3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2013 Tap at Edobori Beer Belly. Pale yellow, cloudy with white head. Aroma is wheat and a bit of lemon. Also slight herbal element. Taste is creamy malts, wheat and a touch of spice. Fizzy in mouth and nice texture. Gets creamier the further you go down the glass. Not bad. Re-rate 21/6/13. Aroma this time is creamy and a bit fruity, maybe sour plum or peach, spicy and hint of banana. Taste is a bit flat, creamy banana with a bit of spice again.

Aroma is yeasty with some wheat and banana esther. Palate feels floury and a bit light. Flavour has some sweetish and ripe banana, wheat and yeast. Average.

Tasted at the brewery from 33cl bottle. Good workaday weizen that does all it should but is not a classic.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: Light smoke and BBQ, malt, some biscuit and banana notes.
Palate: Fairly well balanced
Flavor: light smoke, banana, some spice.
Comments: This was a smoked version that was aged for 9 months. Not sure whether this was distributed or just a small experiment. I preferred their aged Weizenbock.

Draught at the Beer Belly.
A decent weizen, rather light in flavor but does what it is supposed to do, with bananas, cloves, etc. Well done, though not quite inspiring.
