3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy, dull gold pour with a thin white head. Aroma is much sweeter than expected, I saw the word "hefeweizen" and assumed it would be all banana and clove, but there is a strong caramel and burnt sugar punch to it. Itís almost like a banana split. Like a hefe sundae. Taste definitely has that banana note in it, but has a sort of chocolatey flavor behind it. Some clove flavor, notes of tangy wheat grain, plum, pears, and some more fruity banana esters on the finish. Palate is full, slick and creamy like any wheat-based beer should be. Very nuanced and not quite what I was expecting. I bought this hoping to explore the underappreciated hefewiezen, but ended up getting more of a pale colored weizen bock. Still quite good, though.

50cl bottle. A little too much hop for my taste, but itís not bad at all! The Schneider Brewery always surprises me!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy orange-golden with a white, well-retaining head. Impressive amount of sediment suspended throughout the beer. Citrus, banana, and a hint of clove on the nose. Heavy mouthfeel for the style. Mild carbonation. Citrus flavor dominates and persists through to the finish. Banana notes as well. Fruity sourness attempts to compete with the sweetness.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
[backlog] 07-11-15 // 500ml bottle at home. Pours a murky dark orange beer. Hoppy nose. Strong yeasty body, with some banana. But then overweighs a nice tropical fruity hoppiness. Light bitter. Complex and really good.

bottle. Hazy orange with medium white head. Aroma: citrus, grape, banana, yeast, bubblegum. Taste: citrus, honey, forest fruit, juicy. Medium to full body. Dry finish. Good bitterness and fresh hoppiness make it very interesting beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Piwo lekko metne w zlotym kolorze z biala dosc trwala piana. W aromacie sa dojrzale owoce jak mango, brzoskwinie i cytrusy. W smaku jest na pewno dosc slodko i karmelowo, sa banany, pomarancze i drozdze. Wysycenie i goryczka na srednim poziomie. Alkohol pimimo sporej dawki wogole niewyczuwalny. Bardzo dobry przedstawiciel swojego gatunku.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Translucent, nearly opaque matte golden yellow with a mid sized white head that dissipates abruptly. Potent aroma with notes of peach, orange, citrus, yeast, caramel, and hops. Full bodied and eminently smooth. Initial taste is fruit forward peach and orange coalescence with perhaps vanilla as well, and finish is a rather sweet citrus vanilla flavour accompanied by a slight hop. Robust and flavourful, but slightly too sweet and malty for my liking.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A 500ml bottle with a best before date of 1st February 2017 and poured into a Riedel weizen glass. It poured a rather dull and cloudy orange copper colour with a two finger white head that had decent retention and eventually settled to a thin creamy layer and left nice lacing. Aromas were strong floral and herbal notes with orange pith and orange peel and a touch of bready malts. Tastes quite similar to the aroma with strong orange pith and orange juice flavours followed by grapefruit, floral, herbal and grass with a hint of spice, mango and bitterness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall I can see why others might enjoy Tap 5, but for me, Iím on the fence with this one; maybe even leaning slightly towards buying it again as it is very easy to drink and does not feel anywhere near the 8.2% abv. My main conflict was the strong floral aromas and flavours which were not my favourite.
