3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub
Cloudy blond color. The aroma is not inviting, a bit smelly, stagnant water, plastic, but also some banana. The mouthfeel is dry but smooth; the wheat flavor is delicate, followed by strong banana character; the bitterness is very low, which accentuates the sweetness; the spicy character is also a bit low.
Not too bad, quite easy but pleasant.

Has no aroma to speak of. Appearance is a modest foggy yellow body. Flavour is an awful weak detergent with bleach notes. Cloying mouthfeel. This is definitely not a good hefeweizen.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap.Something seriously wrong with this one, which I sampled at the brewpub. The glue aroma and flavour mixed with banana made this really taste like artificial flavour was added, though it may not be the case, could just be a screw-up with this batch. But no way was the beer I had today an 87 percentile heffe, the main characteristic was glue. My fellow patrons agreed without any prodding. Chlorophenol overload!

Draft at Banana Leaf, Vancouver. Traditional Bavarian style hef, reminded me a fair bit of Weihenstephaner’s. That said, pours a slightly cloudy golden color, with minimal aroma, medium body, finish is sweet, heavy on the esters. Not outstanding or even that original, but definitely not bad.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a cloudy mango color with a trim -off white head. Stinks of coriander and orange peel. Can’t say I’m a fan of the yeast involved. Bleh.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy gold, bright white cap. Decent banana, very good spice, rotting wood, coriander, cinnamon, wheat? This is different and it works. Aroma: wheat, coriander, spice (pumpkin?), banana that is actually good. Heavily carbonated, nice zip and lingering spices.
