3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Swing-top. Aroma of wheat, yeast, and hoppy funk. Cloudy light orange pour; very lacy, creamy, rocky white head. Light, watery body; slight cloves in with the wheat and yeast, light sour tang. Citrus and tart finish, slight acidity. Finally, a clean, drinkable HW on this trip.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(swing top bottle) Hazy orange colour with a big but not very persistent off-white foamy head. Light-sweet and slightly wheaty aroma with sour and fruity (apricot, banana) notes. Moderately sweet malty, not pronounced wheaty taste with a sour-fruity touch, light to medium bodied, rather smooth carbonation for a Hefeweizen; fruity finish with light noters of cloves. Fairly average.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. A hazy dark gold coloured hefe which poured with an enormous white head and left good lacing. The aroma is quite pleasant with good banana and clove notes. The taste also has hefe qualities with creamy bananas but it’s all abit watery thin - even for the style. Average.

(Bottle 50 cl) Beautiful yellow beer with a characteristic, tall head. Fresh and "spritzig" - lots of carbonation. Quite dry with some citrusy notes and a short, limited bitterness. Not a bad Hefe. 230900

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Murky orange-gold color. Maintains a thin, but lasting white head. Typical banana, clove, vanilla,hefeweiss aromas are noted, but seem a bit faint. Crisp, smooth and refreshing palate. Nice orange, vanilla, yeasty flavors emerge but are a bit short-lived - weak finish. Not too bad, but certainly not one of the classics.
