Pours a hazy orange colour, with an enromous head that keeps you company during the drink. Great compact and irregular lace. Aroma of pineapple, banana, cloves, oranges. Body is lighter than expected, though still good. Carbonationn is really good. Taste of banana, lemon, clove. Good.

Billowing head collapses to a film which leaves little lacing moderate haziness with no floaties.

Definite banana and clove flavor with a bit of a bite at the end enhanced by the healthy carbonation. Mouthfeel is substantial and chewy.

The malt is what really distinguishes this, it saves the brew from being cloyingly sweet.

Quite good. Will have again.

Pours hazy amber with a two finger thick and very, very smooth head. Lots of lacing and nice retention. Smell is banana, some clove and alcohol, lemon, bread... And also, I'm sorry to say, something that's not entirely unlike a faint puke smell. Tastes sweet, with banana and bubblegum, and a bit spicy. Oh, and there's still that weird pukey thing going on. Weird (and kinda gross). Mouthfeel is thick and frothy, a bit sticky.

Yeesh. Is this really the oft-praised Paulaner? It's like a disappointing version of Hoegaarden, except it's twice as expensive. The best compliment I can offer it is that's it slightly above average.

More sour and spicy than many US craft brew examples. Lots of clove, wheat and pepper, and a little lighter on the banana and bubblegum. A good thirst quencher overall.

330ml bottle poured into tulip.

Pours a hazy bright orange with one fat finger of white head that leaves rolling Middle Earth foothill lace as it recedes.

Smells of banana, lemon zest, white pepper, clove, grainy wheat malt and fruity, grassy hops.

Tastes of more ripe banana, sugared lemon, bubblegum, more peppery yeast, white bread and more mild green hops.

Feels light and lively. Light bodied with actively frothy carbonation. Finishes mildly sweet.

Verdict: Vigorously recommended. Complex and refreshing.
