2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Looks good; solid off-white foam holds at almost an inch thick. Body a sparkling (?) ruddy chestnut with streaming, fine carbonation. Lipsmacking, sultry, dessert-esque nose just exudes caramelised bananas, fresh baked banoffee pie and biscuity rich, sweet malt with just a vague spicy note. Well spiced palate. Rye is evident and it is deeply phenolic. Lean in body but foamy in feel. Quite watery overall. Banana is a backdrop. Good length but it is still just shy and timid. All in the background. Like drinking watery herbal tea, not quite there. The aroma is a winner, but it is a let down for flavour. Meh! (50cL, BB 04/10/13, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5l bottle from OB Sydney. Looks like a Schneider Weisse Original with a cloudy brown body and average-sized cream-white head for the style (if you consider this to be a wheat beer). Nose has strong over-ripe bananas and caramel with a softer clove-like spiciness and fresh rye bread in there as well. Flavour is medium sweet with a subtle dry smokiness to the finish and a light bitterness. Palate is spritely with a medium body. I consider this beer to be a satisfactory dunkelweizen but no more.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Smell of hard bread, black pepper and foam banana. Similar taste. The rye doesn’t quite punch through but you get a hint.
