4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2013 Last beer of a long night, so who knows. Cloudy golden amber colour. Aroma extremely fruity. Grapefruit banana, tropical fruit and more fruits I have no idea about. Lots of banana and fruit with nice citrus element. Maybe a bit of sourness too. So much going on, and totally lovely. Would love to try this again. Tried it again Nov 2013. Still liked it a lot and thought the same things.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2011 Draught at Q-Brick. 2011 version. Aroma of lemon, even more orange, Wheat, banana, peach. Cloudy, yellow-orange-brown. Smooth, helles weizenbock-like taste. Banana, honey, melon, pineapple, lemon, cookies. Thick and rich with grat smooth body. The citrus hops work. Nicely bitter finish, no alcohol felt. Nice and interesting—fabulously complex and very drinkable, like a Schneider Hopfen, maybe better. Wonder beer.
