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 a cloudy yellow on tap with big fluffy white head that leaves good lace. Aroma of banana and spicy clove esters you expect from a German wheat. Taste follows, clean and well done for the style.

Tried at Craft Beer Market YEG. Sierra Nevada tap takeover Nov 18. Nice aroma of spices and wheat. Flavour follows up. Nice well balanced flavour profile. Candied bananas, cloves, allspice, zest, grassiness, etc.

Bottled 06/15. So quite old. Pours hazy yellow, small white head. Aroma is banana, clove, esters, mild sour note? Flavor is banana, clove, bubblegum, estery, maybe phenolic? I wanna say a little bit of pear. Solid for a heff.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Cloudy golden body, head is lower than average for the style, does not stay for long. Aroma has banana and some crisp hops. Smooth wheaty taste with banana. Pretty clean and classic taste. However, it’s pretty expensive here (3,5 EUR) while all the classic German ones are way more affordable. There are even some discounter German Hefeweizens that cost less than 70 cents per 500 ml and taste surprisingly decent, so in terms of value it just doesn’t compete with anything in these areas.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Botella. Color amarillo pálido y turbio. Bien de espuma pero se va rápido. Aroma claramente a plátano y un tanto especiado. En boca destaca el plátano pero también el clavo y los cítricos. Diria que encuentro hasta un toque picante. También tiene cierto recuerdo a las IPA. Bastante buena.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
- N: yeast bun; faint ripe banana skin; faint seville orange.
- B: Butter-y, like a Leibnitz biscuit.
- F: Short finish – ginger-y finish (like Badger Beer’s ‘Blandford Flyer’)
Quite orange-y, ginger-y and butter-y for a Hefe – SN putting their hoppy touches on the style. Bit thin later.

Aroma is sweet grain, banana, straw, and clove. Taste is sweet and quite light. Finishes smoothly but not very complex, kind of disappointing. Appearance is a hazy gold with a fluffy pillow head that retains quite well.

Bottle. Cloudy dark yellow with small foamy white head, doughy aroma with a hint of honey, medium carbonation, citrus flavored faintly bitter taste, medium finish with very little citrus peel aftertaste. Nice but not spectacular.

Classic hefeweizen, thus boring flat like any other. Hazy yellow with no head, citric aroma, taste of oranges, bananas and sour malts. Good copycat of a Bavarian beer, without adding anything to the original.
