3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Wonderful glowing gold liquid, but its frothy white head was not to last, which was disappointing. Scent is very mild and underplayed, but typical to the style once it emerges. Sweet banana and grain flavour, with a dose of citrus. Hmmph...I found the carbonation more aggressive than other reviewers, and a bit off-putting. Maybe just my bottle? Compared to other hefes I’ve tried this beer seems to be a little subpar in every category.

Tried to find fruit in this, but all I found was bready notes. And, I think, a big ham that had been studded with a few cloves, roasted and ultimately burnt. Good thing I’m not a vegetarian! A little spice, but only at white pepper level. Bit more fruit in the mouth (dried banana? orange?) – but still a tight, grain-y flavour. Good level of creaminess, and nice that it’s not a banana-clone (don’t think it really shouted at me ‘banana’, or the words ‘typical of the style’), but sorry to say that I found this too fusty/dusty. Maybe my bottle my was off or something.

Invitante, nez épicé. En bouche, on retrouve les mêmes arômes mais avec une finale légèrement aqueuse à mon goût.

Pour hazy golden color with nice and creamy white head. Smell is very pleasant, a bit grassy and fruity.
Body is between thin and medium with nice, creamy texture. Average carbonation for this style. Taste is mostly sweet with some sour notes towards the finish. Aroma is full and rich, wheat, grass, herbal and fruity. Nicely balanced and very, very smoothly.
Overall, excellent example of the style. Tasty and refreshing. Highly recommended!

Farbe: kräftiges ocker
Schaum: sämig und betändig.
Nase: hm kellerig, muffig. Bisschen Weizen. Wenn das glas leerer wird kommt mehr der typische Bananenhefe-Geruch durch.Geschmack: feinperlig. Abgang dann erdig, Nachgeschmack recht deutlich nach reifer Banane. Insgesamt: gut aber zu kellerig.
