3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2003 Bottled. I found this in a convenience store at the Doral Building on Michigan Avenue, tucked behind the Coors Light tallboys. Tasted it on the train home, since the rush hour schedule wouldn't let me stop over at Flossmoor Station.
Drank this from the bottle, so I couldn't tell the color well. But drinking from the bottle did kick up a nice foamy head inside, and there was a fine coating of yeast at the bottom of the bottle. Presented a nice wheaty nose when I opened the bottle. The usual clove and banana tastes only became apparent after the first few sips. Between that was a nice malty sweetness balanced unobtrusively by German hops. Further down the bottle, the lemony taste becomes evident, which builds to a nice tartness as it warms up. All in all, a good, tasty beer to find.

Draft at WOB. Nose is mostly banana and bubble gum. Really smooth grainy wheat malt character lightly bitter but more malt forward. Damn good.

Cloudy orange. Typical head. Spicy & fruity aroma. Light body. Flavour of wheat & banana. The composition is well done. The palate is not solid enough.

Een bier met weinig geur en smaak aan. Het is niet slecht, de meeste mensen zullen dit wel lusten, maar echt lekker is het ook niet vind ik. Een bier dat je snel vergeet. Dan is de Dunkel een pak beter
