Very enjoyable. Had great taste to it and I loved the aftertaste as well. Fruity aroma to it as well. Overall I thought that this was a good Hefeweizen.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy golden, fuller white head. Light banana aroma, a bit of clove. Some wheat in the flavor, banana again, and a bit of lemon. Smoother medium body, but a tiny bit astringent. Not bad but it pale in comparison to its German cousins.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Beef OíBradys in Lynn Haven, FL. Well folks, other than Red Hood IPA, this is the pinnacle of available "craft brews" in Panama City. No wonder I want to open my own place. This stuff is ok, but to think this is as good as it gets makes me want to heave. The pour offers a small white head that quickly fades. Hazy gold with the white glow of the yeast in suspension. Lightly citrusy, yeasty, wheat-grainy nose. Med/light body.Yeasty, light malt flavors, with maybe a hint of fruit...maybe bananas?. The mouthfeel is very thin. They throw a slice of orange or lemon in which doesnít help things at all. Finish is dry...yep, thatís about it. Well, I guess you could do worse.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2005 Pours out hazy yellow color with a head. Nice citcus aroma. Kinda light, nice citcus flavor. Sweet finish from malt. Not bad. Go great with pizza.

I was a bit disappointed by this. I thought that it was rather light and did not have the nice, sweet and spicy taste that I like in a good wheat beer. Ok, but lacking some grunt.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma is light giving off a hint of lemon. Taste is not as complex as the German Hefes, there was not much spiciness or clove notes. Pretty sweet with flavors of banana, wheat and lemon. A little bland. The mouthfeel was full and round. Not bad by any means but it needs more. Eh.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy and gold. Not much head at all. Not much aroma either. Smells like wood. Not a lot of flavor or bitterness. Wheat is the most dominant flavor. Gets almost soapy tasting after a bit. It would probably be an adequate beer on a warm summer day after mowing the lawn.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Vastly overrated, but I guess itís indicative of the American hefe style. Murky beer, tastes slightly less wretched with a lemon slice, which should tell you that itís very citrus-heavy to begin with. Iím not a fan of the American hefeweizens, and this beer does nothing to change that.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a very hazy golden color. Aroma is sweet and hoppy. Mild wheat flavor. A little sweetness and hoppiness. Not a ton of flavor, but it is a good refreshing brew.

One of my favorites, but I admit to enjoying it more on draft than in bottles! Fortunately, more places in the NYC/NJ area are carrying it!
