OK, starting to run out of descriptors for all the classic german hefes we had on this trip. A shocking number, and they were all in the good-but-not-great range, which makes a detailed review even harder. This was in the lower-middle end of that range :)"

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewery in San Marcos, served in a tasting glass. Pours cloudy straw with a medium white head that fades to a thin cover and leaves a medium amount of fine lace. On the nose there are notes of coriander, banana, wheat and Belgian spice, along with mild malt. The flavour is medium sweet with banana and fruit, along with subtle Belgian spice. The finish is long and spicy with a distinct banana note. On the palate, it is medium in body with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. overall, this is a decent smooth hefeweizen with a nice banana note. Would make for a nice summer sipper. 2013-03-22

A slightly cloudy pour with a white head. Pretty decent banana aroma with a slight lemon tartness. Sweet bubblegum, moderate clove spiciness, and sweet bread/malt, and candied orange. Lots of banana flavor along with a nice sweet bready character. Lightly watery, some citrus zest, and a bit of bubblegum, clove, and a light tartness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the brewpub. This beer is a hazed yellow-gold color with a miniscule white head that dissipates to an island in no time. Spotty lacing on the glass. The aroma is lightly wheaty with notes of yeast and banana. Medium, clean body with fruit and wheat flavors. Somewhat astringent hops show up at times as well. The finish is wheat and fruit with a yeast aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.
