3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy yellow color, small white head, lace. Light banana aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Overriped banana, light citrus ... semi-sweet flavor. Quite classic style hefeweizen. Much better than top raters’ old ratings indicated.

I remember someone telling me that this was just an unfiltered version of the Wheaten Ale. That cannot be true, since that beer is quite good and this one is quite lifeless.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. It pours a lightly hazy body, golden in color and with a small, white head. It’s quite bananaish and lemoy on the nose, with some maltyness. The flavor is like a boring German hefeweizen, but not bad in any way. Wheat, banana, bubble gum and some lemon. Medium body, pleasant carbonation. Bubble gum and banana in the end. An easy drinkable one, bet it’s nice in the summer heat, but it’s too boring I think. 121110

On tap at The Taphouse, pours a hazy golden orange. Weak flavour of wheats and citrus. Not a good hefe.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: The pour is a cloudy golden orange color with a finger’s worth of white head.
S: The nose is quite mild and unimpressive, but doesn’t possess the usual sour wheat notes of beers of this style. A bit of citrusy hops and bready malt, but that is about it.
T: A soft sweetness from the wheat and malts, and a bit of yeastiness (which doesn’t surprise me given the amount of sediment on the bottom of the bottle). A light citrus and grass hop flavor and very soft bitterness.
M: Light to medium in body with moderate carbonation.
D: Not a bad beer, but somewhat one note and bland. It was good for the occasion where it was being served (a wedding), but not something I would go out and pick up.

I rated this one before it went "haywire." Not the best of the genre. Cloudy yellow pour. Nose and taste of dry wheats and banana. Rated 11/3/2000

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma is bready/biscuity with a suspicion of lemon. Hazy orangy gold color with a white head that just filmed. Medium bodied. Definite wheat malt. Some light lemon. The banana is truly hard to find. There’s a bit of citrus sour, and the finish has enough bitter to salvage the product. A big Bavarian banane it’s not. An American wheat it is.
