3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: Pours a hazy, yellow-orange body with a thin, bubbly, white head.
Smell: Wheaty, tangy nose with notes of sliced lemons and bananas spiced with freshly-ground cloves.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium-low carbonation.
Drinkability: Summertime, and the drinking is easy.

Bottle from World Market Arlington. The aroma and appearance was fine for a hefeweizen altough this one was flat. That might have been a from bad bottle?? As far as flavor, I could not taste any of the banana or the bit of rye malt mentioned due to the overpowering clove flavor. I generally like wheat beers with the hefewiezen yeast but this just had too much clove flavor for me.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
From a brown 12oz bottle - Pours a cloudy light pale color with almost no head and well below average carbonation. Smells of floral hops and very light malts. First sip is sweet and perfumy like with a very light malt backbone. Very light bodied, lightly hopped. Somewhat under carbonated. Bitter finish.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy Orange with an excellent citrisy and floral aroma. Weak and dry on the palate with hardly any taste. I’m not sure why the ratings are so high.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Pours a cloudy gold/yellow colour with small white head. Aroma and flavour are dominated by citrus with some spice lingering in the back. Interesting that there was also a sour funk to it. Better than average.

Pours gold with a generous white head. Smells like wheat with some citrussy hints. Tastes of typical hefeweizen spice, but they taste forced and artificial,. Lysol on the finish.

Deep golden wheat ale that pours with a small head that diminishes rapidly. The beer is clean and leaves no foam on the glass. It is appreciably cloudy. It has strong aromas of clove, spice, and wheat malt. The flavor is full and refreshing with flavors of banana, dry wheat, and vanilla. The beer has a medium body and a little fizz that makes it refreshing sip after sip. This is pretty flavorful, enjoyable brew.
