COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With its amber-mahogany coloring and streaked with fine top-fermented yeast, this beer has a fine, persistent head that adheres well to the glass. It is pleasantly fruity with a typical top-fermented smell, an aroma of clove and nutmeg apple tantalizes the nose. On the tongue it is fresh, clean, full-bodied, harmonious and well-balanced. It finishes with a light, delicate taste of bitters leaving behind a sour impression.

nick76 (4290) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2005
UPDATED: APR 13, 2005 Pint bottle served cold. Aroma is strong with hops and alcohol and some roasted malt. Is a golden brown color but lacks cloudiness. Nice frothy head. Tastes is somewhat like English ale in that its taste is almost chocolate like; that is no doubt from the well toasted malts in this one. Nice hop character that adds a mixture of bitterness and spiciness. Decent alcohol presence as well. On the down side it is a little too thin and could stand to be a little sweeter but overall a very good beer. Weak bitter aftertaste.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - APR 12, 2005
Pours amner wth a healthy head into a hefe-weizen glass. Smell is of banana and coriander. Taste is citrussy with the wheat elements brought to the nose in each gulp. This is a favorite of mine in the warmer weather months.

GarethYoung (1109) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 11, 2005
aromas of sweet fruits, apricot, a little banana, but not a heavy smell has a citric sharpness, also cloves and a light spicyness. lively and clean mouthfeel with a sharp finish, a really nice hefeweizen and a definite summer favourite.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5168) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2006 I have heard of this beer for some time, and being a wheat beer fan I have been looking forward to trying it. Sampled from a 16.9 oz brown bottle this beer poured a chestnut color with a large pinkish head. The aroma was sour malt. The flavor is light sour malt with a hint of citrus and a light wheaty finish. It is an ok hefeweizen but nowhere near the best in the class.

hefevice (72) - Brisbane beer desert, AUSTRALIA - APR 8, 2005
Bottle. Pours with a massive white head like a proper weizen, however the colour is a few shades darker than your average hefe. Big banana and clove on the nose with a bit of malt in the background. Sweetness is reasonably low for the style and phenolic clove tones are very noticable on the finish. Aftertaste does not stay around as long as my reference hefe (Weihenstephan). Mouth feel is soft and light, not overly carbonated. A solid hefe and very drinkable.

fordest (2014) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - APR 5, 2005
Draft at San Diego Brewing Co. Cloudy, dark amber with a very nice, lasting head. A lot of fruity aroma that carries over into the flavor. Some spice in the aroma as well. A nice even bitter aftertaste.

MrHop (4) - New Jersey, USA - APR 3, 2005 does not count
This beer has an unfavorable spice and aftertaste. Lightly cloudy, not a true beer - taste no hops and very little malt

sirchris (42) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2005
Small off-white head, cloudy/murky body. Nice aroma, sweet and spicy. Medium body with a thin texture. Lively carbonation. The taste starts sweet and ends with a acidic/spicy flavor. Pretty refreshing, but not a favorite.
