3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice to have something a bit different from Sierra Nevada, a nice classic wheat beer, good for summer, with a distinct cloudy appearance with primarily orangy-banana-like smell and flavor. A bit of bacon drippings even! Moderate white head. Slightly thin on the aftertaste.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From bottle. Nice banana clove aroma, bready and yeasty, light and fresh. Light characteristic sulfur notes with malty undertones. Cloudy butterscotch-amber with thin foamy-creamy lacing off-white head. Medium watery body with medium-high carbonation, just short of fizzy. Starts bready and wheaty, with a great classic Hefeweizen flavor. Banana and clove, light carbonic acidity, and clean finish. Very light hop bitterness, almost undetectable. Full in flavor, sweet and refreshing. This is a very nice beer and really captures the essence of good German wheat beer. It could be just a bit more full bodied, but other than that itís a keeper.

From a 12 oz bottle this poured a very cloudy gold with a very fat white head and thick lacing. Nose of banana and soap. Mouthfeel somewhat thin. Flavor is full of citrus and ripe fruit. Hops in the finish. Fine version of this style.

Bottle. Thick head. Cloudy dark yellow. Banana aroma. Flavour is mostly banana then lemon and yeast. Solid but not spectacular. Appearance and palate keep the score high.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2010 Pours a beautiful hazy gold with plenty of yeast floating throughout; large white head. Aroma of bananas, cloves, soap, and bubblegum. Slightly peppery banana flavor up front with a nice citrus and spicy finish. A little too much carbonation, but otherwise an excellent American-brewed hefe.
