3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle [I’m deeply indebted to David for this one]. Hazy golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Fruity, wheaty, slightly herbal and yeasty spicy aroma, notes of banana, some clove, cautious hints of mustard and tarragon, a touch of orange. Taste is rather dry, wheaty, minimally tart, slightly spicy yeasty, minimally bready and strawy, a lemon and orange touch, cautious banana basis; gentle, minimally too flat carbonation. Excellent handling and wonderful balance of sweet, tart, and dry components.

I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours a hazy golden color with a nice white head and lacing. The aroma is bread and spice. The taste is wheat, spice, and orange. The palate is very nicely carbonated. This is very good.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
BOD 3/2/15. Pours a slightly hazy golden. Outstanding head volume, normal lacing and retention.
World class nose of clove, light banana and hints of pepper over a base of wheat and pale malt.
Heavy light body, which is normal for the style, with a very smooth texture. Superbly carbonated with a rich prickly effervescence from the middle on.
The flavor profile is borderline world class due to a slight lack of complexity. While intense and well balanced, it is clove focused and other hefeweizen aspects are rather subdued, such as banana. It begins with clove phenolics and they remain through the finish. The middle brings very slight banana, a nice grainy wheat aspect and only a hint of hops - no real bitterness to speak of. The finish is a slowwwww fade of the clove phenolic.
