3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a thick, heavy looking murky orange with a very small head. Aroma is nice though. Lots of yeasty banana and clove esters with some other bubblegum sweetness. Flavor is a nice hefe honey malt with more of the banana and something almost like a berry flavor toward the end. The rub here is a bit of alcohol harshness after the swallow. It’s pretty decent but not your run of the mill hefe.

Dark orange pour with a small puffy head. Aroma of sweet malty wheat ,over ripe banana and some spice. Flavor is pretty much the same minus the banana. Sticky mouth feel. Not bad. Just disappointed that I got zero banana or bubblegum in the taste.

I think the unique addition of more malt backbone to this hefeweizen added a nice special touch to the brew. It made it thicker and have a bit more body as well as a nice rich somewhat roasty aftertaste. Nice brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer pours an opaque brownish orange color with a medium white head that fades somewhat quickly. The aroma blends wheat and bubblegum with a hint of nuttiness, and the taste is mildly sweet with a really nice wheat aftertaste. The palate fuses a thick texture, medium-light body, and a soft carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Single bottle from Binny’s/ Bubblegum smell under the cap and into the glass. Slightly darker than most hefes, as if it was meant to be had in the fall and winter. Puffy hefe head. Some more bubblegum in the tongue, but behind it is a bit of wheat spice. Drinks pretty nice, although, yes, a bit hefty. Sweetness tends a bit on the saccharine side, but does not linger too long on the tongue.

Bottle at the brewpub. Slightly hazy light orange pour with no head. A bit of rotten banana and veggie. Not as bad as I just made it sound but not good either. Kind of flat. This is pretty bad.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy deep orange with a small white head. The aroma has banana, bubblegum, rich wheat, cream and hints of spices. It has a pretty full lush body for the style and its a bit sticky and has soft carbonation. The flavor starts with bubblegum, banana, cotton candy and cream. The finish is on the astringent side. Fair.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light and malty with citrus, spice, and yeast. A bit light overall, definitely not feeling the higher alcohol content. Not bad, not memorable.
