Bottle. Sweet banana, orange, clove and wheat malt aroma. Cloudy orange-brown color with large head. Sweet banana/toffee malt flavor initial followed by strong spiciness - clove, pepper, light nutmeg. Very spicy dunkelweizen but well balanced - no flavor dominates. Very nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, Red Zebra, Derby. Another one of these rarely-seen -around-here German beers. A well-brewed-tea colour with a rocky head. Soft fruit and spice smeared across your nostrils, enough bite and tang, a pinching feel on the tongue. Impressive enough.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, Dodgy Deli, Oxford. Hazy copper, dense, persistent white head. Clove, kiwi, banana and orange peal, handled with a subtle touch, good fresh white bread yeasty warmth. Refreshingly sparkly citrus malt flavor accented with a little tartness. Citrus on the exhale and lingering spice. As Fin noted, nothing particularly wintery about this. But man is it good! Having never heard of this brewery before, and generally not getting all that worked up about hefeweizens, my expectations for this were pretty restrained. (Added to that the lousy 47th style percentage.) But I really dig this beer. I’m gonna go stock up on this one since I’ll probably never see it again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the Dodgy Deli, Cowley Road, Oxford. Had this 05-01-08 white bubbly very large head wheat and banana on the nose and also found themselves to be quite high up on the flavour front. Not sure why this is called winter-weisse as there was nothing about it that would differentiate itself from any other wheat, still I rather liked it and it went down very well.
