3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2007 Bottle conditioned and courtesy of the LCBO. Burnished copper appearance, with a frothy white head. Wheat and banana in the aroma. Lovely fresh wheat taste in a flavour accented with spices and yeastiness. Crisp finish and refreshing.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2015 50cL bottle. Pours a dark, hazy amber color, darker than most hefes. Still has some citrus and banana in the aroma and flavor. Well done.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orange/coper colored, clearer and darker than most hefes with GREAT, lasting head. Wheaty, vanilla, banana yeasty apple scents appear and are overshadowing a subtle spice aroma. NIce and soft to taste with a balanced, banana wheat body featuring a apple souring crispness towards the finish. While this beer doesn’t look like most Hefeweizens I have had, it fits the style well and presents a drinkable and balanced example of the style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A gorgeous, hazy orange with a fairly big, fruity-yeasty nose. Just a little sweet, with cereal and bubble gum aspects. Chewy but refreshing and tasty.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My new favourite Wheat Beer. Amber with a large white head. Smells of cloves, fruits and hops. Tastes of cloves, nutmeg, citrus and bananas. Lightly carbonated, but surprisingly smooth and well balanced. Recommended!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is moderately strong cloves and sweet cream. Muddy ochre color, extremely thick white head. Very good balance of sweet and tart banana, slightly meaty at mid palate. Weak finish. Good, but I expected more.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amazing wheat beer. Thicky and creamy. Gorgeous aroma of flowers (elderberry?), vanilla, wheat and honey. Medium body; very smooth. Reminds me of a Paulaner Heffe. What wheat beers should aspire to be.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Sampled in 2004.] Should be a hefe of high quality, but thisone had too much carbonation, then it got some bad notes. But it deserves a rerating later.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2008 Poured from bottle into Weizen glass. Thick head, inviting clove aroma. The full mouthfeel of the wheat and the carbonation with my salad was quite refreshing and quenching. After having this a few times over the months, this beer does have a darker and "dirtier" feel than a Weihenstephaner and has a hint more of a diluted flavor. I prefer the Weihenstephaner Hefeweisen. But this is still a very good weissbier.
