3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Picked up single 22-oz bomber at Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, Minnesota. Pours a semi-clear golden pale colored brew with a thick off-white head that has some good retention. Aroma of banana esters, golden grain malt, a hint of tropical pineapple and a touch of clove. Taste is medium bodied with flavors of both banana, clove esters, a hint of honey, a touch of pineapple and bread. Finish is semi-sweet with a banana ester and floral hop aftertaste. A solid American hefeweizen throughout.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewery. Slightly hazy and golden. Perfect aroma -- banana, one of the oddest resulting beer aromas ever, I need to learn the science of that. This drinks with a sweet edge, same banana, and even a little pineapple. Creamy feel. For style, quite good and quite authentic to the Bavarians. (#5654, 8/28/2014)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Grayed out golden pour, hazy and laced. Lemon oil, cleaning product, clove and banana nose with a healthful dose of pleasing mineral water content. Undetailed and clean.
Soda cracker, lemon zest, spearmint flavor, cooling and soft. Low on stylistic checkpoints, higher on those herbs and general plucky tartness than the cushy banana and bread sweetness. Lightly pungent and evocative tarragon notes.
Zippy, mineral water clean texture; simple white bread flavor mid palate leading to a dry, soft finish. This example is an archetype of this brewery’s style, a key aspect of which is its attention to texture, balance and cleanness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint pour at Muddy Waters in Minneapolis while watching Germany demolish Brazil in the World Cup. Pours a hazy, cloudy, opaque, light orange-ish tan with a small amount of beige head. Apricot nectar-like appearance. Looks good. Scents of tart green apple, honey, minerals, and watermelon. Very strong aroma. Nice, creamy hefeweizen taste features a cinnamon element. Tart flavor. Frothy and lively in the palate. Light body. Very good palate, especially for a hefeweizen. Overall, Steel Toe Sommer Vice is an above average hefeweizen. The flavors aren’t strong but they are pleasant, and the appearance, aroma, and palate stand out.
