3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Hazy brown/ruby with a cm thick ivory head.
Aroma: Bubblegum, banana, lemon, caramel and bread.
Taste: Medium sweetness, low bitterness and medium sourness.
Palate: Smooth thick texture, medium body, prickly carbonation and astringent. The finish lingers with banana, caramel and bubblegum notes being quite strong, with a cutting citrus at the end which has the sharpness of lemon or lime. There is also a subtle note of clove.
Comments: Very tasty and refreshing. Left a glass lace.

500ml bottle from appellation wines, cheers Ash! Pours murky brown with a thin white head. Aromas of banana, clove, toffee, touch of honey. Taste is sweet, needs more bitterness to balance it out. Bit thin. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at GBBF 2013. Looks pretty awful to be honest, bit like some rye bread that has been put in a blender with water, or maybe a muddy canal. Fortunately tastes a lot better, classic well made dunkelweizen, good malty flavours added to some weizen clove and apple. Was there a hint of sourness or was I still on the rye bread analogy? Sometimes dunkelweizens come out disappointingly bland - this one didn’t.

Tap at GBBF, thanks to Fergus. It pours milky brown with a small white head. The nose is earthy, smokiness, milky, wood and smoke. The taste is smooth, sweet, oily, smoky, ham, orange, earth and decent bitterness with a dry, earthy funsh. Medium body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the Battersea Beer Festival (Feb ’12).
It harldy looks fit for drinking! Murky/cloudy yellow/brown like a cross between dirty canal water and a banana smoothie! Frothy tan head and a decent one at that. Good aroma’s come off this beer, all the usual suspects for the style, banana, clove, maybe something sweet in there too, vanilla/cream/caramel?
Top notch in the tasting department, toffee, caramel, banana, clove, a little yeast and a bit more ’nana for good measure.
Mouthfeel also top notch, rich, creamy, massages the throat as it goes down, fairly low carbonation.
Overall I really enjoyed this beer.

Dark cloudy brown but surprisingly fresh. Bit watery but a good balance of sweetness and bitterness.
