1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle shared with McTapps. Way to sweet weizen with almost no carbo. Tough to drink with just a bit aroma of bananas. Bad, bad beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
So now I had all beers from Biergarten, because even the retired ones were still available in our local bottle shop. But the bad news is, that I didn’t really, really like one of them. (Former Moritz Fiege-swingtop bottle shared with MichaelBruch.) Milky pale yellow in colour, low head. Thin body. Nose of light yeast. Taste of light yeast, mild citrus fruits, cloves and green bananas. It is a very defensive beer and doesn’t really stay in mind.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Almost clear. begetable and yeast in the aroma. Mandarin and a touch of banana in the flavor is almost totally overshadowed by a strong yeast character, but the fruit returns in the aftertaste. Not well balanced and disappointing.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(bottle) Almost clear and only slightly hazy golden colour with a medium-sized, diminishing foamy white head. Medium-sweet, slightly yeasty malty aroma with ripe oranges and bananas. A dense sweet maltiness, fruity notes and a soft clovy spice combine with a restrained hoppines. Okay.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Not so cloudy orange. Initially big, but diminishing. Quite spicy aroma with hints of vegetables. Spicy, cloves taste with hints of vegetables. A tad watery. Not very good.
