500ml bottle poured into a weizen glass.

Crystal clear bright gold in color with lots of risen carbonation, it tops with very thick fluffy white head that very well retains with very good retention before slowly sinking to a lasting foamy layer atop and leaving some lacing on the glass-side.

Clean malt aroma of white bread, honey biscuit, dough, and cereal grain, it is as well floral, mild banana, mild fruity, citrus, and some clove spice.

The taste is led by fruity characters of citrus zest then some sweet banana like a banana bread. Malt is there as a solid foundation with its bread, honey biscuit, dough, and cereal grain. There is some crisp of clove spice drawing in.

Medium body with creamy smooth mouthfeel and rather lively carbonation, the feeling is crisp and refreshing with a dry and rather clean finish.

Light and clean as it should be but somehow a bit lacking of the weizen yeast character, still decent anyway.

Had this on draft in a Berlin cafe.

Came out in a tall weizen glass showing a clear golden hue with a thick foamy head. A nice wheaty aroma with hints of banana and yellow cake upon first whiff. No detectable hops but a nice crisp light mouthfeel. Everything was a blur after my first bite of currywurst.

Pours a sparkling clear pale amber with a foamy white head. Sweet yeasty aroma. Flavours are caramel, banana and spice. Bitterness is just noticeable. Has a medium mouthfeel.

Pours a finger and half of head on a clear light straw colored body.
The aroma is a nice wheat smell with some notes of banana.
The flavor is weak. A little metallic, inappropriate bitterness in the middle. Wanders.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
The taste was a letdown.
