COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With its amber-mahogany coloring and streaked with fine top-fermented yeast, this beer has a fine, persistent head that adheres well to the glass. It is pleasantly fruity with a typical top-fermented smell, an aroma of clove and nutmeg apple tantalizes the nose. On the tongue it is fresh, clean, full-bodied, harmonious and well-balanced. It finishes with a light, delicate taste of bitters leaving behind a sour impression.

Pours thick two finger, rocky head, body is orange-brown. Nice clove-banana balance on nose with some bready caramel malt notes coming through. Subtle in malt flavour, some fruity esters, finishes a little watery and tart with some slight hints of grassy hops.

Draft @ Taphouse CPH. Pours a dark golden color, which is a mix of brown and yellow, with a good head with some retention. The aroma is mostly malts with some apparent phenolic presence, while the taste is surprisingly (albeit mildly) sour and refreshing, carrying notes of fruits and spices. A favorite.

nephirem (139) - CROATIA - JUN 19, 2016
Pours hazy deep ruby color with rich white head. Smell is fruity, wheat with notes of banana to it. Medium body with soft, but prickly carbonation. Light texture. Taste is mostly sweet with some sourness and bitterness added. Aroma of wheat, clove, fruit, lots of banana, slight caramel and some hops towards the finish. Very rich and complex, beautifully balanced. Overall, delicious.

redbeered (54) - GREECE - JUN 9, 2016
bottle: pours an orange amber colour with a quickly dissipating off white head.....aroma more banana than clove but that changes a little as it warms.... subtle dried fruit and a smokiness present....not really smokiness but fenugreek,,,I think that’s it, it reminds me of a batch of home brew I made with fenugreek.......lightly carbonated.....caramel taste present.....a slight tartness at the back end....at first I wasn’t sure but the taste kinda grew on me....

KeefOz (1464) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUN 1, 2016
BB 02.10.2016. Poured a hazy medium amber/brown colour (darker than usual for a Hefe) with a three-finger off-white frothy head that retained well (diminished under five minutes) and laced poorly plus with a few yeasty sediments. Carbonation low to moderate with medium bubbles. Aroma of caramel malt, soft sweet banana and subtle cloves; not as fruity as other Hefes. Taste of moderately sweet banana and cloves and a hint of dark fruits/raisins. Light to medium body. Soft, smooth and slightly dry with mild but sweet banana and a hint of cloves on the finish. Good.

On tap @ Weisses Bräuhaus, Starkbierzeit 2016. Üvegesbe jobban ízlett, ez olyan savanykás, kb mint a hordó alja. Színe is iszapos.

Echon (306) - Århus, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2016
Reddish brown and light-bodied. Fruity aroma and light fruity flavour. Mild, somewhat dry taste, with moderate acidity and low bitterness. Overall, a dull experience. I do not appreciate dryness and acidity together, no matter the beer style. I guess weissbiers are not for me.
