4/5 rDev -1.5%
Appearance: Cloudy, orange-ish color with one finger of fluffy head that lingers quite a while but without much lacing.
Aroma: Lots of banana oil, wheat malt, some spiciness and a little citrus rind.
Taste: A bit thin on the front end as the yeast and spice grow, building carbonation until it becomes quite prickly, Lots of banana, clove, a little citrus rind bitterness, body builds with a nice wheat taste then finishing fairly fast and clean with just some lingering spice.
The Rest: An old standby that I've just never reviewed. All-day drinkable, and a nice, fairly balanced profile.

Had in tap sitting at a beer garden in front of the Rhine in Cologne. Pours yellowish golden orange colored with a creamy white head. Aroma of banana esters, yeast, some light coriander spice, maybe some sweet pears. Flavor follows suit with the aroma closely, with a slight bit of watery note where I wish the flavors would punch me in the mouth a bit harder. Light plus bodied with plus carbonation and easy drinking. Nice beer, but just not up to the likes of the Weihenstephaners of the world.
