500 ml. Fizzy orange-golden with a lasting half-inch of creamy meringue. Aroma is clean, spicy clove, pineapple, wheat with lemon zest, evergreen resin and slight banana. Flavor is earth-spiced pineapple, orange-banana, and wheat with a large, hop-resin and citrus finish. Sugary frosting on the glass. Light-medium body is acidic, mostly smooth, and hop-dry on the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy gold, very thick and substantial off-white head. Aroma is wheat with touches of fruit and herbs. Flavor is again wheat and fruit, a little malt, no banana notes to speak of, which I was expecting. Dry and a little bitter on the finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle at Toronado in SF. Nicely done collabo between two legit breweries. Pours a golden color with substantial white head. Aroma of floral hops, wheat, and sweet malts. Flavor is complex: sweet malt, wheatiness, banana, pineapple, coriander, clove, and a bitter hoppy finish. Great balance.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Murky gold, almost pea soup green. Very cloudy with a 1 inch white head.
Aroma: Banana, clove, and latex.
Taste: Clove, coriandor, spicy/bitter hops, pineapple and banana.
Mouthfeel: Thick and full bodied.
Overall: This brew tastes better than it smells. I like the tropical notes in the taste, it helps balance out that yeasty clove business going on. I can tell this is well crafted, but not my cup of.....beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mild banana esters join with lemon citrus character and some tart wheat in the nose. Opaque tan body is topped by a fizzy white, large bubbled head that reduces rapidly to a lasting cover with slight lace. Strong banana esters in the flavour which is quite sweet up front before the tart wheat comes out along with fairly strong bitterness. Mild iodine-like flavour appears in the aftertaste as it warms. Very crisp carbonation to the refreshing medium light body. Mild warming. Feels a bit subdued for a weizen bock. Weizen glass. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle. Brewery Creek. Aug-08.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2015 The aroma jumps out first, a nice floral hop smell, followed by a fruity bubble gum flavor, banana, slight spicyness, malts. Hazy yellow, with a hint of orange, less orange than would be typical for the style. Highly carbonated, lots of bubbles, thick white foam, some particulate matter visible. The flavor is sweet, malty, grainy, citrusy. The finish is a decent amount of bittering hops, with a slight metallic taste which is just slightly off putting. Slight alcohol burn at the end, unusual for this style (may account for slight metal taste). Very good beer overall.
