3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy/hazy amber color with a medium amount of white head that disappears quickly (little lacing). The aroma is mostly spicy with major notes of coriander and clove and a small amount of banana. The taste is more of the same, but with not much banana or citrus present. The beer is refreshing but there is really nothing unique or distinctive in its flavor that differentiates it from other wheat beers. This is very drinkable but also pretty standard.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy medium yellow body with a very large, creamy, white head that stays thick and laces the glass well. Dry, very spicy, yeasty, fruity and rather strong aroma with lots of delicious banana. Strong flavour that is initially dominated by coriander and a generic spicy feel mixed with honey, then yeasty banana, citrus and other fruits. Not much sweetness or bitterness, but quite dry and with some acidity. Unusually citric, refreshing and crisp mouthfeel, it’s light on the palate and lively carbonated. The perfect summer wheat beer!

Bottle. Sour, awful beer. Searched hard to find something appealing, but to no avail. A style not for me.

Notes from Family Hefe Tasting. Pours a clear pale yellow with a white head. Aroma has spices and pickles. Taste was led by pickles or vinegar or some other tangy spice. Some vegetalness as well. 11.2 This was the highest finishing American Hefe in the tasting; but only finished midpack overall.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance is cloudy deep yellow/light golden with a frothy thick white foam cap. Aroma is typical spicy clove, banana, and bubblegum. Taste is bready malt with spicy clove that stands out, but also has a slight metallic taste. Banana character is there, but stands down to the clove. Mouthfeel is medium for the style with moderate carbonation. Not as creamy as most examples. Finishes extremely dry on the tongue with lingering clove spice. Overall good, but lacks the creamy body of it’s German counterparts and seems to have a slight metallic taste
