Had this in Milan and was intrigued by the though of an Italian brewery-made hefeweizen. Poured from the bottle into a wine glass.

A - Cloudy yellow to orange color with a white head. Head retention was not strong.

S - Slight banana aroma but nothing too impressive as compared with Bavarian examples. More in line with an American Wheat.

T - Taste was mix of wheat, with slight banana note. Not terribly bad but not impressive either.

M - Mouthfeel was a little light with moderate carbonation.

O - I haven't found an Italian beer that I like to date and unfortunately this one wouldn't make it.

Hazy orange color, beautiful white foam. A lot of perlage.
Inthe smell a strong banana. Sweetish, anyway. Even some almond dough.
In the mouth banana again, some cloves. Still on the sweetish side.
Quite boring.
After a while, some band aid and medicinal notes.
Standard body, a less strong banana in the aftertaste.
It lacks some personality, and, when it warms, the off flavours tend to become stronger.
