Draught, half way up the Alps on a sunny day. Crisp brown with a full head. Aroma is spicy wheat. Flavour is sweet cloves and banana, fruity and a little malt on the finish. Fits the view and the weather perfectly.

Translucent, ruddy brownish-copper pour, good for the style. Sweet aroma, some tropical fruits. Sweet taste, pretty darn good I think, finishes relatively clean with a nice mildly bitter aftertaste. Relatively high carbonation. Big taste overall but I think there are a few better (like franziskaner)...not as crazy about this style as I used to be.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Bitter in Vancouver. A very dark amber beer with a bit of head. Sweet caramel and fruit nose. In the mouth it is quite delectably sweet, fruity and malted. Very low bitterness, natch. Sweet lingering finish. 3.6.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at the Bedford-Bamberg Beer Festival 2014. Orange-brown and cloudy as hell. Traditional Hefeweizen banana/clove scent, but so much more: notes of sour citrus, bitter chocolate and malt are also detectable. The taste doesn’t live up to the aroma, with a sweet rush if banana-flavoured candy and a short finish. Still, and honest beer, true to its style, and overall a lovely experience.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a cloudy orangish brown with foamy off-white head. Smells of hefe yeast with notes of clove and some dark fruit. A bit of breadiness as well. Tastes like it smells, it not as balanced (more bready). Average on the palate. Not bad, but smells better than it tastes.
