Drank from the only glass I could find at the time (Duvel) that brought out some subtle flavors, but still not much of a banana taste, which is a good thing if you ask me.

Refreshing summer time drink, if you like wheat beers, you'll not want to pass this one up.

3rd Birmingham pub of 18th September 2012 mini-crawl: The Barton Arms.

After a pint of Oakhams JHB I thought I’d have a change of direction and had a half-pint of this fine Weizen: it was poured into a small Krombacher Weizen glass and looked a picture. I enjoyed it just as much as I did its bottled version back in 2008.

Orange and misty look to it: strong aromas of vanilla, bananas and semi-sour citrus fruits.

Tasted just right; everything you’d expect in a good quality Weizen, but with a little bit extra thrown in. Flavoursome and perfectly balanced between tart bitterness and fruity refreshment.

Pours cloudy amber beer with huge and compact white head, aroma of banana, clove, lollipops and wheat malt, slightly biscuity. Taste is round, essential, classic for weissbiers, some tartness in the finish.

Comes out of the tap a hazy honey-golden with a thick, pale honey head. Rich, nose-filling wheaty aroma has a firm citrus undertone that is sweet and mainly lemon. Rich, wheaty flavor has yeasty and sweet lemon tones and hints of orange and grass. Lively, fizzy, full-bodied texture completes one of the best wheat beers I have ever enjoyed.
