2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
11/6/12. 12oz bottle from Publix. Hazy brown pour with a small khaki head that fades but laces decently. Light banana and caramel aroma, but not much else... the flavor is also a bit light, but again shows banana and caramel. There’s also a dingy aspect and a lingering hint of spiciness. Ehhhh.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle and served in my small Ayinger Hefe glass: Pours a brown hue with a lasting lovely beige head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of chocolate, wheat, coconut, pepper, cinnamon, and some bready esters. The taste is sort of like a dunkelweizen with carmel and chocolate malt notes along with some wheat and banana. The spice is mostly a quick hit towards the finish without much staying power. I expected more Midnight Wheat character and roast than this provided and sort of knew that the spice would be tepid. For what it is it is drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Hazy copper with an off white head. Wheaty and sweet malty base, light chocolate, spices, and believe it or not, a little bit of chili pepper heat in the finish. Pretty good.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours an odd-looking, murky reddish brown color, and what little head appears almost instantly dissipates. Not much aroma. This drinks with a weird combination of flavors -- drinking almost like a soda, with a sweet cola-like essence up front. There’ s a musty, malty bit behind that. It’s all a bit muddied to me, and doesn’t come off that well. (#4827, 11/22/2012)

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
(12oz bottle thanks to Dixonian) clear medium amber, wispy bubbles. Nose of wheat, chocolate malt, banana, doesn’t smell half bad. Taste is just ok, banana, wheat, chocolate malt, dry grain, palate finish is just ok, and leaves a less than pleasant taste behind.
