3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Almost opaque from the beige, yeast cloud that I formed from pouring every last drop of yeast and beer into my glass. Nice foamy, white head, but not rocky. Orange-amber around that cloud. The phenolic aroma blows you away after a good pour--lots and lots of cloves with a burst of lemony bubblegum mingling with subtle banana undertones. As for the flavour, it tastes a lot like it smells, except malt comes through in the flavour that was not apparent in the nose; lemony clove with bubblegum and banana at the very end. Bitterness is pleasant and refreshing, underscored by the effervescence. Light bodied with a clean finish. I like this beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty standard German Hefe appearance here. Aroma is as to be expected as well (banana/clove). Funny how these beers aromas translate into exactly the same flavors. In layman’s terms, it’s not quite as good as Ayinger, but better than most I can get here in Nuevo Mexico. A perfect BBQ beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy golden with a disappearing small white head. Pleasant yeasty aroma. Flavor is wheaty, citrus, and banana. A little more hops show through than the average hefe. Nice smooth flavor. Overall a pleasant and drinkable hefe.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle. wow,it looks incredible poured in my Hacker-Pschorr glass! Gigantic white fluffy head is picturesque and lasts and lasts. aroma is predominately yeast, but also consists of banana, bubble-gum, clove spiciness. yeasty, malty, spicy, and sour. creamy mouthfeel. a very refreshing wheat. One of the best wheats that I’ve had the pleasure of trying.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours hazy orange golden with a foamy white head. Dominating yeast notes in the aroma with wheaty hints. Bittersweet flavor with yeast, fruit and notes of clove. An all right wheat beer, but not outstanding.

Tap from andy’s. Poured a hazy golden yellow. Aroma of mostly yeast. Not my fav style but was refreshing and crisp. Slight taste of clove and banana? Sweet dry finish.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Looks perfect on the pour. Nice foggy orange color. Has a thick head that stays.
Smells of bread dough, cloves and tropical fruit.
The best I can come up with is; it tastes like beer and banana bread. It’s certainly sweet, too sweet. Candylike.
Feels very viscous. Oily.
Needless to say it’s not very palatable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Hazy dark gold, smooth creamy texture, citrussy, very yeasty and a touch spicy with some banana, clove, bubblegum and smoke notes. Long sweetish finish. It is a little sour for my taste.
