2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a weizen glass. ABV 5.5%
Deep orange golden colour on the body, with a disappointing head, just one thin line,less than one finger of white foam with low retention, leaving light lacing on the glass.
Aroma has the typical banana but more like concetrated banana juice instead of a fresh one. Apple juice too, this one smells like a juice cocktail.
Taste is better though, light wheat, quite sweet and a little bit grainy.Some citrus fruits as well, something reminding of curacao or kumquat. On the aftertaste is notable again the banana and apple juice flavours, but it becomes light bitter on the finish, with okay duration and a subtle metallic flavour.
Medium thin body, okay carbonation.
Overall okay hefe, a bit weird but still enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml Bottle (Thanks Benzai) - Hazy golden with a small white head. Lemon, banana, spice and a hint of must in the aroma. Tangy and very carbonated taste with cloves, banana, lemon and pineapple detected. Quite an unusually high about carbonation, at least compared to what I am used to. That doesn’t detract from the enjoyment, though. Very refreshing.
