Bottle, bought in SPAR Lermoos. Orange blonde, clear, pours an enormous head. Banana and clove in the aroma and lavor. Some citrus notes. Creamy mouthfeel, just a bit herbal in the aftertaste. OK.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A hazy golden colored beer, with a thick white head. It disappears quickly. The aroma of malt and a little fruity, citrus like. The taste of malt with some fruits prevailing citrus, with a little banana. A little bitter. The aftertaste is least bitter with almost nothing.

2.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Aroma of bun yeast, wet wood. Hazy, a bit gray and orange. Taste a bit disappointing, not much complexity. After swallowing it tastes like aspirin!

500ml bottle, shared by Tranquillity - thanks!
Hazy orange, lively tight head. Fairly non-descript light perfume aroma, but also wet leafy forest floor. Pleasant carbonation in the mouth, but also some slight hint of the salt or acid of soluble aspirins. Taste a bit disappointing, slightly creamy but generally a bit plain and bland. Worked well as an after-sauna beer though.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Great cloudy look, slightly odd smell. A mild taste, slight banana-like notes; indeed some metallic aftertaste, but it doesn’t spoil the fun of drinking this. A pretty good hefeweizen overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Peppery clove aroma with a bit estery yeast.
Orange-golden and clouded, huge creamy head with lace.
Solid bready body with plenty banana and clove flavors.
Cream and champagne mouthfeel.
A chalky-metallic aftertaste disturbs the picture a bit, otherwise a good well-crafted weisse .
