Cloudy straw a big billowy head. A little sweaty yeast character, balancing wheaty tartness. For a non-German wheat it has character and style, if a little unorthodox.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy light hay-colored beer with a white head that recedes to "soap lines." A sour aroma with banana and a citrus/lemon hint in the background. The taste is fairly sweet with very little bitterness. Light bodied, thin texture. Fairly fizzy.
Overall, a refreshing light beer.

(Plastic bottle 100 cl) Hazy golden with a creamy, white head leaving some lacework. Aroma of yeast and cloves. Medium body with a soft carbonation, yeast, banana and clove aromas with plenty of phenols. A sweetish and far from outstanding Hefe. 100508

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale cloudy yelllow, with a decent head. Lovely, strong banana and cloves aroma with a touch of tarty lemon. A little bland on tasting, but it proved to be a good quaffer. Not too much in terms of body, but a decent hefe.

From memory, this was easily the best of the African beers at the Sydney Xmas ding-dong. A surfeit of crap Australian wheat beers has rather turned me off these styles, but this was a classic German hefe by any measure. Cloudy lemon colour, short head. Typical hefe nose of wheat yeast and bananas.
Very refreshing, a little tart, with the usual bananas and cloves. (Bottle, Sydney RateBeer Xmas gathering 2005)
