Taste like a very dry Kölsch! tastes pretty close to Reissdorf Kolsch. I like lawn mower better though

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. pours hazy gold with a sizzling-away head. Nose is clove, toast and lemon honey. Flavor is earthy honey with some spicy clove and banana dryness. Light-medium body has medium carbonation and a good balance. Not great, but amazing what an improvement the Bavarian yeast made to the base Lawnmower beer which I drank (and almost finished the whole 12 oz!) just prior to this one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour on tap, slightly hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of grass, bread, dough into some white fruit, orange, some slight biscuit notes as well. Taste was a mix of dough, bread, hints of yeast into some fruit, vanilla, touch of spice, finishing fairly sweet, slightly dry.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 FL. OZ. bottle. Mostly clear dull yellow, lasting thin white foam. Fruity yeasty biscuity aroma. Taste is quite fruity, Hefe yeast is somewhat overpowering, bready bland malts, some citrus. Soft carbonation, light-medium bodied, low hopped. An uneccessary hybrid. MLF (More Lagerboy Friendly)

Interresting beer (even more when you drink it expecting another experience!). The hefeweizen yeast on this beer has really done its job. Nice banana aroma and refreshing beer.

355ml twist off bottle. Pee gold with a fizzy quickly dissipating head. The aroma is tart with grain husk and a hint of sugar. Flavor has some banana and spice notes. Perhaps a large red kristalweizen? It drinks okay. Not like a koelsch but decent. Edit; upon entering my notes here I see it is indeed what I thought it was and on purpose, phew.

Dear brewer: If you are going to do wheat beer, do wheat beer. If you are going to do Kölsch, stick to Kölsch. Fails as a Kölsch (as does lawnmower) and is actually a run of the mill, watery wheat beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated on 02-18-2013 at Saint Arnold B.C. This draft beer has a small white head with a lengthy retention, transparent straw body, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is yeast, grainy, grassy, banana, spice, clove, and malt. The flavor is yeast, clove, spice, banana, sweet, and malt. The mouthfeel is smooth and dry. This beer is light-medium bodied. This beer is quaffable and a session beer. It has a nice flavor to it and is worth trying.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crisp, super golden coloured body with a very slight haze to it, all with a single centimetre tall pure white head. Aroma of grass, hay, funk and a ton of yeast - more notes from that than anything, but a subtle banana smell as well on the finish - very nice. Light-bodied; Strong grassy and hay flavour at first with a large banana and clove freshness, some subtle white pepper and coriander seed freshness and a hint of light alcohol at the end. Aftertaste is very muted with the wheat, grass, yeast and banana flavours coming out by far the strongest, meanwhile a subtle sweetness and airy freshness finishes it off. Overall, a very nice refreshing summer beer that says kolsch but tastes like a well-balanced and more flavourful german hef. I sampled this stubby twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whip-In in Austin, Texas on 05-May-2014 for US$2,69 sampled at home in Washington on 18-October-2014.
