500ml Bottle from Habana restaurant, Friedrichshain, Berlin (€3.50):
Medium brown, slightly cloudy with a foamy white 1cm head that's smaller than expected but holds very well.

Wheat & clove initially, some citrus & bubblegum after that with some lighter malts & yeast too; not a bad start with some fruits lingering in the background as well.

Wheat & light malts with faint caramel & cloves. Spice & touches of water come through around the middle. There was some banana in there as well but this was slightly weaker than I would have liked.

Smooth & easy going with some sweetness but I was disappointed to discover that it was slightly watery in places making it seem a touch bland. Some spice & decent carbonation offset this for the most part but not completely.

A pleasant beer & one that was easy to enjoy without really exciting. Not bad & quite refreshing but the hefeweizen version of this one is better.

Had a pint on tap at an Edmonton, Alberta area pub (Spruce Grove to be specific). After being pleasantly surprised by this brewery's weissbier offering (see that review), I had fairly high expectations for this one. Certainly this was technically proficient and nothing was obviously wrong, a brown-red wood color with ample fizz and an inch or so of beige quick-breaking head. Aroma features the expected banana and clove elements along with some caramel and faint chocolate. Body is much like that of a lighter macro-brewed weiss, on the thin side and featuring an apple-like fruity "young beer" flavor along with some brown sugar, raisin and clove. Banana is low level, at least to my palate. A little sour and quite crisp. Not as complex as its lighter stablemate but pleasant enough I suppose. I have enjoyed less fruity and more malty examples of the style but makes a decent enough patio brew when in the mood for something a touch darker. Not particularly sweet and maybe a little bland. Was hoping for something more robust.
