2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a hazy golden-orange with gentle bubbles and a decent head - it falls back to leave a thin layer of lace. The nose has pineapple sorbet. The taste has a tangy yeast but there is a low malt note in the background which detracts somewhat from the big sweet fruity notes. The palate has a medium structure, a tangy but thin texture through the middle and it cleans pretty well, even if that’s just because the middle was pretty light anyway. Overall, it’s a weak example of a weizen.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Sour vegetable clove aroma. Cloudy yellowish brown colour, not much head. Spicy banana clove flavour. Flat & watery texture, aromatic aftertaste. Unusual but not great Hefeweizen.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted at the Breast Fest in Fort Mason, SF. This pours a cloudy yellow with a nice white head. I was expecting more of an American wheat ale, since I hadn’t heard anything about this beer, but I was pleasantly surprised at how authentically German this is. The aroma is very wheaty with fresh baked bread and some banana esters while the flavor explodes with clove, bubblegum, banana, and wheat. It’s nice to know we can get a authentic, fresh German hefeweizen here on the West Coast! I would have scored it higher if the aroma had been more potent.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into a pint glass. Golden straw color with a cloudy appearance and a thin white head. Aroma is citrus, wheat, and some spices (coriander?). Flavor follows aroma almost exactly. Overall a decent wheat beer.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into my 12oz. Sudwerk glass. Color is golden, and quite cloudy. Head is thin and fades very quickly. Aroma is complex, full of citrus, coriander, clove, and slight banana hints. Flavor is as complex as the aroma, starting sour and citrusy, and developing into a sweeter finish with hints of coriander or clove. Feel compliments flavor nicely with a fizzy, medium light body. I garnished with fresh home grown lemon, making this a great hefe!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A really great yeast flavor...Nice and clean, not fighting with the malt. Really dry and fully fermented. Some dried fruit flavors come out, but the standard banana-clove is on top nicely. Very few off flavors. A very well made hefe.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle served in a weizen glass. Light, translucent golden pour. Bright white foamy head starts thick and thins down to a nice white top in the glass. Tart nose, a little skunky. Very nice wheat taste. Strong cereal malt up front that fades down to a malty sweetness. Bittering hops are subtle. Low yeastiness.
