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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy yellow-gold color with big white head that fades relatively quickly. Nose of sour lemon, faint banana, wheat, hay, and yeast. Flavors of all of the above, with a clean finish and mildly peppery throughout. A bit thin, it did not live up to its aroma, but very tasty and enjoyable nonetheless.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured cloudy golden on tap with a thick white head. Good retention. Aroma had banana, cloves, lemon and hops. Flavor was quite mellow. Mouthfeel was quite creamy. This is a well made German Hefeweizen considering it is from the United States.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of willblake: Pours a very pale clouded golden with a frothy, wispy white and well-lacing head. Sweet authentic, bready, banana, citrus and coriander aroma. Body starts with a pleasant mild sweetness, with good citric and yeasty balance and a touch of peppery coriander spice. Incredibly drinkable, yet has a nice smooth flavor. A good hefeweizen.

On tap at Andy’s. Hazy yellow/golden color with a good sized white head. Yeasty aroma of cloves, banana and just a hint of hops. Flavor of cloves, black pepper and banana. Flavor was a bit muted, but very good and way too easy to drink.

Hazy yellow. Really seriously deep earthy flavor that lies in the fruit range right down to banana if you breath in deeply enough. Let it waft up to you before you quaff up this brew. Supposedly Saaz hops lurk in this brew, but I don’t notice them. Definitely getting that spicy flavor mentioned in the description. Yeasty too. Clean on the palate. Good stuff.
