2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, undated, from Downtown Wine and Spirits, drunk 8/16/15.
All of the sediment had dropped out, leaving the beer sparklingly clear golden. White head is dense but small and slowly recedes to cover.
Very minimal esters in the nose, moreso corn-like notes, with soft bubble gum, and a dominant banan-tinged cream of wheat. Possible oxidation, even, which is odd, seeing as how this is unfiltered and can’t be THAT old (though there’s no bottling date, so who knows....). No alcohol.
In the mouth, it’s rather watery, as expected, with heavily attenuated malts leaving very dry, lightly sour wheat flavor behind and a touch of corn and bubble gum. Mixing the sediment in didn’t really do much, adding just a touch of chewiness to the texture. Not sure what to think here; I like that it’s dry, but it’s exceedingly so and the esters are a bit sluggish and unclean.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at source. Pours slightly hazy yellow white head. Aroma is typical German wheat notes, clove, slight esters (mild banana). Flavor is banana, esters, wheat. Quite sweet. Not bad. Not great.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from The Drinkery, Londonderry NH. Aroma is mild fruity esters with some yeast and some bready malt. A little like a Chardonnay. Appearance is clear light greenish yellow with no sparkle and no head/lacing. Taste is lightly sweet with slight fruity taste. Palate is light-bodied with thin texture and lively carbonation--perhaps the thing that stands out the most in the beer, and surprising given the lack of sparkle and head. Finish is dry and mildly bitter. Overall, true to the style--a refreshing, light, carbonated beer that satisfies a parched throat on a hot, summer day.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gold pour, nice white head. Aroma of spice, yeast, banana, pear and bubblegum. Flavor of banana, yeast, barnyard, cloves, with a wheaty finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very solid hefe! Has a nice pour - golden w/ a retaining white head that leave lacing. The aroma is fairly bland by that’s pretty standard to the style. The mouthfeel is nice & light w/ some hints of banana & other subtle spices in the taste. Nicely done & I believe this is my 1st try from this brewer!

Nice German style wheatbeer. Nothing really special, but clean, fresh and true to the style.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Meditrina. Had this so many times I can’t believe I never rated it. Very pale cloudy straw gold with fluffy noisy white head and lace. Clove pineapple bubble gum banana aroma. Medium pineapple fruity sweetness with clean clovey bitterness. Very light body with lively carbo. Excellent. I could easily drink this in one gulp.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is lacking. The typical banana clove is a bit overpowered by a little skunky notes. Flavor is a bit watery. Ekh.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear yellow with a massive frothy white head. Is this actually a Kristallweizen? Only became slightly hazy when I belatedly poured in the yeast slug. Tangy wheat aroma reminds me of a Berliner but without the acids and with way more of a yeast presence. Flavor is mostly more of the same only a little duller. Refreshing soft mouthfeel. Good late summer wheat.
