3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light wheat malts on the nose, big banana clove aromas, but delicate. Hazy light amber color, big frothy head. Light malty backbone balanced by the spicy flavors, no hop aroma or flavor, no real bitterness to speak of, light and crisp. Lively carbonation, light body, easy drinking, but nice subtle complexities. This beer would stand up to the better German versions any day!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very light, bright beer. Initially the yeast comes through hard, but that fades into a banana-like character from the wheat. Very good.
