3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, year old. Slightly hazy orange brown color, thick off-white head. Aroma of toasted malt and some caramel. Some wheat. Soft sourish fruity hint, which I think is from the Saphyr hops. I got the same sourish fruit in some Saphyr pale ales. It lacks the banana, but it didn’t have any banana when I drank it fresh from tap last year either. Taste is of wheat, caramel and cookie. Soft bitterness, only a hint of sweetness, which is usually the other way around in a weizen. On the other hand, finish is more sweet, slight thin. It’s actually better than the time I had it from tap.
