2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap @ Silver Peak. Slightly hazed orange pour with a white head. Banana and an overwhelming spice nose. A sour lime and coriander mix. No thanks. Some clove in there as well. The flavor is heavy on white pepper, coriander, and clove. Astringent lemon peel finish. A lot of banana and bread sweetness as well. Just all over the place. Comes with a lemon, so negative cred to begin with.

"like anyone’s hefe, it can be refreshing on the right day, but it’s another standard, uninspired entry into the category. a little watery, decent malty sweetness and a slightly spicy banana-clove finish."

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice hazy golden, typical of a hefe but still attractive. Strong wheaty and lemony aroma has a hint of yeast. Refreshing wheaty flavor has a lively, tingly texture. Body is average but the tingle persists. Perfect for a sweltering summer day.

[Tap] Pours a very light yellow color with a nice cap of head and a slight haze to it. Wheat grains, lemon and clove in the nose. Spicy flavor features clove and some nutmeg with lesser amounts of banana and bubblegum. Sweet and yeasty finish. Decent body for an American example of the style. Lively carbonation. This was a pretty good beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Very suprised at the quality of this hefe. It had all the qualities I enjoy and was quite quaffable. The aroma is bananas and cloves with just a light touch of citrus. Hazy yellow body with a merengue white fluffy head. Flavors of wheat, banana, some lemon with nice cracker-like note. When I go back in the summer, I’ll be looking for this for sure. Wish the casino’s would carry this instead of the regular crap they do.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at brewpub. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Aroma of clove and banana esters. A little thin in body for my tastes. This lacks the nuances of a good hefe and is a bit heavy on clove phenols, although it gets much better on the finish. Not terrible, but I am just picky with my hefes.
