3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle ( 341ml ). Courtesy of blankboy. Murky papaya colour, with a small quick-diminishing fizzy off-white head. Aroma of banana, roses and grass - quite yeasty and bready - sweet for sure. The taste is somewhat muted - a little more grass and less fruit - fairly thick-bodied, nice lively mouthfeel, a bit dry in the finish - nice and easy to drink - thanks, Paul!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were and left behind a slightly hazy softly carbonated yellow colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was malty and banana. The semi-thick mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The balanced flavor contained notes of malt banana and wheat. An OK brew just nothing special.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. 5%. Cloudy, orange/honey coloured pour with a frothy white foam, medium retention. Aroma is yeast and bananas. Taste is more bananas (maybe too much), yeast, orange, coriander, and almost a sweet gingery taste lingering in the finish. Creamy, cool and very sweet, but leaves a very dry mouth. This is remedied by opening another.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Opaque honey-orange with white head in weizen. Sweet, yeasty, banana and clove in the nose transitions into mild taste of the same with some citrus and a spicy finish. Sweet and creamy smooth mouthfeel. Very drinkable and refreshing.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clouded orange appearance. Banana on the nose as well as a tiny bit of chemical harshness. Taste is decent and is what is expected.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Colour was a slightly peculiar orange, and VERY hazy. The head was a creamy white, and stayed for a helluva a long time. I’m more than half way through this, and still it hangs on. Outstanding! Aroma is somewhat shy, with a touch of sweetness peeking through. Taste is quite pleasant, a bit bittersweet and most pleasant. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, and the aftertaste packs a titch of sweetness. A nice beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2009 Bottle. Smells like bread. Tastes like bread. Cloudy and golden. Medium body. There was a little citrus, a little banana is the flavour. Not bad, and certainly a good summer beer. Thanks to Mark for the beer!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very nice looking hefe a cloudy brownish orange body with a large pillowy white head that had great retention and lacing, very nice looking beer. Just your average smelling hefe, yeast and wheat make up most of the aroma with some spice there could have been more spice for my liking, there was a sourness coming through in the aroma that I didn’t enjoy to bad for that or I would have really enjoyed the smell of this brew. The taste was a let down after this beer started off so good, sour banana, and wheat, overall the beer seemed very watered down and bland. The mouth feel is also watery and to heavily carbonated, and it leaves a very bready aftertaste in your mouth. The brew is drinkable but a bellow average hefe, this beer look great but nothing special in its taste.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Damn, this stuff is thick! You cannot see 1cm into the glass - it’s solid! Thick dark yellow going orange in colour with a super fat off white head and some average lacing. The aroma of the yeast is quite light and the banana odor is not overly strong. More like candied dried bananas. Actually, more like Banana Brown Cow Milk syrup. That’s not entirely a great thing. Almost forgot the underlying aroma of dirt. Taste is comprised of yeast and plently bananas with a sour touch. It’s quite refreshing out in the sun, but I’m not really a fan of the North American Hefe’s style. Mouthfeel is dry, dull, slightly alcoholic and finishes with a slight chalky aftertaste that doesn’t last.
