3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brought back from Germany by my daughter. Dirty orange brown and. A soapy almost white head that has good retention. Cloves and banana nose. Flavor begins with a bit of chocolate which is a surprise. The cloves, banana soon settle in with some bubblegum. This is both nice and authentic.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of citrus, banana, clove, and a hint of banana. It pours a cloudy dull orange with a large creamy white head with great retention that leaves behind some nice lacing. The flavor starts with citrus and faint banana. The finish had light clove and a touch of bubblegum. Medium bodied with somewhat lively carbonation.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Wässrig-säuerlicher Antrunk, zum Mittelteil kurz leicht hefig und spritzig. Wie gesagt nur kurzfristig, dann folgt eine sehr wässrige Vorstellung, lascher Nachgeschmack. Gänzlich misslungen.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml swing-top bottle. Served in a weizen glass, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with a two inch frothy white head. Head retention is pretty good, but there isn’t much lacing at all. Aroma is cloves, banana and wheat. Nice smelling brew. It tastes like wheat, cloves, and a bit of bubblegum. Not as nice as the aroma, but still decent. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s smooth and is well carbonated (maybe a bit too much). I think it’s a decent brew, but not one of the best hefe’s I’ve tried. With that being said, it’s worth a try.
