3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Murky gold with a fluffy white head and a fair amount of lacing. Heavy in the wheat and spicy to boot. Peppery with a hint of banana. Bitter and grassy hops round off the aroma. The flavor is mostly wheat and fruity esters of banana. Again cloves come out in the spicing with some hot pepper notes. Sweet touches throughout being a little hot on the tail end. Bitter as well at the tail.

(Tap) Pours gold-yellow with little haze and white head. Mild flavor and rather carbonated. Watery ending really disappoints. I like hefeweizens, but not this one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle BB 19/04/07) Aroma of banana, other fruits and yeast. Hazy, sparkling, brown yellow (slightly ’dirty’) colour and white, average, slightly lasting head with a hint of lacing. Banana, other fruits (citrus), wheat, yeast and slight hoppiness in the flavour. Medium-bodied and softly carbonated palate. A reasonable brew (a bit thin maybe) but not one of my favourite hefeweizens. 08/07/06

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2006 Draft, at the <a ref=/events-detail.asp?eventID=3891>Balmoral Brewhaha. Very much in hefe country, pardner. Lighter on the banana nosethan a full hefe, but there’s that bit o’clove, some coriander and a bit of bubblegum flavor, too. Light color, a thin head. I’ve also picked up a note of apples further down. A nice light summer beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A cloudy, orange yellow coloured beer with a frothy white head. A strong wheaty aroma, with an exotic fruit smell, of bananas in particular. the taste is wheaty and the exotic fruit element of banana, papaya and mango! The finish is slightly sweet and malty. (Draught - @ the Hofbräuhaus, Munich).

Bottle: Poured amber, huge white persistent head, totally clear, no haze. All I could smell from it was yeast. Flavor was very bland, malty, little to no hops. Very thin, no aftertaste to speak of. Also went straight to my head. Other than that, not too much to it.

Draught at the Englischer Gartern, Munich. Creamy, light Hefe. Golden colour, sweet, yeasty, but very balanced and refreshing. This was lovely, whilst sitting in the sun. I didn’t want to go home.
