3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Aroma of banana with a light touch of clove, and perhaps lemon. Hazy golden color with tiny bubbles and a white head that flattened. Thinnish body with chewy/creamy carbonation. The flavor is banana, touch of lemon and some clove (but it could be yeast spiciness). The finish is dry, a little more banana, and some citrus in the background. Decent hefe.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle... Hazy golden ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Very phenolic, estery aroma and flavor; hot apple cider with clove served up in a colonial kitchen or pre-game tailgate. Smells rustic. Smells like autumn. Smells and tastes of crisp, big-time college football with Pop Warner toffee, intramural vanilla and a touch of Keith Jackson lemon. That was a little twisted... must be that time of the year again! Medium to full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. Spicy, sweet finish.

Twist off bottle from the brewery. Hits the style, but not so drinkable. Big bannana,in the taste and in the aroma. average mouthfeel in fact a bit thin mouthfeel. Carbonation significant. More wheat, complexity needed. Have had much better examples of the style. Decent retained head.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lightly cloudy golden colored with a fizzy head. The flavor is very subdued, but there is a lot of clove in the aftertaste and a touch of citrus too. This could be a little more balanced and daring. Not one of Sprecher’s best.
