Cloudy amber color; high carbonation; medium-sized creamy head; from the speed at which it disappears, the liquid surface tension must be very low.
The aroma is mild, suspiciously sour; then, caramel and spices.
It tastes like a Dunkelweizen, with caramel, spices (cloves) and light banana; the body is quite weak, and the absence of bitterness makes it a bit sweet, even if there is not much residual sugar in this beer.
Surely not a straight Belgian-anything, and otherwise it’s a drinkable beer.

Bottled 50cl. Courtesy of Bov. A very free interpretation of the style. Fruity. Not bad at all. I enjoyed this beer and couldn’t find too many flaws. Thanks a lot Bov!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled, thanks Bov! Hazy amber, small head. Marzipan aroma. Sweet and soapy with clean mouthfeel and spritzy carbonation.Some caramel, plenty of marzipan and butter. Low bitterness. Feels a bit amateuristic, but not in a bad way.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2011 re-rated, courtesy of Andreas Brüllmann - cloudy dark ruby-brown colour with almost no foam left; malty and fresh nose with notes of red berries and sugar powder; medium-bodied and quite sweet; moderate carbonation and a slightly sticky palate; no bitterness; short and sweetish fruity finish - not bad at all
5/2010 from the online shop of the brewery - pours a cloudy reddish-amber colour with a little beige foam left; fair aroma of banana and candi sugar; notes of apples and cinnamon; overcarbonated and very sweet, medium malt backbone, fizzy aftertaste of matured banana with some residual sugars and hints of spices - hmmm ... a reasonable carbonation could do the job (4/6/4/2/7)
