3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the brewery. Round about 60F. Color of tanned leather, a bit darker than burnt orange, and cloudy, slightly yellow around the very edges. Excellent foam, a solid chunk at the top. Takes a few minutes to simmer down. Aroma is clove and bread. Flavor is wheaty, some maltiness there. Character is largely clove and malt, mostly in the direction of the yeast clove, but well balanced with the malt. Very much like modern German styles in terms of color, drinkability, and taste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep hazy brown coloured body with a tan tint and a thick, three centimetre tall tan head. Medium-bodied; Assertive yeast characteristic with some banana and wheat with a bit of sugars and toffee and very little else. Aftertaste shows mostly the malt and yeast characteristics with the sugars and a hint of citrus on the back end. Overall, a decent dunkelweizen at best, and a very mild lager at worst. Not really worth drinking, even if you like the style. I sampled this pint on draught at Gruner in Portland, Oregon today on 13-April-2013 for US$8.

Big sudsy dusty white head, prune body, thick film of yeast left on the glass. Good fruity nose with loads of spice. Monster clove, bananas, sweet malt, and white pepper. Good beer although a little gummy on the finish.
