3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Smells more or less like an ordinary hefeweizen from the middle shelf. No significant bock aromas to be found. It’s sharpish, spice-oriented, though banana is also present, besides notes of clove and nutmeg, and even some cinnamon. The malty base is there though overall the beer lacks any serius flavour, it’s slightly vapid, tame and boring. Also, overcarbonated. Some spiciness in the slightly too bitter finish is all that I felt while drinking it. For a hefeweizen on steroids it’s a bit disappointing, though still not bad.
