Fat @ Beer Sellar, Nashville. Dimmigt gul, vitt skum. Dofter och smaker av banan, apelsin, koriander och jäst. Halvtorr munkänsla. Något tunn kropp, men oerhört lättdrucken och frisk.

Drjohnrock (680) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Poured from 12 ounce bottle purchased from Kroger in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, tasted on July 20, 2015. Cloudy golden hue, strong banana/clove aroma, zesty carbonation bordering on overdone, nicely balanced banana/spice flavor that doesn’t overdo the clove. Quite good for style.

12 oz. bottle thanks to weihenweizen, nice brew. Label reads 3-5-15. Really? Most wheat brews fall off quick, this didn’t. Big yeast phenols, banana, clove and light spice.

The yeast profile is about as authentic German as you can get, nice esters. Body is medium with a light chewiness. The finish has the sweetness plus light spicy notes. Nicly made.
