3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Yellow Ape Craft. This was a really nice dark gold weizen with a biscuit start which moved onto a spicy white finish. It was fairly warming for a 6% beer and had a bit of a bite but quite nice. I liked it. Worth a try.

Draught at Yellow Ape Craft. Good clean banana aroma with some frutiier yeast. Dirty, hazy dark yellow. Deep banana and spice flavors in iniital; a bit muddy and dirty in mid; final has strong fruit and then settles out smoothly. Medium body. Good frutiness and solid mouthfeel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at 1020. Dark amber and cloudy with a fine head. Nutty, biscuity nose, chocolate, clove, tons of cinnamon, light funk. Like a cinnamon cookie. Spicy, fruity flavor, cinnamon and love, toasted bread. Lightly tart and funky. Good, though not quite perfect. Approaching a dunkelweizen in color and taste but not quite.
