I love this beer on tap at my favorite German Restaurant, Black Forest Mills in Highland Mills, NY or from a half liter brown bottle into a tulip glass at Richie's in Fort Montgomery, NY.
Appearance: Golden to organgy yellow. Cloudy as it should be. Stirring up the sediment from the bottle is a must.
Smell: Heavy on the banana. Lighter on the clove than some but that is to my taste. THe smell of bread wheat comes out. Let the beer warm a bit to get all you can from this one.
Taste: Sweetness, bready, smoothness of wheaty bananas
Mouthfeel: Medium heavy carbonation. Medium body.
Overall: I cannot find a thing wrong. Sweet and banana-y like I like them! I am going to build a homebrew recipe to replicate this with one minor tweak....I am going to add some oats to build a little more creaminess into the body. This with a good sausage platter is a world class treat. I like this beer with sharp cheese but the German food platters are just too dang authentic not to have with this.
Serving type: on-tap
