1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Sampled at Copenhagen Beer Festival 2011. Pours an unclear and yellow beer with a white head. The aroma is malt, fruit, wheat and yeast. The flavor follows the nose with additional sweetness and banana. The palate is sweetness. Overall a boring and very sweet beer.

An easy-drinking sweet hefe. Orange colored with big white head, aroma of yeasts and dog’s breath. Flavor is less yeasty and more grainy, standard flavors present. Different from Aventinus.

This beer didn’t do it for me. To me it just tasted a bit marginal.. Normal. Not very unique in it’s style.

(bottled) I was expecting something like Aventinus , this is way differing and like standard a Hef on booze steroids(i dig their Hef a lot) but this isnt as flavoursome . Rich bananary and sticky palate. Cloying , in a plesant way.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Maruhn, Darmstadt
Mudy orange-golden color; generous head, compact. The aroma is nice, fruity (banana). The body is lean, it is quite highly carbonated, the mouthfeel is very smooth; good malt and wheat flavor, with a moderate residual sweetness, and good balance of spices and fruitiness; the bitterness is quite low. Very harmonious.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a 1 pint bottle. Hazy golden yellow with lots of carbonation. Thin white bubbly head. Thick lacing. Aroma is very strong of orange peel and spices. Makes my mouth water just sitting there.. ok taste; is all spice. Very tingly on the tongue. Leaves the mouth dry. Reminds me of the old orange-julios. Not bad, but not what I expected. The bottle and label was brown.. automatically assumed it was a dark beer. I would buy again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy straw yellow with a beautiful dense two-finger bright white head. Diversity of aromas including clove and other spices, banana, pear, grass/wheat, apple. Variety of flavors as well, with a fruitiness that leaned toward tart granny smiths and bread crust and nuts maltiness. Medium body, tons of carbonation, slightly creamy mouthfeel, and a pleasant tartness in the finish.

500 mL bottle. Pours a very lightly hazed bright golden with a white head. Clove aroma, banana, with a little grassiness, bubble gum, and wheat. Wheat leads the flavor with bubble gum, cloves, apple, and banana. Again some slight hints of grassiness, now with citrus. Pretty nice.
