fdomig (503) - München, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2015
500ml bottle. Aroma, banana as it should, light yeast. Appearance is dark, cloudy orange with a very long lasting huge foam. Impressive. Taste is sweet and bitter in the best possible balanced way. Amazing. Stays forever with a subtile dryness. Best of the best.

darkseduction (647) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - NOV 13, 2014
Flasche 50cl. Bernsteinfarben, recht trüb. Stücke von Bruchhefe fallen ins Glas. Runder, gelungener Eindruck, im Abgang für meinen Geschmack etwas süß. Wärmendes Mundgefühl bleibt.

Diabobale (268) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - NOV 11, 2014
Una buona weizen ben strutturata e carica. con note acidule al palato, ba con un buon corpo, rilascia sentori molto floreali e aromatici grazie ai malti utilizzati.

Very pleasant Wheat-Bock…
