Decidedly too much overhauled beer of frumento. Torbid, it remembers a lot vaguely the kapuziner beer

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2006 Poured a cloudy gold, with a very minimal head despite the fizz. Can’t find any of the typical banana or cloves in the aroma, just some yeast and hops and maybe some lemon. Also can’t find much about this beer to get excited for, but then again it is not a bad beer. Flavour is tolerably sweet, with some bitterness. Palate is average. Yep, average all round (4 3 7 2 11 - 2.7).
Re-rate: Sampling this again, my notes are somewhat different, but the end rating is the same. Mostly got citrus and toffee in the aroma with some banana on tasting, some acidic burn and salt in the flavour, and a palate high in carbonation that is biting on the tongue but gives a pleasant toffee finish.

Lovely hazy gold, with a typical frothy white head. Nose is rather lightly spiced...again typical. Good..er..um typical wheat beer, can’t fault it, but unexceptional. Vic Wine.

Bottle. Poured the nice cloudy yellow with a large white head. Looked very nice in my Paulaner weiss glass. The aroma was very faint of banana and spice. Flavor was also lacking, too watery. Too thin is a good way to put it. Middle of the road German hefe, certainly not at the top of its class.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5l poured into an Erdinger Weiss glass. Hazy yellow, thick white head. Mild clovey aroma with a hint of yeastiness. Fizzy pale malts with a hint of of cloves and hops. Refreshing and light, though lacking a bit in the pehnol department.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A good middle-of-the-pack summer hefe. Looked great: cloudy lemon curd colour with a 1.5cm mat of foam that lasted and laced well. Plenty of bananas’n’cream in a sweetish aroma, plus green apples. Missing much hop presence. Fairly fizzy in the mouth - bit overcarbonated for my taste. Medium bodied and smooth. At the milder end of the hefe flavour scale but very clean-tasting. Sweet and fruity, with classic banana notes.
