3.08/5  rDev -23%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Without yeast, it has a full golden color; after pouring the yeast, it becomes a more classical dark orange, hazy. Compact, dense and creamy head.
In the smell a classic banana-yeast, well balanced, but there are also some hop (!) and hay notes (!!). Maybe berry-fruit hints, and apricot.
Taste more dry than a standard weizen. Sharp citric, and some banana. After some while, the taste becomes more classic.
Standard body. Fruity aftertaste (orange, banana), and again, herbal notes. (487 characters)

4.13/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Nice golden color, kind of opaque. half inch persistent head. Tiny bubbles keep moving as you drink the beer.
Wheat in the smell with some fruits and a nice yeast aroma.

The wheat is very present in the taste, together with the yeast. A classic hefe weizen taste, smooth, enjoyable, with very little hops. But there's also a slightly sour sensation, something like lemon and clearly banana, that makes the beer a bit different and interesting. The sourness is well balanced with the general wheaty flavor of the brew. A dry finish.

Highly drinkable. A nice beer. (569 characters)
