Clear, pale golden beer with a dense foamy head that recedes to a cap and stays around for a while. Nice bands of lacing on the glass. Aroma is banana, grass, wheat and bready yeast. The nice light body feels more substantial due to the nice carbonation. Tastes of banana spiciness and bit of tartness with a hint of lemon zest and clove. Finishes clean with very mild bitterness.

Had out of the 0.5L bottle into a weizen glass at the Schnitzel Bude in Berlin on July 23rd. Poured light golden and free of any yeast cloudiness. Smell was your typical weizen but a bit subdued. Tastes great, though. I think a lot of folks aren't giving this one credit. It doesn't pack the hefeweizen yeast punch, but it is not supposed to. This one is very balanced between the sweetness, the wheat, and the yeast. Super refreshing and easy to drink.

500mL bottle into a here glass
Bottle number: 17 L 14 (whatever that means)


A: Crystal clear (see what I did there), very pale light yellow, 3+ fingers width of dense bright white head which has great retention before dissipating down but leaves only a few small patches of lacing. 4

S: Banana and clove, wheat, spice, ton of fruity esters, really great nose. 4.25

T: Like the nose, lots of fruity esters. Banana is prominent, spice is much more tame with just some clove, lots of wheat characters. 4

M/D: Medium body, carbonation on the heavier side but is appropriate, its quite filling for a low ABV beer. 4

O: Enjoyable beer. I’d have this one again. 4
