3.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Fresh aroma of citrus and banana. Hazy light gold with huge head. Mild taste of banana and a lot of wheat. Too carbonated for me. Was hoping for more taste - I prefer the Kristal tbh

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours cloudy orange with a hige frothy head. Aroma of banana, citrus, grass, and yeast. Smooth flavor with a pungent finish. Honestly, not quite as much flavor as I was hoping for. I’ve had this before and have found it to be tastier. I bought the bottle at a store that’s not a "beer" store, so this might have been sitting on the shelf for a while. Will re-rate with another bottle.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2008 Bottle: Poured a deep amber color weisse with a big foamy head with medium retention and no lacing. Aroma of banana and cloves is quite present. Taste is a mix between some banana and cloves ester and some sweet malt. Body is full with loads of lees and minimal filtration and some good carbonation. Not exactly what I was expecting and a bit darker then expected on the appearance side. It is too bad the bottles are not dated since I believe this may have been an older bottle. I will be adding this one to the need to re-rate list.
Rerate June 2008: A lot less sediment then last time with a more pronounced aroma of banana and cloves. Very well done.

Bottle. Huge creamy head. Light gold. Cloudy. Floral aroma with citrus, malt and a bit of musty cellar. Sweet taste; clove and orange prominent. Slight banana note and bubble gum in lingering aftertaste. Mouthfeel is full with zesty foaming. Delicious!

Bottle. Great example of a classic Hefe.
Great summer beer. Nothing bad to say about this one.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Smelled like ketchup and tasted like onion rings. Very unusual brew, with a sour-sweet taste not unlike a saison. Not a particular fan, but props for uniqueness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, split with after4ever. Pours cloudy gold with a lacy white head. Just a bit of banana and soft cloves in the aroma. Medium body and light carbonation. The taste picks up the same notes as the nose. I’d like to try one of these badboys on tap.
