4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
RBsydneyXMASG ’05 - in a way this was my favourite of the night, even though we had a ton of big fat beers that can obscure the simple pleasures of a good hefe. big banana aroma, creamy, grainy, bready in the mouth, with a delicious touch of acidity in the finish. really well made, authentically bavarian tasting stuff. thanks per!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught in Glenfair, Pretoria.
Hazy yellow rich lively head. Estery banana aroma. Medium dry with crisp soft mouthfeel. Refreshing and well balanced - the estery yeast character is kept under control by the somewhat bready maltiness. A class act!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2006 Straw yellow, cloudy with large white head. Good head retention. Aroma of light bread and grain malt, yeasty dough, banana and light clove. Light malt flavour somewhat acidic with hints of banana and cloves. Very light hop bitterness. Finish is fresh , lightly acidic with just a hint of bitterness. Light body, watery texture and lively carbonation. A very good hefeweizen , maybe not quite as good as ol’ Franzy (Franziskaner Hefe Weissbier) but easly beats Erdinger.
