On draught at the brewery tap. The menu suggest that Hell and Original are different beers. This was Original. Big banana, little clove, full-on wheat flavours but not so much in the follow-through. Claims to be authentically reproduced to the recipe and methods of 1901. I doubt it but it could be that the substitutions are legit.
From tap at Ottakringer Braukultur-Wochen, Vienna. Pretty hazy, light orange color with a white head. Lots of pear in the aroma; very fruity with some wheat, some yeast and some spices. Light to medium body with a light bitterness. The flavor is full of spices (cinnamon, lots of cloves), along with a nice fruitiness - lightly citric, pears, some banana - and some wheat. Light and refreshing.

12.12.2016 - Smell of citrus toilet cleaner, fruity. Taste is as wheaty as the palate. Not my kind of beer despite lacking banana esters wich i really don’t like. Well made for a Weizen but nothing for me to enjoy.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2016 Pours clear amber until the yeast goes in with a beautiful cloud; huge frothy white stable head. Nice nose of spice, grass, lemon, banana, zest, yeast. Fairly sour. Quite dry but creamy. Lovely and refreshing!
