4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Two 12 oz bottles poured into a weizen glass.
A: Pours a hazy golden color. The head is a two finger white shade; a bit thinner looking than what I like out of my hefeweizens, but with nice retention. Not much lacing here.
S: This is heavy in banana esters. Huge whiffs of bubblegum and sweet vanilla hit my nose, as well as some general ’wheat’ malts. I’m fairly impressed by the aroma here.
T: Initially, it starts off with fruity, with loads of banana and faint orange. Afterwards come notes of vanilla, wheat, and clove...it’s quite vanilla forward, actually. A bit of hop bitterness builds up as more is consumed, suggesting decent layering/depth.
M: Soft and creamy at first, before developing into a dry, astringent feel. This also seems to bring out some hop flavors on the back end, as well. Carbonation is strong if not oppressive, and the drinkability is excellent thanks to the moderately light texture.
O: A great hefeweizen is worth its weight in ambergris, and this is certainly a great example of the style. This seems to have more complexity than others in the style, also - including the 1000 pound (and 1000 year old) gorilla-in-the-room from Weihenstephaner.

Bottle thanks to Jason! Pours a hazy pale yellow with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has notes of lots of earthy wheat with just a bit of banana and clove. Flavor has earthy wheat notes throughout with a bit of clove and banana towards the finish.

The strangest thing about this beer - the nutmeg and spice. But it works, and that coupled with the banana and bread make for a pretty unique hefe that is enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden yellow with a thin white head. Smells very malty, very spicy. The flavor simple, not too much going on. A little sour with an artificial banana candy after taste.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft in a glass. Pours an amber brown with little head. Taste is mostly of cloves and would pair well with bar food. Perhaps too much banana taste. Refreshing and easy to drink overall.

From a bottle. The good: fresh, crisp and well attenuated. The bad: to far on the clove side.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz into a mamoth Magic Hat Lucky Kat 25oz glass. Nice for a 500th review, I guess. Relaxing pour, harvest wheat at its best, malty, grainy, and a nice corn/starch melody. The malt balance withstands a few glances of the mind, but bringing forth the hops dip and then this brew sizzles. there is a nice bite to it that other wheats seldom hold, a tangy punch of malt and hops that is full frontal. Color is shaded orange with yellow upbringings and striped neon highlights. Head is mellow and fizzels out fast. A relaxing brew of the masses, but if you didnt know,this is an exemplery notch on the wheat scale.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, bottled on 06-06-13. Hazy gold pour with receding bubbly white head. Aroma of intense bubblegum, fruity and bubblegum, I was a little thrown back actually. Flavor is sweet, wheaty, more bubblegum. Practically no banana/clove, light spicy finish. Palate is a bit undercarbed, especially for the style. Not very good.

Not sure where I tried it first but ended up sharing it with family at Emily's 12th bday party.
Had it on tap at The Grey Lodge Pub. Made me get this app
