3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle from Gourmondo.de. Cloudy brownish yellow colour, creamy large persistent off-white head, good lacing. Heavily malty aroma of wheat and hay, moderate, herbal, lemony and floral hops with moderate overripe banana notes. Taste is initally moderately sweet and slightly bitter and acidic, moderately bitter and slightly meaty finish with an astringent feel. Medium body, slick texture, lively carbonation. Better than average wheat beer, bit more hops than usual.

Nice cloudy beer filling up the glass as I pour, crisp aroma. Head fizzes out quickly but doesn’t matter. Mildly bitter taste -- very good. Great.

Pours cloudy copper. Aroma has yeast, banana, grass. Just a hint of bitterness that quickly fades away. A very nice wheat beer for certain.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 15A). Bottle 50 cl - Batch 1666060514. AROMA: wheat profile with vanilla and clove notes with a slight banana aroma. no hop aromas. APPEARANCE: deep gold color and hazy. large white head with good retention. TASTE: sweet wheat background with a complementary vanilla character. odd undescribable flavor. persistent medium-low bitterness and a medium-dry finish. PALATE: medium-light body and high carbonation. OVERALL: altough it has a nice aroma, there is an odd flavour present. but it is still a good weizen.

"not quite up to par with the regular weisse (possibly the best out there) or the brooklyner hopfenweisse, but this was a solid, slightly hoppy, bubble gummy wheat beer nonetheless. i’d choose the standard over this, but glad i tried it."

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy orange color, medium sized white head which drops to a minimal sized quite fast. Aroma is banana, yeast, hops, wheat, spices and some orange. Bittersweet taste. Medium body, average carbonation. Bitter finish. In short, weaker version of Schneider Tap 5.
