3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Yellow body, hazy, with a large white head; very clovey nose, but with both yeast clay like notes and banana as well and with a balance you rarely see; to innocent a body, very balanced but far from deep enough; Very long aroma though, both fell and aroma wise, and lots of aroma that actually lasts forever. Another excellent beer from the island!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bought @ brewery.
golden color with light haze, white head.
aroma, grainy/wheat, yeasty in the Hefe style, light notes of banana, faint cloying.
flavors, yeasty and some esters giving this beer a very banana like profile.
Given the history of the brewery and the German yeast strain, there is no doubt that all their beers have a Hefe style despite the various names given to the beers.
The biological malts don’t change much to the core version. Med-high carbonation, wheat/grainy palate, floral notes and no wit-Belgian elements that would make this one a Belgian wit as the name might suggest.
