4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into a tulip glass. Light yellow color in the pour. Once settled in the glass it is opaque golden colored with a finger of white head that quickly broke down to a thin covering.
Smells great. Lots of banana, some nectarine and orange.
Nice taste. Starts like a normal Hefe with some banana. Then an undercurrent of bitter takes over with a sparkling water ending.
Crisp with moderate carbonation.
Hefe is not my favorite style. I liked this one because it was not overly fruity. It had just a touch of banana at the beginning and then mixed it up with a more interesting flavor sequence than a normal hefe.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rating #2170 - 2015.11.13 - Sample at Grape Escape. Yellow pour that is fairly cloudy. Aroma is of grains, citrus, bananas, coriander, ginger?. Taste is fairly wheaty, but complex, and mild sweetness. Overall, this beer is drinkable, enjoyable, and a solid Hefeweizen, but i wouldn’t tart it up as being in the RB Top 50.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.355l bottle. Hazy golden body, thin white head. Aroma of banana, bread, peach and some medicinal hops. Taste of bread, banana, peach and lemon zest. To be honest I was a bit sceptical that this beer is one of the best weizens in the world. I’m still not sure it is, and I definitely consider some of the Bavarians better, but this is definitely nice.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured out cloudy gold. 8ºSRM.
Nose has nice creamed corn aroma. Beery with some nice raw dough aroma. A bit of formic acid bite on the nose.
Mouthfeel is beery and carbonated. Palate has sweet pale malt with solid wheat malt body that comes across as broadly sour with a slight minerality which then fades to malt sweet, sweet dough, fresh biscuits. There is cement dust and sawdust. Hops are clean bitter, but not heavy.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours hazy with straw colour and a small wheat nose. Taste is also very typical wheat and very light citric notes. Palate is typical weiss Bier - rather short but agreeable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange golden body, huh head. Aroma; grassy hops, meadow spices, sweet malts, maybe coriander. Taste; sweet malts, grass, banana note, meadow spices, fruit notes - leading to a fruity sweet finish. Nice on palate. Overall a tasty hefe, young banana, fresh, likeable. But germans will complain about low head of course. [35,5cl.btl 4.8%abv]

Very good, solid effort recreating a Bavarian Hefeweizen. Aroma is traditional for this style. Flavor and body are very close, but just a tad lacking - in complexity and depth. Still, really good stuff.

0,33 bottle at home - Aroma has banana, clove and slight american hops. On the flavor you get much of the same. It’s an okay attempt at a hefeweizen. It would probably be better if the bottle was fresh.
