Hazy dark yellow, orange with huge white frothy head cinnamon and apple smell. Taste is citrus, vanilla and spicy herbs. Dry wheaty bitter finish. Average carbonation, medium body and creamy texture. Goes well with fish and chips, nuts, pretzels and chocolate cake.

Review according to BJCP2008 guidelines (style 15A). Bottle 50 cl - batch A090119. AROMA: wheat aroma with a somewhat sweet mixed aroma. very low esters or phenols. No hop aromas. APPEARANCE: dark golden color with orange tint. no haze with long lasting white head. TASTE: low wheat flavour. some residual sweet flavor present maybe due to malt. no phenols or esters. no hop flavour. finishes somewhat sweet. PALATE: medium body with medium to high carbonation. OVERALL: an odd weissbier with sweet after-taste.

500ml bottle poured in a chalice glass. Did not notice at purchase bottle dated 3/13/14, so it may not be the freshest. Decent head of foam that dissipates in a few minutes. Gold color, bordering on bronze. Smells floral. Taste is a rush of spices with malt and wheat. Mild carbonation, not too overpowering. The aftertaste is not great. Overall, a good beer. More on the bland side than complex.
