2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a darker golden color with a moderate white head on it. Nose has a bit of citrus in there over top of a rather earthy yeast. Taste is actually a little sweet up front and remains mildly sweet throughout, with some citrus coming through subtly. It’s OK, but nothing special for me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle- from CBA Explorer 12 pack. Pours a bright golden tan with a characteristic foamy white head. The aroma is classic German Hefe notes of banana and clove. The flavors match the nose with slight biscuit notes from the malt along with creamy wheat. Overall, a very well done German Hefe from a brewery that defined the American version.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint from Growl Movement in S.Salem.
In appearance this is a very murky golden yellow with a small white head.
Bubblegum,sweet over-ripe bananas,cherries and clove lovely lovely aromas.
Taste is similar to the aroma( thank goodness) with a little more spicy clove.
Luxuriant mouthfeel..medium with low carbonation..great.
LIke many have said why oh why is this not the flagship instead of the lame version?

Pour is a cloudy blonde with a small white head. Aroma is corriander and clove. Kind of a surprise in a good way. Flavor is lots of wheat esters some bubblegum and banana. Maybe a touch watery but this was overall and pretty kickass hefe. I hope this makes it into their full lineup.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle from Mile High Wine & Spirits into a pint glass. Gold, pale and hazy with a small white head. Aroma of strong banana, spicy clove, sweet malts, bread, hay, and light floral notes. Similar flavor, starts out sweet and fruity and moves to a crisp, light bitter finish. Average body with ample carbonation. Pretty refreshing, I like it.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Btl pours cloudy, light pale, glowing yellow color almost wit like. Massive creamy white head that vanished into a thin head that lingers for a while, leaving good lacing on glass. Smells of banana, bubble gum, grains and clove. Tastes of banana, lightly sweet malt, spicy wheat grains, a hint of citrus and the phenol/esters of classic german yeast. Light body,smooth and tingly mouthfeel, medium to high carbonation, tart,spicy finish. Great rendition of the style. Nice fresh and crisp flavors of malts,yeast strain and hops work perfectly together.This beer would be outstanding on a hot summer day. Widmer bros. put it in 6 pks and make it available year round. DELICIOUS! PROST!
