2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a pinkish orange...cloudy. Head quickly dissipated. No lacing. Aroma is very sweet...vaguely of circus peanut candy... smells artificial. Taste is basically what a hefeweizen should taste like but too sweet...and artificial. Clean finish. Passable, but there are many better hefeweizens out there.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from mixed "Summer Tour" 12-pack dated best by 17 Dec. 2011 (from notes). Served in a pint glass. Newer label than shown on BA.
Pours a hazy golden straw color with a small and short-lived off-white head. Lots of visible carbonation. Additional sediment in the bottom of the bottle added mid-tasting.
S - rather typical weisbier aroma with yeast, citrus, ripe banana, a clove-like spiciness and, perhaps, a trace of hops. Not particularly inviting, but I find that true of many beers of this style.
T - moderate strength for style. Yeast, grain, ripe banana and lemony citrus. Sour and sweet components with a clear tart balance. Good but quite citrusy aftertaste.
M - medium-light body; nice carbonation level; a tad crisp; semi-dry finish.
O - In sum, an above average weisbier, particularly in regards to mouthfeel. Good thirst quencher.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Golden color, no head really, very small palate and smell. Almost fruity and goes down easily, good beer to drink a few of, not a lot.

On tap at lost dog it is a clear yellow color with a slight head. The aroma is malty with some citrus. The taste is banana and lemon and Cloves and the finish is definitely a candy banana

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bottle. Very little head, a small but noticeable amount of lacing, cloudy orange. Hay and banana aroma, wheaty with some citrus. Smooth finish. Not a fan of what beers anymore, but this was refreshing after a run.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A little underwhelming. Too much on the sour side without having much of the banana or pronounced yeast. Pours orange without much head or lacing. Bottle.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transfer from BA review on 7-7-12 -
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a hazy yellow golden color with a medium white head. The head faded very fast to give only a light amount of lacing.
Smell – The aromas are heaviest of wheat and yeast. There are notes of pepper and banana as well as a very light citrus flavor.
Taste – The taste starts out wheaty and a little on the sweeter side; the sweetness is of a citrus orange nature. The sweetness fades slightly over time as flavors of yeast start to work their way into the taste. A light peppery and banana flavor accompany the yeast and take the flavor to the end.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was on the average thickness with a carbonation level on the higher side of things. Both fitting,but rather average for the style.
Overall – Not a bad brew and quite easy to drink. Well worth a try.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
DATE REVIEWED: July 18, 2014... GLASSWARE: Weihenstaphaner weizen... OCCASION: beautiful camp day to a close...APPEARANCE: cloudy golden yellow body with generally large bubbles at the bottom of the glass; quickly flattening head--zero left behind, creating a bald brew... AROMA: banana and bubblegum--a yeast strain that is a bit clean for a hefe... some clove late... PALATE: crisp, reasonably medium-bodied; swift aftertaste; not really unfiltered... TASTE: yeasty banana, and yet not too flavorful; slightly acidic, but rather smooth overall, missing the rougher, more natural flavor profile of a hefe... OVERALL: refreshing on the deck at Friday 5 pm, yes--flavorful enough to distinguish itself or hold interest, no...enough to be a hefe, definitely not; the sampler hit on two of four (the IPA and pils) and struggles elsewhere...

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
