3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle through a beer of the month club. Cloudy straw color. Flavor is crisp and light with citrus and mild spice finish. Not much wheat really, but an above average hefeweizen. Light and refreshing. If I could find this around me I’d be happy to drink this on a warm summer day.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a weizen glass and a pint glass at separate times.
The only difference is the larger head in the weizen.
The appearance was a cloudy golden yellow with tinges of orange operating around the edges of the beer.
The smell had a sour blend of banana and clove. For all of the times I’ve had this, I always want to say that there is something different about the banana in this one, like it’s fake or something.
The taste was mainly tart through the banana and clove.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was semi - sharp.
Overall, in my opinion, this is not a very good hefeweizen to me at all.

Tap. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold with a small fizzy white head. The nose is wheaty with minimal esters, just a light banana note. The flavor is OK, a bit bland with some light banana and light yeastiness. Rather heavily bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Rather bland overall, but at least there are no major flaws.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 22.06.2013, tap @ Sebago Brewing Portland:
Small shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly fruity, wheat, yeast, dried fruits, banana, hay, citrus peel. Taste is slightly fresh, wheat, citrus, hay, yeast, some dried fruits and grass. Little bitterness. Fair enough, refreshing.

Bottle. This is a thin and flimsy brew without much going for it. It does have the nice soft mouthfeel of a Hefe but thats about it.

Location: Draft at Cornerstone (Ogunquit), 7/9/13
Aroma: The nose is wheat, orange, lemon, yeast, clove/spice, and some banana
Appearance: This one pours a hazy golden-orange color with a white head
Flavor: The taste is mid-sweet, pretty much on style, with some yeast and spice flavors
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has average carbonation, and a pretty decent feel
This one was a fine hefe. It is on-style and decent, though it is not a special beer.

Pours a clear very pale yellow with a thin white head. Aroma has some clove and dusty/mold notes. Flavor is clovey/yeasty with some juicyfruit...not nearly as bad as the aroma suggests. mouthfeel is medium and the finish has a dry shellfish note.
