4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is musty with a very hoppy ending. Pours rich, half head, half beer. The other half is still in the bottle. Rich banana flavor is right out front with bubble gum right behind, and a hoppy ending. Crisp, pleasant carbonated mouth feel. Flattens outs towards the bottom of the glass. This beer is a great value at less than 4 ½ bucks a six pack.

This was one of the better of these type of brews. Whom ever is there commercial brewer can make a Hefe. Good Color unfiltered, a huge banana type smell. Loved the flavro and the aromas. Good Beer finally for TJ.

12oz bottle pours golden and cloudy with a tall frothy white head that stayed pretty well and laced some. Aromas of bananna, bubblegum, and cloves. Flavor is lots of bananna, clove, light bubblegum. Light well carbonated soft mouthfeel. Pretty refreshing on a 90+ day yesterday on the deck. And priced pretty well too.

Better than average hefe with a good overall character. The best part? $4.99 for a sixer. Really that’s the biggest draw.
When was the last time you found a nice hefe for sipping on a summer eve for under $1.00 a bottle?

It tastes like a sweeter Franzikaner Hefeweizen with some water thrown into it. I’ll pay the extra dollar for the 6-pack of that instead next time.

Pours a dark copper with a white, fairly quickly diminishing head. Smells sweet with a bit of clove and bubble gum in the nose. Taste is also sweet, and, again, very very bubble gummy. Interesting, refreshing and good for the price.

bottle-cloudy bright orange composed of sluggish carbonation, and a spritzy off-white head. banana, white grapes, and some estery bubblegum on the nose. flavors are metallic and very cardboardy with an undertone of banana. the body is thin and the metallic mouthfeal definately takes this one down a notch. finish is badly cardboardy (bottle was less than 2 months old). dissapointing.

Tasty, zippy lemony. Honey flavor. Great body, especially for whatever Giglio paid for it when he stocked this at his party.
