Bottle, One Pint, 0.9 fl. Oz.

Clear, golden color. Few bubble rising. Thick bright white head.

Lots of banana in the nose, some cloves, a little citrus, bready wheat.

Banana up front along with sweet bready malts. Cloves comes thought the taste, I get some hint of apples, raw cookie dough, slight touch of lemony towards the finish. Body is almost creamy, very soft carbonation.

Poured into a tall glass. Three fingers of head. Clear, golden color with lots of bubbles.
Smells like apples and wheat.
It also tastes like apples, and banana with a slight bitterness.
Crisp texture, moderate carbonation and medium body. Clean finish.
Delicious.

3.9/5  rDev -3.2%

Gushing carbonation on opening. Pale straw colour. Large, finely-textured white head is retentive and leaves a patchy lace. Wheat cracker aroma with hints of lemon and banana. Flavours of sweet white bread, clove, and banana. Light-bodied and heavily carbonated. Carbonation, though abundant, is soft and very finely textured. I prefer the richer mouthfeel and stronger flavours in the regular weiss, but this still succeeds on its own merits.

3.83/5  rDev -5%

Serving type: Bottle

A: Golden straw colour with plenty of fizz and a nice big white head. Little lacing

S: Sweet malts with some wheat and a hint of nuts. Hints of banana, pepper and bubblegum

T: Creamy, bready malts are sweet and balances well with the hops. There is slight bitterness from the hops, but the spicy pepper, cloves come through straight away, and finishes with a fruity whack of banana and bubblegum. Well balanced

M: Medium bodied, carbonation is good. Refreshing

O: A great beer that I would definitely try again
