2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy/fizzy, off-white, fully diminishing.
Body is medium amber.
Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, grain), with notes of banana, clove, orange, dirt/dust, and rotten fruit.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean.
Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
An Ur-Weisse, how about that. This is my favorite style of weissbier, as they’re in the perfect sweet spot between helles weisse and dunkel weisse, but alas, this one’s pretty bad. The nose offers some nice notes but the sloppy malt character and off notes bring it down. The mouth experience is worse...dirty aftertaste, very light, very watery, very fizzy. Terrible head retention too. A drain pour.

My least favorite style of beer, but this is well executed. The banana in the aroma stays into the palate, which is something I like.
