Nice tight head that lasts. Colour that reminds of an aged tawny port. Aroma is full, with nice malty notes, clove and a bit of banana. Medium length on the tongue, with a mid palate finish and a refreshing length at the end. The flavour is a bit watered down, but hints at greatness if given fuller extraction. Quite nice.

Huge head that overflowed. Very yeasty and very cloudy I couldnít see through it at all and it was sitting for two weeks. It was watery in itís finish and didít have much of an impact on me.

Yeasty, spicy nose. Seems a bit watery at first, but malt thickens in the mouth nicely. Bitter and Sweet struggle amongst one another nicely. Loved the gentle fruit aromas and flavors.

Some fruit taste, but foremost was a strong synthetic plasticy/rubbery flavor that I didnít like. Sour aftertaste with an acetic apple taste throughout. I think they would have been better off leaving the malt out.

Pours dark and cloudy with a large head. Smells of fruit and cloves. Darker fruit tastes stand out most in this one.

Murky bamboo color with a huge and creamu amber head. Bubbles stream like a jet to the surface and do a magnificent job maintaining the head. Strong aromas of banana taffy. Flavors of banana and toffee are surrounded by a mouthfeel of burnt toast. Quite an enjoyable ídarkishí wheat.

Yow. So good. By far the best wheat beer Iíve had. Intense flavor, with lots or fruit, clove, a bit of spice, mild german hops, and a bit of roasted malt. Lots of flavors to pick out. Dark color with a beautiful thick head. Very smooth, very satisfying, I could live with drinking only this for the rest of my life, if I had to.

An intense rocky white head, like the snow capped peaks of the Bavarian Alps, only thicker. Banana, passion fruit, and peach aroma. Smooth palate, not too spritzy. Burnt orange colour, sort of cloudy. Banana flavour with some light caramel. I highly reccomend.
