3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Unassuming, but authentic Bavarian hefe nose - mild clove with banana-nut-bread yeastiness prominent in nose. Murky gold, with disappointing soapy cream head that faded very quickly. Yeast and wheat give clove & very mild banana mix with weak mealiness- as per style. Sharp wheat acidity seems to meld with fruit notes of banana and yeast esters - works with the ingredients and style

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Iím all excited because this one is a truly organic beer - yea! It sure looks delicious and meaty, with his heavily clody, yeasty, dark yellow-hue, with some majoryeast-floaties. The aroma is quite spicy, and full of wheat. On eo fthe best Iíve had. Not too much citrus, and the spices/wheat are well balanced with a honey-filled, malty sweetness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Iíve been on an organic food kick lately, so I finally picked this up - cloudy golden/orange pour, with a large, well-sustained, foamy head - semi-biscuity, gingerbread-like aroma, with clove and other spices - light tartness up front, followed very quickly by the expected banana and clove flavors, along with slight phenolics/band-aid flavors (but not enough to detract from the enjoyment) - a hint of smokiness through the middle - hints of vanilla, perfume/floral notes, wheat and other grains near the end - a well-balanced, flavorful hefe.

Bottle Yellow pour with lots of bubbles and a thick white micro bubble head that died quickly, no lacing. Light citrus and wheat aroma with some spices. Bit of banana and clove in the finish. Pretty good but semi-average hefe.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2007 16.9 oz bottle into a wine glass. Pours a very hazy and cloudy amber orange color with a bit of yeast sediment at the bottom of the glass. Aroma is very yeasty and banana filled. The flavor is exactly what a hefeweizen should be. A nice and light banana flavor coated in clove spice, with a nice yeast kick towards the finish. It ends in another clove spice kick. Fairly carbonated. This is by far one of my favorite hefeweizens!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rather clear with just a touch of haze. Very fizzy head fizzed to nothing very quickly. Aromas were very matly, some spice, light fruit. Touch of banana. Banana in the flavor as well, with a definite wheat twang. More strong malt with some breadiness in there. Average.
