1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Caution: Red Rock makes a "Hefe-Weizen" year round, and a "Weisse" during the summer months. This review is for the year round Hefe-weizen, and based on the poor reviews from others I believe they are referring to the Hefe-weizen as well. (the Weisse is much better)
Appearance is a spooky yellow-green color with an almost non-existent head. Palate is... the most disappointing Hefe-weizen I’ve ever tasted. Almost no flavor, and some unpleasant dough tastes. Very little bananna taste. Finish is short, and this beer is very very light bodied. Almost watery. The German tourist sitting next to me at the Olympics said it best "Don’t order the Hefe-Weizen!"

On tap @ The Bayou. Pours with a bit of haze with a gold to copper body and bright white head. The aroma is sugary sweet and backed up by ripe banana and more sugar sweetness. I also get a touch of lemon and spice in the background. The taste is big sweetness and ripe banana, just a hint of grainy malts and some light notes of banana nut bread. Just too darn sweet for my taste.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at the Bayou. Pours a cloudy orange with a medium white head. The nose is very strong; mostly banana and very sweet notes, some nutty aspects too. The taste was kinda like having a slice of banana but bread, some cloves and malt in there, sweet and filling. I guess this just is not my thing.

Murky, pale yellow with a wipsy heaed. Smells like meat. Very odd. Some bitter notes with wheat. Flavors of wheat, citrus and some bitter coriander.

NABA ’05: Lots of citrusy yeast notes, very acidic, strong and malty. They say that the nose is the most powerful memory receptor. why am I remembering smells from a deep sea fishing voyage when I smell this beer? That can’t be good but it has a toasty quality to it like the small of freshly vinegared rice touching some crunching nori. Slighly funky notes to say, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
