3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from bottle. Smells like a jelly sandwich. Ugly orange gold with no head. Pear and banana dominate flavor, with clove and a bit of pepper in a dry wheat base. Could use a bit more carbonation. Bottle is just past its "best by" date, which might explain its feel. I like this, and will look for a fresher one in the future.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Stylistically, this was pretty good, I thought. Thick, dense long-lasting head with the phenolic aromas I expected. A good amount of funk but drinkable. Solid but there are others I would buy again first.

Very enjoyable. Strong malt notes. Lower ABV, which is always impressive. Recommended.

Pours a clear gold with almost no head. Aroma is sour apples and banana. Mild carbonation in the mouth with tastes of clove, banana and slight malt. Not my thing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mildly tart. Other than that, this is a good fruity wheat hefeweizen. Yeasty, not much banana but more clove and other fruit flavors.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gift from Tyler. Nice notes of banana, wheat, clove and orange. Body was a tad too thin for my tastes, but over all, a good representation of the style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Refreshingly citrusy/wheaty aroma. Malt is a strong orange/clove/banana flavor. Slight spice but not very yeasty...a bit too carbonated perhaps. Not perfectly smooth but above average flavor for a wheat. Banana notes in the finish

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a small head and no real lacing. Aroma of banana, citrus bit of spice and yeast. Taste on citrus, banana, subtle malt sweetness, a bit herbal with yeast in the background. Mild bitterness and a bit of a tangy finish. Light body, smooth and a bit of an herbal flair. Not a bad beer just not one of my favorite styles.
