3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of orange, honey, bread, soapy wheat, spicy hops, pear, banana and a touch of clove. Fruity, hoppy taste with bread, grapefruit, pine needles, honey, a slightly soapy wheat character, tropical fruit and a generous resiny, piney bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Slightly schizophrenic fusion of weissbier and IPA, and a bit unbalanced with a fairly harsh bitterness. Still quite nice.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear orange with a medium off white head. Aroma has some tangy citrus...grapefruit and orange. Flavor is sweet and syrupy grapefruit that quickly turns very bitter...resinous and piney. Not much in the way of yeast quality...seems out of balance. Mouthfeel is medium/full and the finish is very bitter...resinous and piney almost medicinal. Underwhelming.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
golden clear color with a typhical big foam that you would expect from a weisse. Nose is a strange perfumish fruity piney citrusy tone. Mouth is banana, bubble gum, with some bitter tones hit ting in the end. Not balanced or great at all. This bottle passed "best before date" some 7 months ago so that might not give any justice for this beer. Maybe better off when drunk fresh.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
660 ml bottle. Hazy golden with a small to medium white head. Honey aroma with pungent grassy and piney hops. Crisp caramel flavours. Rich and malty but a light body. Unusual mix of wheat, cloves, banana and hops. Works quite well.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very complex beer. Very little head and no lacing, but a good fruity aroma. The taste is really a combination of barley and grains with heavy, almost syrupy tropical fruits.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle via trade. Golden orange appearance with a light tan head. Some juicy hops in the nose but also a lot of bread and a bit of cardboard. Tangerine, mango fruity notes in the flavor. A little sappy / goopy resiny. Sharp bitterness and sweetness. Boozy. Gross.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber body with a medium creamy white head. Aroma is banana, clove, grassy pine syrup tones, hints of booze and peaches. Taste is grassy piney syrup tones, faint banana, alcohol, hints of spruce. Medium to full body, medium to high carbonation. Nice enough, but I’m not feeling the meeting of styles here.
