MoritzF (8562) - Bochum, GERMANY - JUL 30, 2007
2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(bottle) Hazy, light orange colour with a big and dense foamy white head. Moderately sweet, slightly fruity (banana) wheat-malty nose with a touch of vanilla and clovy spice. Sweet and slightly sour flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation, at least for a Hefeweizen. Soft grainy, moderately wheaty taste; rather slim, slightly wheaty and quite phenolic (cloves, vanilla), spicy finish. Who needs a Weizen in Franconia ? At a growing number of breweries one has to ask where the Weizens are actually brewed.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
New beer in this brewery tap on the beautiful Market Square. Bottle only. Hints of grape sugar and glue in the flavor. Thinnish with hints of banana, somewhat flowery, but no herbal character. Dry for a weizen, could use more body.
