4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a cloudy pale golden color with a thick three finger high head that settles slowly to a solid cap. The resulting lace is a bit tattered, but sticks nicely, leaving a broken webbing behind.
Smell; lots of strong bananas and cloves with a big wheat backing. After this warms up a bit, a little lemon peel and some sweet malts come through, as well as a touch of bubblegum. A bit more weizen than weizenbock in the aroma, but still very good.
Taste; the bananas, cloves and wheat are just as prevalent in the flavor as they were in the aroma. Bubblegum and a zesty lemon fill out the middle, and then a sweet maltiness, and a bit of a tartness, come through in the finish.
Mouthfeel is full bodied, with a very creamy smooth carbonation, and just an incredible drinkability. This one goes down so smoothy. If this was available anywhere near me I would keep some on hand all of the time. I picked mine up in Grand Rapids, MI.

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.

Flasche 50cl. Bernsteinfarben, recht trüb. Stücke von Bruchhefe fallen ins Glas. Runder, gelungener Eindruck, im Abgang für meinen Geschmack etwas süß. Wärmendes Mundgefühl bleibt.

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.
