3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2015 Alluring aroma with very sweet/spicy (cinnamon) flavour. Probably lacking the subtlety of its European contemporaries - but subtlety is sometimes overrated (in my book).

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
The numbers given to this beer probably seem a little like I’m damning it with faint praise, but believe me, this beer has been brewed beautifully well and sits wonderfully well within its style. My rating probably reflects my appreciation of the style rather than the technical excellence of the beer.
The body was thinnish with a muted white head that became voluminous and puffy when agitated. The aroma was strongly of banana and masses of tropical fruit and this was reflected in the flavour along with juicy sweetness. A pleasant brew this one.

The head is ok, the body blond. It smells sweet, yeasty, malty. The taste is malty, yeasty, refreshing. Ok for a German Hefeweizen! 11/12/10/10/-/10
