3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle, from Dutch’s. Enjoy by: 19 Aug 2015. Pours a hazy kind of darker orange amber color. Big khaki head fills the pint glass to the rim, before slowly subsiding to a pretty respectable amount. Leaves good, thicker lace. Kind of spicy nose, hefe yeast, german wheat. Kind of toasty. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, light to moderate carbonation. Light slick texture. Moderate bitter, moderate sweet taste. Alcohol works pretty well, not very noticeable at all. Nice lightly spicy finish. Pretty solid weizenbock.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft in fl. Pleasant aroma_ hard to place. Not a fruity wheat by any means. Almost taste like a tripel. Sweet but heavy. Copper haze with appropriate head. Much better than expected. Actually, great

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is bananas and root beer. Pours brown/yellow like an arnold palmer with a nice hazy thick body and a big white head. Taste follows the nose with root beer and banana with light wheat and clove notes. Very cheap tasting interpretation of this style. Not a huge fan.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a nice, hazy, dark copper. Thin head doesn’t immediately remind me of a German beer. Smells great though. Banana, clove, citrus and wheat that is also present in the taste, however there is an astringency on the finish that is off putting. Sweet malts dominate. It’s decent, but not one I’d revisit.

Bottle into tulip glass, dirty orangy brown color with fluffy tan head. Aroma of wheat, caramel, banana, clove and citrus notes. Taste adds notes of fruity malt, bread, grainy, brown sugar and mild spices. Medium body, low-moderate carbonation, creamy, dry with crisp light bitter finish. Nice hefty lager for the cooling months.
