Bottle. Spicy (clove/pepper) banana aroma. Cloudy dark tan color with medium head. Initial taste of sour malt with slight clove and bananas in the middle and a very nice yeast finish. Nice body. A nice dunkelweizen if you don’t like sweet flavors.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A pleasant enough wheat beer with a strong fruity banana character and a touch of toffee in the flavour. However, it is not very dark in colour and there’s not a lot of malt character, so it drinks more like a "normal" hefeweizen than a dunkel, so I guess it should lose a point for not being very true to style. Soft and easy-drinking although the sweetness starts to grate after a while, albeit tempered by a slightly acidic edge on the finish. Bottled at GBBF 2004.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2004 Bottle, at the Swan and Rushes, Leicester. Excellent Dunkel (or is it hefeweizen?), which is remarkably complex for the style. Plenty of sourish, appley, fruit flavour in here, with a delicious lingering yeasty aftertaste. This is ruddy, hazy, brown colour, with a big fluffy head. It's light and very moreish.

The-beer-with-the-longest-name-so-far isn´t that much to write home about.
Hazy brown beer. Sourish aroma that reminds me of the solution you have pickled hearing in. Sourish flavor.
