2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at Brauerei Trunk in Aug, 2014: Hazed golden with an orangish tinge. Fluffy rocky white foam. Dull nose of saltwater taffy, unripe peach, bubblegum, flowers and and plastic bag. Seltzery carbonation distributes a foamy residue on the palate. Sourish bite of fruitiness yields to clingy banana taffy notes and sharper plasticlike phenolics. Floral Hallertau softness beneath it all, which fends off most of the suggestive circus peanut flavors. Some apple juice slickness surfaces late and amplifies the soured fruit elements. Finishes fuzzily malty and muddled with a hint of taffy and sugared peaches. Overall a fairly muddled weizenbier that has a sourness to it which spoils it for me. Forgettable, as with their kellerbier.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle looks simple but okay. Beer in the glass zippy, almost no head. Starts very yeasty, dry, fruity like lemon, sourish. Finish unbalanced and still too yeasty. Not my favourite.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Good Spirits Co. Glasgow (500ml, £2.80):
Rich banana and clove aroma to start with some citrus undertones and a combination of wheat, yeast and lighter fruits with a little bread too. The smell is pretty refreshing with some sweetness and a tiny amount of bubblegum.
Bright orange, lighter towards the bottom. Cloudy with a foamy, inch tall head, holds well with almost no reduction.
Banana and clove upfront with some background citrus and fruit. The wheat is easily detected too and there is a light, hoppy spice to round things off with.
Smooth & medium with strong carbonation. There is a slight citrus tang and some fruity sweetness but the balance is good and the beer is very easy to drink.
My first new German hefeweizen in a while and after the first sip I knew it had been too long, this one is an excellent beer and quickly reminded me of what I had been missing. The mouthfeel was a particular highlight with a great balance between flavours & great carbonation too.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hellgelb, leicht trüb, Schaum mittlerer Standzeit. Fruchtig-würziges Aroma nach Melone, Mandarine und Gewürznelke. Recht wenig Kohlensäure, sehr weiches Brauwasser, gute Süffigkeit. Der fruchtige Anfang geht schnell über in einen langen nelkig-herben Abgang. Gefällt mir gut.
