Held onto a bottle of this for quite some time (for reasons unknown) and decided it might be time to taste it. I became a little hesitant when I cracked it as it failed to pssshhhrt! Poured it into an Aventinus glass, it was relatively lifeless, raising only a thin white pad of foam, that managed to last the length. The body of beer a clean hazy gold with only the lightest amount of fine carbonation popping to the surface. Subtle spicy and grainy nose, sweet bubblegum and overly ripe bananas with a little note of tangy fruit. The aroma was quite pleasant but lacked the oomph of a good hefe, as did the flavour. Thin, watery body, light and spritzy in carbonation, it had an odd plastic feel mid-palate and a light lactic and gluggy feel in the back of the mouth, before finishing off with a short herbal and sweet swallow. Flavours were subtle with only a little of the normal bubblegum and clove-like phenols and fruity esters associated with a good example of the style. A little disappointed as I thought this may top the Weihenstephan and Spaten offerings, but it just lacked in all aspects. May be the higher alcohol content to blame for its lack of body and flavour. Still, a balanced and clean hefe-weizen that was easily quaffable.

Bottled. An organic beer, hear hear. Overall a fantastic hefe weizen. The aroma features besides bananas a lot of citrusy or exotic ftuit. Golden, orange and copper color with a thick white head. Taste is more fresh bitter fruits and hops and less bananas and wheat. Bitter hops and fruit aftertaste. Although 6.2% abv this beer is very refreshing.

On draught at Apex. Hazy golden color, in an official glass. Aroma is spicy clove, banana, wheat, and sweet grass. Taste is similar to aroma, with banana bread, wheat, and bittersweet grass notes. Mouthfeel is fizzy and yet substantial, with lingering banana bread notes in the finish.
