2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

Clear yellow, light head and lacing. Nose of light spicy musky wheat and light citrus, some esters. a bit light and thin, seems like an american wheat to me. Finishes lightly sweet, some hops, eh.

Those boys at Troegs know what they’re doing! Almost clear light yellow with a fluffy head. Mild aroma didn’t match up with the big spicy/fruity flavor. Light mouthfeel, crisp and refreshing, super summertime sipper. Excellent session beer.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cloudy yellow. A mild wheat, slightly flat. Not strong enough for my taste. Not bad but it is not a great wheat.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale cloudy golden hue covered by a 1cm white head. Rather simplistic malt profile leaves a lot of room for the obvious banana yeastiness, paired by a strong soapy character. Tartish, oily and really dishes water reminiscent in taste. Wheat comes out gently, but it feels greasy through and through. Average carbonation, foamy texture, light bodied. Could be cleaner and more confident in its maltiness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at Old Dominion Brew Fest ’06. Classic cloudy yellow with a white head. Fruity, estery banana/clove nose. Flavor also has notes of banana, clove plus bubblegum, lemon/citrus and wheat. Moderately sweet. Medium bodied with somewhat lively carbonation. Not my favorite style but I found this to be quite good.
