2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours pale gold with a fluffy head that disappears quickly. Aroma is lemon, crisp wheat, green apples. Palate is wispy-light, delicately carbonated. Flavor is forgettable as well. The only thing interesting here is a hint of tartness on the finish reminiscent of a Berliner Weiss. This is clearly lacking the body and weizen yeast flavors of true German Hefes.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Extreme Pizza, Sacramento. A fruity/banana-ey hefeweizen that is pretty usual for the style, but ultimately boring. Nothing really stood out too much about this. The palate was probably the highlight, having a spritzy mouthfeel and finish. Decent overall, just won’t go out of my way to be getting this again. Final: Good minus.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Banana and wheat malt aroma with esters in the background.
Almost a lemon color, hazy, with a white sticky head, and some action.
Banana and a bready wheat grain malt taste with a hint of butter in the background.
Light bodied, slight butter and watery/resin feel, with lively soft carbonation that seems to be krausened.
Very drinkable this sixer will be gone shortly.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly hazed straw color. Virtually no head and no lacing. Very odd, as this beer shows no other characteristics of being an old or bad bottle. Aroma is very yeasty and spicy, with a banana bready sweetness. Flavor is clovey with some banana pith, vanilla, and a touch of peppery hop bitterness in the finish. Very clean, crisp, and refreshing. Dry and drinkable.

On tap at Schooner’s, this was a real surprise. Pours hazy golden with an off white head. Nose was a touch of citrus and yeast. The flavor is smooth and lightly sweet bready malt and some honey. Bready sweet finish, but not too sweet. Smooth on the palate.
