2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tart, tangy, fizzy but soft. The palate was far too close to watery, especially in the finish. Some hops - created a "lemony soap" flavor. not overly impressive.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
One of the best wheats yet.Fruity - babana-like aroma - thick, creamy, long-lasting head. Cloudy, nectar-like appearance. Flavor is pleasantly sweet, but not overpwoering, a bit of citrus, with a banana or two thrown in for good measure. Strong fisnish as well.

Cloudy yellow look, small but not bad looking head. Wow! The set of aromas was great, intensive banana-raisin complex, so rich, ahh! Hmm the city Wurzburg knows how to make good stuff. Highly recommended!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2011 2010 rating: Draught, brewery. Fluffy head, cloudy tan body. Sugary, dusty and a bit of pedio on the nose. Very sweet, sugary character. Doesn’t really come together much.
2005 rating: Bottle. Pale straw colour, hazy, rich and thick head. A little bit sweet, sweaty. Simplistic, with only slight banana, sugar nuances. 5-4-5-2-8 = 2.4

Nice ldoudy wheat beer with a thick foamy head. Spicy aroma and a lightly sweet flavor, that is very mild. Definately could use a stronger flavor to make it a better wheat beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale amber color, cloudy but not dense, well carbonated, significant foam. Nose is surprisingly different with an appley, cider, winey aroma, some Belgian like yeastiness and light woody/peppery notes. Flavor is sweet and yeasty, fruity apple, some spice towards the end and dryness in the finish. Remains winey in the aftertaste with a touch of banana creeping in and lingering. Somewhat different for a heffy but pretty good.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cloudy golden with a huge head on the pour. Aroma of wheat, clove, yeast and some lemon. Sweet in the front of the mouth, but that’s quickly replaced by a weak sourness. You expect more from the flavor after the pleasant aroma, but no such luck.

Decent flavor, but a bit on the sour side. Good body with nice carbonation. Nice orange amber appearance.
