Murky, drown, rusty body with a large, rocky beige head. The aroma is banana, clove, dough and light black cherry. Flavor is ripe banana, very light clove, some bread, ginger and light molases and cola. Medium body is round with moderate/high carbonation, almost sparkling with fine bubbles. Very enjoyable.

Yet another drinkable wheat beer. I am not a fan of most but there are a couple that are quite nice, This beer has a darkish, cloudy appearance, almost malty flavor and great finish. If you don’t like heffeweissbier, try this one

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sweet and spicy aroma of clove, coriander, and banana of moderate strength. Amber color with a thick frothy yellowish head. It’s cloudy, but not as much as I expected. Rather acidic at first with dry grain flavor. It was rather bland when cold, but the flavor of cheerios gets stronger as it warms. Completely yeast free flavor. I would prefer drinking it from a pub glass. Welcome hop finish. Full of surprises.

Bottle. Brown with a fully lasting head. Aroma of banana/cloves. Flavor is a balance of sweet, sour and a little bitter. There is some caramel malt flavor as well. Watery palate. Very drinkable. I found it to be a little bland compared to their regular hefeweissbier. Still good though.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Clear light brown color like a cream soda. Medium head that mostly fades but a small covering remains throuhout the session. Sweet malty aroma with strong lemon zest. Airy light palate that refeshed the tognue. Robust malty flavor fuller than the Hefewiezen but otherwise contains the same citrus feel. A more pronounced hop flavor that makes this a great balanced beer. A thousand years of brewing and they are still going strong.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours not too cloudy (lots of sediment stuck to the bottom of the bottle) Munich brown. Continuous carbonation feeds pillowy beige head and good lacing. Nose is banana, cloves, and a little sour. Taste is balance with malt and hops. Light to medium body, finishes somewhat sour. Nothing too special, but nothing I don’t like.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Kinda uggly tint of brown, smallish beige head. Fruity nose, with a little banana. Surprisingly bitterish and sour, a little burnt with dark chocolate. Crispy carb. A bit on the bitter side rather than sweet. Good.

Berlin Trip beer No.7. Now we’re getting somewhere! After some average schwartz beers and a bland Kolsch this is more like it. On draft at the Weihenstephan cafe, Hackescher Markt, Berlin. Served in the lovely tapering glass. A translucent chocolatey brown with a large creamy head. Smooth orange peel, lemon zest flavours give way to hints of spice and malt. A long zingy finish. A grand beer.
