3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Shared a 50cl bottle. Pours a cloudy orangish yellow colour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is spicy, earthy and light fruity. Average carbonation and medium to light body. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with a dry end. Overall, a not so tasty beer but very drinkable.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
330ml bottle dated 11/07/2011 served in a weizen glass around 6 degrees:
Pardon my ignorance, but I had no knowledge of this product (or the brewery for that matter) until I spotted the brew at my local beer spot.
It pours a hazy corn robe with vivid carbs letting rise about two fingers of finely structured foam. Retention is average and I got some nice rough lacing. The brew is visually very appealing.
The nose is very bready and sweet as expected from a Weizen so points are earned there for sure. Apart from this, I got some wild hops in the back (I say wild because they had a distinctive grassy aroma) that blended very well with the malty aspects.
On the tongue, the brew was a bit disappointing to be honest. I got some bready/sweet malts paired with timid hops leaving the taste a bit diluted and lacking corpus. It has all the elements you’d find in any Weizen, except I was looking for a little more boldness (perhaps from the hops) to kick it up a knotch.
Overall this brew is a fair choice and I still recommend it for the sake of discovery. Cheers!

Opaque golden yellow with off-white lasting, lacing foam head. Aroma is wheat, bread. Tastes bread like, soft, fresh, little fruity. Quite long aftertaste. (Kassel 201403)

On tap at Babelas, Leicester. Very cloudy golden orange colour. Aroma is wheat and slight cloves. Taste is bananas and slight clove. Nice enough. A little too much carbonation for me perhaps.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap. Gialla ambrata con riflessi aranciati. Aroma di frutta matura, su tutto banana e un po’ di agrumato (mandarino). Speziatura classica dello stile (chiodo di garofano). Non molto intenso il gusto, piuttosto acido, si ritrovano banana agrumi e speziatura ma il gusto del frumento è più forte del suo odore. Bevibile ma lontano dall’eccellenza
