An unclear orange beer with a thin white head. Both the aroma and flavor are sweet wheaty. Nothing wrong, but nothing special either.

It’s alright. Nothing to make it stand out from other German weisses. Usual banana flavour, but with a slight grape tinge. Quite thick.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at GBBF, August 2005. Orangey colour. And it has quite a zesty, orangey flavour too. Quite a soft hefe. The banana and vanilla is there, but not as overpowering as some. Definite yeasty notes and gentle acidity. Distinct sweet and sour effect. I tend to prefer these more restrained style to the fuller estery ones that can sometimes seem rather overblown and a bit flabby.
