3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ausgewogen hefig-süßlicher Antrunk mit herbem Bananenton. Im Mittelteil vollmundiger, die Hefigkeit versucht sich in einer Steigerung, wird aber von der schnell wachsenden Herbe gestoppt. Der Bananenton scheint daran zu kleben, entwickelt sich aber nicht weiter und bliebt auf niedriger Intensität, die nun unterzugehen droht. Im Abgang ist die weiche Herbe deutlich führend, das Bier ist hier aber wieter spritzig durch die weiter vertretene Hefigkeit. Nettes Weizen! 13/11/11/11/12/11

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark orange with brown tones, hazy, big big white head. Smells of citrus, wheat malts, yeast and hints of banana. Taste is quite sweet and malty with more banana than in the aroma. Also some citrus acids in there. Very refreshing too. Finish is kind of bitter. Not much, but more than the normal german weiss.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5l bottle. Pours a hazy murky orange body with lots of big white floaters and a gigantic everlasting fluffy and off-white head. Dang that’s some solid sediments! Almost looks like someone has gone bananas and put lots of big breadcrumbs in the bottle. Aroma is somewhat low, but nice with notes of ripe banana, sweet caramel and dark malts. Medium bodied, oily texture and carbonation is soft to medium. Nice and malty - almost like a dunkel with notes of cloves. Ends with a light acidic finish and is leaving a solid malty and bready aftertaste. Nice, but more like a dunkel if you ask me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Home 20110508 (50 cl bottle): Cloudy beer with a yellow/orange-like colur and a big white head. Aroma: malty/wheat; some fruit (banana, apple); slightly yeast and a little spicy (looks-like coriander). Taste: slightly sweet, wheat, nice fruity (banana, esters) and a little bitter. Good lively carbonation for a weiss beer. In the aftertaste still some sweetness (slightly sticky) and a nice bitterness. A good combination of sweet, bitter and fruitness.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cloudy orange/straw colored pour. Big white head that subsides fairly quickly and leave little to no lacing behind. There is a not-quite-ripe banana aroma to this one, or rotten fruit smell. But it is certainly not the banana that is typical in a decent hefe. But this is an urweisse. A slight aroma of bread as well. Yeast makes its way in there. The taste is almost as similar. It has a nutty, fruity, banana taste. Really quite unique in that I have never experienced this flavor in a regular weisse beer. Especially not hefe. The mouthfeel is the most lacking in this beer. It starts with a bite on the tip of the tongue from the carbonation. From there it lays down a marginal amount of sweetness over the rest of the taste muscle. But there is a huge bitterness in the back that gets very annoying.

1 May 2011, bottle. orange yellow, hazy, some sediment and a frothy white head. nose is a yeasty wheat beer; faint banana, perhaps some coriander, but i think the yeast is dominant with a kind of mix b/t yeast and bananas. med body yet crisp and refreshing. moderately fizzy. taste has much more banana but not as much as some. there is a faint spiciness as well.
