3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed 2/19/13. 16.9 fl oz bottle into a weizen glass.
A: Pours a typical cloudy gold color. This doesn’t have an amazing head for the style, but it’s still a two finger white shade with decent retention and a good creaminess to it.
S: Fairly banana-heavy, with some crisp wheat and bubblegum esters. Touches of clove and coriander also come through. Aromatically, it’s well done, but not a standout in the style.
T: Pleasantly mellow banana esters start things off. The finish is mild wheat malt and the faintest ’ping’ of earthy noble hops, but perhaps my favorite feature is the note of milky cream that ties the midtaste It’s not particularly bold, inspiring, or complex, but like I said - pleasantly mellow.
M: I could use a creamier finish here - the astringency is a bit too coarse for my tastes. Having said that, this ticks many good qualities I expect from the style: nice dryness/crispness, light in its texture, high (not overbearing) carbonation, and superb drinkability.
O: Good stuff. Don’t know what else to say apart from this being a solidly good weizen.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Del Giorno, Riomaggiore. Hazy orange body with a thin white head. Aroma of orange, mushy green apple and yeast. Flavour of chalk, orange, lime and faint notes of metal and white pepper. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. The flavour isn’t as concentrated as the best Hefeweizens but this is pretty tasty.
