3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
