look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 1 | feel: 2 | overall: 1

A - Dark orange color, no head, no lacing

S - Really smelled of old bananas to me. Some lemon also. Not a super strong smell.

T - Almost no banana flavor which I found odd for a hefeweizen. a bit of caramel, but overall just tasted like a skunky old beer. Just in case I was crazy, I had 5 other people try a sip or two who are all BAs, and everyone agreed. Either there was something wrong with the keg, or this is just a really terrible beer. For the first time ever I had to send back a beer. The bartender said I was not the first to say it was a drain pour.

M - Flat. No carbonation at all. Not an enjoyable feel.

O - I really like hefeweizen's but this was terrible. I could not get past a couple sips and had to drain pour it. For the first Onion beer I have tried, it really made an extremely poor first impression. I really hope it was just a bad keg, or some really really dirty keg lines (seems unlikely based on the bar).

Served in a tumbler with a lemon, no thanks.

Very murky brownish dark orange color, opaque with a few randomly surfacing stray pond bubbles. Not much head, and no lace at all. Doesn't look all that appealing to be honest.

Sweet bready aroma and taste, some impression of banana chips, but nothing in the way of fresh banana. Light astringency, slight paperiness. Feel is average, the sweetness and lack of expressive yeast makes for an average Hefeweizen.

This is way too much like Hacker-Pschorr or similar mass produced and overly sweet Hefes... take a look at Dancing Man as an example of a good domestic Hefe.

Pours a clear amber color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Slight retention and poor lacing. Smells of wheat, sweet malt, slight alcohol, hint of clove, hint of yeast, and a hint of pine. Fits the style of a Hefeweizen. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of wheat, sweet malt, hint of pale malt, slight yeast, hint of hop, hint of alcohol, and a hint of bubblegum. Overall, poor appearance, very low carbonation for a Hefeweizen, decent aroma, body, and blend.

Pours amber in with haze and a thin head. Smell has predominately banana esters along with a large wheat presence,sweet doughy malt,and yeast. Somewhat thicker for the style but moderate amount of carbonation help cut the body
