3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.5 l bottle from biernavigatie, bottled in July 2015. Hazy, golden orange with a huge, creamy, almost stable, tan head. Faint, yeasty-spicy aroma of banana, nuts and vanilla. Sweetish, yeasty-spicy taste of banana, vanilla, honeydew and some clove, followed by a short, slightly sourish and yeasty-chalky finish. Medium to full body, rather creamy mouthfeel, average carbonation. Very well-balanced, rather spicy and really creamy. Simple but delicious and convincing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light haze, orange colored, fizzy beige head. Sweet & spicy, bananas & cloves...phenols. Interesting with a slight tartness up front of the malty, fruity sweetness. Plenty of spice, allspice, cloves, nutmeg, sweet but not overly cloying. The tartness is......yeasty. A bit over carbonated for my palate.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Color is half way between a Hefeweizen and a Dunkelweizen, dark amber color with medium white head. Aroma has intense notes of overriped banana, cloves, caramel and bubblegum. Taste follows the aroma, very sweet, with banana, spices, sweet sugar and yeast. Really nice.
