3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2007 From the bottle.
Pours a cloudy wheat with a great big head.
The aroma is sweet lemon, yeast, spice, banana esters, and the essence of beer. The flavor is a classic and delightful wheat beer, and the palate is smooth and easy to drink. This one goes down beautifully on a summer day, but not at the expense of soul. A very fine beer.

Thanks for scoring this one lilkem. A lemon, hay, and bubblegum aroma. A golden apperance with a large head. The flavor was wheat, lemons, bubblegum, and hay. The mouthfeel is dry and doughy. I dont care for the style but I will give it some props for being right on par. Good summer beer.

The aroma did not at first impress me, but the mild clove taste and light aftertaste sold me quickly. Very smooth and not in the least bad tasting. I liked this hefeweizen very much..

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
A darker yellow-tan color than the average hefeweizen with a healthy pillowy head and aroma of cereals, cloves, and a bit of yeast. Mouthfeel is full and creamy, rich. Taste here is dominated by the wheat malt, with banana flavor muted relative to other hefes. Light clove spice in the finish, but doesn’t have much sharpness. A unique hefeweizen indeed, more malty and rich than spicier, spritzier interpretations.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Hazy yellow, very thick and somewhat dirty, large white frothy head, nice lacing, strong carbonation. Clove on the nose, no real banana, slightly yeasty/bready. Slight banana emergence on the tongue, cloves, and quite bready/doughy. Wheaty mouthfeel, average body, but very clean and crisp. Very slight citrus on the finish, bready, with lingering clove and spices. An old standby when I want a German Hefe.
