2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes.
Pours a hazy light yellow color with a white head and a tiny bit of lacing as it moves down the glass. Nose brings some banana and light citrus as well as a tiny bit of clove spice. Taste is really quite light with a bit of wheat and banana. Light feel with good carbonation levels. Drinks quite well as there is nothing offensive and it goes down smoothly.
Serving type: on-tap

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at brewhouse. Just not good. A nasty cloudy color, and a gross yeastiness of the flavor. Not my style of beer, and one of the worst examples of the style I have had to date.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at RB Arlington. Pours a cloudy goldy, slightly pale. Big fluffy head. Nose has phenols, plastic and bananas. Some distant sweetness as well. On taste, the phenols are a bit astringent and lacks the big hefe punch of the greats, though does have a nice full body and some good banana notes. Decent Hefe.

Very weak, watery heffe. No bie or spice at all even with a lemon to try and pull some flavors out it was bleak and univiting.
