3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Found this in a drugstore on Manhattan only later to experience that it was at least 18 months past it’s best of date. Presumably this does not affect the flavours which I found extremely fresh and fruity as in the best German Weissbiers. Orangey almost amber in colour with a decent if not exactly overwhelming head. Excellent.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Syrupy floor polish nose and flavor, with a soft, smooth witbier flavor that make it’s not completely awful... fluffy marshmallow flavors, oily chemical scents and a resin-like coating of hop oil, as best I can desribe it... that typical SA flavor.

Boston Oktoberfest 2004. I enjoyed this. Wonderful banana notes in both aroma and taste, smooth and crisp, I regret not getting another pint.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours cloudy yellow with a nice head. Aroma is citrus and a little banana. Flavor is good. Nice; sweet, yeasty, with nice banana and fruit finish. A little more tat would be nice. A little light and watery on the mouth. A pretty good wheat for a large US maker.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nothing special about this. A typical american wheat that was crisp with a mild fruity aroma.No cloudiness at all. I WISH mine had the big banana taste that others have noticed. All I caught was a hint at the finish. Drinkable but I won’t be buying again.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tiny, departing head, amber color. Tinny, coppery, spicy aromas, slight citrus, a hint of anise...and BANANAS! Yes, the Southern Bavarian weizenbier style does have that banana/clove component, but the Boston boys stuck a whole banana tree in the mash! Flinty taste & texture, thin body, not much for the tongue to do. No yeast, either. I don’t enjoy weizens sans hefe. Actually, it says unfiltered, but I can neither see nor taste the yeast. Lousy finish. Not a good beer, at all. Yes, they have bananas, but not much more.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Might as well call this Banana beer. AFter the inital attack of banana, I thought this had a good taste. Fuller bodied than most wheat beers.

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nose is extremely mild--basically non-existant. Pour is a hazy blonde with w a tiny white head. Start is sweet--lots of banana. Finish is smooth without much else going on. 1 dimensional.
