Zlotta (207) - Bonn, GERMANY - APR 19, 2015
0,5 l bottle at a restaurant. Hazy, brownish orange with a huge, fluffy, stable, white head. Aroma of banana and clove, mabe a bit of cinnamon as well. Sweetish and spicy taste of banana and clove, supplemented by some cinnamon. Short, slightly bitter and sourish finish. Medium body, fizzy mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Decent Weizen with lots of banana. Good!

Tap (Academus, Wroclaw). Barwa zlota, piwo metne, piana biala niezbyt obfita. Jak pszeniczne piwo i w aromacie i smaku choc w smaku ciut za kwaskowe. Delikatnie wytrawne, lekkie, pijalne. Ot jak pszeniczne nic nie urywa.

Beer4000 (4916) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 15, 2015
500 ml bottle. Unclear orange body with a nice, big, stable, creamy off-white head. Strong aroma of wheat, citric fruit, yeast, banana and cloves. Flavor is very tasty and refreshing, with everything from the aroma, the sweetness feels balanced. Body is just the way it should be and long lasting aftertaste, Might be my favorite German Hefeweizen, everything seems to be in perfect balance with this one.

Amber coloured, cloudy with big frothy white head. Aroma of lightly spiced banana bread. Sweet taste, honey, tiniest bit of pepper. Finish is a bit bland and watery. Not bad.

Bottle. Hazy amber with a white head. lots of banana and bubblegum and marzipan in the nose, tarty yet pleasingly and mildly sweet in the mouth. Full body, highly carbonated, tarty, peachy finish. Pleasing.
