2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cloudy golden color with a rapidly diminishing near white head. Little to no carbonation. Aromas were very thin and of light malt, citrus (mostly lemons), and wheat. Flavor was very watered down, hardly any mouthfeel or aftertaste. A disappointing wheat at best.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Glory-god. Apply taste. Mild but palpable texture on tounge. Eye-opening. A winner. Not a blue-ribbon, but at least a red-ribbon winner. Certainly changed my non-beer-aficionado friend’s perspective on things.

Poured a cloudy yellow, and and hazy (yeast). The nose had orange, clove wheat bread and yeast. Not my favorite hefe, . Tasted gritty and a bit dirty.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy yellow/orange appearance. Little to no head. Sort of dirty looking too. Big enticing clove aroma. Palate / flavor is sort of dry and yeasty w/ a little banana. A solid hefe but then again I’m spoiled by Live Oak’s hefe; nevertheless, I’m not sure I’d drink this again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Excellent German hefeweizen, not the brewer’s best work, but very good all the same. Poured a caramel colour with a moderate head. Nice aroma, highly alcoholic but with typical banana and wheat notes. Medium-bodied and mild in flavour, with some warming alcohol in the finish. Beautifully balanced. Some fruit, a hint of cookies and strong tea.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Disappointingly still with a 7up head that fizzled immediately and overwhelmingly sedimented. Flat feel and chalky texture with a lemon-zesty flavor. Bummer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small white head even after the bottle is "jostled" to mix the yeast. Dirty yellow. Strong lemon cookie and yeast aroma. Body is a little flat and chalky. Tastes like lemon cookies. Some zest and refreshing qualities but not as nice as expected.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the bottle this brew pours a very cloudy orange with a medium white head. A very spicy aroma of orange peel, clove, and wheat sits above. Taste starts crisp and refreshing with a smooth orange peel fruit along with the dry wheat malts. This finishes with spicy yeast esters and a crisp hop finish.
