3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy caramel/amber color with a medium white head that lasts and laces the glass nicely. Aroma is wheaty, mildly sweet. Flavor too is wheaty with mild fruity/banana tones, mild sweetness and leaves palate cleanly (a little too watery ending).

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle. Hazy caramel pour with a medium white head. Nose is wheaty and spicy, much like it’s yellow Hefe-Weisse brother. In fact, aside from a very light toastiness, it IS it’s brother. Good, but not great.

Bottle 500ml from Citymarkt Kaufhof in Stuttgart. Hazy dark brown body under a medium lasting off-white head. Sweet fruity aroma. Flavour of clove and banana. Watery mouthfeel and a bit too sweet for my taste (24.04.2006).

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From Bottle. Pour of grayish brown mud with a thin layer of white head. Aroma of bananas dipped in molasses. Some vinous red grape qualites are also present in the bouquet. Mouthfeel is actually a bit more sharp than expected, with relatively thin and bland flavors. Some toasted wheat bread makes a banana sandwich. Final smack of green, under-ripe prune.
