3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle courtesy of an extra via trade on BA. Thanks. Pours a nice hazed golden amber hue, a gentle darker orange amber glow in the body with some frothy offwhite/beige head that dies to a loose layer, dies down, laces small overall. Aromas are decent fruity ester, touches of citrus, melon, apple, and clove. Some decent American hop varieties with spicy yeasty life, some dryness, bready malt and flaked wheat. A touch of honey, orange, and faint banana. Citrusy grapefruit, some dryness, and straw. Initial is lighter end of the fold, some bready malt, flaked wheat, banana and apple, touches of pear, lemon, and florals. A gentle to decent hopping tickles the palate, some decent yeastiness, clove. Touches of bread, straw, gentle honeycrisp. The backend is a bit dry and yeasty, straw and a bit of grass. Faint spiciness lingers on, dry hops and yeast. Some crisp bready and flaked wheat malts, grainy and gentle fruit sweetness. That kick of American hops on the nose gives some complexity, makes this pretty inviting. While the Hefe itself doesn’t offer much bitterness or fruit, it is pretty tasty and drinkable with some nice fruit, a bit of bitterness and pizazz overall. Solid.

Cask @ GBBF 2013. The pour’s murky yellow with a tight white head. The nose is straight banana pie. A bit of green grass root. The taste is is fully of pissy lemon cake. Moderate banana. A bit dull on the palate. Lacks carbonation. Medium body, a bit sticky. Merely OK.

Decent hefeweizen. I’m not sure the Amarillo hops added that much character. The nose was hoppier than normal but the wheat character was still there as well. It was a standard golden yellow with a white head. Average weight and carbonation. There was wheat, citrus, clove and banana with a stronger hop bitterness at the end. Good, just not great.

Draft at GBBF 2013 - London. Pours cloudy yellow with a mild, white cream head. The nose has light wheat, some juicy lemon. Light to medium sweet flavor with grapefruit, lemon and modest wheat. Light-medium in body with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with more juicy citrus a la grapefruit, lemon and melon. Nice stuff.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle:   Straw, thin white frothy head, little lacing.   Strong mash nose, no real clove or banana.   Seems a little mealy with slight cat urine.   Taste aint much better.   Nothing about this screams Hefe, let alone German.   Average body and mouthfeel.   Finishes like sweet mash.   Is this beer done?   Sweet mealy mash beer, or maybe an overly sweet small beer of some off flavored German Hefe that happens to have no clove or banana.   Not what I was expecting... at all.

Just the sort of interesting experiment I’m always whining that St. Arnold doesn’t do enough of. Wheat, lemon, banana and spices. Hmm, sounds like a tangy banana bread.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Mildly Hazy Golden Straw Hue, Passes Most Light, Very Thin White Head Ring, Almost No Lacing
S: Wheat, Oranges
T: Oranges, Lemons, Mild Wheat
M: Mediocre Carbonation, Light to Medium Bodied, Mildly Sweet
Overall, a somewhat of a let down as the carbonation was very low and the taste was a little weak.
