4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2009 Bottle courtesy of Philip. Hazy gold pour, lots of cloudiness, with a head that tops most, that is beige, and lasts for a while. Not what I was expecting in the aroma at all. I was expecting a banana whallop, but instead I’m getting a yeasty punch with a smack of cloves and spices to folow it up. Very much a clove flavour, with spices, some fruit, and creamy oranges. Smooth finish, with lingering wheat finish. Thanks so much Phil, I’m glad I got to try it finally.

This is a good hefeweizen, but I still rather stick with a fraziskaner. Cloudy golden, slight aroma of fruit, taste is a bit wheaty, maybe a hint of banana.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden unclear, very fast disappearing white head leaving thick laces; A little citrus in a otherwise clove, yeast dominated nose; Little acidy in the body but great carbonation (not all that big in comparison with other weizen beers), very little power; Long, but watery finish with lots of clove and some late acidity.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
0.5 L bottle, ’bbe’ Sep 06. Light veiled dark golden with a fine sparkle. The head is not huge yet stable and quite lacy. The aroma is yeasty, floral, orangey, also slightly sulfurish and acidic. Very round and full taste, slightly acidic. There is an elegant, fruit stone or nut-like bitterness in the aftertaste. Yeast notes appear when the beer warms up. Full body, lively palate, dry finish. Great balance.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled, 500ml. Lemon gold cloudy, bubbly head. Initially thin and light on the pallate, making a search for flavours imperaive. Then comes cloves and banana, a boiled sweet note with pear drops. All very well, but it is a mish mash of flavours which never gives the impression of beer.
