3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a bronze-cast amber with a big head that dissappeared and didnt lace at all (contrary to what the description says). Aroma was rich, fruity, complex. I got notes of peach, honey, yeast, a touch of clove. The highlight of this beer for sure. Flavor was thin, too cidery, only a touch of wheat, with a suck-your-mouth-dry finish that didn’t really go over too well. Where are the banana and clove notes everyone is talking about? I didn’t even come close to those. This beer tasted (and looked) more like a kristalweizen to me.

Bottle. Not the biggest Hefe fan. Poured a hozy golden, small white head. Aroma of banan and cloves, and A touch of bitter ending. Nice.

(draft) Not my favorite in this style, but not really anything wrong with it that I can point out. Just a little subdued in every aspect. Could use something more, but I’m not sure what.

500ml bottle: Suprise! This pours an amber color, definitely darker than expected for a Hefeweizen. Mine had a bit of a fizzy head, but it went to nothing rather quickly. There was no lacing. The main component of the aroma is definitely clove. Not overpowering, but it is up-front of everything else. Perhaps some wheat and spices in the backgroung. It has a good wheat body, with definite notes of clove and banana to the taste. Very drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, a medium dark ambery cloudy pour with nig head. Clovey aroma, packed with spices. Big banana and orange and esters and spices in the flavor - much more spiciness than I would expect in a German hefeweizen.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
17oz - Aroma is yeast, malt, brown sugar, and a little lemon, kind of weak. Color is a yellowish brown producing tons of bubbles, but little head and no lacing. Flavor is brown sugar, yeast and malt with a touch of citrus. Clean palate is refreshing on a hot day. A different hefe, good but not great.

2.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft. I reallý don’t understand the rave about this one. My friends all love it as well, but this is what I thought: Aroma is extremely honey and rich. Definitely the best part of this beer is the nose. Flavor is something of a disappointment. It’s too citrus and palate is downright disgusting. Way too sweet and sticky.

Had this one on draught in Chicago, Illinois. An outstanding wheat beer, as most are! Deep orange color with a thick head, nose of orange and cloves, taste light and wheaty with citrus and tropical fruit. Finishes light. A great summertime brew.

Imagine, being constrained by the use of four ingredients and two are water and yeast, and still being able to make this beer. Probably the best I’ve ever had. The color is just rich and glowing. The nose is full of banana and cloves that give way to rich baking spices and bananas foster. Thank you to the brewery for refermenting in the bottle. Living beer is always a plus and aside from the remarkable freshness this beer also posseses a wonderful champagne-like carbonation that when poured into the PROPER glass at the PROPER temp. the head floats like a cloud all the way down the flute.
