3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle mail order from brewery. Bright, cloudy golden, lasting medium white head, doughy/bready, spicy/peppery, some banana (not much), quite drinkable, good effort.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Opens with a loud pop. Pours a large sparce white head atop a golden body. Yeast deposit in bottle clouds an otherwise clear beer.
Mild aroma; bread dough and cereals, some bruised banana and stonefruit with a peppery spicy undertone.
Lively, somewhat bitey carbonation, medium-light body, bit of acidity and dryness develops on finish.
Flavour is a combination of bready malts, over-ripe bananas and tangy spice. Low bitterness, shortish finish.
Not bad. Question the freshness; bit stale on the finish.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours amber with a large, lasting head.
Nose shows doughy wheat and floral notes. Could use some clove of banana.... Reminds me of my own somewhat feeble attempt at a hefe.
Some wheat shows as a flavour, but not as much as I’d have hoped. Little else, just some faint spicy hops.
High carbonation works well.
Slightly disappointed after having read stews review. Not sure what the difference was, this was obtained from the brewery so should have been fresh.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very serviceable effort for such a small player. Lots of clean bubblegum and sweet banana on the nose, very pretty, but the palate is much more dry and sharp. Good bitterness of the aniseed kind and some underlying fruity sweetness. You’d be hard pressed to not like this.
