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.

nice white head that disappears quickly... after swirling and mixing the yeast up, it became a brown diarrhea-looking beer with lots of yeast chunks floating around. medium palate. not as fruity as many hefeweizens i’ve had. spicy, a hint of banana with ardent hops at the finish. not bad...

Pailhead (4622) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - MAY 3, 2004
Bottle: Aroma was lemon, banana, and cloves. Poured a dark brownish orange with a white head that lasted less than a minute. No lacing. Very lemony in taste. A little sour. Cloves in taste too as well as wheat. Highly carbonated. Short lived aftertaste that is mildly sour with a slight bitterness.

Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2004
Bottled. Murky... big head. Wheaty/spicy aroma. Tastes of mild wheat, which is good as most wheat beers seem a little heavy on it for me. Good wheatbeer

A beautiful, dark amber colored beer with a long lasting creamy head. Though it is a refreshing weissbier, it is a bit too watery for my taste

Just wasn't impressed. Head ran away quickly. Dark orange, clove and yeast aroma. No lacing. Clove taste, highly carbonated. I guess I would pass on this one.

Good, unremarkable from what I know about wheat beers, which isn't much. The usual clove and faint sour tastes are present. The taste gets stronger as the beer builds up, and I had to pour out the last inch or so of sediment.

Dark amber body with a white head. Banana nose. Some trace of smoke. Bitter. Nothing that I'd care to have again.

Pours bronze orange with lage head. Banana, citrusy nose. clearer than expected for a hefe-weizen. Fruity, malty body.

JK (4353) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2004 This one was a disappointment. It started off well with a great white head, and a dark orange color with lots of yeast. The aroma was very light with citrus. For flavor there was not enough wheat taste. Thick and heavy, which is how I like my hefeweizen, but this lacked the aroma and flavor to be really good. If you want to pour a beer and look at it this would be a good choice.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2012 Bottled. Good aroma of lemon and wheat. The beer pours a hazy muddy light brown. The taste is typical hefeweize except it’s too thin. The light fruity notes are there - lemon, banana etc. but it is a bit uninspiring.Score 2.9
