3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer pours a cloudy yellow-orange with a small white head. The aromas are light bananas, lemon zest and slight cloves (although not that strong). The flavors are light bananas and mild cloves. While this is a great representation of the German style hefe by an American brewer, it did fall a little short for me but I did like it. Cheers

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours hazy golden with little white head.
Banana bubblegum nose, quite nice.
Flavour isn’t as full as I’d like, but all the banana and bubblegum is there. Light carbonation contributes a silky mouthfeel, body slightly watery. Finish is quite fruity.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured a cloudy yellow with a creamy white head that had a thin layer lasting and left light lace. Very nice wheat, citrus, and clove blend in the aroma. The flavor was much the same but just a step back compared to the aroma. Medium body and a light clove aftertaste.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Cloudy golden, no head. Some bubblegum and banana esters. Sweet with fairly clean mouthfeel, notes of glue, slight fruityness. The clean mouthfeel makes it a bit sterile. To style, but falling within the lower end of the spectre.

Kind of a sweeter, crisper more flavorful version of hoegaarden and without the aftertaste. Good stuff.

It pours a cloudy gold color. Aroma shows the traditional banana and citrus fruit. The palate shows the nice spices and rolls into an overall long and spice driven finish. A nice surprise.

Bottle. Pours hazy light golden coloured with a creamy lasting and lacing egg white head. Aromas of banana, spicy yeast, bubblegum and orange fruit. Flavours of sweet malt, tropical fruit, spice and banana. Great hefeweizen!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A Mes rate. Bottle at the Rake.
Orange brown colour with a thin white head and fairly clean for a hefeweisse. Big banana bubblegum aroma with very little else going on. Very similar flavour. Fruity esters all round and rather sweet. Good malt, good length of flavour just a little uneventful. It has to be said the body is superb. Thick and juicy with just the right amount of carbonation to prevent it from sticking. Faint tobacco in the finish and again the carbonation gives it a gradual drying feel. Overall a pretty authentic weiss but I would prefer it to back off on the sweetness and replace it with just a tiny hint of sourness. That done, it would be superb. As it is, it’s just good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a hazy softly carbonated yellow-white colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy and floral. The crisp semi-flat mouth feel was tingly at the start with a mellow finish. The flavor contained notes of wit like malt and mild banana. An OK brew just nothing special.
