3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I feel that this has more hops than the traditional German wheat beers. It’s pretty good, but unfortunately lost a bit of the tangy freshness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Pours a hazy orange colour with a small off-white head. Sweet and fruity aromas with a distinct touch of spices and coriander, herbs and banana. The fruity flavour is dominated by grains, hops, spices and some sweet corn. Feels a bit unbalanced but gets better after a couple of mouthfuls. Soft and sparkly mouthfeel. Bitterness = light+. A good mix of IPA and wheat ale, but more a spicy wheat ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 5.5%. Wheaty bubble gum aroma. Cloudy orange colour. Big stable off-white head. The flavour is quite bitter with a wheat and bubble gum finish. Rather bitter, but does not have the aroma hop I would expect from the name.
