look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.

11.2oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

Look: Hazed muddle yellow, beautiful bubbly lace

Smell: Fresh bread, faint banana peel, mild spice, nutty yeast, dragonfruit, doughy

Taste: Smooth, crisp bite, clean graininess, mild banana pith, vague spice, yeast, chalky, dried grass, modest hopping, finishes dry

Very good, a bit too clean for my liking ... expected a bit more of the banana and clove but without those two pushing harder it is still a very drinkable brew.

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
