3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Stopper bottle. Pours deep brown, light tan head lingers a little while. Almost completely lacks hoppiness of any sort. Interesting brew. Faintly sweet burnt chocolate on tongue, almost like Tobblerone or some similar candy I can’t quite put my finger... err tongue on. I liked it. Not extremely complex, fairly dry finish. Inoffensive.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Swing top bottle.
Hazy amber with a weak head despite medium carbonation. Medium body.
Aroma is largely that of a regular hefe but the darker malts show clearly in the flavor.

Hazy light brown color with off white head. Aroma of bread and orange peel. Medium bitterness and sweetness with citrussy flavors from the wheat and yeast. Ok weisbier with a little extra barley malt flavor than light weissbiers.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Transfer from BA review on 1-10-13-
Poured from bottle into a weizen glass
Appearance –Pours a hazy-murky lighter brown color with a rather thick and creamy tan head. The head has a wonderful level of retention fading very slowly over time to leave a medium level of lacing.
Smell- The aroma is quite sweet. It is heavy of a caramel and dark fruit smells with a light roasted brown bread. Other yeasty aromas and aromas of banana and clove are there as well.
Taste – The taste begins with a bready and light caramel taste. As the taste advances further flavors of yeast and banana come to the tongue. From there the roastiness of the flavor grows a little bit more toward the middle/end of the taste. At the end flavors of clove and cardamom then come to the tongue, along with a bit of citrus hop, leaving a lightly bittered and spiced bready flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The thickness/creaminess of the beer is on the average to slightly above average side of a brew of 5.4 % , while the carbonation level is very low. The body is decent for the bready and yeasty flavor of the brew, but the very light level of carbonation does not seem to suit the brew well, with a grater carbonation likely giving it a more refreshing flavor as well as being good for the spice and sweeter flavors of the taste.
Overall- Ah… it was alright, but nothing too special here. The taste was fairly balanced, but the mouthfeel was a little off. Not one I would likely go back too. While I would not go back to it I would say that is at least worth one try for anyone who has not had it.

500 ml. swingtop that appears to be best by 2009. Pours a nearly opaque darkish brown with a lasting creamy film. Big aroma of spicy banana bread, caramel, toasted walnut and maybe some dry grass and nutmeg. Taste is the same rich goodness with a touch of sourish, lemony yeast and tart apple to help balance the big malty flavors. Slightly bigger than light body is soft and sweet but finishes with a delicate balance.

Very enjoyable. Malty delight. Roasted, perhaps burnt even, malt flavor, which is the primary and maybe only note. I like this one.

(bottle - 500 ml fliptop) Cloudy amber pour. Mild aroma of sour wheat with some light caramel notes. Flavor is the same. Mildly sweet and very dry that pretty much ends the flavor. Not very good.
