3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Streckers, 28/02/14. I was initially given samples of all beers by a girl behind the bar. The brewer then showed up and told me that the tap line she used runs a little warm so he gave me another pour from a different tap line and the beer was a few numbers higher for me. For reference it was the bank nearest the entrance that was running a little too warm. I digress ...
Hazed orange amber with a well appointed off white head that stays for the party.
Nose is clove, noffee pie, spice, nana.
Taste comprises banana, wheaten bread, touch of vanilla, spices, toffee, cloves.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, drying close.
Solid enough hefe that rose from an initial 3.0 on a second try.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
This is head & shoulders above their other beers, it has a nice cloudy gold color with a foamy white head. A classic hefeweizen look. A nice spicy clove aroma that is appetizing. A nice mouthfeel with banana & cloves makes for a refreshing beer. The best of the 55DKK tasting set in my book.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smaksrekke på Vesterbro Bryghus: denne var den siste, og endelig en med en tydelig profil! Kraftig aroma av banan og nellik. Smaken byr i tillegg på ananas og et florlett pepperdryss. Middels munnfylde som gjør den lettdrikkelig. Kjempelang ettermsak. den beste av de 5.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy golden color with a white head. Very heavy on the clove notes with a bit of banana sweetness. Some citrus peel and a bready maltiness. Mild bubblegum as well. The flavor is fairly sweet with a bunch of bread and wheat notes along with some bubblegum and banana. A mild citrus and plenty of clove spiciness, maybe a hint of coriander as well. Pretty decent wheat beer.
