4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pint Bottle...Poured a thick, hazy, golden orage with a great frothy white-to-beige head that lasted quite a bit. The palate was well carbonated with flavors of strong bananas, toasty malts and yeast, very sweet and sugary. Smooth finsh with a slight metalic kick back. One of my fav German Weizens.

Bottle and tap. A bit cleaner and fresher tasting on tap. Pours a wonderful golden yellow with a huge, dense head. Aromas of yeast, banana, lemon, some candied orange towards the end. Crisp, refreshing mouthfeel, with wheat and yeast being most prominent. Plenty of carbonation, with some wonderful banana esthers for a finish. A Great beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy peach amber briefly topped by a quarter inch of white foam. Minimal head retention, slim lacing. Mild sweet wheat and lots of clove in the aroma.
The malt flavor is a blend of an almost honeyed sweet malt and a dry tang wheat. Lots of clove flavor in there too, minimal ripe banana and yeast. The finish is quite dry, almost dusty, with some hop presence and a touch of citrus.
Light body, light carbonation. Fairly smooth. Good enough beer, and I really shouldn’t knock it, but I’d prefer a fresh brewpub hefe any day. Caveat: I am not a clove fan.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2007 Bottle. Pours a light orange color with a huge, foamy white head that leaves thick lace down the glass. Aroma of citrus, orange, grass, dry. Really great smell. Taste is creamy, fruity, smooth and sweet. Very refreshing. This is a great Hefe.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Canned at Suvarnabhumi Airport, Bangkok. Muddy golden, lively creamy head. Evident papery banana aroma. Sweetish with soft mouthfeel - perhaps a bit mellow. A fair amount of esters and a solid body makes for a pretty good standard weizen.
