2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy orange topped by a finger of fluffy white head showing good retention and lacing properties. The nose is wheaty, fruity. bergamot, ripe mangos, peaches, banana, bubblegum. Faint hops coming through, but they get lost in all that sweetness. The taste stays in the same lane, but the earthy hops get more room to shine. Medium body. Wide wet soil finish. Pretty good. Cheers!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0,5 Flasche von bier-deluxe. Mandarinen-farbend trüb, wenig Kohlensäure. Riecht fruchtig nach Bananen und Maracuja. Schmeckt fruchtig nach Bananen und leicht nach Maracuja, dann leicht trocken hopfig-bitter und wenn ich mich nicht täusche leicht nach Grapefruit. Sehr gelungenes Bier!

0,5L Bottle "Tap 4 Mein Grünes" from systembolaget - Aroma comes off with tons of really nice banana bread with herbs. Flavor-wise this beer has a nice amount of breadyness with some banana on the back-end. Some clove, herbs and citrus as well. Quite tasty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 500ml (Alko)
Hazy orange-yellow color, decent cloudy white head. Wheaty with some citrus in the nose. Medium-bodied. Flavor is dominated by citrusy bitterness with some banana fruityness. Organic character. Cascade with pine and citrus is evident here and makes this quite different than normal standard German hefes - this is more new wave. Myself I prefer more banana fruity than citric hefeweizens.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Hazy, deep golden to amber colour with average, fairly lasting and lacing, off-white head. Yeasty, wheaty aroma notes of banana, and clove, herbal hoppy overtones with a touch of orange. Taste is moderately sweet wheat malty, yeasty spicy and herbal hoppy, hints of banana, intense notes of clove. Already too rich in content to be called "refreshing". Good.

Das Bio-Weizen ist orange-braun trüb. Geruch nach Banane, aber auch Zitrus. Geschmacklich hebt sich das Bier durch eine deutliche Bitternote ab, die auch Aromen von Grapefruit mitbringt.
