4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2010 Very cloudy orange yellowish pour in the glass. Full of distinct nose of nuts, flowers, resins, herbs and toast. Taste is a banana wheat. Body is a little on the light side. Rated 12/30/99
I should point out that this is one of the most inconsistent beers I’ve ever had. I’ve had batches of it that I’d rate as low as 2.0. My rating above is the beer in it’s heyday many years ago.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draft...GBOA ’06... Cloudy, straw-colored ale with a large, frothy, white head. Great retention. Tons of clove phenols in the aroma; nothing else, in fact. Clove-laden flavor as well with some subtle citrus fruit. Way too sweet and spicy; no semblance of balance. Between light and medium-bodied. Creamy with lively carbonation. Crisp, spicy finish. Everything I don’t like about hefes is in this one.
