3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rich cloudy orange, brief head. Toffee aroma, fruity too. Pleasant carbonation. Very full wheaty taste, plenty of grains, and pleasant hops too. Crisp. Finish is a clean wheaty hoppiness, and the toffee’s there too. Quite standard weisse, but I do like the formula, this is a good example.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle bought at GBBF 08 and drunk at home. Hazy paleish gold with a rocky white head. Green apple and banana estery aroma. Some wheat on aroma too. Its an alright weisse, nothing outstanding, competent just lacks a little character, the swallow is a little dull, but then spicy hoppy finish. Yes the spice on the finish is very good, rest is competent enough.

Bottle. [thank you, faroeviking]
Pours golden with a slight haze. A big, mostly staying, white, frothy head. Okay bubbly liquid. Aroma has some metal, banana, lemons, grainy wheat and apples. High carbonation, rather thin. Flavour is rather weak, some metal harshness because of the high carbonation. SUbdued sweetness.
