Hazy, yellow colour with huge and stable head, without lacing. Medium intensive aroma of banana with feint spruce note on background. Taste is heavy sweet with minimal sourness. High carbonation. Medium body. Quite good hefeweizen.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
16.9oz bottle. Hazy, cloudy orange body. Thin, steady white head. I’m pretty sure this is my first Czech Hefeweizen. Pronounced banana yeast tones, pretty much what you want from a hefe. Medium bodied, a little sweet, doesn’t have that perfect clove balance a classic example has. Pleasant creamy yeast tones. Easy going, enjoyable to drink.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 0,5l, BB 10/12/2014, tasted 23/12/2013. World Beer Awards 2013 winner.
Moderately hazy golden yellow. Creamy white head, considerably unstable, airy, big bubbles. Not adhesive. Aroma: citrus, bit of dough, bit of hops, bit of soap, flowers and traces of spruce. MF: light, very fresh & tangy, playful. Taste: mildly bitter, slightly acid, not sweet; roasted grains. For me even a bit watery and metallic. Aftertaste ephemeral.
I liked the freshnes and its balance of bitter/acid/sweet tastes, yet, the beer was a bit too quick for me (the head gone in a wink) and the tangy tickling at my tongue almost disturbing. And, sorry, I didn’t appreciate the soapy tones, (I would call it taste of glue).

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled at home, price around 1,5$. Good appearance, strong aroma of banana, wheat, bread. Bad thing is kind of "soap" taste and quite watery complexion. Some citrus in it aswell. Drinkable and soft. Nice to try but i would say that it is average beer. Maybe my bottle was wrong but this soap and water taste dissapointed me, really. It had chances to be a nice one :)

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught beer. The color is too dark, reddish - more like a conventional barley beer. Turbidity is not enough. The foam is, but settles instantly without holding on. Carbonation is weak. Aroma - a very strong banana! Some fruit and wheat. Taste - a lot of banana, close to the classic vayzenu, but a little sour.
