Cloudy tan colour. Sweeter and a little thciker than the Weizen, but these are only shades of difference. Otherwise, a clean, well-made but unexciting wheat.

Thanks to Islandhaole for this one. Pours hazy canary with big, white head. Aroma of huge banana, cloves, bubblegum, hopcit. Tastes weissy, with the same flavors as aromas. Smooth palate, nice balance, and wonderful complexity. Just outstanding. Shove some sushi in my mouth and call me Yoshi!

Thanks to IslandHaole for this gem. Cloudy light golden pour, small head. Crisp spicy yeast nose, some fruity esters, banana and sweet lemon. Slighty subdued wheat character, with yeast and light spice evening out. Very clean and refreshing, reletivaley dry finish. Great!
