Cloudy dark tan colour. Slightly fruity, dusty aroma. Balanced character, light yeast, some wheat and light banana. A sweet example but nonetheless retains some drinkability and balance.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2009 2009-07-28. Hazy golden body with a modest white head. (3+) Pleasant aroma is relatively mild, sweet yeast, generic fruit, alternating touches of banana and other esters. (7+) Flavour is similar with a sweet base, light bitterness and mild banana esters, modest tart wheat notes. Overall impression is on the sweet side. (7+) Average palate is smooth. Pretty decent hefe! Bottle from Carvills, Dublin

Medium bodied, thin texture, average carbonation, and a chalky finish. Average duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft @ street festival. Dark orange russet color with thick creamy off-white head. Aroma is clean with dried apricot and orange pith. Clean quaffable palate with medium carbonation. Dry entry with sweeter finish that leaves yeast on the tongue. Fruit character is nice and although it has little complexity I like it.
