3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet malty aroma with slight hoppy style.
Appearance is a cloudy texture and decent head.
Very mild but pleasant taste. Easily drinkable. and one that goes good with a warm spring day and chilly night.

Bottle from Troegs sampler pack. Cloudied gold with a small frothy white head. Nose is instantly spicy and wheat laden. Lots of lemony citrus notes, yeast and soft banana notes. Taste is creamy and smooth with sweet malt notes, lots of wheat, yeast, banana, lemon, light bubblegum, and light grassy notes. Body is light and smooth. Creamy at times with mild carbonation notes. Finishes with more banana, yeast, wheat, spices, lemon, and grassy notes.

Wheat beers are not my cup of tea but this was rather pleasing. Nice and chunky but not to overpowering with the clovey, gummy flavors. I enjoyed this dearly. Creative label, reminds me of "FREAKY JASON"..

A solid wheat the delivers. A perfect summer drink. Smooth and easy to drink. Fine example of the style.

Bottle, from sampler pack. Decent. Probably the best American version I’ve had of a hefeweizen not made by a homebrewer. Still could use more weizen flavor.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2006 Good hefe by Troegs. Pours a yeasty -haze straw with a diminished head. Aromas of bananas, spice and confectioner’s sugar. Light cloves are interlaced with bananas and lemon. The finish shines forth more clove and spice predominance. Crisp carbonation gives this a cleansing mouthfeel; great for warm days and quite refreshing. Begs for another!

This brew apears golden and cloudy, its aroma seems sweeter than the flavor. The beer has a nice sharpness to it. very easy to drink, very smooth.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2010 12 oz Bottle: Pours a straw golden color with bubbly head, looks like a lot like a macro, only a nice lacing of carbonation keeps it from a low score. The aroma is of clove, wheat, bananas, and spices. The flavors are initially of pears, with a dominance of cloves, some hints of wheat, bananas, yeast and spices. Nice little carbonation kick/bite to a very smooth and good beer. I am liking everything I’ve seen from Troegs.
Damn you new label, you are not a new beer. Oh well.
I might say more pears ans spices than I did previously. Very belgian in nature.

The spice is very inherent and the bananas hardly noticeable. I would recommend if you’re a fan of the other Troegs brews or if you like wheat beers a lot.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not bad, i wish it was a little sweeter. it has the typical zesty spice of a hefew, but lacks the sweet citrus flavour I have come to expect. I like the colour, I wish it was hazyer, and I wish it was smoother.
