Well I must have shaken this one quite a bit as it is very opaque. Bright aroma of the Saphir hops, a little banana, pear. Dry with lots of dusty yeast character, a little alcohol, fresh melony hops. Spritzy carbo. More interesting than awesome. Thanks Joe & Gabe!

500ml bottle-pours a big off white head and cloudy deep orange color. Aroma is creamy banana, apricot citrus-grapefruit and lemon zest-(cascade/Amarillo also?) hops, wheat. Taste is alcohol, fruit, musty and clove. Taste not up to the aroma, but nicer and does follow. Some hops. Dry finish. Good effervescence.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. [thank you, sk8viking]
Poured in my Erdinger Weizen-glass. Poured with a big, beautiful slightly dirty white head - even poured ’correctly’. Very frothy, creamy at the centre and bubbly nearer the glass. The liquid in a deep, deep, golden copper with a slight haze to it, but otherwise clear. A stunning array of bubbles surges towards the head that have only lowered about 1cm while I’ve written all the above :o).
Aroma is quite ’deep’ with lots of wheat, ripe banana, apples, a touch of viniousness and a citric tartness as well. Very creamy mouthfeel, lots of small bubbles, but t still feels rather low in carbonation. But it sticks nicely to my teeth and the inside of my cheeks. Feels wonderful.
At first the taste underwhelms me, feels as if the aroma is better and more complex. It begins like a powerful regular hefe, where wheat, yeast and slight German hops appear. But as it warms up, and I balance it around in my mouth, lots of other things happen. The ripe fruit, sweet with banana at the forefront, are more pronounced. The hops are more apparent, flowery, peppery and rather bitter, actually. The fruit add a little tartness as well, slightly citric. And there are ginger, vanilla and pepper tones throughout. Wonderful balance, wonderful beer.

sweet malty, slightly fruity, faint bitter from alc. very flavorfull stuff. a bit spicy too. fidelis83 described lots of flavors below, and i agree with almost all of them. i ddin’t really like this beer very much. too high ABV and too much strange flavors going on. like a strong belgian blonde.

It is unclear, warm golden with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of hops, citrus, oranges and yeast. The flavour has sweetness and notes of aromatic hops, oranges, yeast, light banana and clove and in the finish I find notes of grapefruit peel. Very different, well made, but very far from German.

500 ml bottle marked 8.2%. Hazy gold color with frothy 7 finger off-white head. Aromas are primarily citrus and wheat with a fair backing of banana. Near medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is wheat, citrus, clove spice. It’s wild. Tropical fruit comes and goes. Finishes very dry and pretty bitter. Not to mention a bit spicey. It’s a sensational drink.
