4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at new CBM. Very creamy, lots of grain in the nose, banana and cream. Light fruitiness, cherry maybe, great stuff. Really smooth. They seem to be getting better and better.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Molto Stand. A cloudy mellow straw gold, similar in look to pineapple juice - but in a good way. It has a filmy white head that clings to the glass. The aroma is yeasty with a light classic weizen spiciness. Medium bodied, soft mouthfeel but possibly undercarbed. The taste is lemon, cloves, sweet fruity weizen goodness but on the mild side. Not bad.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
The least impressive of the range at the brewery’s own pub. Maybe that is because this is a Czech-run brewery and Weizen is not really a Czech speciality. All a bit thin.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2014 Tap at bungalow. Deep gold, cloudy, with a fine, frothy head. Pretty. Nose of cloves, banana, wheat, bread. a bit tart, bready some minerals. A bit bitter. Better then previously, still a bit light and bland but decent.
Draught at the brewpub, 2010: 5/3/6/3/12. Buttery, fruity aroma that is not very weizen-like. Flavor is more traditional, with banana and clove as well as other fruits and a decent tart edge. A bit too much butter for me.
