3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lightly cloudy golden color with a big white head that settles quickly but sticks around. Mild nose of yeast, banana, citrus, and spice. Palate is refreshing like a Hefe should have. Flavors of spice is most noticable, with mild banana and citrus flavors. A refreshing summer beer.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2007 Excellent weissbier, but it is hard to make these as memorable as a good stout. At any rate, this is refreshing, full-bodied, citrussy thirst-quencher.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Buff colored and cloudy with a fat fluffy white head. Sharp and spicy in aroma with clove and banana, some wet blanket. Light bodied with a rock candy finish. Flavor is of mild banana followed by a bit of a clove bite. A good Hefe but somewhat over rated. But hey, I’ve never had it in Germany.

Wonderfully fragrant hefeweizen. Just a pity that the flavour doesn’t quite match the promise. Intense gold colour with a lasting head. Terrific aroma, big and spicy, with unexpected fruit cake characters. Very inviting. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Bananas are the dominant flavour. A little tart on the tongue with some spice but just a little lacking in complexity. (Bottle)

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2005 Extremely refreshing wheat, with a strong banana and clove aroma and rich wheaty mouthfeel that is just so creamy. Lemon, grapefruit, orange notes coexist with cut grass sourness. Very nicely done by these newcomers...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a amber color very cloudy with a beautiful healthy head. Aroma is mostly cloves with some banannas. Very similar to the Hefewiessbier dunkel that I just finished. Maybe a little lighter and a little more grass/wheat taste to this one. Light in body and carbonated well to make it very refreshing. Starts out sweet with a taste of bananna then to clove taste and finishes with just a little bitter sourness lemon maybe. I think from the wheat. Tasty beer and very nice.

A good hefeweizen even looks refreshing, and this one was certainly that. Pouring a hazy dark yellow with a fluffy white head, this has a banana dominated aroma supported by cloves, some grassiness, and a drop of lemon juice. Nicely carbonated and light in the mouth, this has a yeasty banana flavor along with some sweet maltiness and a touch of wheat tartness. Clean refreshing finish. After all this time, these guys are still doing things right.
