4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a chalky yellow into the glass with a booming white head. Aroma is unbelievably fresh hefewezen yeast. Lots of spice and banana. Excellent! Flavor is excellent wheat with a citrusy orange note. Some cereal taste. The body is exquisite. High carbonation gives this beer a spritzy body. This will be a staple in my refrigerator from now on!

Pours a hazy straw color. Aroma is funky with lots of pungent yeast in the nose. Flavor is, well, spicy and flawless. Lots of banana and clove funk. Hefty body for a hefeweizen. Finishes dry with plenty of the aroma lingering on the pallet. I am wowed, even for SN.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Pours a dense, hazy gold with a sizeable white head. Nose is loaded with clove, bread dough, lemon and has a faint hint of banana. Nice carbonation/body. Taste has a bit more of a toasted malt accent to compliment the other attributes. Very smooth, well balanced with the lemon and clove notes coming through perfectly.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle: weizen: pours a cloudy, dirty orangy yellow leaving a soapy head. Nose reveals cloves, sweets sugars, citrus. Loads of clove, yeast, spices on the front tongue... some bitters, banana at the end. Medium to high carbonation helps to rinse this clean, also a mild creamy texture. Nice brew! Surprised by SN on this one.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy orange-yellow with a med-large head. An attractive beer. The aroma is fruity, with some yeast and banana coming through. Pretty complex taste started off by a sweet front, yeast, banana and citrus coming through. Some wheat on the back end. A fuller body and this would be a great brew. Pretty good.
