3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very slightly hazed medium yellow with a tall fluffy white head that has great retention. Aroma is strong banana, yeast, vanilla pudding, lemon, wheat and sweet malts. Flavor is creamy banana laffy taffy, wrapped in a vanilla laffy taffy but not half as sweet as either, a hint of wheat, lemon-lime soda, some fruity esters, spicy yeast, a hint of bitterness on the finish but not much. The palate is creamy smooth while still being slightly acidic. A fairly well put together brew, maybe a bit much on the banana notes for me but it was still refreshing, interesting and sweet.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy yellow color with white head. Some banana notes from the wheat but more like a spicy, higher alcohol hefe. Good overall flavor. Reminds me of a wheat belgian without a strong alcohol flavor. Toned down flavor that is enjoyable. Worth a try.

Bottle in Italy.
Wheaty, but with a strong alcohol character. Sourish, not easy to drink. Compared to their classic styled beers, this did not impress me at all.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 mL bottle. 500 mL bottle. Cloudy orange with a small but sticky white head. Sweet citrus in the aroma, along with the usual wheat and spice. Less banana than some others. Flavour is sweet, with yeast and spice, and some wheat near the end. Alcohol is well hidden. Body is full and creamy, although it thins out near the end. Nicely carbonated. Above average, but not spectacular.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Quite fruity aroma with banana, citrus, and plum. 10 karat pour with a nice fluffy ivory head. Clove, sweet malt, and wheat. Not a bad beer, but probably won’t go after it again.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not you typical weizen bock pour. Lightly hazed golden color with a tall white head. OK, typical hefe pour. Sweet wheat and ester aromas. Hints of yeast and fruit. Not real fresh smelling. Sweet malt and wheat flavors in the front followed by a mix of spice. Some cloves and banana in the finish and linger. Thick, yet a tight zip on the tongue. Not sure of the date of this one, but I’m quite certain this one fresh would be very good. The deeper I get into this one the more I like it. Nice malt base and very drinkable.
