It was good variation of a Weizen. It seemed to be a little adjunct for this style but it wasn’t bad. I am not sure if this is going to make sense but it poured into weizen glass with a clean golden haziness. There was a nice amount of white carbonation. The aroma was grainy but not as much wheat character as one might think there should be. After the hay like grain aroma settles down you get some tones of fruit and spice. The flavor has some clove and pepper but is for the most part mild. I felt the body was a little bit too watery for this style.

Bottle pours a hazy banana liqueuer with half an inch of white foam and offers decent lace.

Nose of wheat and a bit of coarse grain. Offers a touch of lemon and a notable spice component. Much more of a Witbier than a Hefeweizen in the aroma.

Taste follows the aroma with a subtle peppery spice and a pleasant feel and carbonation. Spice factors are limited but present, placing this brew a bit at odds to any style per se.

Overall not a bad quaffer. Offers a nice yet subtle spice character though no Bavarian influence. Not overly fruity and lacking much nuance but easy on the palate nonetheless.

Bottle of 300 ml at home, poured into a small weizen glass.
Colour is honey like, only much more pale.Non transparent.Head is huge, as expected, three fingers at least. Creamy, white in colour, good retention. Lots of activity in the glass.After a while head becomes one finger in height and stays like thaat for the rest of the session.
Fruity aroma, sweet. Mostly citrus fruits, some bubblegum and bananas too.
Taste is fruity too, with the banana flavor being much more obvious.
Thin on the body for a weizen, with carbonation being as much as needed.
Overall a good weizen, in a reasonable price.
