3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very carbonated hazy golden beer, with both orange and greenish highlights; good dense & creamy off-white head. Cloves, some banana & citrus. Coriander-y without it being it really. Fruit (banana/citrus) aromas get more intense warming up, getting more and more fusels-filled. Dry-bitterish taste, quite some fusels. Less fruity than the nose suggests. Spices, cloves but also root-spices. Fusels and esters (not very fruity ones) again, even something fishy. Carbonation makes it nearly Champenoise , but it is quite dry at the same time. Wheat slickness. A bit better than average Weisse. Not overly ideomatic.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2005 Brewery tap, Würgau. Almost clear. Sweetish flavor with banana and just a soft floweriness. Not world shocking but thirst quenching and pleasurable.
Bottle: orange and chewing gum in the aroma. Herbal flavor with a hint of cinnamon and mandarin. Prickly mouthfeel. Thinnish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle conditioned, bought at Fabeers in York. Cloudy lemon gold, thick fluffy white longlasting head and moderate condition. Plenty of banana and esters in the nose but with little to balance it, faint suggestion of smoke develops. Full bodied in the mouth with notes of honey, yeast and bananas and a distant fruity raspberry note. Ester and yeast in the finish with some powderiness. Middle of the road weissbier.

Cloves dominate aroma.
Murky yellow, lowish creamy head.
Peppery clove and hayish flavors - not too exiting.
Medium to light body.
