3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Hazy rich goldenrod pour with a tall white head, good retention and modest lacing. Aroma of fresh banana, vanilla, mild clove and just a touch of yeast. Banana and clove follow through to the flavor along with citrus note. Crisp mouthfeel along the lines of a kristalweis and a clean, flavorful finish. Might be the best American example of a German hefeweizen I’ve had.

12oz bottle. cloudy yellow pour with a thin off-white head that leaves a ring. nice aroma of wheat, spices, bananas, yeast and hint of lemon. the taste is what you’d expect - a well balanced mix of sweet malts, banana, lemon and spice. creamy light to medium palate with a tiny bit of tingly carbonation. very drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Really nice hazy yellow color. Good example of a hefeweizen. The taste has the traditional fruity character of vanilla, banana and orange. Big body for this kind of beer. It’s a little too clean and uncomplex to compete with the best german hefes.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
One of the best stateside versions of the Hefe, this one hits on all points. Aroma is full of banana, wheat malt, clove and a but of bubblegum. Looks great in a glass with its cloudy maize body floating a big fluffy white head. Flavor is full and round with a soft mouthfeel, and just enough tartness to keep you coming back. A little sweetness creeps in over time. Well done!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Cindirene’s. Pours hazy deep gold with white clingy head and lively carbonation. The nose is grainy pale malt, hopcitrus, spice. Tastes crisp, pale malty, hoppy, citric, and spicy, with some clovey and banana, and a very well balanced mouthfeel. I bought only one of these, and I wish I’d bought a whole sixer. Very solid.
