in this (aroma and even taste) but little to none of the typical clove - that's o.k. - it made it all the more drinkable. Nice light hop finish too. Now, I've got to figure out how to drink it while using the weed whacker at the same time...

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy golden color with a wispy egg white head. Sour wheat aroma. Quite spritzy on the mouth. Sour lemon/lime flavor pop flavors in the start. Fnish has some more malt backbone. Light cross of bavarian and berliner weisse. Quenching, but not alot of flavor.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2011 Golden cloudy wheat beer that my waiter poured with a smallish head. Banana and cloves, more spice than sweet fruit, sour and wheaty, not much hops. // rerated 15 December 2011. Nasty. More dirty than fruity.

Sort of a flat hefeweizen. Sweet flavor with hints of banana ... very much like Sudwerk's Maerzen. Great gold color. Not bitter at all. Doesn't taste that great when the brew gets above 65 degrees.

A marginal wheat beer with mild hops, but lacking in overall flavor. You can do much better than this, but unfortunately most of them are seasonals.
