Beer is dark brown, with a moderately sized off-white head. Fades steadily.
Nose contains wheat and is very malty and bready. Smells quite sweet. Banana and raisin are there. Smells a bit like banana bread, but more on the bread side than banana.
Fairly strong flavour. Wheat, spices, bubblegum, bread, banana and raisin. Decently hopped- despite the notable sweetness, the finish has a touch of bitterness.
Full bodied, moderately carbonated. A bit of boozy heat, but slight.
Overall, pretty good, but too sweet and it gets hard to finish a pint. Starts strong, but wears on you.

Served in a weizen glass.
A - Voluminous light mocha foam settles to a linger creamy cap, leaving behind plenty of lacing. Unfiltered chestnut brown body, with some bubbles visibly streaming upward.
S - The initial aroma had a fair bit of green apple, but as the beer warmed it dissipated and revealed toasted grains, wheat, nuts, sugar cookie, and perhaps a hint of milk chocolate. Not the most potent beer and I don't get a ton of yeast character here.
T - The taste is a bit more potent, with clove and phenol-laden weizen yeast mingling with brown sugar, grain, tobacco, and a bit of milk chocolate. Less toasty and more yeasty here, with a mildly tangy finish.
M - Medium body, grainy texture, with a fairly crisp finish; only mild lingering stickiness. Pleasant carbonation and minimal alcohol presence.
D - Not a bad beer once you get past the wimpy aroma. I think a 12oz serving might have been better than 500ml, as I struggled near the end; not the type of beer I'd want in large quantities. Still, it's a pretty solid example of a relatively unsexy style.
