3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Head is initially large, frothy, white, fully lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread/grain, popcorn), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with light notes of banana, clove, and butter. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. It seems like there’s some diacetyl lurking in this sample, but I could be wrong. This seems really promising, but as-is it’s a bit disappointing.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz can (thanks to whoever sent this..i think Doclock!). Pours a hazy amber with a huge chunky head. Nose is bananna and spice. Taste start sweet then turns spicy ala coriander, then some fruitiness, banannas and strawberries, and some mild eathy/herbal hops in the finish. Light body, high carbonation. This is one of my least favorite styles but this one is actually pretty good.

Cloudy/Muddy Orange Color with Thin White Skin. Banana, Clove and Malt Aroma. Medium Mouthfeel. Lots of Banana, Yeast and Balanced Spice Notes...Clean, Crisp and Flavorful. Very Nice Summer Brew. Nice to See More ’Quality’ Micro Brews in Cans.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz can. Murky yellow-gold with a huge rocky white head. Heavy yeast aromatics, clove, banana, and tinges of bubblegum. Grainy wheat with minor vegetal hop tones up front. Spicy phenols then dominate, some fruity esters compliment. Tangy wheat tinge in the finish, with long residual clove and bubblegum. Mouthfeel is a medium light, rather smooth.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the willblake gift pack, of which I am really not worthy! Nice banana and clove, not bubblegummy. Definitely a little more spicy, hoppy (grassy, dry) than other hefes. Overall dry and very drinkable. Even when warm, doesn’t fall apart into still, heavy acridness. Very good interpretation!

Nice crisp wheat aroma, pours a cloudy light tan with a small, fluffy, white head. Nice sweet wheat flavor, crisp carbonation cleanses the palate after each sip. Very drinkable wheat ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can - what else? Hazy medium yellow pour under a tall white head which settles quickly but not completely. Fruity and mildly spicy aroma with banana predominating. Spot on German Hefe flavor profile with an abundance of banana and cloves. Silky mouthfeel with active carbonation and a sweet fairly crisp finish. A good representation of the style and another example of how a can can house a good brew.
