It pours translucent murky copper with golden highlights; the head is off-white and mousse-like. The aroma has notes of: banana, bubblegum, and sourdough.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cloudy to the point of opaque golen-tinted yellow body with a huge creamy off-white head which disentegrated immediately. Huge banana-bread notes, some banana hard candy aroma as well. Some clove is obviously in the mix with some cinnamon. Yeast dominated, obviously. The texture is so smooth and creamy the high carbonation mixes well and doesn’t seem over-bearing. Getting some white-pepper, orange flesh, lemon flesh, and coriander later on in the glass. Amazing alcohol integration. Co-worker at the brewery reccomended this and I owe him quite a thank you. Quite full-bodied, amazing, but wish it was a 330ml.

C’est une de mes bières favorites. Elle a un petit goût de banane qui n’est pas écoeurant. Je trouve que la sensation en bouche est grandiose. De plus, on peut la boire tranquillement à Münich au restaurant Ayinger, plus au moins en face de la HB.
