A light but nice banana aroma. Well, the German brewer knows what he’s doing with this one. Light and some banana but not too much. Very fit for the summer or session drinking.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured up at the brewpub with hazy deep gold body and nice off white head. The aroma offers up a nice load of banana, cloves and then some bubble gum at the end of the draw. The taste is nice and complex for the style where there is banana front to back but notes of lemon and malt graininess enter to midway. Into the finish the banana persists but is joined by some bubble gum and cloves. I dig this hefe.
