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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5 l bottle from Firma Bier, best before 14/1/2016. Hazy, dark golden orange with a huge, creamy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Yeasty-spicy, slightly fruity aroma of ripe banana, nuts, cloves, some caramel. Sweetish, yeasty-spicy taste of ripe banana, caramel nuts and some clove, followed by a short, yeasty, slightly sourish and gently bitter finish. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, soft to average carbonation. Apart from the ugly yeast flocs a very round beer, highly quaffable. Good.

Drank from a nonic glass poured from a 500ml bottle. Pours a nice magohany, brown, hazy color with tons of fluffy white head. Has wonderful aromas of malts with a hint of banannas you get from the Hefeweizens. Wonderfully complex beer, sweet, and delicious!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours orange-brown & cloudy with a thick off white head. Aroma is sweet & estery with banana-clove and spices. Taste is heavy banana-clovey magnificence and very very smooth. There’s some faint prickly bitterness laced with spice in the mid that smooths out again at the finish. Rich and decadent overall. Nice.
