Poured from the bottle into an original Franziskaner Royal wheat beer glass.
Best before January 2015.

Look: Amber to dark orange, very little carbonation, it starts with a foamy head which disappears rather quickly

Smell: It doesn't smell of much at all, in my opinion. Wheat and maybe a little bananas

Taste: Sweet bananas, malt and a stronger wheat flavor than many other wheat beers

Feel: Feels very full bodied and rather heavy in the mouth

Overall: A good wheat beer. Definitely better than the original Franziskaner but there are many other better wheat beers around.

Beer bottle (50 cl.) purchased from Bières & Chopes, and tasted in 2014.

Appearance : amber color with tan foamy head.
Smell : wheat, clove and yeasty aromas.
Taste & mouthfeel : yeast, with roasted malty finish.
Overall : a good beer in the German style Hefe Weizen.

Half-litre bottle of the 'Edition 2', poured into the correct glass at home on 18th Oct 2013.

Dark orange hue to the murky brown body; on top a full, deep and lasting white foam covering.

If any of your friends can't smell banana esters in a Hefenweizen, this is the one to bring out: it is truly full of those smells, some yeastiness and vanilla too, but mostly and strongly bananas.

The taste follows the aroma very closely, with banana and vanilla at the fore, some clove and yeasty notes in the mix also, but secondary throughout.

Full bodied for a Hefeweizen and full of flavour: a really good beer in a style that I sometimes struggle to fully appreciate.
