2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Banana clove comes through, but finishes a bit dryer than I’d like. Could boost up the sweetness a bit and/or change the hop profile to add more character. On tap in Minneapolis Airport, Lindbergh Terminal.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy yellow white head. Aroma is phenols, esters, some clove and touch of biscuit. Taste is similar, with esters in the forefront and bread in the finish. Not bad, but nothing too exciting about it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampler at MSP airport, labeled just "Wheat" but definitely a Belgian Wit, so I will rate it here. This was of course the first in the sampler and it was the first I rated. It looks very nice, a very hay, almost dirty, straw-golden color with radiant edges. Araom is spot on for Wit with lots of lemon and coriander and a touch of Belgian yeast dough. Taste is thicker with more coriander coming through. It has a cool and original, almost fuzzy mouthfeel to it, I enjoyed it tremendously.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a sampler on 10/17/08 at the Minneapolis airport. Cloudy yellow in appearance. Aroma - light yeast. This one was rather bland. Some banana and light spices, but overall just basically a common American wheat ale.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample at the MSP location. This beer pours a hazy yellow color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Mild spices and wheat in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of wheat and light fruit and spices. The finish is clean and fruity with a short wheaty aftertaste. Rather humdrum overall.

On tap at the Minneapolis airport. Pours a milky golden with a slight haze. Clove, coriander, and some other spices that I can’t really distinguish. A very spicy flavor of clove and bananas. A subtle hint of bitterness. Light and refreshing body. Not great, but not bad either.
