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.

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 where’s 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.

Yellow, greenish shine. Nearly no head. Nose with obligatory banana - cloves, but OK. Quite sweet, a bit too for my liking, bubblegum. Tinge of mint in the flavour. Medium-bodied. Typical, and it would fit in Germany, very true to the originals.
