3.79/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours a crystal clear copper tinged orange color. Thick velvety white head dissipates somewhat but maintains a nice one to two finger head.

Aroma has notes of clove, citrus - mostly a light orange aroma, a hint of spice and lots of wheat.

Taste has notes of wheat, clove and citrus with some pepper and bready malt notes. This particular bottle is old and there are certain oxidation/cardboard notes that aren't great, but I am not going to dock the beer for them since I knew this was an old bottle going in.

Feel is light to medium bodied, but very drinkable. Vibrant vivacious carbonation.

Overall a nice Hefe - I'd love to find this fresher but even past its prime it was quite good.

A grainy malty beer with spices at the end, spices with a body to them. Slight hoppy coriander.

Taste rating in words: A meal where you have a great thing going, you just add a little pepper and it makes it perfect.

Pours hazy, gold in color with one inch head. Taste is big white bread and green apple. Light bodied, high carbonation, and sweet. Above average and will get again, but I prefer others in the style.

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

Beautiful peachy orange body. Cloudy and vibrant. Pillowy, soapy, rocky 3 finger head dissipates slowly leaving a thin cap and ring.
Wheaty aroma with cooked green apples and faint clove.
Slight wheat and grain taste with some green apple sourness and touch of lemon zest and clove in the finish. Notes of honey hear and there, along with some yeasty bread.
Medium body and medium high carbonation. Smooth mouth feel and very clean.

Beer pours a cloudy deep yellow almost orange color with a large white head. The smell has citrus notes and clove. The flavor is slightly sweet citrus crisp and clean but a little more carbonated than I prefer. Overall not as good as Celebrator but still a darn good beer.

3.79/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Hazy yellow-gold, huge head.

Smell: Apple pie, then sweet with cloves.

Taste: Lemony, bready, a little spicy. Kind of a sour note.

Overall: Beer #3 from the sampler. All the beers were over 12 months old, I'm reviewing anyway as 95% of the German imports here are at least that old. This one is the first that the age may have gotten the better of it. Smelled great, tasted like their standard hefe but with a sour note.

Pours a giant white, spongy head with a murky amber color to it.

Smells of an interesting mix, featuring ripe banana, dried leaves and a spicy clove note. Dough bread underneath with a whiff of tart sourness to it.

Every ingredient in this aims for the most possible refreshment and is perfectly in tune with the other flavors. Amped up by a vivid, soft carbonation, a pleasant complexity shines through at all times, providing a smooth mouthfeel.

Tastes of dried citrus peel, grass, white bread and a gentle yeast softness, which ties everything in this together. A stony mineral quality comes up after the swallow, accompanied by sugared yeast dough, transforming into wheat, wild honey and well water.

Very clean on the tongue, truly refreshing and well balanced. An easy drinkery which is perfect for the warmer days, being able to produce a depth of flavors within its yeast softness which makes this truly great.
