2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
When I bought this one I had great expectations... But eventually it was too mediocre. Dark brown color with thick light brown foam. Bitter earthy taste but quite easy going for a bockbeer. As I said before I expected a lot more so I wouldn’t recommend it. It’s just my opinion though...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Wine and Cheese Place in Clayton. Pours hazy yellow-gold with a big rocky white head that leaves some lacing behind. Aroma of banana, clove, wheat, yeast, floral notes, and coriander- not unlike a traditional German hefewezen on the nose. Banana also leads the flavor, with wheat and yeast, as well as spices and herbal notes. Medium bodied, with active carbonation. Wheaty mouthfeel. Nice balance, good beer.

Poured into a flute with a medium yellowy head. Aromas of malts and chocolate were prominent. The taste was yeasty at first and ended with malty aftertaste. I enjoyed it very much.

Bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a large fluffy white head. Nice big banana and wheat with a nice musky yeast note that shows up as it warms. Simple but clean. Medium bodied, light banana and wheat. Finishes with a bit of warming alcohol and a touch of banana.
