3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Royal. Wrong taphandle, says its royal weisse, says saison on the menu. Color is translucent orange gold, though, so it’s saison, and it’s got a low retention eggshell head. Lightly hoppy, yeasty, lemon wheat aroma. Malty and lemony in flavor, nice ssession strength and balanc, with bitter lemon hop finish. As flavorful as some triples (I wrote that when I thought it was a wheat and I was suprised). Bubblegummy. Fairly nice, probably the best beer I had at Royal last night.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Creamy banana, pear, clove and wheat aroma is very strong on the wheat. Opaque tan-orange coloured body with a low, white, fine bubbled head that recedes to partial cover with some lace. Banana, clove and wheat flavours dominate with some mint and clove spiciness especially in the finish. Medium light body with a creamy, smooth texture that is offset by lightly prickly, crisp carbonation. Sampled on tap at the brewpub with beerbuzzmontreal, egajdzis, Eyedrinkale, MartinT, Rastacouere and Yowie.

Tap at Halfmoon in Kennet Square. Pours orange with an off-white head. The aroma was wheat and bananas. The flavor had a little bit of fruitiness with some clove, banana, and yeast flavors. Pretty good for the style.

Murky golden pour displaying a large frothy white head. Hard-working yeast hits us with heavy banana, pear, clove, bandage and butter flavours while the biscuity, candyish and bready malts offer a round mouthfeel. Limited attenuation lets the grassy hops become more important, while white wine dryness and tartness grows in the finish. Excellent execution.

Pours a hazy light orange color with a thin white head. Aroma of banana and clove. Good flavor of banana and clove. The palate has a medium thickness and a creamy mouthfeel, the carbonation level is low. Not bad at all but I agree with MartinT, the yeast doesn’t seem tp manifest itself enough, I would have liked some bubble-gum with my bananas and clove.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloves inhabit the starfruit and unripe bananas. The yeast isn’t working hard enough it seems, this is a little too tame for it to be an attractive weizen.
Great maltiness yields lots of sweetness and forms a silky mouthfeel. Bananas are too mild for now, and yeasty spiciness is even more mellow. Efficient if not unorthodox.
Bare walls eventually disappoint the eye.

On tap at State College 8th Annual Festival. Aroma of clove, wheat, pepper and dry dustiness. Good aroma, lower on the banana-bubblegum ester notes. Hazy, unfiltered gold amber with white foamy lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation, bit fizzy. Nice hefeweizen flavor, peppery with cloves, mild banana and light citrus oil. Full of flavor. Beeman’s gum. They did a nice job with this style. Good dry bitterness and light chalky after.
