3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. brown, longneck bottle. No freshness date seen, but it’s a 2006 batch. Poured out a hazy yellow color, with a thin, white, soapy head. Minimal lacing effect in the glass. Aromas are of German yeast funk right off the bat. Strong yeast aromas, followed by slight citrus notes, & typical Pils malt smell. Flavors are of cloves, black pepper bites the tongue, some citrus notes also. Spicy hops bite at the end. Medium mouthfeel, rich body though. Finishes peppery & lively.

A little richer than many hefeweizens and the palate reflects this by seeming a bit thicker. The flavors were pretty tightly wound which made it pleasant to drink, but not terribly memorable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to DocLock! Pure cloudy light straw color with a modest, yet stable off white head. Citric aromas, with only a touch of cloves and ripe bananas. Some light sweet wheat comes out as it warms and picks the scent up a notch. The palate is nearly perfect. A near oddity with a a touch too much silk and not enough effervescence. Light milk caramel with bananas and cream. Nearly to heavy and filling, but a very balanced and flavorful weizen. Light pepper and spice in the finish. This is a fall, "heavier" light weiss type of brew.

Hazy, cloudy dark yellow, with a big fluffy head. Citrusy, maybe even a bit woodsy aroma, with a sweetish wheat edge. Lemony, piney flavor over a nice wheat base. Crisp, hoppy finish. Tasty, refreshing wheat brew here.

Bottled(355ml). -hazy lemon coloured, medium quick disappearing white head. Aroma is wheaty, malty and very fruity (especially clove, banana and lemon). Light acidic finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy straw color with a great big foamy white head. Aromas are fairly faint... I can detect some cloves, yeast, bread dough and a little blast of pepper. Flavor is pretty subtle, but really nice. All of the cast from the aroma comes back and blends together nicely with the peppery spicing making things interesting. Light and refreshing for summer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A tall dense head of white forms above this cloudy medium yellow brew.
Banana and spice come easily to the nose.
Sweet and spicy flavor with a good firm body. Very well done and worth seeking out if you like this style.

Bottle: Poured a golden hazy and deadly still. The creamy head settled into a film on the side of the glass. The yeasty aroma and banana-cream flavors strive for the style’s standards, but don’t quite get there.

(Bottled 07/11/2006) Nice and wheaty with a dense layer of yeast. I like the 4.8% ABV on a hot night.
