S_Side_Smitty (602) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Pours orange-brown & cloudy with a thick off white head. Aroma is sweet & estery with banana-clove and spices. Taste is heavy banana-clovey magnificence and very very smooth. There’s some faint prickly bitterness laced with spice in the mid that smooths out again at the finish. Rich and decadent overall. Nice.

Saeglopur (1113) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - AUG 18, 2015
500 ml bottle from a supermarket.

Aroma of bread, dried fruits, ripe banana, spices, some nuts.
Tastes of bread, spices, banana, dried fruits, some caramel.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes spicy, bready, fruity, malty.

Very nice. Quaffable, well balanced and fully aromatic. Not on par with my favourite Dunkelweizen from Ayinger, but a very good example of the style.
