3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(500ml bottle) A pretty safe & pedestrian Hef , a one dimensional style , but when made with flare & depth i dig um . light yeasty, banana estery and caramel nose . perfumey. Safe maybe , but it tastes good enough . banana is pretty subtle ,sugary sweet , tangy spice notes . not bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It pours a surprisingly pale yellow body, that of course is hazy. The head is small, white and extremely short-lived and very un-hefeweizen-ish. Pleasant fruity aroma with plenty of banana, spices and yeast, just like it’s supposed to be. The taste is medium sweet with a refreshing acidic note. The flavour follows the aroma, with additional delicious honey notes. Medium body with medium carbonation. A nice hefeweizen!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
25 May 2011, bottle. very pale yellow and very hazy w/ frothy white head. doesn’t look very nice. too pale. nose is primarily a sweet, yeasty aroma that has some banana tones and some spicy ones at that. thin/med body, creamy and a bit fizzy. This is okay. it is primarily yeasty rice pudding kind of flavour. banana and coriander are very soft. body is nice and creamy. still, i like my hefe a bit bigger in banana sweetness.
