Typical nose of banana and clove, some cinnamon-like spicyness comes through and fresh white bread. Hazy brown, nice head, thins quickly. Spicy and phenolic in flavour with some fruit, also some caramel, with a touch of sweetness that finishes with a light tartness. Medium body and carbonation. Quite nice.

w kategorii weizenów prawdziwa perła - mocne, wyśmienicie pijalne, przejrzały banan, skórka chleba, klasyczne nuty pszeniczne zbalansowane koźlakiem, skarb niemieckiego piwowarstwa, ultraklasyk, trzeba to znać

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2017 Bottle. Dark orange/mahagony with shades of red. Huge white/beige foamy head. Aroma: The clove is strong in this one. Malts, dark berries and some banana. Phenolic.

oczek2015 (479) - Przemysl, POLAND - NOV 27, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2017 Butelka 0,5 z datą ważności do 13.03.2018. BARWA: jasno brunatne, mętne. PIANA: koloru przybrudzonej bieli, średnia, drobno pęcherzykowa, szybko znika praktycznie do zera. AROMAT: przejrzały czarny banan, rodzynki, nuty gumy balonowej, jest słodko, trochę jak ubijane żułtko z cukrem . SMAK: świetny balans początek słodki ciemne owoce, dojrzały banan, ciemne pieczywo wszystko kontrowane ziołową goryczką, nie ma ulepkowości co mogłoby sugerować aromat. Odpowiednie średnie wysycenie, dość pełne ale pijalne, deserowe. Świetne piwo.
