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.

It pours golden with a healthy white head. Aromas of spices from the pepper and cloves are dominant with wheat and a bit of grassy elements. It is smooth with wheat flavors complimented by the hint of bananas, spices and yeast.

Is it possible to give this beer a zero? Based on other ratings I’m missing something because this is one of the worst beers I ever had. Bad batch maybe. Rare for me to drainpour but this one qualified. It was what I imagine cracking open a thermometer and drinking the mercury would taste like. And yes...the entire 6 pack tasted the same.
