Good medium head with great lacing. A bit of corriander,very little bitterness. Try again and brought rating from 4 to 3.8

A very nice suprise, tasted on draft at Strauss Universal city. Much more flavor than I was expecting, nice fruitiness, creamy, nice on the tongue, Good example of an American brewer doing a German style hefe.

Pours gold with a small head. Nose has a strong banana element, mixed in with a touch of plastic. Flavor is vanilla and banana, with mineral aromatics and straw/bread. The dominant flavor is banana and grainy bread, not bad at all. Mouthfeel is refreshing.

This beer replaced the Extra Special Bitter that was out stock. The beer was cloudy and yellow. There was flavors of fruit like banna with some head. This was too sweet for me and was the lowest of all beers tasted.

Pours super cloudy, milky looking, pal yellow with a thin white head that leaves good lace. Smells of bananas and yeast, sweet. Tastes the same. Bananas and yeast sweet, slight honey. Medium, watery body, light carbonation.
