A: poured into a weizen glass to a clear pale yellow with a three finger dense white head that retains very well
S: smells of wheat banana and clove
T: taste is banana, creamy wheat and some light clove and spice. swallow is more banana and pear with some more clove and wheat with some ever so slight bitterness
M: light and creamy on the palate but not watery with slightly prickly carbonation and a refreshing finish
O: A very tasty wheat beer with good flavors and excellent balance. Try it if wheats are your thing

500ml bottle from the "world's oldest brewery".

A: Pours a crystal clear pale yellow under a solid two-finger thick white head which fades to a thin cap and leaves clumpy lace.

N: Bananas and subtle cloves, estery, wheaty yeast, fruity and floral.

T: Clean yeasty, wheat, fruity, crackery malts.

M: Light body and semi-full carbonation. Finishes crisp, semi-dry and estery.

O: Refreshing and easy drinking. The best of the style from the world's oldest brewery, so they know what they are doing. Pure enjoyment.

Poured from a glass into a tall 24 oz. pilser glass.

A: A lovely yellow-gold with tinges of brown, gorgeous thick head with significant milky lacing, excellent carbonation which rises from the bottom of the glass in ribbons.

S: Bitter with lots of yeast, citrus and a nice hop balance.

T: Very light but no negative flavors. Not as wheaty as expected. Lots of hops and light toasted malts form the body. Citrus, spice and banana notes covering.

M: Crisp and fresh, easy to drink.

O: Definitely an extremely nice, easy to drink beer. Not as wheaty as expected but otherwise very flavorful. A good glass to drink with a light meal.
