look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

The aroma is lightly spicy with a little banana and dough plus a touch of latex and browning apple. The cloudy body is a sunny amber with a white head. The flavor is spicy, sour, and bitter with some waxy, honey-like sweetness; the finish is grainy and mildly sweet. The body is somewhat light but well carbonated and spritzy.

A little too sour and bitter for my taste, and not well balanced with the more pleasant clove and banana typical of the style. Still, the texture is refreshing and the flavor isn't altogether bad. The aroma isn't too appetizing though.

smooth, creamy head, not hoppy at all. lightly lemony with hint of banana esther, but no discernible spiceyness.
no strange overtones or funkiness, just clean flavor in the biscuity sense; not overly carbonated.
different from your average lager. Not bitter at all, and not sweet, either. Very refreshing.
Like the first level of a Belgian tripel, but drinkable as a session beer... this isn't Hell, it's heaven!

An excellent, smooth weissbier. Grainy but just enough of the banana clove nuance.
