3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good tasting, crisp and refreshing, but I can’t in good conscience say that it’s any better than any other hefe. It is crystal clear and light cold. There is some mild bubble gum aroma. It’s nice that a 17oz bottle is less than $2. I’m looking for to the Weihen normal hefe. I basically bought this to cross off the style.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2009 In the aroma I detect bubble gum, banana, incense, malt, yeast, and floral hops. The appearance is golden with a medium head that is foamy and about what I expected. There is cheese in the taste to go along with the wheat, fruit, sourness, and mild bitter hops. The palate is just right for this one. The aftertaste is clean. This is refreshing.

"I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this style. Pour a light golden color with lots of bubbles rising to the top. Head was nice and last the entire beer. Aroma was of bananas, spices. Flavor was nice and crisp bananas and a hint of citrus. Good beer. "

Not a match for their Hefe Weisse. Pleasant enough, but more a refreshment than an outstanding beer!

Bottled, 500ml. Yellow orange clear with white head. Strong spicy (cloves), esthery banana like flavour, a little too over the top for me. Is this added spices methinks. Challenging throughout without being refreshing enough. I enjoyed it, but not in a returnable way.

500 ml bottle. I just had to give this beer a 5 in appearance. Super crystal clear as I had expected. Lagre head that lasted for ever due to the constant stream of bubbles swirling around the glass on the way from the bottlom to the top. It was really fun just to watch this beer. Aromas were a little weak, yeasty and a little banana, but not as much as I expected. Flavor was better. Some bubblegum and more banana, funny that it tasted so much like a Hefe without looking like one. Pretty good actually.
