BB 23.05.07 Code 3064103
Pours an opaque-hazed golden/orange with a creamy white head that left soft lace trails. A touch of wet dog is the only detterence to the yeasty aroma of banana with lemon and light orange zest. Ripe banana reigns supreme in the flavor and comes back strong in the aftertaste while mild, tart lemons round out the fruitiness. Soft and fluffy in the mouth. A great yeast-experience.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Handsome hefeweizen pour, a hazy straw body with a tall foamy head. It smells like freshly sliced bananas with a touch of clove and a subdued suggestion of a lemon twist. This is very light and pillowy in the mouth. The flavor is full of ripe bananas, bubblegum, and a touch of lemon. It leaves the mouth feeling like you’ve just had a tasty fresh banana. Nice.

Hazy golden. Light yeasty aroma. Light in palate and flavor. Citrusy lemon flavor. Had a slight dirt taste. Not one of the better hefes I’ve tried.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very golden and cloudy with a huge, nice head. Both aroma and flavour signals a good German weiss. It has light sweetness, notes of wheat, fruit (banana) and no bitterness. It’s a nice weizen, perhaps a bit too sweet in the long run, and it might have more body IMO.
