3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The beer pours a hazy light golden orange color with a finger of white head.
S: Starts off with a nice aroma of clove and white pepper. There is a touch of nutmeg along with the sweet banana notes. Fairly sweet with some wheat, bread, and a fair amount of bubblegum.
T: The flavor has quite a bit of bubblegum to it along with a nice banana note. The clove flavor is a bit more subdued than I had hoped, but it is there, particularly on the finish. A bit too carbonated, unfortunately, which kills a bit of the malt flavor.
M: Light in body with a medium to high carbonation and a really crisp feeling on the tongue.
O: An easy to drink hefeweizen (as they should be). Could have used a bit more yeast contribution to it, but still alright.

Excellent hefe. Almost as good as Paulaner, but not quite. This style is one of my favorites, and this beer is one of the best. Excellent on a hot summer day.

12 oz bottle given to me by AirforceHops. Poured hazy honey yellow with a thick bubbly white head that diminished to a thin layer. Nose is of honey, citrus, wheat and spice. Makes my mouth water just looking at it. Hard to see the carbonation in the glass but the bubbles you do see are active. Taste is banana, lots of spice, lemon with lots of wheat in the finish. The carbonation leaves your mouth tingly leaving your belly full. Reminds me sort of champagne. It’s a nice brew. Thanks AirForceHops.

Hazy gold pour, not much head. Flavor is wheat and some banana, very small bite from the carbonation at the end. All around a good wheat beer.

Great banana and clove flavors you come to expect from a unfiltered German style beer. Just a little low on carbonation, and it’s a little watery. I’m really liking the grain bill, very fresh
