3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ brewpub. Estery aroma - like getting kicked on the nose by a boot made of overripe bananas. Slightly acidic with a creamy white head. Has a lot more character than most other German hefeweizens. Lovely!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap, at the brewpub. Hazy lemon yellow, good lasting white head and moderate condition. Initial caramel aroma giving way to banana esters and yeast. Caramel maltiness returns in the mouth with some gentle fruity banana notes. Finish is chalky and yeastily sweet.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught. Head is white, fully lasting. Body is hazy dark yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain/bread), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of clove, banana, coriander, and orange. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Odd one, this...almost like a cross between German weiss and Belgian wit...seems spiced, but I didn’t ask. Had in November 2003 at the brewpub.
