Bottle. Hazy golden yellow pour with thick yellow head. Aroma bread, banana, spicy notes, and dough. Fairly sweet with a good balance of sourness and plenty of CO2 to give it a lively mouth feel.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 50cl. Surprisingly pale appearance. Creamy palate. Definitely a flawless beer. Probably better in summer. Not my kind of style though.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours cloudy gold with a dense white head which fades away to a thin wisp. Aroma is beautiful - pears, banana, cloves, nutmeg, vanilla, and a bunch of other complex notes I can’t quite make out. The beer is full and prickly with high carbonation in the mouth. Clove and banana meld well with fresh baked bread and candied nuts. A very good beer. I’d rate it more highly still, but for the fact that it’s a little disappointingly like an overgrown hefeweizen.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
500 ml bottle pours a hazy, light golden body with a giant fluffy white head. Aroma of wheat, cloves, citrus spice and a bit of banana. Taste is multi-layered: Bready, yeast, wheat and cloves. Finishes with some pear, slight honey sweetness, bit of alcohol and a mild, short bitterness. Medium carbonation, but has a smooth, soft body. Much more flavor and body than belies the hazy, golden pour!!

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...
