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

Pours a hazy gold with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of wheat, yeast, spice, and slight caramel aromas. Taste is much the same with toast, banana, caramel, spice, and yeast flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable, but nothing stands out about this one to me.

Serving type: bottle.

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.
