Hazy yellow with thin head. Aroma and flavour have a light sweetness and some floral notes. The balance is good though. It stays quite fresh on the palate.

Can, 330ml. Pours medium pale amber with a thin white head subsiding at average pace. Scent is dense cloves and weizen yeast including full bodied banana and caramel. Taste is medium light weizen with cloves and pepper. Tiny bit of sourness. Mouth feels medium dense but not creamy. Finish is clean. Good.
