2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.33l bottle. This is a hazy orange one with a really nice everlasting just off-white fluffy top that’s leaving big lacing down the glass. Soft and a bit subtle perhaps on the nose with wheat, some lemony citrus, pear and soft yeasty undertones. Not bad at all though. It’s average on the carbonation with a soft oily - almost watery mouthfeel. Light wheat flavors also. It’s a actually not bad tasting at all. Slightly dry and really grainy on the tongue with a faint acidity in the background. Almost flour-ish dryness. An OK weiz, not way to much more than that. 02.02.2013

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml test bottle from the importer. ABV is 4.8%. Cloudy golden colour, large white head. Medium strong and sweetish aroma of over-ripe bananas and cloves. Fizzy mouthfeel. Medium sweet flavour, notes of cloves and some banana again, but lacks the touch of citrussy freshness that other hefeweizens have. Still very drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, shared with Foffern. Pours a deep murky honey-hued orange body with a huge creamy white head. Nose is grains, citrus, hints of prunes, nuts and bread dough. A bit sweet, very mild but fair enough I guess. Taste is sweet doughy grain tones, hints of banana and mild clove. OK, but I wish for a bit more citric freshness to balance out the sweet notes which are so dominant. Full body, medium carbonation. An OK weizen.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared with ClubGonzo. Has a very hazy dull light orange colour with a off-white medium and whipped eggwhite-like head. A bit mild aroma of coriander, sweet fruit, lime, banana chocolate, yeast and something perfumy. Faint taste of pale malt, hay, pear and some spices. Light and slick mouthfeel, and a light bitterness. Decent, nothing more or less, and feels a bit hollow.

Big white head. Hazy yellow body with light carbonation. Spicy
wheaty oily aroma with yoghurty dried fruit notes. Dryish,
faintly acidic, wheaty mealy orangey taste with earthy notes.
Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish earthy, slightly
dirty, wheaty mealy aftertaste with fruity notes. Strange.
Partly very good, but marred by that dirty earthiness. (0.33l
