3.41/5  rDev -7.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Pours a finger of head, but is quickly gone. The body is a cloudy medium straw color.
The aroma is mild banana, clove and wheat.
The taste is mildly sweet; banana and apricot mostly.
The texture is crisp with soft edges and moderate carbonation.
A descent job with the Hefe considering I found it in Korea.

3.94/5  rDev +6.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Bright but clouded straw body with a pure white head that you could rest a coin on.

S: Refreshing blend of citrus/bananas and general wheatness. No yeast spice.

T: Very much reflects the aroma with its pungent citrus/banana blend. Very nice. The fruit lingers long afterwards. It's not sweet but not completely dry. There's a little bit of powdered sherbet and some solvent towards the end. In every other mouthfull I get marzipan/almonds.

M: Nice and zingy. A tiny bit sticky.

O: This is marketed as cheap German grog so I thought it would be shit but I love it (when it's fresh, that is). It has become one of my staples here in South Korea. Much prefer it to Weihenstephaner, the most overrated beer on BA.
