I thought this carried a surprising amount of palate weight despite the relatively modest 5.5%. Plenty of spice and aniseed wrapped up in a thick flavour profile. Finish is really quite bitter and almost tangy.

500ml bottle. Pours a clear medium gold, with a small, loose white head, which fades rapidly and leaves no lace. The aroma is pretty stock-standard weizen - estery banana and some cloves. To taste it is a little sour initially, moving into a sweet and slightly bland body. The finish is a little cloying, but with some pleasant musk notes to redeem it. This is a fairly average weizen, nothing more.

Surprisingly dark in color, almost amber with a quickly vanishing off-white head. Citrus-like aroma with notes of orange, lemon and peach and ripe banana and a little seasoning. Semi-sweet malt base, but dry and wheaty finish. Lively carbonation. It’s odd that the name of the beer is German, as it tastes and smells almost Belgian, with a funky norwegian twist. I quite like it.

Tap at Amundsen. Orange hazy, thick white head. Smells of citrus, banana and yeasts. Body is maybe a bit too malty but has good sweetness/acid balance. Finish is not very hoppy. A good weizen that also will work as a good thirst killer

Erfrischend fruchtiger Antrunk mit spritzuger Gefe. Vollmundig, die Bananigkeit ist angenehm herb. Später dezent bitter, weiter vollmundig und ausgewogen. Gut! 10/11/12/11//11
