4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Hazy golden color, full white head. Citrusy, peppery hop aroma with distinct hefeweizen yeast and malt profile. Taste of Belgium yeast, very straight forward with the hop presence letting you know this is no ordinary hefe, with subtle malt creaminess that is biscuity and full. A great take on the style that i will continue to buy.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy orange with a huge white head and lots of floaties, great retention and some lacing. Aroma has lots of orange and orange peel with some malty sweetness, flavour develops fermented orange pulp and spicy hops. Sweet finish, not particularly lasting, with some hop bitterness. Light mouthfeel, moderate carbo.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Murky orangy brown with a fizzy orange/white head that stands tall then collapses quickly. Lots of floatables make this light colored beer very murky. Aroma is bready and citrusy, lots of lemon and orange. Flavor is very intense for a wheat beer, again citrus lemon/orange peel, herbal and a little spicy. Its kind of like drinking iced tea. Sweet fruity malts are balanced by strong bitterness in the end. Unusual for a wheat beer. Very tasty, full bodied and interesting.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy orange body, small white head with minimal lace, hoppy vegetable aroma, flavor is very hoppy, this like a German IPA, seriously, spicey orange rind hop flavor, big wheat wine body. alcohol is present but cool and soft, hops are a little edgy however, tastes very homebrew like when you don;t clean out the hop pellet trube too well and it flavors the beer with that spicey vegetable hop flavor, good and interesting, too hop forward for style though

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2009-02-22. Murky dark pastel yellow with a good sized white head and some floaties. (3+) Aroma is surprisingly hoppy, light grassy notes, mild florals, light esters and pale malts. Flavour is similarly hoppy, with a moderate but prominent bitterness throughout, mild sweet malt with just a kiss of esters. (7+) Average to medium bodied palate is pleasantly carbonated. (3+) Pretty solid, bitterness is nice but I find myself looking for more yeasty/estery wheat beer notes. Still, rather nice. Bottle from Village Beer Market

500 ml bottle. Murky, golden color with a large, fluffy white head. Aroma of honey, grass, and some hops. Flavor is nice and mellow. Some notes of wheat, with some peppery spices as a compliment. Finish is bready with some hop bite. Nice beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2009 Hazy gold-orange with a nice fluffy white head. Nose has loads of wheat and citrus, but a nice sweet fruit to round it out, grape that reminds me of the Tsjeeses. Flavor is more bitter, peppery, and banana, notes of wheat and fruit through the moderate finish. A little over-carbonated for me, but this is definitely a special entry, especially that fruity nose.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle pour into weizen glass. Schneider version. Pours dark gold with a huge head. Very cloudy once you swirl and pour. Aroma of banana, clove, citrus, and hop hop hop. Flavor is sweet and spicy, but hoppy and bitter at the end. Mouth is medium bodied, not noticing the alcohol too much. Finish is slightly dry and bitter.
