3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Fruity yeasty aroma with vinous sour notes of dried fruits as well as bananas and cloves. Slight musty-smoke notes in the nose as well. A delight to smell. Murky brownish color with ruby tints and a fine bubbly khaki colored head (does not look like beer in photo). Astringent sourness to start, turning into an interesting middle and finish. Roasted smoked notes turning sweet like molasses, then finishing with chocolate malts. Mildly dry finish. Astringency is a bit much to start. Decent stuff.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Creamy and adherent foam. Much persistent one. Dark and intense color, cleaned up, not torbid brown. Intense scent you Weisse but at the same time much bitter. Strongly and with a body of good structure.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Caramel coloured with massive white head. Aroma distinctly of bananas and slight sourness. Tasted quite mild, a little hint of apples, oddly. Overall a nice enough hefe, perhaps a little light on in the flavour department, the addition of roast malt has not imparted much of the characteristic cara/choc/toff/coffee.

ahhhh. Now I get it. The menu at MacGreggors called this a Dunkel. So I was wondering why it tasted so wheaty. It was pretty good, but I was dissapointed cause I was really looking for a nice malty Dunkel. Still decent though.

One of my flavorite morning beers. Yeasty aroma, lite on clove and bannana. Hazy and very lively in the glass. Slight sourness and caramel taste. Full and creamy. Fits the profile of this style.

Pours hazy brown-dark amber. Thick fluffy head. Good wheat-malt aroma. Hints of banana in aftertaste. Playing favorites might be reflected in my score. But still an all-time favorite.
