3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
250ml, tap at the brewpub. Pale yellow coloured body. Very solid lacing, the whole glassware was covered by a white layer. Wheat fruity aroma with joining notes of clove. Taste of citrus and wheat with a spicy backdrop. Dry-bitter, lemony ending. Refreshing (Oslo, 24.05.2012).

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Smallish white head. Hazy opaque yellow body with light carbonation. Light milky floral strawberry aroma with gooseberry jam and bread notes. Dry-sweet mealy papery floral taste. Mid-to-light body. Mealy, fizzy mouthfeel. Dry papery mealy aftertaste with fruity gooseberry notes. Lovely aroma, but intense paper flavour drowns out the good parts. Shame, because this could have been magnificent. (0.25l draft at brewpub.)

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Hazy light yellow color with a white head. Good lacing.
Aroma: Mild nose. Maybee a bit to cold. Light yeast and some citric notes.
Palate: Medium body. Moderate sweet and a mild bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Mild caramel malt, wheat, yeast and light fruity. Some citric notes.
Overall impression: I do think that even the ladies prefer a little bit more powerful Hefeweize. Anyway a nice easy drinkable beer.
Personal stats: On tap @ source.

On tap at the brewpub. Hazy golden colour, low head. Yeasty aroma, typical hefeweizen notes of cloves and banana. The flavour is also typical hefeweizen, but with more hops than common for the style. Too fresh and yeasty brew?

On tap at the brewpub. Hazy yellow, strong bitterness. Lemon rid. Banana, spices, fruit, the hops firmly in control over any soft wheat feel there might be in the background.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Schouskjelleren. It poured a hazy golden-yellow liquid with a white head. Coriander and spices on the nose. Similar smell. Felt like a mix between a wit and a weiss bier.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
In short: A full bodied classic german hefe hopped like an APA. I like
How: Tap at Trattoria Popolare, Oslo Norway (restaurant neighbour of the Schouskjelleren brewpub)
The look: Clear blond body topped by a medium white head with good retention and leaving lots of lacings on the glass
In long: Nose has strong yeasty banana esters with the typical signature I would expect from a classic german hefe, but then you add to this a good amount of citrusy and grassy hops. Taste is more of the same, you start with a full bodied quality german hefe with nice fresh bananas and all, and then you beef it up with a generous hopping, the type of citrusy/grassy hops I would expect from an APA. And in this case I thought the german hefe and IPA-style hopping worked in perfect harmony, not a clash of style at all. I liked this beer a lot, purists will scream murder. The name “Hello Ladies” seem like a rather straightforward pick-up line, I’ve never tried this one, I only try my pick-up lines with women when I’m on a plane because they’re not allowed to have pepper spray on board.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy, light yellow colour. Aroma is wheaty and yeasty. Flavour has a great citrusy tang. It’s a fresh taste and is also quite sharp and gassy. Perfect thirst quencher.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2012 On tap at Schouskjelleren. Pours slightly hazy light golden with a white head. Aroma of banana, cloves, citrus and yeast. Fruity and a bit sweet with a sour dimension. Slightly hoppy and well carbonated. Quite nice and refreshing.
