Aroma: not very intense aromas of malts, toasted malts, caramel, spices, hints of honey, brown sugar. Hints of ripe banana as the beer got warmed.
Appearance: deep brown color, quite dark but it seems very hazy. Light brown color foam with extremely high height. Super creamy foam made of tiny-to-little sized bubbles. Extremely high retention. Very low Brussels’ lacing.
Taste: medium sweetness, low bitterness, no sourness. Flavors of malts, toasted malts, some caramel and bread crust, brown sugar, grains. Hints of roasted malts, dried fruits, raisins, prunes and ripe banana. The balance is toward the malt sweetness. No much hop flavors nor aromas here.
Palate: medium body, watery texture, low carbonation, quite long sweet finish of malt sweetness, toasted malts, caramel, toffee, bread crust and hints of ripe banana, raisins, prunes, brown sugar and spices.
Overall: good appearance, pleasant aromas and flavors of malts, toasted malts, bread crust, caramel, toffee, ripe bananas, some spices too. The malt sweetness is not cloying and it is quite drinkable. Quite watery. No hints of wheat flavors nor aromas. No hop flavors nor aromas. Very low bitterness. Just a decent beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pleasant drink, but not exceptional. Pours frothy with lasting head, as you’d expect from a Weizen. Aroma of caramel and some banana. It’s a dark beer, clear and bright. Taste is overwhelmingly of malt, some fruit, but very little bitterness. Frothy and gassy, so full palate. Pleasant, decent, but I was slightly reminded of an alcoholic dandelion and burdock. Which is not necessarily bad. Would be good on a nice summer afternoon in a beer garden

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Leicht malziger Antrunk, nicht hefig. Hat nicht mehr viel mit Weizen zu tun. Nicht mein Geschmack. Wieder zu viel Kohlensäure enthalten!

Ładna kremowa piana. Aromat ciemnej bułki drożdżowej, czekolada orzechowa, lekka kwiatowość. W smaku podobnie, sporo czekolady, bananów, chleb, drożdżówka, ciemne słody- czekoladowy i karmelowy. Przyjemne piwo

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours very dark brown with a beige foamy head. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel, nuts, yeast and ripe berries. Taste is sweetish with slightly roasted malts, caramel and a hint of chocolate. Finishes with moderate spiciness. A good example of the style. (0,5 l bottle, bb 11/2017)

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours very dark brown from the bottle and leaves a tall, foamy off-white crown. A few evident floaters. The aroma is dank, yeasty, a bit nutty; noticeably absent is the banana component so prevalent in this style of beer. Taste is lightly milk chocolate sweet, trending sour going into the finish. Overall however the flavors are dampened by the somewhat watery impression the beer leaves behind, and there is not much complexity in the taste. Lighter than average body with a prickly carbonation. Decent but not particularly good.
