500 ml bottle, weizen glass

A – Beer ranges from dark copper to deep amber, depending on where you look in the glass (density and ability for light to pass through.) Generally on the darker end. Moderate yeasty haze. The head is slightly off- to tan-white, very moussy with high, high retention.

S – I get bubble gum and plantains or dark bananas, with spicy notes in the background. Some other fruitiness, perhaps pears. Slightly undercooked white bread in the malt character. No discernible hops. Some slight caramel.

T – Like bananas cooked in brown sugar, with a slightly orange-ish note. A bit of caramel. A very small amount of hop character, maybe grassy or herbal.

M – No real bitterness to speak of, mostly sweet with sudsy carbonation. Medium body made heavier by the yeast sediment. Remains juicy throughout, not dry at all.

O – Very similar to the base hefeweissbier with a bit of caramel and more emphasis on the banana.
