2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rated on 10-21-2011 (Bottle) This beer has a very small white head with a lengthy retention, transparent pale yellow body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is malt, wheat, citrus hops, and crisp. The flavor is lightly bitter, citrus hops, lightly spicy, malt, and wheat. This beer has a lively mouthfeel and is medium bodied. This beer is not very tasty as it needs more flavor and more character.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Beer:30 in Jacksonville. Murky orange-yellow pour with visible carbonation and sturdy soap head. Aroma is wheat, spice, earthy. Tastes are bittersweet, spicey, spruce, pine, belgian yeast. Little strange. Not as bad as Iíd have guessed based on ratings.

Secret Krampus beer #3, thanks Peter.
Pours golden clear yellow, nice white head, no real lacing or retention to speak of. The aroma is actually somewhat hoppy, which I found odd. At first I thought this was a crappy IPA but then I noticed that itís an "American hefeweizen"...Beyond the hops are grass, grain, lemon, and mediocrity. Iím not opposed to taking a garbage style like pale wheat ale and hopping it up to make it drinkable but this is either old or it failed. The flavor is bitter, lemon, thin, corn, and seltzer water. Meh.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
1/25/14. 12oz bottle. Canít remember for sure if this was from Trader Joeís or from PorterPounder or Aurelius. I guess I didnít know what I was getting into with this one. Is the "mysterious twist" Brett? Because it sure smells and tastes like it. I would have guessed I was drinking a Brett saison or something. Orange pour with a small khaki head. Brett funk and hay on the aroma, light sourness. Mild flavor, again Brett and lightly sour, some doughy malt poking through. Actually not bad, but not sure if thatís what itís supposed to be.

Not much here. Much better wheats on the market. Murky pour. Taste is somewhat bland.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden pour. What was once a big white head quickly falls to nothing. Little lacing. Sour aroma. Little bit of hops. Taste is sour bread and hops.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton - 12 oz bottle. Medium gold, slightly hazy, quickly diminishing white head. Lemons, a brief hint of cloves in the aroma. Flavor has some light pear-like fruity accents, a light touch of yeast, some light banana. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Would be a good summer refresher.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a weizen. Pours hazy tawny with medium white head. Nice floral aroma, medium body, medium carbonation, and thick big bubble lacing. Taste is floral hops, piney hops, bitter finish. Not my thing.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Squat, slope-shouldered longneck with an OK plasticky label. Aroma is rather bland, and whatís there is sweaty with undertones that remind me of Pla Do or modeling clay for some reason. Foggy, light blonde. Filmy head that leaves tiny, pinstripe legs on the sides of the glass. Limp mouthfeel, thin, under-carbonated. Starchy, lightly hopped, generally dry tasting. Unentertaining. ABC Liquors, Betton.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
orange-yellow, a little cloudy but not the yeast brigade of some hefeweizens. Smells a little sour. Weird. Tastes like not much. Smallest bit of fruitiness but overall nondescript. Mediocre.
