Bottle (BB Jan 26, 2018). Head is initially small, frothy, off-white to light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is medium brown. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, bread), with notes of banana, brown sugar, orange juice. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, moderately to heavily acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately to heavily acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic.
Only a hint in the aroma that it might be sour, and sure enough it is...in an unpleasant, infected kind of way, not just yeasty tartness. It's a shame because the aroma does have at least some promise, even if it's mostly sugary. DavidWoodruff (630) - Windsor, California, USA - MAY 23, 2017
Murky brownish orange with a large off-white head. Ugly as it gets. Aroma is like a combination of banana and mulling spices. Tastes immediately like banana bread but with some interesting caramel and rum-like notes - maybe more like Banana Fosters. Nice and full bodied with a surprisingly creamy texture. klm1 (1785) - Bled/SF, - MAY 17, 2017

: pours dark amber like copper, muddy, with long lasting froffy off-white head. Aroma: bread-like, toasted, "weizen" yeasts like charackter, banana and some dark fruits (especially plums, prunes beside banana) like esters, clove,....flavour follows aroma. Slightly dry, and gentle sweet on palate. Alcohol isn’t noticeable. Full body, fluffy texture, medium carbonation. Great beer for almost nothing. Absolutely underrated!!
Bottle sampled at the Brauereigasthof Schwendl. Tiny but lasting brown head. Nice aroma with a medium banana. Sweet cara maltiness. Michael27 (2286) - Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2016
Aus der Flasche getrunken (Landbierparadies Nürnberg). Dunkles Kupfer mit schönem, feinem weißen Schaum. In der Nase bananig und fruchtig. Im Mund nur angenehme milde Fruchtigkeit ohne vorstechende Hefenoten.

Amber and cloudy pour. Bananas, cloves, and very hearty. A decent helles starkbier. Not bad change of pace after drinking several darker brews

Bottle from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours hazy copper with a creamy white head. Aroma of light caramel and perhaps banana. Med minus body. Flavor is wheat/caramel (light) with some banana after a moment. Flavors aren’t strong, but it’s a decent drink. Not bitter, but not too far from dry. joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - DEC 19, 2015
500 ml. bottle. Best by 4/9/16. It pours a relatively clear brown color with a tall off white head that shrinks in about a minute. The aroma has some toasted malt, banana, raisin, fig, bread and some clove. The rich breadiness is a nice complement to the fruity fermentation esters. The flavor is melanoiden rich with some baked bread, molasses, raisin, banana and clove. Pretty phenolic and estery, but the body is reasonably light and well carbonated. A potent cocktail of dark maltiness and estery yeast activity. Maybe a hint of DMS with some cooked vegetables in the finish. Overall, decent but not a repeat purchase. lebermilz (298) - GERMANY - AUG 12, 2015

Tap at Camba in Munich. Medium brown color with orange tints. Nose of peach, cloves, bananas, and chocolate. Flavor of chocolate banana cake, big tangy fruit, cinnamon, nice spice and fruit. Good stuff.
