500 ml bottle in Switzerland. Pours a orange hazy brown color. Full very frothy head almost like whipped cream. A fantastic looking beer! Aroma is yeast, cloves and banana. Taste is much the same. Palate is mellow and nice. A very good Hefe. A little off the normal German type but really nice.

Bottle courtesy of Bierkrug - thanks again. Aroma: bananas, sugar, a bit musty somehow. Taste follows suit - cloves, by with the same musty front.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (kindly delivered by Quack-Duck!): Deep golden, cloudy, big beaten egg-white-like stable off-white head; first bubble-gum and bananas, later yeast and lemons in the nose; moderate to solid sweet-sourish flavour, almost medium bodied, smooth; increasing sourish-lemony fruitiness in the mild wheaty/bananey finish. Chapeau: a very nice Weizen.....

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
from bierhütte.ch - pours a hazy dark copper-orange colour with a long lasting foam; nice lacework; cloves dominate the nose leaving hay and banana in the background; moderate carbonation for the style, very sweet, fizzy finish with more notes of cloves and hay - not bad at all
