Draft sample. Poured hazy yellow color with an average fizzy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate banana, clove and wheat aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a solid sweet finish of moderate duration. Good refreshing brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
~ 16 ounce draft at the Triple 7 Brewpub at the Main Street Station, Las Vegas, Nevada. The pour is a very hazy yellow golden with a small white head. The aroma is soft wheat grain, perhaps a faint clove yeast. The taste is wheat, grain, light hay, and subtle clove and banana yeast. The palate is unfiltered, light bodied, clean finish. Easy drinking, but a bit plain. The yeast character was really dialed down on this.

West USA trip 2010. On tap @ Main Street Station. The aroma has fruitiness, banana’s. Hazy, yellow coloured beer with a white head. The taste is a bit sweet and has bubblegum and banana. Still sort of refreshing.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at the brewpub. Cloudy golden, small head. Orangey juicy aroma. Sweet and fruity. No banana character, instead juicy ctric fruitiness dominates. Feeling somewhat tatr. Somehow most of the flavour can be derived down to the lemon wedge it was served with.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
The usual cloves and bananas garnish this Weizen’s round body, sculpting a fine summer brew.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the cloudy milky yellow.
-This was served with a lemon wedge, already inserted in the glass... How sad when there’s plenty of flavour already.
-This might have been on the sweet side of what I prefer in the style.
-Wheat offers lots of flavours throughout.
On tap at the brewpub.
