With a red yellow body and a fatty but nice foam of fat, scented banana on the freshly sour side with sweet melon and a crisp pepper chunk in the drunk, the full co2 sticks a cup of malt to the mouth walls, various flavors that are out of balance; Not matched or chosen explicitly

From a 500ml bottle served at 12 degrees Celsius into a weisen glass.

Look: The beer pours a clear gold with 9cm of dense, white head that settles into a nice cap after 6+ minutes.

Smell: Fruity esters (banana) and spicy phenols (cloves). Grainy and no hops. Lacking some depth.

Taste: Just like the aroma with banana, cloves and a grainy, malty-sweet wheat. Quite tasty. The finish is moderate in length and intensity with a sweet, fruity balance and a faint graininess.

Feel: Medium body with high carbonation. Crisp yet mouth-coating. No apparent alcohol warmth.

Overall: I feel very neutral about this beer across the board. It fits well within the style and has no apparent flaws, however it fails to grab my attention. Probably worth a try if you like the style, but certainly not a stand out brew.

L: Gives a cloudy light orange color. A big top of head that disolve very slow. Good lacings on the glass.

S: yeast, fruits like banana and citrus,spices especially cloves

T&F: starts of with a fruity sweetness, wheat,banana and some small citric notes. In the middle the spices get more dominant and cloves are very noticable.it finish of dry with a small bitterness in the aftertaste. The aftertaste disappear quite fast and sense a little to watery flavour in the end.the mouthfeel are crisp.

O: a good and decent beer but lacks a little flavour to be a topshelf weisbier.easy to drink but a little anonymous.

This brew pours a cloudy orange with a fluffy white head, some of which sticks around until the end, lots of lacing and more carbonation than one would expect from a Hefeweizen.
The smell is funky and wheaty with some orange and bananas.
The taste is full of sweet wheat with a bit of a citric acid bite. The orange and banana taste dominate with the finish being slightly dry and giving you a second dose of citric acid bite.
Overall this is a simple, easy to drink Hefeweizen which, according to the label, follows the Reinheitsgebot.
