Bottle share at Leighton’s - thanks to Fergus. As ’Unertl Oberland Export Weissbier’, 5.2%. Hazy opaque orange, lightly sparkling, small foamy off-white head. Aroma is sweet and malty, sweetcorn, white chocolate. Body is light, tingly carbonation, a bit foamy. Taste is more typical of a weiss - straw, clove and banana ester, light metallic finish. It grew on me quite a lot.
