A small German restaurant the went into the basement of my old high-school in an aged victorian gold-rush town served this. I had to try it.

I was pleased at how simple the packaging was. The beer really spoke for itself. Look was great, and the foam (which I always love) was generous. It had a look of straw gold. The scent was sweet.

Tasting was an interesting experience. I expected to really taste alcohol due to the high abv - to my surprise, there was no bite, the level of alcohol taste was minor are balanced well. The taste reminds me of a hefeweizen toned down and not as murky. Banana & vanilla, maybe apricot.

I enjoyed this beer very slowly before dinner, and didn't dare eat any food with it to muddle the taste. It was well worth the money.
