Benediktiner Weissbier from a bottle.
Slightly hazy Orange Amber with a fine, durable of white head
Yeast, banana and malt in the nose.
Unusual yeasty flavor with a mild note of banana and fainty spicy. Sweet.
Medium+body with medium but soft carbonation. Near creamy smooth.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is slightly hazy dark pale yellow in color and has a moderate to high amount of visible carbonation. It poured into a weizen glass with a finger and a half high white head that has very good retention properties and consistently left a quarter finger high head covering the surface.
S: Light aromas of cloves are present in the nose along with some hints of banana-like yeast and wheat.
T: The taste is similar to the smell except that the flavors of cloves are a little more subdued and there are also some faint hints of grainy malts.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer isn't as refreshing as some of the other hefeweizens I've had, but it might make for a nice selection for someone who wants something light but isn't dominated by banana flavors from the yeast.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Has a thick, foamy, off-white head that even plops a bit as it's poured and sticks around graciously. Color is a hazy light brown with orange hues.

Bold aroma with estery notes mingling with allspice and various light fruits. Fruity (orange, kiwi) and a bit tangier to the tongue than expected. Lighter in body than was expected as well. Some grass and grain exists with some yeast at the end.

Slick and refreshing but this one could use a bit more in the flavor department.
