2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at brewpub pours golden-orange, lacy with white and sturdy head. Faint nose of orange and banana with grassy edge. Flavor has a grassy bitterness but lacks sweetness and with low esters in backdrop. Pretty and refreshing but lacks balance and spice.

From tap at brewpub. Pours hazy orange with a creamy white head. Malty and eserty banana and citric aroma. Acidic to citric wheat flavour initially, gives a away a dry set of fruity esters following this. Dry and bitter finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewpub. Served with an orange, hazy body under a nice, dense, beige head leaving nice lacings. Banana and some yeast in the aroma, which could easily be more complex and pronounced, but I certainly didn’t expect much more from this tourist trap. The flavor is likewise, with banana and some yeast, and there’s also some wheat and cloves. A bit thin mouthfeel. It finished with banana and some hoppy bitterness. A quite anonymous hefe, but not foul. (070805)

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Lindebrau, Berlin. An orange weizen with hazy texture. Citrusy aroma, orange flavour. Carbonated and creamy. Good but very little taste to it. Quite boring actually. Soft.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Epitome of a nice, drinkable wheat. Floral nose and very pretty cloudy look give this beer a good deal of promise. The taste is what you would expect and certainly not too bland. A tad on the murky side.
