3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Birreria Paradiso. Pours a massively opaque light orange/yellow with a thin, creamy, dense, white head. Okay lace. This is a spot on hefeweizen and I can see why the German beer judges were not happy that FFF was able to put together a near clone of Weihenstephaner. Nose is full of overripe bananas and bubblegum. Taste is light-bodied, slightly tart, full of bananas and bubblegum. Moderate mulled spices/cloves. Spritzy on the palate to almost a bit too light. Very good for the style.

Tasted on draft at Whole Foods Lincoln Park. Pours cloudy orange with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Nose of spices, wheat, and light banana. Flavors are citrus acidity, wheat, clove, and banana. The body is light with average carbonation, and the finish is medium featuring banana.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery, served in a Weizen glass. Pours cloudy golden with a small white head. The head fades quickly, leaving a small amount of lace. Aroma is strong banana with yeast and some clove. Flavour begins moderately sweet and becomes slightly bitter towards the end while losing a bit of its initial sweetness. The finish is longish and banana sweet. Medium in body with a milky texture and soft carbonation. My first thought about this beer is that it tasted like a banana milkshake. Initially, I thought this was a great thing, but I tired of it by the end. It is sweet for a hefeweizen and the carbonation is far too gentle. The appearance was also a bit disappointing, with relatively poor lacing. Not bad, but somewhat disappointing coming from a brewer of this calibre. 2010-05-15

Couple samples at Dogfloydapalooza 10. Actually one of my favorite hefe’s so far. Nice soft banana, light clove, light hop fruitiness. Very easy drinking. Can’t wait to visit the pub to get some on tap and give it a fuller rating.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at DLD.
Hazy yellowish-golden color with a large white head.
Aroma is banana, clove, wheat, and yeast. Fairly standard, but good.
Flavor is similar to the aroma, with your typical hefeweizen flavors along with some citrus and spice.
Medium-bodied with appropriate carbonation level.
Decent stuff overall. Not quite FFF’s best, but good.
