culchiem (3104) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 24, 2014
Draught at the brewpub.Cloudy orange amber with a medium head. Aroma is hard to place, kinda fruity wheat. Flavour is toasty bitter, there is wheat in there without the fruityness. The brewer said it is meant to sit between Schneider Hopfenwisse and Aventinus, not sure what that really means but an unusual weisse. Also he mentioned it is 5.52%, which is fairly specific.,

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 9, 2013
The head is good, the body brown and cloudy. It smells less malty, bitter, fruity, hoppy, aromatic. The taste is hoppy, intensive bitter, a bit fruity. Interesting and tasty. Great, but I would prefer a little less bitterness and more fruityness in this beer. 12/12/12/12/-/13

garthicus (2813) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 2, 2013
On tap at Bull & Castle. Appearance: rusty hazy red, proud thick white head. Aroma: wheat, ripe banana, sweet malt, some mild smoke and a hint of red berries. Flavour: smokey malt, red berries, yeasty with banana and quite a hit of hops, quite a long bitter finish.

Creedence (286) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 2, 2013
Draught at Franciscan Well. Pours a murky golden brown with thin lasting white head. Strong aroma of cloves, cinnamon, banana. Taste is medium buttery sweetness followed by strange sickly bitterness. Touches of caramel, banana, orange, chili, cloves. Dry bitter finish. Though a very complex and tasty beer, I found it rendered itself hard-to-drink from its astringent bitterness (and this is coming from a high-IBU IPA lover). Nice for a change but I couldn’t drink it all day.

Beermack (725) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 22, 2013
Keg dispense at the Bull and Castle, Dublin. Murky brown pour with thin but lasting white head. Aroma is big on the banana, clove, doughy yeast notes, and a touch of citrus. The taste follows suit with a dose of banana/clove and butterscotch which transforms into quite an assertive citrus and pine bitter hop bite in the finish. Medium to full mouthfeel. Pretty impressed with this: a hoppy Weizen at a sessionable ABV - lovely.
