It had a cloudy orange color with a spare head. Similar to the Dukel, I do not care for the taste of this beer or style in general.

Very nice for a hefeweizen. This style is one I didn’t care for originally, but it has grown on me and I’ve come to respect and like this style! Lemon, orange, banana, this one has a nice fruity body. Very solid for the style!

nicely done for a hefeweizen but nothing that set it apart to make to great. same citrus notes and wheat found in others. enjoyable but not memorable.

Decent hefe with some rich wheat taste. A slice of lemon and this is certainly a slice of summer. Missing the banana and clove found in better versions of the style. Of course missing the Gumballhead hops but that’s another story...

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light gold with a head that lasted through the end of the sampler platter. Good nose, banana and loads of clove. Punchy sweetness in the flavor, lots of clove, very crisp. Full and sticky. Excellent.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright color... darkish orange-yellow. Cloudy body, white fizzy head. Fizzy bite on the tongue to.. distracting from the flavor. Fresh lemon banana aroma sticks out more than the usual sampler does. Full bodied wheaty orange, but with a slight stale taste. Pretty good hefe.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light orange, cloudy appearance, clove and banana aroma and flavor. Good, starchy white head, decent lacing. Decent creamy mouthfeel. Good thirst quencher in the summer. Standard brewpub Hefe, perhaps a notch or two above average.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at the brewpub. Bright, nearly opaque foggy amber; creamy head and slight banana nose; sourish banana-clove flavors; bit thin, seems well-made but without a lot of character to me.
