3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Harmonisch süßer und dezent herber Beginn. Dieser steigert sich leider nicht mehr, verharrt aber immerhin auf der angenehmen Anfangsstufe. So dümpelt das Bier längere Zeit vor sich hin, wobei die Hefigkeit minimal schwindet. Der Abgang ist eher herb geprägt. Rundes Weizen für den Sommer. 12/11/11/10/8/11

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (from Koelschtrinker). Sweet banana/orange, clove and wheat malt aroma - nice. Cloudy orange-yellow color with moderate head. Sweet-tart lemon/orange, clove, and wheat malt flavor. Decent body. Not bad - a nice surprise from a supermarket beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Old BA rate - bottle)
Pours with a nice blooming pure white head that is definitely a bit fluffy and it actually holds pretty well. Very hazy orange-yellow color that is a touch darker than usual, looks like a proper hefe.
Malt sweetness shows up in the nose first; then onto some fainter yeastiness; citrusy and slight hints of banana. Not bad at all, but not overwhelmingly great or anything. Citrusy at first in the flavor, and has some bready yeastiness; catch the banana in the aftertaste. However, caught some metallic notes that prevent a refreshing and this needs cleaned up or to be cared for better. Fluffier medium body with soft carbonation. Could be a bit more of everything to be a good hefe, but nothing terrible either.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled 50cl. It pours a hazy honey colored beer with a quick diminishing fizzy white head. The nose is of banana, honey and lemon. A hint of mint. Slightly metallic. Grainy and oily. Slight smokiness. The taste is rather pleasant. Nicely balanced. Not to sweet with a good malt presence. Low bitterness. Light bodied. Decent mouthfeel. A lot of banana and honey showing up. A hint of mint, paprika and carrot. Slightly acidic. Hardly any lacing. Refreshing and drinkable. Yeasty finish with a hint of lemon. Not a terribly good Hefeweizen. Unfortunately a bit acidic - the major unpleasant characteristic of this beer.
