2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden orange. Big, rocky head of tight bubbles. Maybe too clear for the style but otherwise right on. Nose is banana and some nutty malt accents, fairly well rounded. Despite the big head, this is somewhat flat. Combined w/ this the thick, oily wheat mouthfeel really comes off as heavy even though this is in no way too sweet. The flavor is pretty much in line w/ the banana of the nose only milder here. Slightly tart w/ almost no hop bitterness to finish. A nice, milder hefe but not really to my taste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Golden, lively carbonation, big stable creamy white head, a bit hazy; moderate sweetish-wheaty nose: cloves, yeast, lemons and unfortunately vegetables in the background; moderate sweet-sourish flavour, medium bodied; light tartness in the malty-wheaty finish, followed by a faint hoppy tail. Not bad, but not great.....

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Swingtop bottle. Opens with a forceful pop. Pours a beautiful clear light orange with an amazingly thick foamy white froth, very dense and sticks around forever. Aroma is sweet ripe banana and grains, like banana pudding, some caramelized sugar. Flavor follows aroma exactly, bananas foster, fried brown sugar, very lightly metallic, ripe banana, grainy, slightly hot finish. Body is quite thin and watery with very low carbonation. Starting to like it less and less the more I drink... way too estery.
