3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
It poured a hazy yellow/orange and initially leaves a big three inch white foamy head in my weizen glass. The head does eventually die after five minutes. The very hazy yellow/orange body does show some light slowly moving carbonation. The smell has the clove up front with the esters powerfully backing it up. Some lemon comes out as well. As the beer warms, it gets a bit more peppery. The taste is sweet yet peppery at different times. It comes across pretty smooth in the taste. The palate is about a medium and initially sharp cutting my tongue like a knife. Fortunately, as the beer warms, it smoothes out a bit. This is not exactly a sessionable beer, a one and done bomber, though the alcohol isn’t tasted, it gently gets felt after a good hour. There is a slight sticky aftertaste and finish. Overall, this is good for its style and good for me.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0,50 bottles purchased at Beerville store in Belgrade-Serbia. Ciao Vlada! Pours cloudy vivid golden, a bit pale with a never ending and tick white cap. Nose: wheat, banana, clove, spices. Mouth: gentle carbonation, mild and pleasant bread feel, medium dry finish. Never too sweet neither too dry or bitter. Perfect execution of the style (which sadly I do not admire).

Flaska från Saveur-bier. Gyllenfärgad, lätt disig högt vitt skum som lägger sig efter 5 minuter utan att lämna några rester. En storebror till en hefe. LIte större kropp, högre sötma och lite alkohol i bakgrunden, lite mindre syrlighet och skumbanan. Men samma kryddighet och jästsmaker. Riktigt gott och väldigt välbalanserat.

Golden colour with small but compact head. Aroma of dark fruits, bananas, citrus and some hebs. Taste of hops, dark fruits and bananas which prevails in aftertaste. Very drinkable beer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from 1 pint, 9 ounce bottle purchased at Market District Giant Eagle in Columbus, Ohio, tasted on March 12, 2015. Cloudy yellow hue, banana/clove aroma, banana/spice/wheat flavor with some depth. Not exactly my thing--it seems to have more hefeweizen attributes than I would have expected-- but graded leniently since it is well made. Anyone who is a fan of the style or of hefeweizens should definitely try it.

Golden orange color, hazy with perfect head and lacing. Aroma of clives, banana, yeast. Taste a bit sweet with lemon sour notes, very drinkable, slightly sweet finish with a hint of akcohol reminding this is bock beer. Absolutely great brew.
