Really nice banana taste at start - loses flavour towards end and a bit flat

$ 3.49/16.9 oz bottle at Vintage Estates, Boardman, OH
Bottle marked 5493 at 40 degrees into weizen glass
Aroma of clove and banana
Head large (5 cm), white, creamy, slowly diminishing to 3 mm layer
Lacing OK – complete thick rings of tiny bubbles
Body light yellow, clear, constantly rising bubbles
Flavor of clove and banana; no hops, no yeast phenolics, no alcohol, no diacetyl; ends dry
Palate light, watery, lively carbonation

Appearance 4.5, Aroma 4, Flavor 4.5, Palate 4, Overall 4.25. Final weighted score: 4.3
This is an excellent example of the style; in fact I might suspect whoever wrote the style description may well have been drinking on of these at the time.

Pours golden with an inch of foamy white head. Smells of bananas, grain and cloves. Tastes the same going down. Creamy medium mouth. Just a great Bavarian beer.
