3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Global Brew Edw. golden with only a tiny ring. Soft fruit, cloves, and banana are smelled. It smells like a classic German hefe. Flavorvis a little like fruity candy. Earth is tasted. Those hefe flavors that I like are here but are not quite big enough. The sugary candy leads. Still, I do like it. A nice summer quencher on a hot day. A bit of butter in the finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft on tap at the brewery (St. Louis, MO). RBSG 2014 Friday Bus Tour. Pours a pale straw hue with lively carbonation. Frothy bright white head dies to a small ring, laces ok. Aromas are a bit fruity, flaked wheat meets some apple, gentle banana and faint clove. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, a bit of fleshy apple and banana. Touches of fruit, flaked wheat, straw. Middle is a bit bready, gentle tartness. Some touches of yeast, flaked wheat. Clean fermentation shows some decent yeast character, nice fruity compliment is cool, banana driven. Finish is a bit sweet, lingering fruit and gentle yeastiness. Nice, refreshing, doesn’t overdo the sweetness.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma is hard to detect with some wheat malt and again not much else. Flavor is more of the wheat malt then anything. Some clove I guess if you use your imagination. No real banana esters like you would like. Not one of their best efforts.
