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.

On tap into a weizen glass @ Heidelberg Haus, Seattle. Pours a deep amber w/ a 1-finger beige head, moderate carbonation.

Aroma is dark bready malt, ripe banana, clove, fruity esters.

Taste is dark sweet wheat malt, clove and other spice, banana.

Mouthfeel is soft and mellow, nice carbonation.

Overall a solid dark hefeweizen, a tasty pairing for my plate of jaegerschnitzel and spaetzle.
