Supple, malty and mellow. Its harmonious flavour is the great strength of our dark wheat beer.

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.

Praktycznie bez goryczki, wyczuwalna pszenica, banany, lekkie biszkopty. Mętne z drobinami osadu, piana kremowa, przyzwoita, w smaku pełne. Ogólnie zgadzam się z człowiekwiadro :D

A solid choice of beer, nothing off, just a nice and pleasent beer, but lacking the truly spectaculaire. Nice maltiness and ripe banana aromas.

Banana! Cloves and malty. Nice off white head and very nice mouthfeel. One of my all time favourite Weissbiers.

Bottled from Booths Penrith. Pleasant sweet clove and banana aroma and taste. Pours a nice looking hazy dark amber colour, has a great malt and biscuit palate, with fruit and soft warming gingery notes and faint aniseed. Finish is fruit cake and yeast, fine bready notes.

Bottle from Booth’s in Ripon. Pours murky brown with some off-white froth. Starts quite sharp before malt notes with brown sugar, citrus, banana and cinnamon. Nice

przyjemny zapach, goździki, lekki banan i guma balonowa, kwiaty. kolor wody z kałuży, poważnie zmętniony, z kawałkami zbitego osadu, piana kremowa, dość przyzwoita. w smaku pełny, słodki, kwaskowy, praktycznie bez goryczki, wyczuwalna pszenica, banany, lekkie biszkopty. pozostawia dość kwaśne uczucie w ustach.
