4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A wonderful example of German weissbier, with a lighter color than SchneiderWeisse, it goes better with meals. Not a highly carbonated but great banana/clove nose and fantastic taste. One of the best.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This hefe is well carbonated, lightly hazy, bright-deep-gold color without the yeast in the glass. The head is off white. Clove dominates the aroma, and there is a hint of banana as well as a bit of grain and a hint of astringency. The taste is fruity, clove-like, spicy, sharp, effervescent, slightly acidic, and a bit sweet. The carbonation is tingly and there is an astringent note in the finish. This is a tasty Hefeweizen. I like the spicy notes that are found here. A very refreshing summer quaffer.

Pours cloudy dark yellow, almost orange with a medium white head. Not as carbonated as other weizens I've tried. Retention is alright. Yeasty, wheat malt aroma, along with the typical lolly-banana smell. Theres a citrus (almost cascade hop) aroma there too though. Mouthfeel is medium, a little watery but still smooth. Quite tart flavour. Lots of wheat malt flavour, yeasty spices and citrus. Nice lingering dry finish. Very refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden orange, medium white head and plenty of carbonation all around. Yeast and wheat aroma (of course) plus citrus and celery. Starts a little sweet, spicy, smokey at times, a bit like a lager, more firm than other hefeweizens, dry finish. Not your typical hefeweizen, good all around.

A bit cloudy and a slight amber color. This beer is great. A nice wheaty flavor with a great citrus finish. It's one of the best Hefe-Weizen I've tried.

Man this is a good brewery. I love what the bottle conditioning did for this weisse. Just a little sweetness on the back end, or I would have rated it even higher.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy pale yellow pour with a fizzy white head. Didn't like the sound at all. Bubbles rise to the top. Great aroma though! Yeast, malt, and some wheat all in the aroma. Smooth taste. Very strong malt flavor. Some bubble gum, banana, and citrus linger as well. Overall not bad, but could be a little better!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy medium gold, decent white head, some rather unappealing chunks, and I do mean chunks, of yeast floating around in it. More than the usual by far. Some even rose up, hit the foam on the surface, and disintegrated in the carbonation, staining the head with streaks of brown. But, hey, it smelled good, estery with a good dose of clove and some banana. Very estery, with bubble gum, banana, citric fruit, and cloves working nicely with each other, ending in a satisfying sour twang. An underrated Hefe.

bottle-sampled at the Grapevine Market, Austin TX-nice banana aroma and cloudy yellow appearance, but darker tham most hefe's. I need to have a larger sample of this one! Banana is the big note here with some subtle hops.
