3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Head is initially large, frothy, white, fully lasting.
Body is hazy medium to dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (bread), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of banana, taffy, kiwi, clove, pepper.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Light to medium body, watery/creamy texture, lively carbonation.
Well, it looks great, that’s for sure. Big lasting head and a glowing dark gold, can’t beat that for a Helles Weissbier. The aroma is also quite nice, a good balance of esters and phenols and base ingredients. Unfortunately in the mouth it’s not nearly as enjoyable...very thin and watery (esp. for the style), and rather bland. Overall solid.
