Pours from bottle as though a brown ale were simultaneously poured into a pilsner. Nice yeast notes on the nose. Nice clove balanced by some malt on the tongue. Finish tends to hang around a bit. Nice!

16/08/2011 Ma che siete venuti a fà (tap). Color miele, torbida, bel cappello di schiuma bianca, morbida e abbastanza persistente. Al naso sentori di lievito, frumento, frutta (banana), leggero agrumato e spezie. In bocca morbidissima, incredibilmente ben bilanciata, dolciastra, con note di frumento, frutta, lieviti. Buon corpo, cremosa al palato, carbonazione soft. Magnifica.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16.9 oz. bottle- Pours a cloudy orange, which is surprising, I was expecting it to be darker, it has a thick pillowy white head. The aroma is very yeasty, banana, some clove and a little pepper. The taste is sharp and tart, followed by a mild mellow banana yeasty flavor. Body is medium to almost full, carbonation is high. Overall I did like the hefe alot better, but its still nice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Large banana presence with lots of citrus and cloves. Bread also features and overall this is a nice herbal aroma. Some minor hints of alcohol too.
Cloudy yellow with tinges of orange. Forms a massive, foamy white head that has excellent retention.
Solid banana & clove taste to this one upfront that is perfectly balanced.Good overall sweetness & the taste is clean with no trace of alcohol.
Medium bodied & with a smooth, creamy texture that is quite clean & crisp. Nice dryness to the finish.
An excellent wheat beer, it has a solid, well balanced flavour and some good banana notes that work well to mask the high abv.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at The Caley Sample Rooms. Pours a cloudy blonde colour with a huge white head. Big banana nose with cloves and wheat. Super clovey flavour with banana, wheat, yeast and chewy caramel. Dry with a foamy mouth-feel. Moderate carbonation and some CO2 prickle. At first I thought the alcohol was quite well masked, however, this became more prominent the more I drank. Great though!

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2011 Re-rating 5.8.2011: Yeasty, fruity smell. Pale yellow-greyish colour. Thick, lasting head. Aroma very yeasty. Taste somewhat sweet. Soft carbonation. All in all a bit lighter than it could be, but one of the finer weizenbocks available.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a footed pilsner. Appearance is a hazy copper to gold with an almost purple hue to it. Interesting look to it. Huge billowing white head rests atop the brew. Aroma is full of dark fruits, sweet grassy notes, abundant esters. Taste is super sweet bananas, slight bubblegum note, touch of spicy cloves. Tingly and slightly stingy mouthfeel. Loads going on in this beer. I like it a lot.
