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.

Draught at the 12th floor bar of the Marine Memorial Hotel in San Francisco. I thought this was a fairy accurate German Hefe. Lots of banana and clove plus full mouthfeel from the wheat. Even a little spice. well done.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had this on tap at Tarantino’s at Fisherman’s Wharf. This place was a tourist trap with decent food. Nice haze orange apperance. Actually this is a mostly yellow color with an orange hue. Not much head on this at all. Fairly creamy texture. Actually, this has a very nice texture. Banana and yeast aroma and flavor. Nothing in this hefe stands out. Sweet banana aroma with a slight citrus aroma. No bitterness to speak of. This hefe is fairly easy to drink. This is a boring hefe with some banana, yeast, sugar, and citrus. Seems a bit artificial.

On tap at Blue Palms. Pours with a hazy golden body and a small white head. Aroma of orange, wheat, honey, and vanilla. Taste is orange, grainy, metallic, bitter and a bit astringent. Lively bubbles.

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.

On tap at Sacramento Brewing. This cloudy yellow beer poured with a thin white head and a flowery wheat aroma. The wheat base is tasty and there is a fair amount of hop bitterness with some banana ester.
