4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Dark brown color with beige head. Aroma is ripe bananas, yeast, berries, some toasted bread. Taste is ripe bananas, burnt caramel, prunes, toasty, slightly roasted towards the end. Hints of a sourishness that give it a surprisingly light character. Silky Weizen mouthfeel. A great dark Weizenbock with a nice balance. And I have finally found another good example of this beautiful style after a few mediocre ones.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Cloudy dark brown colour with average to huge, frothy, diminishing, off-white to beige head. Sweet-ish, fruity, wheaty aroma, note sof banana, baked banana, honey, clove, pear, slightly chocolately and roasty dark malty background. Taste is sweet fruity, wheaty, minimally chocolately, notes of banana, pear, baked banana, a touch of honey, minimally alcoholic finish; soft and minimally sticky palate comes close to cloying. Well matching, rather unusual chocolately addendum, sadly lacking some yeasty spiciness. A good one nevertheless.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 0.50l. Clear amber brown color with large soapy tan-like head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of yeast, clove, caramel, banana with mild cheesy note. Taste starts sweet caramel and sour grainy, follows by caramel and grass, mouthfeel is spicy, while finish is mild bitter. Medium body, oily texture and soft carbonation in palate. Quite dull, lacks some taste, huge disappointment for me...

Dark reddish brown colour. Aroma and flavours of plums, bananas, malts, caramel. Malty aftertaste with low carbonation and bitterness. Very good, but still not at the same rang as the best samples of this style.

Bottle at the brewery. Deep, dark, cloudy brown with a tall, tan pillowy head. Spicy nose, cloves, nutmeg, banana, chocolate. Sweet chocolate and banana and spice flavor. Estery fruits, prickly hops. Wonderfully prickly light carbonations. Great stuff, though it does get a bit cloying.
