2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ YNWA, Kolding. Pours a lightly hazy yellow, with a rather small, fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet, some berries and a little banana. Quite full, and rather light in carbonation - but still a little thin. Flavour is not as sweet as the aroma with a light sourish fruitiness, some peach and a little banana. Not that terribly hefe-like all in all. A bit too sweet, and a bit too sour, so a little underwhelming.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2007 Bottiglia da 75cl a pasto (trofiette di farina di castagne con salsa di noci e dopo assaggi vari di formaggi); versa colore oro molto scuro con schiuma compatta, perlage evidente; inizialmente non molto torbida, aumenta di torbidezza verso la fine e si intravedono non pochi sedimenti di lievito. Aroma bananosissimo e aspro, sapore ben bilanciato fra dolce (malto), acidino-citrico (lievito) e un po’ di amaro nel finale abbastanza secco per lo stile. Corpo robusto ma comunque va giù bene. La migliore hefe assaggiata._______ENGLISH TEXT HERE___________75cl bottle at dinner (handmade chestnut flour pasta with nut sauce and various cheese tastings); pours a nice deep golden colour with compact white head, evident perlage; at first not very hazy, it gains cloudiness at the second/third pour and yeast sediment is visible. Aroma is very banana and a bit sour, taste is well balanced between sweet (malts), sour-citric (yeast) and a pleasant but not overwhelming bitterness in the finale, also quite dry for the style. Body is not thin but drinkability high anyway. Best hefeweizen I ever tasted.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good, very dense yellow head, fully hazy orange-yellow beer (served to perfection by Nino at Sherwood pub, Nicorvo ). Oranges & other citrus, banana, very fruity & estery. Same fruitiness and esters, oranges, banana mash, fusels, ends on (unripe) bananapeel. Quite sweet-sourish with a good balance, helped by a feral bitter finish. Wheat slickness, lots of it, and well bodied. A rather good, if not very original Hefeweizen.
