3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma is earthy with some grassy hops. Flavor is grass hops with strong malt and wheat. It really tastes like a hoppy hefeweizen, with a little less banana and clove notes. Overall, I really enjoyed this beer, but that has a bit to do with me enjoying hoppy beers more than wheat beers. So if you want a little IPA in your Hefe, try this one.

"called a wheat ipa, but is really a hoppy wheat beer, not the other way around. the hefe part definitely takes the lead here. pours a muddy yellow-brown with an intriguing aroma, though in 3 months the hops seem to have already faded. a slightly above averahe hefe with a slight hint of floral hops in the aroma and a touch of bitterness."

Thanks to Chaney for this snack!
A: pours apricot on apple cider in both color and clarity - as expected. Less than single finger loose white foam falls to tortuous sheet of the same. Cobweb lacing.
S: reminds me of a beer I made called "plastic pale ale". Has some processed petrol smells, and cloves, and the sharpness I sometimes get from wheat. Not particularly hoppy.
T: the yeast here is well played. If this were a simple Weiss bier, it would be shit, but it is not. Nice astringent edges help accentuate the yeast and wheat additions to this beer.
M: heavy body with fine and persistent carb. Dry.
O: good stab at a style outside the box.
Serving type: bottle

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
5/6/2011. From bottle. Poured cloudy light amber with a white head. Aromas of malt, bread, spice and light fruit. A lot more hops than your regular wheat ale - a big plus in my book.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 ounce bottle. Hazy amber orange color. Rocky white head last long with nice clinging Belgian lace. Aroma is a cross of toasted malt and piney hops with hints of Belgian candi sugar and Kraft macaroni and cheese. Upfront, flavor is toasted wheat malt and subtle grapefruit hops. I taste vanilla and marzipan. Lots of complex hops and lemongrass at play. Overall, a tasty hybrid that lacks real definition of style. Good none-the-less.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours copper with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of a good amount of floral and light citrusy hops, caramel malts, and wheat. Flavor the same. Smooth texture. A good blend of these two styles.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle shared with the local crew. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is herbal, floral, yeast, banana esters with some pale malts. This opens with good flavor; herbal notes, floral, slight fruity/banana,grassy with some moderate bitterness. This softens up toward the finish. Interesting shot at a hoppy hefe.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is nice with malt, bourdon barrel, hops, and fruit. The appearance is golden with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall a neat beer.
