Pale yellow colour, more like a wit than a hefe. Sweet marshmallow aroma, some coriander, faint banana and apple. Flavour is fairly dry, with a watery palate. Light candyish flavour, some wheaty spice. Thanks Josh.

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.
