COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Uncle Ottoís Weiss Beer. For a beer so refreshing, itís a very complex, satisfying taste. A special yeast produces esters, compounds that replicate subtle flavors of fruits and spices. This fermentation provides the most critical component of the extremely distinctive flavor. So distinctive, in fact, that trying to describe it leaves one struggling for comparisons; some may find cloves, even banana!

The only description I can come up with for the aroma is that itís like the aroma of walking through a damp, but sunny redwood forest. In other words, I canít place what I smell, but itís earthy and welcoming. The flavor is like that, too. Itís sunny and pleasant, with an earthy background and just a hint -- a tiny one -- of honey. Itís a nice beer, and one that I would enjoy having on hand.

Solid weiss with the wheat sweetness and hint of banana. The clove is what makes this beer taste a little unusual.

Not bad, but a bit too strange for me. I donít know what it is, but this just isnít my thing. Not bad by any means, though.

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 29, 2002
Moderately carbonated and tang colored--or more specifically, the color of a horizonal sun rise on a hot day. Peppery, pungent hop abundance in smell and taste. Tingles the mouth with a prickling woodiness. After adjusting to this mouthfeel, the underpinning banana taste is detectable. This beer has a sweet/sour citric finishing note that is rather pleasant. A commendable try at a the german wheat style.

Kind of wierd bitterness. But not bad.

This was o.k., I guess. Nothing to get excited about or nothing very distinguishable. Mild clove taste, usual weiss banana on the finish. I thought I detected nutmeg somewhere in there. Rather sweet. Not bad, but I donít plan on grabbing another anytime soon.

Couldy yellow appearance; Thinish head; Banana in the nose. Thin palate with fake banana flavors. Very cloying. Too sweet.
