Banana-like beer with a bit of spiciness. The aroma, sour and rotten, turned me off and really impacted the enjoyability of this beer. The flavor was smooth and nice, and I probably could have liked it more. But, ooooh that smell.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 35,5 cl. Hazy and opaque yellow with a dense, off-white head. Very sweet banana and yeast in the nose. Medium body, sweet banana and yeast again - no real tartness or phenols. A mild, smooth and pleasant Hefe, but I’m not sure I understand what all the fuss is about. 100709

Diolch Mr JoeMcPhee for this bottle. Nice hazy orange colour with a thin white lace. Fruit aroma with hints of herb, wheat, banana and clove. Smooth texture yet leaves a tingle on the tongue. Strong influence of banana in the flavour , hint of spice. Nice beer and the best hefe I’ve had in a while. Solid beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yeasty aroma with some sour smells. Swirling hypnotizing sediment wheat beer pour. Fairly well mannered wheat spice beer initially. Just a thin head. Decent wheat beer character, fun and interesting. Taste grows on you. Becomes even more mannered as the session continues. Very nice creamy carbonation. Some bitterness builds toward the end of the session. Over all good beer experience.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Moderate malt aromas of light bread and grain, light flowers for the hops, moderate musty basement for the yeast, with hints of banana and clove. Head is small, frothy, white, with a scant amount of lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky yellow/amber. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter, and a toush sour. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, watery yet a litttle slick and has a soft carbonation. A little middle-of-the-roadish, but still a well crafted German Hefeweizen.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is wheat malt, toasted, slightly spicy, banana, and bubble gum. The flavor has the toasted wheat malt base with bananas and citrus fruit, clove, bubble gum that grows as it warms, and a slight smokiness. It is at the same time chewy and smooth. It’s nice to see that this is in the regular rotation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy yellow, some banana and sweetened lemon juice aroma. First sip is sweet like fresh bread, finishes dry and toasty. That leaves room in the glass to pour out the sediment from the bottle which creates increased density in the glass and aroma. Deeper in the sip as well with a creamier body, still fairly dry in the finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle, pours a light a tangerine color with a white head. Smells like banana bread...I can’t wait to take a drink. Very light feel, quite refreshing. A light banana and nutty taste, I don’t usually enjoy wheat beers but this is scrumptious. This would probably be a great beer on a hot day after dealing with asshole clients all day. Surprising and delicious.
