3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ Dean to Mouth tasting, courtesy of kermis. Pours a hazy amber beer without any carbonation going on in the glass. Aroma is fairly flat, faint fruity yeasty esters going on, slight touch of banana. Really missing the typical hefeweizen aroma here. Flavor is again very flat, boring and really missing the spot here. Slight fruitness going on, furthermore rather boring. Easy drinkable though, but no match to any other hefeweizen in my book.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled from bottle @ The Hague Tasting. Murky yellowish color, small white head. Smell and taste wheat, banana, sweetish. Not far off a German hefe weisse. Unfortunately I don’t like hefe weisse beers. Anyway, not a bad brew.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at the "Lets celebrate the fact that Dean is already the Mayor of M&S Den Haag even though it’s only been open for 24 hours tasting!". Poured a hazy light amber with no life at all. The aroma is citrus fruit. The flavour is acid veggie with a light pear banana watery palate. Medium bodied with flat carbonation. Pretty awful. The worst I ever had from Three Floyds.

Hazy orange with a thin fully disappearing white head. Smells of orange, grass, cherries and a bit of honey. Medium oily body. Tastes of pale malt, rotten fruit and a sour stale rot finish. Not very nice and lots of old oranges.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 ounce bottle into weizen glass; no bottle dating, but was released fairly recently. Pours very hazy golden orange color with a 1 finger fairly dense white head with decent retention, that reduces to a spotty lace cap that lingers. Minimal lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big orange peel, pear, apple, banana, apricot, wheat, bread, bubblegum, clove, pepper, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, malt, hop notes; with good strength. Taste of orange peel, apricot, banana, pear, apple, wheat, bread, clove, bubblegum, light pepper, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of orange peel, apricot, banana, pear, apple, wheat, bread, clove, bubblegum, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance, complexity, and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, malt, and moderate hop flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy and very smooth mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice hefeweizen. All around good balance, robustness, and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, malt, and moderate hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
