Pours hazy orange beer with nice off-white head, long retention.
Smell - banana, grain.
Taste - follows the smell, rather plain, no spiciness, no clove.
Medium body and carbonation, dull and watery.

Small white head which leaves some streaks. Cloudy naturally with dirty gold color.

Strong banana aroma.

The taste is quite sweet almost as if banana was added. Lighter carbonation but with a fuller body. Refreshing on a warm day.

Hazy golden color with white head. Aroma has sweet malt and wheat and banana esters. Taste starts also sweet with wheat and banana flavors, finish is also estery but more astringent and slightly bitter on the aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation, not as effervescent as other hefeweizens. Overall it's quite good but not one of the best of its style.

A little underwhelming, considering some of the other magnificent beers produced by this brewery. Just average all the way around, in appearance, taste and aroma. Nothing special here....

This beer was nice. I came across it in a Rimping Supermarket in Chiang Mai. I enjoyed it. At first smell, I wasn't sure how it was going to go - it almost seemed bitter, which was surprising for a wheat beer. I noticed some other reviews said it was spicy among other things...maybe my nose is broken. In either case, taking a drink pushed the smell issue away because it was thoroughly enjoyable. I would get it again especially after reading some other reviews that spoke so highly of it.

From Hipercor. In Paulaner glass. After dinner. Nice weissbier, with a thick body and good taste. However, it hasnt anything special either.
