Tap at Pizza Port OB. Cloudy brownish yellow with a one finger white head, fading to a thick film before long. Also, in a shaker pint. Lots of banana esters in the nose, some old grain. Flavor continues with fairly strong banana, but the spicy clove helps things from getting seemingly sweet. Nice balance in the flavor, didn’t think it’d be spicy enough from the nose. Not getting the old grain in the flavor. Scant bitterness, dry finish with a little wheat. Moderate prickly carbonation with a medium body. Actually pretty solid, have never even heard of this brewery, perhaps a newly acquired import?

Erasmus_ro (1459) - Alabama, USA - NOV 17, 2014
Bottle @ Habanero’s, Würzburg, 15/11/14, thanks Hart. Pours a hazy golden orange with a wallop of a white head. Mostly a regular weizen, stronger on banana and wheat, not so much on clove. Superb drinkability.

Arek (168) - Zielona Góra, POLAND - NOV 15, 2014
Bootle 0,5 l, Marktkauf Getränkemärkte, Cottbus, Germany. Bursztynowe, mętne piwo o grubej, puszystej i sztywnej pianie oraz łagodnym, pszenicznym, bananowym aromacie. W smaku gęste z bananową słodyczą, skontrowaną kwaskowym posmakiem i lekko goryczkowym finiszem.

Bottle 50cl. Slightly hazy (to very cloudy after pouring the sediment) medium amber color, huge frothy white head, recedes slowly to a thin layer, not that much lacing; aroma wheat, yeast, banana, spices (cloves, ginger); taste moderate fruity sweet, slightly sour (citrus), hint of bitterness, spicy notes; medium body, smooth mouthfeel, light creamy texture, average carbonation; finish fresh wheaty sweetbitter, sour citrus notes. Good example of the style!

wimpyjoe (4346) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2014
Bottle from Nissa, Hebden Bridge. Deeper dark orange colour with no head. Excellent hefeweizen style which is potent in its aroma and strong tasting too with a fine balance of malt, yeast and wheat.

Mooi troebel bier met een kleine schuimkraag. Mooie smaak van ongefilterd bier maar beetje droog op de nasmaak.
