look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a hazy gold with lots of visible carbonation with a finger and a half of a fluffy white eggshell colored head.

Smells of cloves and bannana, bubblegum and some sweet thick bread or biscuits.

The taste is very subdued compared to the nose. Taste is more of a plain wheat beer with some hefe additives.

Mouth is light with a bit of a wet finish.

Overall the taste does not quite follow that fragrant boquet that comes across on the nose. Just seems to to taste like a weakened wheat beer with a rich aroma on the nose. For that it is an easy drinking beer and is quite refreshing. Where I am at geographically I would call this a summer beer. A nice easy drinking beer on a hot day.

Poured into a half pint glass: color is hazy gold, huge dense frothy head - at least 1.5 inches thick, head lingers for minutes, lacing on the glass.

Smell is easy going structure of a hefe - wheat, biscuit, toast, then moderate yeast phenols and banana notes, with light teaberry or bubble gum.

Taste is similar with simple but well done hefeweizen flavors of wheat, biscuit, toast, yeast phenols with banana/bubble gum notes.

Mouthfeel is soft and then dry; softness from the wheat is pleasant and the drying form the fermentation does some clean up.

Overall this is a great looking and great tasting brew, a nice robust wheat character and just enough spice/phenol character.

Pours orange/yellow, very hazy with serious foam and lacing. Lots of good chunks floating around, very carbonated. Smells very light, banana, floral, yeast, citrus. The taste follows the nose, very light citrus, banana, yeast tones. This is a great summer beer, not too heavy but loaded with flavor. Light to mild medium beer, good any time of year.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

The appearance was a cloudy/hazy golden orange body, two finger white foamy lumpy head that lasts for a good three minutes and then ends up leaving a spectacular clingy yet somewhat foamy lacing. The smell was a "banana"/estery aroma and cloves, light citrus. The taste was the previously mentioned flavors with a nice big wheat bite, all combined in the aftertaste, dry clove-like finish. On the palate, it sat about a light to medium, sessionable, carbonation is spot on for the style and for me, also becomes a bit creamy. Overall, pretty nice German Hefeweizen and always super nice to have this time of the year.

Look is light orange with big fluffy head. Aroma is dominated by clove, but taste is fruitier (bubble gum and banana). Starts strongly sweet and ends sweet as well but a little lighter. Very smooth almost creamy mouthfeel. A very drinkable and tasty beer.

Typical German beer to remove thirst. I left me indifferent. Not the kind of beer that makes me enjoy. Not a bad beer but simply for thirst.

Pours orange, cloudy, voluptuous tight head

Clove, banana, sweetness, light carbonic spritz and a small metallic note. Some floral qualities too

Flavour similar, more breadyness, lactic juicyness on the end, no bitterness perceptible.

Thin body for strength as you would expect with the high carbonation.
