0.5 l bottle from the brewpub in Laaber... Nice clody brown-golden color, stable head... Tasteful hop and wheat aroma of banana and some citrus... Quite perfect traditional Weizen taste, mild, refreshing and full of aroma... Mild fruity ending...

Draught at the Great Japan Beer Festival in Osaka (7/13/2013). Sweet banana nose, with good spice (just right). Dirty brownish swill color. Ripe banana flavors throughout, with a spicy bite in the finish. Medium body. Well-made hefe.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1590) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 15, 2013
On tap at the GJBF Osaka. kind of a cloudy browinsh gold color, more of a banana aroma than any other weizen I had at the fest with a hint of spiciness. Definitely more of a fruity than spicy weizen. Very nice but I prefer cloves over banana. A rich malty body, good stuff.

Bierkrug (2131) - Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, GERMANY - MAR 31, 2013
500 ml bottle direct from the Brewery in Laaber, Germany. Pours a hazy dark hazy orange color with an large frothy white head that mostly lasted with nice lacing. Aroma is full of sour citrus, banana and cloves. Taste is medium sweet flavor, slight bananas, cloves and with a medium spicy sweet palate of lasting duration. Very different. Excellent in all ways as a Hefe!
