3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught, München Airport T2, G, @ Kaefer Bistro. Around 17:30... but I was in the next day 00:30, Japanese time still. Good to have something else than Warsteiner Premium and saké after a 12 hour (though very pleasant) flight. Cloudy deep golden orange with a nice creamy big white head leaving a good lacing. Fruity sweet wheaty and yeasty pleasant aroma. Good filling mouthfeel. Fresh bit sweet wheaty fruity flavour with banana and a good soft bitterness. Well lasting fruity wheaty finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark golden color. Fruity aroma with some banana and citrus. Very sticky mouthfeel. Tastes similar as the aroma. Banana is now more in the background noticeble and in the aftertaste. A typical Weizen but for sure above average.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Brewpub 500 ml
Appearance: Amber orange-copper. Hazed with large snow cap and ornate lacing. 4+.
Nose: Strong traditional weizen aroma. Slightly drier than average sample. Citric, slightly tangy with sweeter caramel like centre. Aroma similarly to Flieger got rounder and fuller as it warmed up.
Flavor/Palate : Medium bodied wheat. Slightly strange with its ash like sweetness which presented not in bad way. Fairly soft as well lighter and not as complex as some. Kumuls was good , drinkable break while waiting few hours at airport. Great for relaxing …

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub in Germany. A cloudy golden form with nice white head. Banana and bubblegum aroma. Taste is Banana and yeast and a bit harsh for a Hefe. The freshness might have something to do with that. Palate is smooth with a slight sour ending. Very well made but lacking a bit for a superior score.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy orange with a white head. Aroma is classic wheat beer estery and mild banana fruity. Dry estery flavoured. Vague butterish note, I guess this it what happens if you get here for breakfast. Mild sweet and slight citric too. Ends smooth wheaty and fruity estery.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught (Munich Airport)
Cloudy orange, persistent bready head. Huge classic hefeweizen aroma - orange, a touch of butter. Carbonation pleasant, crisp palate. Retronasals wheaty and buttery in places. But it’s not an off butteriness - it’s delicious. Hops very restrained - only a hint in the finish. I’m a sucker for hefeweizens, and I liked this a lot, it was very fresh and tasty.

Much hazier than pictured. Spicerack clovey nose with pepper-sprinkled banana. Estery fruit and spice balanced with biscuit. Orange, lemon and banana squash dosed with pepper. Lingering dunked digestive. Almost zesty, orange rind-like fruit. Very nicely rounded weiss, danke.
