Poured with a deep white head that slowly diminished but some head lasted throughout. Little lacing. Strong smells of banana, with some mango and dough. Great lemon, hoppy flavor. Light body. Great for the warm afternoon.

Medium yellow color with a slight orange hue. Think head and citrusy aroma. Nice bubbly body, with flavors of lemon, cirtus, bananas and honey. Pleasant tart finish.

Poured a milky yellow-orange and 50% foam. Sharp banana juice aroma; sweet and frothy .. mellow fruit, yeast (for sure) and a nice tingle on the tongue. Beautiful.

a nice Hefe-Weizen in a rather modern style ... drier and less ’sweety’ than Paulaner or Schneider Weisse, medium bodied .... a perfect thirst quencher for the hot season ....

17oz - Sweet yeast and wheat flavor with hints of lemon and vanilla. A bueatiful pour with a dark yellow body, champange bubbles, and a huge head that leaves no lacing. Flavor matches aroma with a bread dough aftertaste that is slick and smooth. A great hefe for anytime.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice cloudy straw colour straight out of the bottle. A nice white foamy head that gives off some of its great spicey citrusy aroma. Banana is also present in the nose, a sweet wheat fresh bread smell.
The flavour is nice, a pretty little bite in the mouth with more of the initial spice and bread characteristics.
The finish is smooth, abundant carbonation gives it a little extra bite on the swallow. There is some nice bitterness that leaves you wanting more. Very nice.
