Cloudy, unfiltered orange to light, chocolate-brown colour that forms a large off-white head that is a fluffy foam texture. The retention is quite good and some lacing on the glass is visible.

A nice wheat aroma that is backed up with a strong banana and clove smell plus some mild spices.

Banana & to a lesser extent cloves are here but are not as noticeable as in the smell. They are partially masked by the sweet caramel flavour but this is still an excellent beer to drink, helped by the almost bitterless finish.

Light on the palate for a dark beer, it's on the light side of medium bodied but still very smooth and surprisingly crisp & refreshing.

A well-balanced beer that is great tasting and goes down really well. It is up there with the best of the style I have sampled thus far.

Reviewed from notes.
I had this on tap in a german restaurant. Hazy colour, that of honey or Long Island Iced Tea cocktail. @ finger foam which lasted for quite long. Few bubbles rising to the top. Aroma is of fruits, mostly bananas. Taste is only a bit bitter and fruity. Medium thin in body.
Decent one.

This beer pours a brown murky color with a fine lacy head, which sticks to the glass and leaves rings on the glass.

Smell is full of caramel and ripe bananas, not much cloves though. Slightly sweet smell.

Taste is sweet with mild caramel maltiness. I like the definate malt presence and the mild phenolic taste. The yeast appears to be not strong in the banana and even more in the clove department. There is a very light musty flavor to it. The beer is dry but not astringent as most weizens. Drinkability is good.

Best before 08-09-05. Poors in with huge and lasting head and has nice amber to brown beercolor.
Nose is hard to get cause of the ernormous and forever lasting foam but is nice and estery; although not too many banana's like some have. Further sour and malty with noticeable the wheat. Taste is rich too; maltyness, fruityness with banana, sour notes and litle maltsweet with caramellic note. Aftertaste is yeasty, litle hops but plesant. Mouthfull is enormous; all this taste and then the huge amount of CO2 with it making it a feest to drink so drinkability is very good too! In my opinion a good brew however more a mixture of a regular and a dark weizen.

Haxel color verging on chocolate. Huge 2 finger head, biege - reciedes to a 1/2 clinging finger. The beer is translucent, but shows active beading along the sides.

- nose is on par for a weissbier. Mostly cloves. It is almost cloying sweet - aybe i tire of the weiss. Strong esters in the nose and taste. Not as sublte of some of the better beers in this style but still enjoyable. Creamy mouthfeel, but a little too much carb-bite.

Earthy brown color...wait, no, deep orange in the light, mostly hazy, and blessed with a huge, snow-white head, delicately lacey,leaving traces in it's wake.
Aroma: light and airy, with breezy citric notes, cloves and other spices.
Taste: a bit of a dud. Nice, raisiny, nutty dark flavor, but it doesn't last long, barely a blip, actually. Light bodied, no texture, finish is a touch sweet before it disappears in an instant.
Too bad, I'd hoped for more...don't we always though?
