4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2014 Bottle at the brewery, dated September 30 best by. Sparkling, highly effervescent gold. Stiff, tall head.
Phenolic mineral water nose, dominant note of banana with clean wheat expression. Fresh and lively in the mouth. Just about the perfect nose for weissbier, hard to find anything to improve or change. Lemon meringue and spiced clove sits in the background but adds a pleasant pepperiness to the wheat core. Light body, sugar and acid well-matched. If anything a little too banana-heavy in the mouth, but the nose seems flawless.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from the brewery, at our Bamberg appartment. Hazy gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is grainy, spicy, light menthol notes (found this in most Bamberg weizens?) light clove, not much banana, more into the herbal and spicy bouquets. Taste is sweet, grainy with a lasting grainy/spicy/yeasty finish. Palate is med bodied with light carbonation. Not bad.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Säuerlich-hefiger, leicht herber Antrunk. Erfrischend, zu leicht, zum Ende hin eher langweilig und kaum aromatisch.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Had this at the brewery itself. Excellent very fruity banana aroma (maybe because of some special yeast?!) and in comparison to other german Hefeweizen it is hopped a bit more. The only demerit is the quickly resolving foam.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had this at The Pelikan, Bamberg, Germany 18-06-10 great bar, but limp England performance (0-0 versus Algeria) Glowing orange appearance like a nuclear experiment in a glass it glows! The yeast leaving yeasty vapour trails in glass. The taste is soft squidgy banana, medium carbonation, stringy fruitiness, touch of citrus, nice beer. A6 A5 T7 P4 Ov13 3.5
