Found in a supermarket in Berlin. Pours a hazy light orange colour with a lovely foamy head that leaves lacings. Aromas of banana, clove & wheat. Tastes of banana, peach, mild citrus, clove & wheat. Aftertaste is of a mild banana wheat bitterness. Overall much better than I expected, and one I could have had a second of quite easy.

Nice pour, but flavor and aroma leave something to be desired. Standard weizen aromas and flavors, but a lot fainter than in some of its competitors. Surprised at the high ratings, as I don’t think it’s that good.....After all I’ve read, I’m a bit disappointed

500ml bottle. Can’t decipher the code date. Appearance: Deep golden/light brown, cloudy, with a thick long lasting white head. Aroma: Bready, wheat, spicy clove yeast. Banana is there but on the low side for a hefe. Taste: Sweet bready and wheat maltiness, light citrus, pear, and moderately high clove spice. Low banana character and low bitterness. Mouthfeel: Medium body with light creaminess and moderate carbonation Finish: Dry and a little sticky on the tongue, with lingering pear and clove. Overall: An easy drinking, refreshing hefe. Nice body and clove aroma and flavor. Taste is on the sweeter side with a lower banana character than others in the style.

16.9 oz. bottle poured into wheat-beer glass

L: turbid gold with plenty of amber, dark for a hefe, with a massive rush of foam that fills the top bulb of the glass quickly; much clearer than it seemed at first and showing all kinds of activity in the glass, hundreds of bubbles grouping then gathering speed and flying up the column to create a thick 1/4- to 1/3-inch skin of offwhite/beige foam, some sticking ... the foam on this thing is incredible; an easy 5

S: sour grain, sour banana ... has a slight tartness to it; rust, dust; sweetens as it warms; definitely a "sour" note in this one, very odd ... it's the second bottle I've tried, and the first bottle gave off nothing but sweet notes, like a caramel-dipped banana; this one doesn't have that same sweetness; as it warms, more of the sweet malt shows up

T: lots of banana with a slight toasted malt aftertaste; some grain; a little spice, clove; the toasted flavor grows as we go, but it's still subtle

F: crisp at first, becomes silkier as you go; the carbonation releases so fast and strongly that you drink through a skin early, softening it a bit; solid midweight

O: great hefe ... even the bit of sourness in the nose can't ruin what's been two fantastic pints of this beer separated by about a week; the first pint definitely had a better aroma, lots of caramel sweetness around the banana; the pour is amazing, and the head it pushes up is impressive; the occasional toasted notes are nice ... at times, it's a bit like a graham cracker/banana treat; a great beer I'll be seeking out again

L- Hazy bright golden body with an incredible 3 fingers of foamy compact white head. Looks like a nitro beer, long persistence.
S- Wheat, banana, spices.
T- White bread, lemon, wheat, clove, spices, pear.
F- Well carbonated, rich, silky.
O- Very good beer. Smell and taste could be a bit better.
