3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(1L bottle from brauhaus) Cloudy amber body with a thick off white head. Much much more yeasty than any other dunkelweizen I’ve ever had. The yeast flavor kind of reminds me of a belgian beer so this weizen is different. Smell is big yeast with some banana and clove. Taste is the same with good wheat notes. Enjoyable but not typical in my opinion.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the Brewpub. It pours cloudy brown with a small beige head. The nose is earth, toasty, bruised banana, wheat and caramel. The taste is caramel, toffee, wheat, toast, banana, sultana and banoffee pie with a dry, somewhat earthy finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Smooth, rounded and pretty easy-going.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
On draught at the brewery.
Extremely cloudy, like very muddy water.
Nose: in Dutch I would say "puttekesgeur" (unpleasant sulfur element, stale water) and something metallic.
Taste: actually much better than the nose suggested. Surprisingly pleasant. Wheat of course, banana, caramel and a hint of mango.
Overall: the nose was very off. I can’t imagine this is what the brewer intended: something must have gone wrong with this beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl draught at Vetter’s Heidelberg. Very cloudy brownish colour with a thick nice off-white head that persists. Aroma is roasted malts and banana notes. Medium to low carbonation and full body. Flavour is a bit sweet with light bitterness and with a dry and long finish. Overall, a very nice beer in a unique place with a very good food to associate with it.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ziemlich trübes dunkelbraun mit ebenfalls braunem Schaum. Ein leicht hefiges Aroma mit etwas Würze nach Nelke. Im Antrunk dann eher dünn geraten. Geschmacklich kaum fruchtig, stattdessen macht sich eine brotige Getreidigkeit breit, die ziemlich sperrig ist und auf die Süffigkeit drückt. Nicht so mein Fall.

Cloudy muddy red brown beer, beige creamy head, unstable, pretty adhesive. Aroma: quite some overripe banana, milk chocolate. MF: good carbon, medium body. Taste: ripe banana, bit sweet, sugary touch, little bready, brown sugar, almost caramel, little sourish. Aftertaste: bitter hops, caramel, banana, pretty dry ending.

cloudy brown color, some eastery notes, but as exciting as the hell, which is to say not very much.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
1 liter bottle filled from the Brauhaus. Appearance is dark caramel color with a little, bubbly head. Aroma is sweet malts, roast grains, and some banana. Taste is weak with roast malts, some citrus, and faint banana. Palate is hugely disappointing - medium-bodied, watery texture, flat carbonation, and almost zero finishing. The weak palate killed this beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoyed on tap while eating the best Bratwurst of a recent trip to the Baden-Wurttemberg region of Germany, of course at Vettrs in Heidelberg on a beautiful mid 70s day. I didn’t take notes during this one, but I remember it being pretty good. Standard dark cloudy brown appearance, taste went down a little too quickly. Good good stuff.
