3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Great Lost Bear in Portland - Poured a quite hazy yellow in color with a medium bright white head. Significant lacing. Aroma was bready/yeasty with a substancial amount of the classic clove/banana that you would expect of a weizen. Flavor was nutty with the wheat and quite strong of the clove/banana. Nice palate. Really nice...

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Never been a fan of wheats, but this is a good one. Tastes almost like an exotic fruit juice. Frothy white head and decent lacing, opaque tangerine color, spicy and fruity flavor. This one might make me a convert. VERY nice.

Golden pour with a big pillowy head of soft bubbles. Clean crisp wheat aroma. The flavor is slightly sweet with a wheaty refreshing body. Delicious.

Bottle. A cloudy yellow pour with a large white head. I didn’t get anything other than wheat in the aroma. A nice wheat taste with hints of banana. Generally pretty boring.

Draught @ Red Bones 7/12/06. Pours a bright orange color with a large foamy bright white head. Nose is fruity and citrus with some spicy coriander and light banana hints.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. I don’t drink a ton of hefenweizens so call me an amateur, but this beer was tough for me to drink. Salty, spicy, wheat taste. I didn’t pick up on a lot of fruit flavor at all. Nice looking hazy, golden color with a pretty white head. I’ll have to drink a few more natural wheat beers to develop a taste and then come back to this.
