4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 1 pint 0.9oz bottle into a Weizen Glass. The abv is listed on the label at 5.3% and there is no freshness date.
Appearance: It has a deep hazy orange amber body with visible carbonation. A quick pour fills the glass with foam. After a minute to settle I very slowly finished pouring and ended up with a nice three finger head. The light beige head hangs on well and makes lots of cool lace patterns on the glass.
Smell: Big German yeast notes rush up to fill my nose. The aroma is all about the classic banana notes with some mild clove and bready sweet malt.
Taste: The best way to describe this beer is that is like banana bread with nuts and chocolate chips. The palate is a firm medium body with nice active carbonation.
Notes: Outstanding!!! This beer is a work of wheat beer art.

500ml bottle into mug. Minneapolis. Part of a three part dunkel tasting
Pours dark amber, cloudy, light tan head. Some sediment. Really pretty.
Aroma is toffee, toasty, plum, yeast, grains. Really nice.
Taste is mostly on the sweet side. Less so than Ayinger. Nicely balanced.
Body is medium. Carbonation is a little more lively, slightly sharp. Finish is medium length.
Overall, I really appreciate the yeasty nature of this beer.

Strong aroma of ripe banana and bread with coriander spice. Banana bread.
Pours a hazy dark Amber color with lasting creamy white head
A bit oxidized in flavor. Still getting bread and banana with subtle yeast spiciness.
Medium bodied with high CO2, dry with lingering yeasty finish.
Other excellent beer from this brewery. If only I could get it fresh.

Extremely foamy. Dark cloudy brown and orange. Wheat and old banana aroma. Fairly sweet and lightly acidic with banana nut bread and cloves. Flavor is more complex but difficult to describe. Medium bodied with oily texture.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice murky brown with a big white head and soft carbonation. It has malt sweetness and some caramel. The flavor is bready malts, overripe bananas, spices, burned malts and yeast. I like it. I prefer the Vitus but this one is very good as well.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer pours an opaque chestnut color with a large, pillowy ivory head that fades slowly. The aroma has a nice fusion of heavy banana and wheat with light clove and nuttiness; the taste is mildly sweet and a touch bitter with an aftertaste that is sweet banana with lightly roasted peanuts. The palate has a medium-full body, soft carbonation, and a thick texture.
