3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Pours a bright but slightly hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is nicely fruity, somewhat citric and banana with a nice subtle spiciness. Flavor has a nice wheat backbone with the bright citric and pineapple character finishing crisp and clean. Medium body and a sharp carbonation. Very tasty beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pours gold with a slight white head. Fruity, grassy aroma. Lots of fruity esters that mix weirdly, but good, with the loads of hops. A very unique flavor profile of pineapple, banana, grass, pine. Nice and crisp.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
It looks nice, smells nice , and has all the signifiers of a well-made beer, but where’s the banana? I’d recommend this to people but I get the feeling that the hops in this are out-muscling the complexities. Not my bag.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler from Joe Canal’s in Lawrenceville, NJ. Pale yellow gold color with a medium-sizes creamy white head with nice lacing. Fresh citrusy wheat malt aroma has elements of lemon, yeast and minerals. Flavor is crisp and dry with notes of citrus and spicy wheat malt. Very flavorful and refreshing and true to the style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear golden yellow on tap with fluffy white head that sticks nicely. Aroma of German yeast and wheat. Taste follows, clean and well balanced, an American hefe I might be able to actually drink.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Proof. Pale golden pour with a small bubbly white head. Sweet bubblegum aroma with pale wheat malts, subtle spice and yeast with a catty hop presence. Flavor is similar with a silky mouthfeel and spicy and catty hop kick at the end. Not bad and very drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Growler from the brewpub through trade with Watson1977. Less than two weeks tap to consumption. Pours clear pale golden with medium white head. Nice small bubble lacing, medium body, medium carbonation and spicy aroma. Taste is complex spicy, yeasty, and some esters. Just as much a belgian ale as a hefeweizen? Not one of my favorites, but different.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler from JC’s. Really abundantly estery nose, just throwing them off left and right, golden sunshine with some lemongrass and a lot of lemony citrus, yeast. Golden body with a lacing, fluffy bright white head. Crisp and minerally taste, principally yeasty with strong citrus (and rising orange) and faint bubblegum. Low bitterness, but a nice depth piece. Meidum body. Good quencher, worked well as a lawn mower despite the extra alc. Definitely a Victory Weizen strain, the kind that inspires strong feelings on both sides.
