3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
500mL bottle purchased at BevMo in Vacaville. The aroma on this has a good deal of estery yeast character, which imparts mostly bubblegum and a little banana. Mostly bubblegum, though. Not much else, other than the bubblegum. Mildly hazy dark amber body with a bit of a garnet hue, too. Medium, fizzy, khaki colored head and good retention. Starts with some mineral flavor, before some estery bubblegum makes way in the middle. Becomes a rather metallic later on. Subdued wheat flavor. The carbonation on this is perfect, and it just dances on the tongue. Not a huge fan of the aroma, but the mouthfeel is dynamic.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mittelbraunes Weizen mit sichtbaren Hefeflocken und ordentlich Schaum. In der Nase hefig-bananig. Der Antrunk ist schön sämig geraten. Geschmacklich wie das Helle Tucher Hefe Weizen auf der hefig-fruchtigen Seite, wobei der Körper hier beim Dunklen nicht so säuerlich, sondern lieblich malzig ist, was die Süffigkeit angenehm steigert. Solide Braukunst!

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Refrigerated 0.5 L bottle (like the bottle design) poured into a weizen glass. Pours clear light brown with small off-white head. Descent lacing, creamy medium body, medium/light carbonation, and light roasted malt aroma. Taste is roasted malt, some nuts, some banana, some wet paper bag, and a hint of metallic in the finish. Plain for the style, expected more based on the 90 style rating.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Large tan head over fairly clear deep reddish brown body. Aroma of banana liquor, bubble gum and caramel, quite pleasant. Taste of banana, yeast, caramel and a bit of roast, which comes out more in the palate. Body is a bit thin with the palate a bit bitter and roasty. I got the distinct impression this would be better fresh from tap, but it was pretty decent as is.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
16.9oz bottle - pours opaque amber with creamy khaki head and decent lacing. Nose is wheat, banana and cloves. flavor adds caramel and, unfortunately, some less than flavorful hops - wet paper bag. The aftertaste is the death of this beer. It just falls apart and it is a same because it starts very warm, tropical and festive, but then it tastes like malt liquor. If you sip it fast enough, you avoid the issue until the last sip. That said, it is a good thing this is 5.3%. Taste is sweet.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a refrigerated half liter bottle into a weizen glass. Pours a dark, translucent brown with a light khaki colored head of foam. The aroma is fairly roasty with notes of grass coming through on top of caramel, toasted bread, and leather. The taste is fairly dull, with some nutty notes coming through, but I feel like I’m really having to work to draw that conclusion.
