Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 10A). Bottle 35.5 cl - batch 082014 C217:39. AROMA: wheat aroma with notes of bubblegum and some banana. APPEARANCE: dark gold color and hazy. thin white head with low retention. TASTE: faint bubblegum, banana and vanilla with a wheat background. low bitterness with a semi-sweet and wheaty finish. PALATE: medium-low body with below average carbonation. OVERALL: a not so bad german-style hefeweizen.

Pours a golden yellow color with no foam head, just a little white lacing. Aroma is cloves and banana. Flavor is slightly sweet wheat, clove, and banana. This is okay, but probably not something I would buy again.

Good yeasty wheat beer poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip. Aroma of a farm in spring. Tasty.

Goldig, trüb. Geruch nach Aprikose, leicht bananig. Im Geschmack auch Hefe. Recht nett, aber auch kein Überflieger.

Sehr extremer Hefegeruch: brotig, schwach nelkig. Geschmack ebenfalls sehr hefig mit Nelke, kaum Banane. Im Nachgeschmack leicht bitter, aber auch nicht ganz so vollmundig, wie man vom Geruch her denken würde.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
BOD 314/14. Pours a cloudy light amber. Outstanding head volume and retention, normal lacing.
Light nose with a hint of clove and banana over biscuit with a light airy touch of citrus notes, possibly orange.
Medium body that is almost creamy. Perfect carbonation that starts with a nice effervescent burst in the middle and a prickly explosion in the finish that imparts a nice little snap.
The flavor profile is world class. Bold in intensity, very complex and balanced to perfection. It begins with a blend of flavors that separate into the finish. A light tart biscuit sweetness arrives first, then banana, bubblegum, lemon/orange, wheat and yeast. Underneath is a clove presence that continuously increases in intensity and dominates the finish. Clove lingers in the somewhat dry finish that is also a bit tart.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy straw with a nice head of tightly packed white bubbles. I don’t give fives for appearance very often but, for this style, it’s nearly perfect. Aroma is lean and fresh: hay, floral, basement aromas, and very light doses of clove, cooked vegetables, ginger, and cough drop. Taste is near balanced with just a slight nod to sour. Thin watery palate with a quick bitter burst finish. Surprised at how good this is!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Pours cloudy pale straw color with little head. Hop aromas compete with the banana, clove, which are all mild. Flavors are laid back. A mix of Bavarian Hefe flavors with a touch of lemons and a slight tartness. Very refreshing, and a nice palate. Not quite up to the true German style, but I would buy more.
