3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The sort of effortless quality that a brewer can toss off after several centuries of practice. A great-looking beer - cloudy lemon colour with a huge wash of foam. The striking aroma of dusty wheatsacks induced a Proustian scent memory of summer childhoods spent on a friend’s farm. Also mashed banana and clove. Lovely creamy body. Very well integrated for a 7.7% abv bock - would never have guessed it was that strong. Sticky banana and wheat malt with an acidic finish. Quenching and moreish. (500ml bottle from Leura Cellars.

FCBF 09. What a nice treat at the brew fest to find a weizen bock! Hazy, orange, very nice looking. Banana/clove, big yeast component. Very enjoyable.

Enjoyed with my mates from the Barossa Brewers Club this beer pours mit-hefe and has the banana, clove aroma of the hefe-weisen but its not as pronounced. The palate is chewy and rich and the higher alcohol gives the beer a juiciness. Very nice beer!

Radegast: humpen: Massive beer poured into a massive dimpled mug! Slightly hazy bright orange/ coppper pour leavin 2 fingers of white, dry head. The nose is complex, bananas for sure, yeasts and sugars, som bitter notes as well. The taste is equally complex: the banana tones up front, giving way to spice, through cloves maybe pepper... gives the sweet balance. The finish is a mix of the sweet/ spice with a slight touch of alcohol. Great brew.

German bottle into a pint glass. Solid example of the style. Nice malt back and sweet deliciousness... good stuff!

Bottle vioa the rip and run. Two inch head settles upon the evenly cludy honey gold elixer. Remaining quarter inch head is renewed steadily by relaxed carbonation until end. No lacing to speak of. Nose of reserved spice. Tounge is washed with gentle pepper, cloves, and then the honeyed malts emerge. Mellow muted medium body. These cats have the unpretentious quality presentation down to a science. Gonna go get me some more of this.

Great, banana-yeast aroma. Twangy, simple syrup sweetness, nice bittering. The alcohol is edgy. Reminded me a good bit of Don de Dieu. Pretty clean, bitter finish. Nice label, moderately cloudy, murky yellow. New Leaf Market.
