3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Recent bottle. Pours big head on lighter yellow body. Aroma is pure bannana, good thick mouthfeel, and bannana in the taste. More like a hefeweizen. Drinkability was good. I was looking for more of an edge and complexity I love so much in weizenbocks. This was full, just the bannana overode the taste department.
