look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A) A rather pale golden color with a nice foamy head that persisted longer than I expected.

S) Wheat, and a lovely amount. I thought there was another smell, but I couldn't nail it down due to the strong wheatiness.

T) Not as strong as I thought it would be. The wheat was definitely prevalent. The hops added a subtle bitter taste, nowhere near being overpowering.

M) Light, smooth, and delicate. light body; surprising to an extent.

O) A solid beer. Met my expectations on everything but the taste. I had hoped for something that would present itself stronger; however, the tastes were harder to sort out.

I bought this beer yesterday in Belgium when i was at Dranken Geers near Gent. I always like this type of beer in summer and today the summer starts!

Poured in the original glass i have for many years. Nice thich white head which disappears slowly leaving a small head on top of the cloudy yellow fluid. Smell of banana what you smell more in these type of beer.

Nice drinkable beer. Not the best i ever had but one of the beers which make Germany a great beercountry.

Bottle poured into a beer stein

Pours an amazingly strong head of beer as appropriate to the style. Hazy yellow orange appearance. No visible carbonation.

Spicy clove aroma with a sweet banana finish.

Classic wheat beer taste , mild cloves and banana aftertaste. Light to light medium mouthfeel. Refreshing, clean, delicious.
