2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: APR 2, 2013 Poured cloudy yellow with almost no head and what there was went away fast. That was disappointing. Checked the expiration date and it was passed. Some lacing. Nose is inviting, traditional. Yeast, banana, a little spice,some bubblegum. Itís very aromatic so Iím hopeful. Taste follows the nose all the way. Low carbonation, smooth, a little citrus hops, a little pepper. Thin and weak. No legs. Frustrating because it had all the right ingredients but it was half hearted and lifeless. A good hefe should be turbid and uplifting. I expected more.

Opaque light gold, almost milky - medium white head. Peppery cloves and some barnyard yeast on the nose, almost like a saison. Spicy, sour and sweet notes, some yeast, some light banana. Finishes refreshing, rich and a bit sour. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Dense, bright, hazy yellow body, opaque & topped with a creamy, frothy white head that lasts for days. Aroma full of wheat, baked bread, clumpy yeast, clove, a hint of banana esters, faint pear, straw, maybe even a touch of mint. Flavor follows through exactly with amplified notes of clove, biscuits, banana bread, bubble gum, mint, grass, mild pear skin. Nice finish of clove, bread, a soft blanket of wheat, & a chunky yeast finish. Good body, just on the edge of chewy but still remaining very drinkable. Iíve always enjoyed this beer, really good take on a German hefe.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy golden yellow with a white head. Aroma of classic german sweet esters which brings you subtle banana notes, sweet orange, weak bubblegum, some floral notes and weak hoppy notes. The taste is also rather sweet and refreshing with a more hoppy profile along with those sweet esters, some citrus, banana and orange. Very refreshing and a nice take on the style!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reading some reviews you might think this tastes like a German hefe. It doesnít. At least this bottle didnít. The haziest beer Iíve seen due to suspended particulate matter. The blonde color is spot on. The aromas and flavors barely hint at the clove and banana elements characteristic of actual hefe. Not a bad beer but very disappointing when measured against what I was expecting. This is no Ayinger Ur-Weisse. I would not buy this again.

Hefeweizen one of my least favorite styles yet I can appreciate the quality brew that this is. Bit of weizenbock characteristics in this but in a more approachable form. Well done.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle.
Aroma is grainy and sweet. Wonderful Hefeweizen taste with hints of banana , clove, and vanilla. Just a slight hint of sourness on the backend. Bitterness was perfect, well balanced just like a traditional Hefeweizen should be.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This 12oz bottle was bottled on 30th December 2014 and poured into a Duvel tulip glass. The beer poured a very hazy straw gold colour with two finger white head that dissipated quickly leaving behind thin but nice lacing. There were earthy wheaty aromas with orange, banana and cloves poking through. Taste was mainly of ripe banana and bready wheaty malts with hints of citrus and a touch of hoppiness at the end. It was light bodied with medium carbonation and a dry finish. Overall this isnít the best hefe that Iíve tried, but its certainly up there and a good example of one. Its very easy to drink and I would definitely consider this during the hot summers.

From bottle in weizen. Cloudy and golden with beautiful head. Hints of clove and spice on the nose and palate. Quite a smooth hefe...one of the best Iíve had.
