3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rather dull looking golden pour with ugly brown sediments leaving the bottom of the bottle and floating around the glass whose head fades a away very rapidly for a weizen, especially one that gushed a little. Appealing nose more on the spicy - pepper, clove, gently medicinal smokeyness - phenolic side than straight up esters. Still has a gentle banana kick with pear-like allusions, but if there is a dominating fruit flavour to me, it is lime. Fresh and lively lime, lightening up the relatively round and rough-edged wheat. Cerealic, the wheat lasts for a significant time after swallowing, its carbonation level is perhaps below average, accentuating its malty side, but its tart yeast profile provides all the refreshment that would usually come from carbonic acid.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy straw-colour with a white head that disappears a bit too fast. Breadlike aroma of of yeast, together with coriander and spruce. Aroma are wheat, spruce and something I can’t name.. cookies maybe? very bitter finish for a hefe-weiss. Way overcarbonated in my opinion. Would be a really good beer with some less carbonation and a bit lower bitterness in the finish. I enjoy drinking it to be honest, but it could be improved.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: poured a cloudy slightly dirty golden color ale with a super large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of banana ester is quite strong with some light wheat malt notes and light cloves as well. Taste is a nice mix between some banana ester with light wheat malt and some subtle cloves notes. Body is a bit too light for style with great carbonation. I really enjoyed the ester but the body and malt backbone was too light and seems to miss a bit of the yeasty finish that I usually enjoy in this style.
