2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(50 cl bottle) Reddish-brown colour, beige head, very hazy. Aroma is roasted, caramel, cloves/spices, a touch of resin. Taste is lightly bitter, bitterness getting stronger in the finish, and light to medium sweet. Texture/mouthfeel is rather thick and heavy. It also seems more alcoholic than it is. Finish is a little bitter and lacks aroma. Drinkable, but - for my taste - not well-balanced.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Amber, cloudy, average and mostly diminishing light brown head. Moderate, malty – lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish aroma, some caramel and faint roasted malt, faint banana. Body is medium, malty – lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel and faint banana. Finish is short to average, malty – lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and faint bread, light banana with faint yeast. Nothing special - not too sweet though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle looks simple but really good. Beer in the glass quite dark, nice head. Starts malty, strong, fine yeasty. Hints of caramel. A bit earthy. Soft-malty finish, a bit sourish with fruity berry notes. Interesting!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Deep brown colour, light milky, with low creamy steady head and medium to smooth body. Nose of dark malt. Taste of old nuts, dark bread, malt, roasted brown sugar and rich yeast. Easy to drink but just not that nice and quaffable. Average.

Ganz reif die Banane ! Sehr fruchtig kommt dieses dunkle Weizen daher, ohne uns umzuhauen, aber dennoch wie ein fluessiger Obstsalat aus reifen Fruechten. Nicht schlecht, nicht herausragend - einfach nett.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Careful on the pour, even with a slow tilt, it had a gigantic creamy head. Aroma is dark bread, a hint of chocolate, dried fruit, toast. Taste is pumpernickel, raisin toast, prune. Color is dark brown with thick, creamy beige head. Just enough sediment in the bottle to make it slightly murky. Slightly lingering palate and medium weight.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2013 Murky brown colour, thick light beige head. Aroma of banana, caramel, candy and rain water. Quite sweet flavour, coffee and milk, banana and cacao. Rather thin body, finish sweet coffee and malts.
Decent beer, though the initial aroma wasn’t too promissing.
(From 50cL bottle @ joes. Thanks for sharing!)

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ joes. Murky brown colour with a huge beige head. Smells a bit farty, slightly glue, malts, mint. Tastes coffee, slightly roasty, even some chocolate.. Amazingly surprising taste. Didn’t expect this at all. Medium body, soft carbo.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Cloudy red-orange, golden brown head. Berrylike fruity, roasted and minerally aroma. Rye bread brains, berries (blue,raspberry), banana, roast, spices and minerals, at first it comes over as a bit ragged, but it soom mellows out into a moreish and creamy light wheatbock-like flavor. Nice.
