4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Still one of my favorite hefes. I like the drinkability and the lighter taste of the hefe. Great with or without lemon. Wheat taste really comes out, like drinking a fresh wheat roll. Refreshing and light while still very flavorful.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the bottle of a six pack on special for $5.99(+). This one goes down smooth. Has more character than the American wheat ales I’ve tried, but less than traditional German Hefes (and a lil more carbonation). Nice change of pace from what I usually buy, and great for summer. Overall solid purchase.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at brewery with commonmac and rosskyle. Unfiltered gold with white head. Sweet and slightly citrus smell. Not very full but has the hefeweisen elements. Wished it went for it more. Refreshingly average.

Bottle from Homeplus in Seoul. Served in a weizen glass. A nice golden cloudy wheat pour with a thick light beige head. The nose is yeasty bready graham. The taste is bready sweet yeasty banana. The body is med-light but it has a bready honey quality to it. The taste is sweet honey graham with a light fruitiness. Average.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
An interesting light west coast hefeweizen. From a bottle, pours a thoroughly hazy orange/grapefruit appearance, white foamy head, a nice summery look to it. Citrus, sweet mango and orange notes on the nose. Very soft light tropical taste, wheat, banana, lemon, other fruits, also a hint of hop bitterness in the finish. Soft palate to the point of being weak, yeastyness is understated. Maybe on draft it would have a stronger flavor. Overall, this brew has a lot of refreshing aspects, but as a whole not that great.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle (bought for beer cheese soup)
A: Cloudy orange with a thin white ring of head. Some lacing.
N: Biscuit, earth, pine, clove, hint of citrus and banana. Fairly basic.
T: Bready and more bitter than sweet.
M: Light body, fuzzy carbonation, no alcohol burn.
O: The beer that is. Not original or complex but easy to drink while making dinner. Certainly not in the field of Weihenstephaner.

Hazy straw colour. Aroma is citrus. Taste is citrus, vanilla, and banana bread. A little bit too carbonated for the style.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft pour many times over the years. Pours a cloudy banana orange color with a patchy head. Soft, sweet fruit aroma. Flavor is very grainy, with hints of tropical fruit throughout. Not a very enjoyable beer for me, but I’ll take it over its common competition most days. Gets old, but not horrible.
