4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Surprised I haven’t rated this as I’ve enjoyed it from the brewpub many times, still reviewing this from memory though. Pours a fairly hazy straw gold with a fluffy white head. Color is a touch darker and hazier than the Whirlwind. Nose is aromatic esters, dry earthy yeast, light citrus, fresh wheat grains. Mouth is wonderfully fluffy and soft, noticeably more so than Whirlwind or Mad King. Light esters, fresh cracked grains, a really good yeast strain on the finish where soil, grass, and other dry flavors shine. Unfiltered, more complex and interesting than Whirlwind. Softer and way less hop-forward than Mad King. Fresh on tap this is wonderful stuff.

Floral, banana, wheat with some lemon citrus. That about sums it up the flavor and aroma. Fairly fizzy makes it feel somewhat soda like.

Bottle. Pours golden with a thick white head. There is a lot of carbonation in this beer. Smells floral. Tastes like a light wheat with a belgian flair. This isn’t my favorite style but I like it.

On draft, poured a cloudy orange with a decent fluffy whit head. Aromas of banana, clove, and a touch of wheat. Flavor has orange, clove, some spice, and wheat. A nice beer to enjoy while cooking out.

A light gold color, smooth with a clean finish. Not a strong over powering taste. Cost is on the high side.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
MMmmmm goood beer. Served with a nice, thick, foamy, frothy off white head that lasts a while and good lacing. Color is an almost clear yellow amber and lots of bubble trails. Aroma is a divine blend of malt, banana, spices, bubblegum, yeast. Flavor is classic Bavarian Weisse - malt, citrus, yeast, bit of sweet tart. Body is very good although still a little soft and great carbonation. Finish is like flavor, of good length, clean and slow taper. Very good, session beer.

Bright yellow color with a tall white head. Mostly a piney citrus aroma. Taste is slightly bitter with a chewy mouthfeel. Finishes crisp and clean. Very light and refreshing!
