3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Great big yeasty aroma, nicely spiced, with the clove and banana, taking the forefront as your would expect. Banana bread maltiness, slightly sweet with some lemony acidity, balanced out by just the right amount of carbonation. Decent for a ballpark beer

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ Coors Field. Cloudy gold pour with a creamy head. The smell is wonderful, even out of the plastic cup itís served in. Deep notes of banana and vanilla mingle with lighter notes of clove and fruit. The medium body is creamy and smooth with more banana and bready malts. Really tastes like banana cream pie, with a hint of lemon. This really is a good example of a Hefe and would gladly drink it time and time again over the other BMC offered at the ballpark. Now only if they would serve their beers throughout the park and not just on the main concourse!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Head is mostly lasting.
Body is hazy light yellow.
Aroma is moderately malty (bread), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with a strong note of banana, light note of clove.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Iím being maybe a little enthusiastic with my score, as itís quite sweet and a little one-dimensional in the nose (banana, banana, banana, and bread). However, it is unquestionably enjoyable and rich for the style, and I enjoyed it the most of the three I had in this session.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Strong banana cream pie aroma with notes of coconut and lemon and light, spicy cloves. Opaque yellow body is topped by a decent, white, fine bubbled head that recedes to ring. Banana flavour is strong with underlying, lightly tart wheat. Medium light body with strong, crisp carbonation. Sampled on tap at the Sandlot at Coors Field.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at brewery. Pours a cloudy gold with good carbonation and an aroma of bubblegum and banana. Flavor is a good balance of bubblegum, banana, and clove. Palate is slippery. Good, but not great.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A uniform white cap is worn by this truly murky golden body. Limited maltiness in the nose, but the yeast procures abundant banana and cloves notes into a globally very bubble gummy desserty and crusty wheat field flavor profile. Medium bodied, ful small bubbled carbonation, a bit short in flavor, but accurate and tasty.

At the brewery: Poured cloudy yellow with a small white head. Mild banana and spice aroma. Nice full flavored hefe- light banana and moderately spicy. Very well made, this is a very good beer. Not surprising Sandlot won some GABF medals.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very hazy light yellow appearance. Fresh pale malt aroma with light banana notes. Sweet, creamy character, fresh-tasting with the esters and phenols kept rather subdued, leaving the focus to the pale malts.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
09.30.05 Tap at brewpub. Super clouded white-yellow looks like a glass of grapefruit juice. Great aroma and flavors of dried bananas and toffee, hints of bubblegum, but whereís the spice, just a touch? Full body but plenty of eff from mid to end. Bit chalky as it finishes is somewhat off-putting.

Draught at the Sandlot. Cloudy deep straw body with a pure white head. Aroma has medium banana and bubble gum esters with a soft clove note and good yeast character. Pineapple citrus flavor with a smooth phenolic and lightly bitter finish. Medium, wheaty texture. Solid, stylish hefe.
