3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to tulip
Despite being extremely careful, this bottle exploded. I lost a bit down the sink, but I was prepared with a glass. Because of this and the yeast, the appearance is going to take a hit.
Aroma of candy, chlorophyll, rotten apple, plum, banana, wheat, and yeast. Appearance is a orangey brown sludge, with tons of effervescence, some large particulates and a 3 cm frothy off white head. Taste is pine sap, pepper, wheat and plum.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle. Barely clear, deep golden colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Unspecific fruity, wheaty, minimally herbal and floral, yeasty aroma. Taste is slightly sweet wheaty, fruity, hints of apple and pear, herbal, floral and citrusy hoppy overtones, a mixture of lime, lemon and green tea; light and minimally watery. More a spiced Kristallweizen than a Hefeweizen.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
75 cl bottle (4,5%) @ PBF VIII, BBE 04/2013
Aroma has citrus notes, some yeast and slight banana esthers. Flavour is rather tart with cardboard notes, some tart citrus, wet paper, herbal and spicy notes. Finishes with harsh bitterness. Palate is slightly too high on CO2. Not sure what is the tea here, the herbs and spices? Not bad when considering the BBE date.
