3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle generously given to my by my friend Derek. 092812 038809 stamped on the bottle. The pour is a lightly hazed yellow golden with a one inch white head that falls pretty quick. The aroma is grain, light lemon citrus, and a hint of earthiness. Generally, faint nose. The taste is wheat grain, sweet banana fruit, light spice clove and an earthy mineral in the aftertaste. The flavor picks up considerably from the nose. The palate is medium bodied, nice un-filtered mouth feel, and the dry mineral finish. Easy drinking, decent enough Hefe. Thanks for putting this in my care package, Derek.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was a decent hefe. The aroma was very nice. Strong thick banana with just a hint of light malt. Pour was a little disappointing. Light, clear macro-lager gold with a one finger white head. Looked like a Budweiser. Taste was surprisingly good. Nice banana and light malt flavors. The finish is a little quick, but this is a nice American made hefeweizen. Not as good as a Franziskaner or Ayinger, but good intro to the style.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Straight from the bottle. Aroma is sweet wheat and some clove. Taste is sweet with a touch of spice. Wheat, clove, banana fruitiness, and a nice tartness. Body is pretty light, and hella easy to drink. A unique offering that isn’t as banana forward was many american hefeweizens.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lemon zest in the aroma and a rather clear gold-yellow in appearance. The flavor is of bananas and yeast. A relatively subtle hefeweizen, not near the best but still pretty good.
