4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500ml bottle from Gourmondo.de. Hazy dark yellow colour, mdium rocky/frothy mostly lasting off-white head, good lacing. Aroma of banana, grapefruit, orange peel, passion fruit, dough and white pepper, well balanced between heavily malty and heavily hoppy. Taste is initially bittersweet and moderately acidic, turning into a long bitter finish with a moderately alcoholic feel. Full body, oily texture, lively carbonation. Aroma was amazing, taste decent, alcohol could’ve been a bit less noticeable. Wonderful and somewhat different approach to wheat beer none the less.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from AmmersinO, Vienna. Pale orange, hazy body, with a medium, creamy, white head. Amazing, complex and unique aroma of wild berries, mango, citus, banana, orange, tangerine, sweet malts, clove and other spices, grains, estery and slightly alcoholic. Taste follows this seemlessly, complex, pretty heavy and greatly balanced between fruity, spicy, malty and bitter hop notes. Mouthfeel is medium, oily, with a lively carbonation and it finishes fruity, spicy and alcohol warming. One of those rare beers, that enhances a style to a new, unique level! A heavy, filling Weizenbock, with wonderful, dominant hop notes, like I don’t know another, but propably not for everyones taste, as it really is an uncompromising brew, that doesn’t follow the rules of this beer style. One of my favourite beers!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle @ Altes Maedchen , Hamburg. Birra ambrata riflessi aranciati, opalescente schiuma bianca, fine, persistente. Aroma fruttato, agrumato (pompelmo ed arancia rossa), speziato di chiodo di garofano, erbaceo da luppolo aromatico. Gusto dolce abboccato, abbastaza acida, piuttosto amara. Fruttato, ritrovo il pompelmo rosa, erbaceo, resinoso, pepata. Poco corposa molto carbonata, equilibrata ed armonica.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Gooden in Taipei, drank at Rao He night market. Aroma is phenolic (cloves) with some alcohol but quite faint - presence of banana makes it very sweet. Tastes like a hefeweizen with added hops, a slightly spicy finish (though that might just be from the 大腸包小腸 I ate at the same time). Body has very foamy bubbles as expected from a hefe but kind of thin for such high carbonation. Pretty much as advertised - a hoppy hefe, if a bit too airy/foamy.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Gooden Taipei. Hoppy wheat-y aroma, as you'd expect. Big effervescent hefe palate with piney hoppiness. Spicy bittern finish that lingers. Nice to have the extra hoppiness in this type of beer but probably wouldn't get again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange with a puffy white head. Aromas of orange juice, spices and dry grain. Richly flavoured, this is a big beer with juicy orange, sour wheat, but also sweet crystalised ginger and glace fruit. Lipsmacking and tart.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Wholefood High Street Kensington. Beautiful looking beer. Rich hazy amber, with a soft white foam head, which leaves creamy lacing on the glass. Nose is toffee and caramel and some quite acidic, spiky green leafy hops. Berry fruit, raspberry, yeasty fruity esters. Taste is all of the above and it’s a quite eclectic mix. Creamy caramel, yeasty fruity red berry esters, and acidic green leafy hops.
