This bottle was well within the best by date, but still seemed off. Nice nose of spicy continental hops and German malts. pours a pretty lightly cloudy copper. A hint of smokiness in the flavor is quite nice. All that said,my bottle was nearly flat with no head at all. Would like to try this fresh.

500 ml served in mug. Amber colour with big fluffy foam head. Malt, ripe banana, rye bread, a bit tobacco and vanilla, and some Weizen/Dunkelweizen aromas. Malty and slightly bitter, a bit watery. Soft carbonated, medium body. Watery texture. Very unusual and traditional beer.

Mahagoni with no head. Aroma is yeasts, banana, flour, nuts slight spices. Taste is a bit flat sourness, less bitter nuts. Easy drinkable, but not smooth, many bubbles. However very characteristic. Enjoyable.

Chopper925 (548) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - OCT 25, 2016
Bottle. Clear, beautiful amber color, thick foamy head. Caramel, bread and a cookie-like aroma. Light sweet, slightly sour and medium bitter taste. Very malty, caramel aftertaste. Carbonation is a little low for my taste, but plays well with the medium texture.

ciocanelu (2466) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - OCT 24, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2016 Clear, amber color with white head. Aroma has yeast esters resembling weissbier or dunkelweizen. Taste is slightly tart at first with some toasted malt, continues with overripe banana. Finish is quite dry and astringent. Light body with low carbonation. Quite interesting but not really well put together.

DomD (303) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 15, 2016
Bottle into glass. Aroma of candy and banana. Pours a clear amber. Light bitter taste. Not bad.

0,5l Bügelflasche. Sehr schöne Bernsteinfarbe mit hellbraunem Schaum. Sehr eigenwilliger Duft. Gewürzkaramel, Muskat, Traube und Apfel. Säuerlich-malzig im Antrunk. Sternanis, Muskat. Spannender und wirklich eigener Geschmack. Gefällt mir!
