4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A very strong and intense clove aroma is evident, followed by very fruity banana smell. This misture gives it a pleasent overall first impression. The color can be described as a deep copper brown, with a very thick, bubbly off white long lasting head. The clarity is sligthly hazy and cloudy. Flavor of banana and cloves is strong, but good. High carbondation with no bitter aftertaste. Goes down very smoothly, a very filling rich beer. This will be a beer I will drink more ofton and will have my friends try.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I guess im not into dunkels.. it has a beautiful apperace, with a light brown pour and a huge frothy head. The problem for me is its halfway taste. It has a nice hefe backbone with some spices, banana and bread but that does not pair well with an artificial and light chocolat and roasted foreground. Its also a bit oily and simple. A smokey lemon and bland finish does not help this one either.

Pours a cloudy light brown color with a good size head. Has a light estery, spicy, and yeast aroma. Flavor is also light and fruity. Light body. Hoping for a little more dark malt flavor. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy caramel/amber color with a medium white head that lasts and laces the glass nicely. Aroma is wheaty, mildly sweet. Flavor too is wheaty with mild fruity/banana tones, mild sweetness and leaves palate cleanly (a little too watery ending).

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle. Hazy caramel pour with a medium white head. Nose is wheaty and spicy, much like it’s yellow Hefe-Weisse brother. In fact, aside from a very light toastiness, it IS it’s brother. Good, but not great.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 500ml from Citymarkt Kaufhof in Stuttgart. Hazy dark brown body under a medium lasting off-white head. Sweet fruity aroma. Flavour of clove and banana. Watery mouthfeel and a bit too sweet for my taste (24.04.2006).
