rarbring (1427) - Linköping, SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2012
Aroma: The smell is spicy, coriander, clove etc, citric aromas and quite a lot of yeast giving a bit of a closet feeling.
Appearance: The beer is rather deep golden with a brown tone, a white firm head leaving good lacing.
Taste: The sweetness is in the syrup area, citric nuances from oranges and lemons, the spices mentioned and some lemon and grape-fruit zest.
Palate: Medium high carbonation, lots of small soft bubbles. Smooth
Overall: A rather good wheat beer, possibly a bit sweet.
Note: Bottle, relabeled as "Somerfield Best Ever… Bavarian Wheat Beer". Earl’s Court, London. Reviewed 2010-07-25.

pivoveskotsku (201) - SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2012
Pale, hazy yellow colour. Aroma of banana and bubblegum. Taste is slighty grainy, more banana and more bubblegum. Not bad and fairly refreshing. From the bottle bought at Aldi.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2012 Typical citrus/clove/banana aroma, a little detergenty. A tart citrus note dominates the taste. Refreshing finish. Not bad.

Bottle from Waitrose. Pours a hazy gold colour with a good sized head, plenty of wheat and spices in the aroma, the taste is soft wheat with short dry finish.

StueyD (1175) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2012
Cloudy amber orange coloured beer with a thick white head. A little spicy aroma, typical of the style, clove and cinnamon, with a background smokiness. Then the expected tropical fruit element comes through, banana and pineapple. Fizzy mouthfeel. A dry biscuity taste to start, which compliments the spice flavours of clove and cinnamon. The fruit flavours come through with a sweet and sour balance of banana and pineapple with sourness of grapefruit and lemon. The finish is a little short and lacking body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tim Webb (229) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2012
500 ml bottle in Straubing, Bavaria. Disappointingly simple, a bit thin, no great presence of banana, clove or anything else for that matter. Thirst quenching in a way that made it unnecessary to have another.
