2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
An unclear yellow beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet wheaty and yeasty, like rising bread, but also with light notes of banana. The flavor is sweet wheaty combined with notes of citrus, yeast, and banana - again the yeasty notes reminds me of rising bread. The end is slightly citrusy and with the wheaty notes lingering for quite some time.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy, glowing gold with a small, white head. Perfect aroma of wheat, yeast, banana, clove and bubblegum. (After I wrote that last part I glanced at the description and noticed I said the same thing.) Flavor is sweet, wheaty, lightly malty, with wonderful, rich fruit notes. Medium bodied with fine carbonation and a smooth, at times chewy mouthfeel. Finishes with more wheat, yeast and fruit, very clean. One of the best Hefes I’ve ever had, American or otherwise.

Cloudy darkish yellow. A little bit of banana and a little bit of smelly foot. Wheaty and tart, with light banana and some musty yeast. Fairly simple, unexciting version.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(12oz bottle) Big off-white head atop a murky apple juice body. Aroma is medium sweet, clove, banana, bubblegum, wheat, light orange. Taste is medium sweet, banana cream, some clove, light bubblegum, faint lemon. Creamy medium body, much smoother and with a fuller body than most Hefes (though I’m not sure that’s what I want in a Hefe).
