3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2013 12oz Bottle. The Pour was a hazy amber yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white foamy head that lasted throughout and produced fair streaky lacing.
The aroma was a light grain malt and a mild doughy yeast with notes of banana, citrus (lemon), a bit of coriander and a hint of vanilla.
The taste was slightly bitter and rather yeasty with a hint of citrus pretty much throughout, with the finish having a slight spiciness towards the end. The flavor was short lived with a mild citrusy yeast taste fading quickly from the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a thin creamy texture and a medium carbonation.
Overall this was a really good Hefeweizen, with a nice creamy yeasty taste and a good drinkability. This is a brew that I will definitely drink again, especially on one of those extremely hot summer days...

Pours golden yellow with a whole lotta yeast. Aroma is fresh banana bread with considerable spice. Flavor is lighter than expected with the strong aromas, has kind of a sugar substitute sweetness that tastes kinda weird.

Very cloudy yellow, head and lacing wash away quickly.
Slightly medicinal up front, then banana bread, bubble gum, faint cloves, bitterness comes through on the finish.
Has the palate, aroma and sour-ness of a classic Kellerweis.

Pours a golden yellow color with no foam head, just a little white lacing. Aroma is cloves and banana. Flavor is slightly sweet wheat, clove, and banana. This is okay, but probably not something I would buy again.
