3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle) A densely clouded, amber body with a big off-white/orange head. Nice hefeweizen aroma--sweet, banana, spice--and some underlying pine hops (but mostly hefeweizen). Medium body. Hefeweizen upfront with bubblegum, spice, ripe fruit, but quickly turns to a bitter IPA with lots of grapefruit, and pine. It’s interesting how both styles are contained so wholly and distinctly in one beer, but I almost wish they overlapped with each other more (which only really happens in the aftertaste). As it is, it seems a little schizophrenic. Still, both halves are very good in and of themselves. Makes it hard to score for me.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
a strange mixture of wheat and IPA. the aroma is bizarre with grapefruit like aroma. the taste is more hoppy than the German banana nose that is expected. still as a mixture it is not bad, but it lacks something

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reviewed June 2011 - Up front there are some banana and cloves. There’s the German wheat beer coming through. Then come the hops. Citrus and grapefruit. Instead of working together nicely I felt like the ingredients clashed a bit. Not a horrible beer at all. Just not something I would drink again.
