3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Cloudy golden colour with a big white head. Aroma is big and warm, with banana and yeast and a nice hint of lemon. Full mouthfeel. Flavour of a really solid weiss on steroids - everything tastes great, and there’s more of it. Finish is dry and warm, with some herbal hops and a bit of alcohol. Another Weihenstephan winner.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden and hazy with a large head. Banana ester aroma that could be more asertive. Flavour was quite like a hefe, fruity esters and a little spice, but with a restrained dryness and a stong malt character. Medium body. Pretty good.
