3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ brewery. Lovely even bright white head is lasting and thick, so even it looks like a nitro pour. Sweet but clean aromas. Lots of esters, fruits, flowers. Enough perfume and up front floral flavors. Wheat grain finish is excellent. Great weizen.

Bottle from Tbone, thanks. Soft citrus aroma and flavor. Thin, sharp, apple. Just a touch of yeast towards the finish. Decent, thirst quenching, but not first class.

(Bottle on 2009-05-28) Golden and almost clear. Medium sized and fizzy white head that disappears quite quickly. Fruitiness and lightly banana in aroma. Quite light bodied palate with pretty high carbonation. Light taste with malts, fruitiness, banana and bitterness. Fruity aftertaste.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Hazy golden, very firm fluffy head with strong tight lace. Grainy wheaty aroma with cellar, some wood, ripe banana, lttle sweetish bubblegum and herbal notes. Very grainy flavor with woodiness, wheat, faint diacetyl and sourish citric zest notes. Very dry, tangy herbal finish with strong floorboard and strangely apparent alcohol for a 4,6% beer. Slick soft palate. Pretty strange and kinda unpleasant, though gets a bit better when warmer.
