3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The Sampler, Brooklyn bottle: Pours cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma is banana and spice. I wouldn’t have called this a hefe as much as I would call it an American wheat. Nice and sweet. Nice fruity flavors. Overall, I think that this was somewhat under-rated.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap. Deep golden with small head. Why can’t American brewers make a decent hefe? Has about half the flavor of a German hefe. Light banana, but weak sauce.

quite an appropriately flavored and well bodied brew of the species! not overdone or slick the beer is drinkable and alcohol seemed right. not amped up, but again seemingly genuine in ever way.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from giant eagle. Nose is banana and clove with some wheat. Decent yeast fullness and banana, clove and spice in there but not too strong. Not great but decent.

12oz bottle into Le Listermann - nose is wet wheat/hay with almost banana/clove aromas. Label also says wheat beer but German Hefeweizen is more apropos. Fairly flat but very refreshing. Underrated for sure. Somewhat chewy (as the talking dog says in the Simpsons when it is pointed out that dogs can’t talk). I honestly thought I was going to rate a boring wheat ale but turned out for the best.

no no no. this is not a german hefe, not by any stretch of the imagination. its another american wheat ale, pure and simple. you put a Paulaner or a Franz up against this and try and tell me this is a hefe. no way.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Moe’s Restaurant in Cuyahoga Falls, OH. American pint shaker. Cloudy orange-amber pour with thick head. Aroma of light fruits and bread/biscuit. Fairly yeasty smelling. Taste was not terribly balanced. Fruity with some spices on the back end. Not very complex. Below average wheat beer. Light body, medium carb.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Save On. Nice cloudy caramel color with vnice lasting head and lace. Clove and bananas in aroma. Taste is first nothing/water, then tangy fruity unripe peach, then something like fake maple syrup and cinnamon. Something went wrong in the finish. It’s unpleasant. Nice light palate. Not too good.
