2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2003 Has a nice head, and pretty good aroma, but this beer is about as average as you can get. There is absolutely nothing special about it.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden with a huge frothy head. Less than pleasant lightly malty aroma. Smooth and boring, lighlty hoppy, watery mouthfeel, slighy bannana hints.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour clear gold with a large white head. A fruiy citrus aroma. A very nice light, but not watery, mouthfeel. The flavor is yeasty. It is not too sweet. Has a good balance. The overall flavor is subdued without being weak or bland. An exellent summer brew or when something light and refreshing is desired.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big fluffy white head. Clear golden hue. Banana nose. Pleasant mouthfeel, although all flavors are pretty bland. Nothing special, and as Oakes says why bother without the yeast.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear golden pale, huge white head that mosty lasts, leaves good lacing. Lot's of tiny bubbled carbonation present in the body. Aroma is soft, mostly citric (lemon/lemon peel), some banana. Flavor is sour, citric, light amounts of banana. Thin mouthfeel, very bubbly (maybe even "spritzy"). Definately takes a back seat to the Helles Hefe, IMO.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Drinkable kristalwizen style wheat beer. Has a very cloudy appearance. It's not a bad beer to drink during the summer.
