Pours a cloudy yellow with a foamy, white head. Nose is like a sweet banana candy. Taste is similar to the smell. Sweet and candy-like. Medium body. Vigorous carbonation. Decent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Day 3 of the post Xmas Bamberg Jolly, bottle at Weihenstephaner Am Dom - Freising, 26/01/14. Hazed orange amber with a good sized off white head. Nose is bitter orange, bready notes, banoffee pie, clove. Taste comprises light noffee pie, grainy, straw, sugar. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok light Hefe, looks and feels the part but lacks a little at the business end.

Rune (8047) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2013
500ml thanks to djoeye for sharing. A wheat haze to a golden body. Two-finger sized white head that lasts throughout. Fair lacing. Sweet fruity nose, spiced with clove and coriander. Apple fruity taste joined late banana, spices and wheat . Harsh, short-lived dry fruit ending. A bit thin in the mouth, but quite alright to drink (Tromsø 10.11.2013)

(Bottle, 0.5 l, from supermarket, 20130905) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had banana and grass. Palate was light bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, clove, grass, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste had clove and bitterness. Aroma was quite good but all the flavours were thin and watery. A diluted ordinary Weihenstephan Hefeweizen?

Braastad (420) - FINLAND - MAY 11, 2013
Semi-hazy with eager head. Faint banana and yeast on the aroma. Flavor has even less than the aroma, but much the same. A bit sour aftertaste.
