2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from a half liter bottle into a weizen glass. Pours a semi-hazy gold color with a large white head of tight foam. Decent retention. The banana esters in the nose of this beer are very nice. Some clove and nutmeg come through as well, but mostly banana. The taste has an odd metallic thing going on. It’s pretty distracting. Talk about a beer killer. The aroma was so nice, but that metallic taste really bugs me. I can’t get past it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a Guinness tulip as that’s the closest JDW has to a Weizen glass. (Is this the most expensive beer at JDW, by the way?) Big lasting foam, cloudy gold, lemon, spice, banana and yeasty nose, dry-sweet and lightly bitter on the palate, chewy and lightly banana-spicy, earthy bitterness in the finish. Nice example of the style, and a great Brotzeit (breakfast) beer!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
1/29/16 Chicago (1 pint, 0.9 fl oz bottle poured into thin Hefe glass). Clear, pale yellow pour, solid white head. Minimal aroma, sweet but somewhat bland apple taste. Thin texture, minimal carbonation or texture. Disappointing Hefewezien for me.
