Tried on tap from Starr Hill at GoFest. Pours a slightly hazy golden color. Head was full but dissipated quickly. It’s actually quite a nice hefeweizen from a local brewery. It’s missing some of the wheat flavor that would be expected from an excellent brew, but the traditional clove aroma and flavor is there as is the tartness on the finish.

Clear golden pour with a small, creamy white head. Aroma is yeasty with a lot of banana. Banana flavors dominate, light clove, yeast and light fruit. Finish is a bit sour and soapy. Good flavor, finishes flat.

Interesting brew. Definitely some hefeweizen characteristics, but I didn’t pick up on much of the banana and clove. The appearance was nice but nothing special. Same for the taste. Definitely pour it in a glass. Tried a few sips from the bottle, but the carbonation was overpowering. Not bad, but this one is not for me.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A none too offensive German style hefe. Pale malt, corn, wheat, pine, citrus and mild spices. Balanced with a little peppery zest bite on the end. Perhaps that’s the clove but I think it is more peppercorns. Light body. The spices come through as you drink it. I am enjoying this a lot.

The beer is cloudy and bright golden with a small white and ample effervescence. The aroma offers banana, sugary candies, fruit esters. Bubble gum and banana flavor. A bit too sweet for my liking. Prickly carbonation with a slight bite in the finish. Overall, a noticeable step behind the leading German examples of the style.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated on 3-27-2011 (Bottle purchased at Total Wine & More-Ft. Myers, FL) This bottled beer pours a very, very small fizzy white head with a lengthy retention, opaque body, and one ring of lacing. The aromas are wheat, yeast, lemony, bananas, spicy, and clove. The taste is sweet, clove, bananas, wheat, citrus, lemon, and clean tasting. The mouthfeel is mildly tingly carbonation, and this beer is medium bodied. This is a session beer and an adequate beer on a hot, humid day.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy honey olden with a nice ivory head. Aroma is mainly fruity - banana, orange and lemon - with a wheaty underpinning. Wheaty flavor has citrus, banana and subtle yeasty notes, as well as an odd metallic tang. Texture is fairly fizzy and firm, but that metal edge haunts the finish. Still, feel he love!
