Keg @ Ale Asylum. 08/14/16. Hazy gold pour with a small head. Nose plays it pretty straightforward. Classic hefe aromas of banana and clove. Fresh baked bread. Flavor is sweet and crisp. Cracker and sugar. Banana. Lightly spicy on the finish. A bit of heat comes through. Medium body, pillowy carb.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A- Fruity esters, wheat, lemon, lavender, soap.
A- Yellow color, cloudy liquid, white head.
T- Banana, bubble gum, clove, lemon, wheat, subtle black pepper.
P- Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, balanced finish.
O- A solid representation of the style. Too easy to drink. I don’t think I made the can last even a full 10 mins and that was with me trying to take my time to enjoy it. Maybe not my favorite hefe but I could drink this anytime, anywhere.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
It’s becoming increasingly clear to me that having great German beer without leaving the states means going to Wisconsin. Unshadowed was something of a strange deviation in a night spent enjoying the hoppiest goodness Ale Asylum could throw at me. This beer is yellow with a fine layer of white foam. Notes of banana, clove, coriander, and bubblegum from the yeast phenols. Creamy and dry texturing. A great style representation and easy as hell to drink.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pour - cloudy straw body - medium white head that recedes quickly - light lacing. Aroma is very well done - lots of banana and clove...yeasty, bit of bubble gum - very very good. I must say, reminded a bit of the Dancing Man, which stands by itself for the style in my mind. Flavor is okay...borders on good...just doesn’t stand up to the nose. Bready and yeasty, it just doesn’t really do a whole lot. Palate is similarly a bit thin - must admit that I was a bit shocked to see the ABV - doesn’t come through in any way. Good overall drink that I’d have again...maybe I can just smell a friend’s!
