2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Malt and clove on the aroma.
Golden color. Head dissipates quickly. Looks thick for the style.
Clove... Malt. Light. Bit of bitterness.
Palate is thin. Watery.
Overall an ok beer. Light. Easy to drink.... Not a lot of flavor. Malt on the finish is ok. Overall not bad but not impressive.

Bottle from mixed 12 pack. Labeled as "Snow Wheat". Pours a slightly cloudy golden. Small white head. Pleasant aroma of bananas and cloves. Very light palate. Flavor of bananas and fruit. Definitely drinkable, but not very satisfying.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
*Copying my Snow Wheat review from BeerAdvocate, I didnít realize that these were the same beer.*
Bottled 10/08/13. Poured into a shaker pint. Part of a $10 Mix-a-Six.
Appearance: Super hazy yellow color... can only see the shadow of my fingers behind the glass. Has a pretty bubbly head that goes away pretty quickly. Few bubbles remaining on top of the beer for only a few minutes. Absolutely no lacing. I really like the color of it, but thatís about it... rarely do I ever see a beer that looks completely flat.
Smell: A sort of sour banana taffy aroma almost, with a bit of caramel malts. I figure itís the yeast strain giving that "twang." Not much else to speak of on the nose in this beer -- simple, but pleasing.
Taste: Like the smell, but the banana tastes sweeter and more fresh than it smells. Banana beginning until the end, when a bit of caramel adds a little something. Sweeter than it is bitter, but not terribly unbalanced at all. Aftertaste is banana with a slight spice and malt flavor on the back of the tongue.
Feel: Low/medium carbonation, and pretty thin mouthfeel. The thin texture of Snow Wheat doesnít bother me as much as the low carbonation does -- I just expected a little bit more.
Itís a solid Hefeweizen that offers up plenty of banana. Thereís a bit of malt and the tiniest amount of spice on the finish, but itís a very simple beer overall. Could be a nice beer to session. Itís simple, and nothing exactly stands out in Snow Wheat, but itís a good beer Iíd have again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet aroma of wheat, with a touch of banana. Pours a slightly hazy pale straw with a quickly fading white head. More banana in the flavor, with just a hint of clove. Light bodied, and easy drinking. Pretty middle of the road, not bad, but nothing about it really stands out.

Good Hefe. Good mouth, and not too carbonated. All the right smells and tastes are there. Nothing sticks out, which is a good thing sometimes...

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottled as Snow Wheat. Pours a translucent golden with minimal head. Scent is yeast, wheat, banana. Taste is similar, pretty light. As expected my least favorite from the sampler pack. Not my fave but I guess tolerable for a hefe.

Had this as "Snow Wheat" - the winter version. Really nice Hefe with fresh bananas by the bunch. I cut my teeth on Hefeís back in the day when I lived in Chicago and it was a bold choice versus the usual can of Old Style. Ah, the memories...
