4.18/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a weizen glass.

A - A gorgeous wheat and orange hue that exudes vibrant color. Nice finger pale head sits atop. Good retention and lacing.

S - Wheat, banana, clove and some citrus. Really nice on the nose.

T - Lots of fruit going on in this one: banana, apple, citrus and pineapple. Some nice wheat malts and a touch of lemon.

M - Medium body with some nice carbonation that sets off the flavors without being overwhelming. Even on the creamy side!

O - This brewery knows what they are doing. The dunkel hefe, the traditional hefe, Korbinian and now this! Excellence.

4.25/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance is murky golden with yellow tints. Massively fluffy head and nice lacing.

Nose is a musty sediment, with fresh wood, lemon, pine, and some sour candy.

Taste is candy-like, with sweet lemon, caramel malt, charred wood chips, sweet corn, and a pleasant tartness.

Mouthfeel is an interesting balance between zesty acidity and oil-slickness, with medium, grating carbonation.

Overall, it is a very good-tasting, complex wheat beer with much nuance.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

hazy, wheaty, golden brew. beautiful head which dissipates very quickly. nice carbo bubbles rising to the surface.
smell is fruity, kind of like a belgium golden ale smell.
taste is also fruity, with some malts and balanced hops taste and a little alcohol taste.
had this many times in the past, one of my 'preferred' brews. first time to review it. like the rest of the brewery's offerings, very nice drinkability, although it tries to be a little different from the 'regular' commercial offerings. wish i were a little more coherent to give this a more deserving review.

3.5/5  rDev -17.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

16.9 oz bottle into a tall pilsner glass. Bargain of a beer at $2.99

A - Dark yellow/light amber body. Quite hazy with rising carbonation. Massive fluffy bone white head forms and settles down to a permanent finger high cap. Moderate lacing.

S - Mostly ripe bananas. Some light spice and tart peach juice. Some standard yeast spice, but the aroma is rather one layered. No malts or wheat present.

T - Similar to the nose. Ripe bananas, a nice peach/pineapple sweetness, and a touch of yeast spice. Barely a hint of biscuity malt. Finishes somewhat cloying and coating with some alcohol present. Light to medium mouth feel with a pleasnt level of carbonation.

O - A solid yet plain beer. Not as vibrant or excellent as their hefe, Still very delicious with a fantastic banana and peach presence.
