Review according BJCP2008 (style 15A). Bottle 50cl - Batch L013436. AROMA: slight banana aroma with a wheat background. no hop aroma. APPEARANCE: gold color with an abundant and moussy white head, with good retention. traditionaly hazy. TASTE: low banana flavour balanced with wheat. very low hop flavour and bitterness. some citrusy notes. relatively dry finish. PALATE: medium body and always effeverscent. OVERALL: a very refreshing average bulk weissbier.

I really love this beer. Its fresh and bright with very creamy notes of vanilla and wheat. I also get subtle hints of orange and lemon zest to liven it up and give it more of a complex character. Truly a great Hefeweizen!

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.
