Bottled. Cloudy golden, rich head. Sweaty papery banana aroma. Sweet and unfirm. medium, bofied with loads of cardboard and sugar. Papery finish. Another reason not to buy anything on Lidl, or indeed anything where Oetker group is involved.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
5L keg from Lidl. Muddy orange with a fine persisting white lid. Aroma of shortbread, banana, toffee apple, peppery hints. A bit stale and papery with watery esters, grainy cardboard stillness, banana and grassy hop hints. Grass and cardboard afters. Fairly poor industrial hefe, past its best, but drinkable.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2009 From plastic bottle at a tasting, thanks zvikar. Murky orange with a small but stable head. Strong overpowering yeasty aroma with some mushrooms, quite dry with stale bread and a touch of orange and some sweetness creeping in the back. Bad skunky aftertaste. A bad weizen with nearly no classic weizen attributes.

PET bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks zvikar. Cloudy orange with a medium white head. Aroma of fruity esters (lots of banana), a bit of yeast and a bit of spiciness. Sweetish-sourish flavor with some phenols and fruits. Light-bodied. So-so.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can from Lidl. Hazy yellow-grey with a large white head. Yeast aroma. Taste has clove, ash, a little sourness and soluble aspirin. Fizzy. Slight dry finish. Last time I rated a Grafenwalder beer I mentioned I had just been mowing the grass. Same again this time. It was reasonably successful in quenching my thirst.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
50 cl can from Lidl. Murky yellow colour, white head which lasts about a minute which fails to keep the aroma in the beer. Strong taste of yeast, very watery with little to no carbonation. It’s a strange one, once poured it looks like a filling beer but really goes down like a glass of flavored water.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
50cl Can from Lidl. Hazy yellow colour, white head. Aroma of banana’s, wort, some grain and wheat. Flavour is light sweet, banana, malts and wheat, some sharp grainy flavour in the finish, tastes a bit unfinished. Less than medium bodied. Meh.
