3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy golden coloured body with a hazy amber glow and a thin, very fast dying white head. Aroma of pungent coriander seed, a ton of bananas, yeast, curacao and a pungent bubble gum note - strong and very nice. Medium-bodied; Strong wheat flavour with a lot of tea flavours, some mild floral and grassy notes with a bit of corn and some mild sweetness. Aftertaste is smooth, flavourful, yeastie with some good floral and pungent grassy/herbal flavours with a sweet finish. Overall, a very nice and super easy-to-drink beer, very good for the style and worth searching out for, especially for the summer. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Oliver’s Beverage in Albany, New York on 18-November-2011 for US$2.95 sampled at home in Upstate New York on 08-September-2012.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle in a trade from Tripplebrew. Best by 05 -26- 12. Ok, a tad past its prime. Used my Hacker- Pschorr weizen glass. Carbonation is on the low end with almost no head at all. It does have that nice unfiltered hazy look. Nose is wheat and a mild presence of vanilla. Flavors are yeast, grain, with notes of banana and I can pick up light nuances of vanilla. Some grain. It is an enjoyable American interpretation of the style. And an fresher bottle or on draft would bump up the numbers a bit. Still I enjoyed it much and could drink a solid amount of this. Pretty well made.

12 oz. bottle ordered from Half Time Beverage. Hazy yellowish-orange pour with a bright white head. Aroma typical of most hefeweizens with light citrus peel notes. Great flavor with a very light touch of vanilla and clove blended with banana and faint citrus. Great beer!
