3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught Very good dense light yellowish head over fully hazy orange-yellow beer. Clove, fruitesters (some banana, some citrus), but clove/allspice is all-dominant. Light acidity, much wheat underneath, grainy. Babyfood mash. Warming up, more banana. Wheatslickness & yeastfill, good body, very carbonated. Clove is a tad too dominant, but the finish brings it all together well.

50cl bottle (5.2% abv) @ Timo A.
Pours hazy yellow color with a medium sized head. Quite spicy on the nose, wheat, some citric fruits, not so much banana, quite aggressive. Pleasant fruity flavor, some yeast, wheat and mild toffee notes. A good palate cleanser.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Apples, bananas and cloves converge on soft wheat in this effervescent Weissbier.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the cloudy blond-beige.
-High carbonation alleviates the sweetness.
-The apple-like fruitiness was surprising. Not sure it’s what I prefer in this type of brew, but it does add a different touch.
-This was nicely drinkable and personable.
