3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow gold body with a nice frothy white head that left some light lacing. The nose is very light wheat with a light fruity ester quality. The flavor is pretty solid, lots of Hefe character, especially banana bread. The yeast is not there, but there’s clearly a lot of yeast influence. Nice clean light wheat. Light bodied and fizzy with soft carbonation and a lingering fruity finish. This is surprisingly good, and has a lot more character than I was expecting. Good beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle. Transparent golden colour brew. Hissing 1 finger porous white head. Stays for about 2 minutes. Massive spritzy carbonation. The aroma reflects all hefeweizen features like bubblegum, banana, sour apples, wheat & flour. Flavour is clean almost like dry cider green apple, fizzy, lemon, malts. Medium body. Not bad.
