3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Guess I should’ve checked the label on this before I bought it .. in German, says best before 26 Feb 05. Oops. Anyway, this poured a hazy orange-yellow with a creamy white head. The aroma is lemony, citrusy and hints at a creamy consistency. The flavors are fruity, lightly springy, like a banana-cream pie. OK ... I’ll use "creamy" a fourth time when I describe the mouthfeel. This has held up well despite its age ... maybe the frothy body is a result of the unintended cellaring? (#3099, 9/18/2007)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Creamy white head over a cloudy golden-hued body. Full aroma - wheaty, yeasty and bready. The flavor is well-balanced and filled with wheat and a hint of citrus. Quite tasty overall. Full body for a wheat beer, but a little thin and incomplete in the finish. Otherwise, quite good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very hazy yellow with an orange tint - frothy, lasting head - very lemony aroma, with touches of wheat and other grains, and very subdued banana and phenolics - quite light and crisp, with prickly carbonation - wheat, yeast and lemon dominate the rather subtle flavor, and the overpowering banana and clove I’ve come to expect from the style is not present at all, which is a very welcome change - light grain through the middle, finishing quite clean and dry, with just the slightest bit of spice lingering - nicely done.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
The aroma has notes of wheat, banana, corn and yeast, and so does the flavour, where I find the typical sweetness. IMO the corn note disturbs the overall impression, so I’m not so fond of this one.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2007 Bottled 0,50L. Creamy and compact head, much frothy and persistence. Orange clearly color, a lot hazy and muddy with optimal and fine fizz. Fresh and fruity scent; notes of lemon, banana, wheat, must and cereals. Extremely lively and prickly taste. Much fresh and drinkable with optimal scents of wine cellar, lemon and must. Sweetish and lightly alcoholic on a long and pleasant end.
