3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from bottle. Cloudy golden orange color, nice foamy head that lasted a bit, no lacing that I could see...The aroma was very nice, citrus and bananas...The flavor was extremly mild and a tad disappointing for me. Very drinkable beer, all and all, but not one single flavor jumped out at me on this one. A bit of a let down, really...

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a golden orange with a two finger head that leaves behind a thick coating of lace. I really like the appearance of Hefe-Weizens
Smell; bits of orange peel, ripe bananas, cloves with a very solid caramel malt presence.
Taste; sweet honey like flavor upfront, followed by oranges bananas and cloves. There’s a nice bread dough and caramel malt backbone, with just some hints of black pepper. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, and very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy orange-gold with a large white head. Initially a rather vegetal aroma was followed by yeast, old leather and a salty seaside tang. Later some bubblegum emerged. Taste had sourness, cloves, some wheaty background and a late bitterness. Thought-provoking if not completely delicious.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2006 Specimen no. 200, courtesy of the in-laws. Hastily chilled sample in the brewery’s novelty, world cup-shaped Weizen. Deep murky orange topped with fine white foam. Plenty of spicy, piney dryness, perfumey banana and sour wheat in the nose. Smoothly milky mouthfeel. Flavour oddly stale and grainy at first, but plenty enough fruit (banana, peach?) ,tangy wheat, and strange dryness emerging to keep me raising the vase. A woodily boozy, almost smoky rum note also, unusual for a Hefe. That graininess reminds me of Etalon. A dry, complex and difficult-to-describe example of the style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow gold with a very nice white head. Nose is wheaty and banana. This continues into the flavor. A nice balance between the sweet and sour characters. This was a good hefeweizen although I think it was slightly thin.
