3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed 2/19/13. 16.9 fl oz bottle into a weizen glass.
A: Pours a typical cloudy gold color. This doesn’t have an amazing head for the style, but it’s still a two finger white shade with decent retention and a good creaminess to it.
S: Fairly banana-heavy, with some crisp wheat and bubblegum esters. Touches of clove and coriander also come through. Aromatically, it’s well done, but not a standout in the style.
T: Pleasantly mellow banana esters start things off. The finish is mild wheat malt and the faintest ’ping’ of earthy noble hops, but perhaps my favorite feature is the note of milky cream that ties the midtaste It’s not particularly bold, inspiring, or complex, but like I said - pleasantly mellow.
M: I could use a creamier finish here - the astringency is a bit too coarse for my tastes. Having said that, this ticks many good qualities I expect from the style: nice dryness/crispness, light in its texture, high (not overbearing) carbonation, and superb drinkability.
O: Good stuff. Don’t know what else to say apart from this being a solidly good weizen.

Classic Hefeweizen from a brewery that has been active since the 17th century. Very thick, fluffy head, hazy ochre blonde colour; powerfully refreshing aroma, estery (banana, orange, almond), soft yeastiness and sourish wheat; very soft, mellow yet refreshing palate, nice balance between the different components from the aroma, silky, pleasant wheat sourishness in the finish. Elegant and delicate, exemplary for its style and very thirst-quenching.

Light opaque gold, strong white head. Some yeasty notes on the nose, not much else. Light sweet-ish taste with citrus and yeast as notable flavours. Ok, I could go for another.

Pretty darn good for a relatively cheap beer at Schnucks! Kind of a skunky-ness to it but that’s prob from improper storage from grocery store. Good yeasty aroma and flavors. Cloudy goodness. Slight citrus. Not bitter. Good brew!

wonderfu hefeweizen, aroma is papaya with a hint of rainforest and the huge head and foggy orange body just demand you to drink it. nice refreshing flavour even without a requisite fruit. In wide distribution, something you can definitely enjoy on a humid Hondurand vacation.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy pale golden with a good white head.
Aroma. Soft ripe fruits including banana.
Light body is a bit thin but has very fine soft carbonation.
Banana carries over to the flavor which also has light malts and a touch of hops.
Overall rather mediocre.
