A 500ml bottle with a BB of May 2012.

Poured into a tulip pint glass. A pale golden hue; initially clear but much more translucent after the final addition of yeast from the bottle (swirled to agitate). Highly effervescent. Produces a huge head of creamy white foam with good retention; this eventually reduces to a decent surface layer. Aroma of sweet, yeasty malt with subtle notes of bananas, cloves and a general fruitiness.

Tastes of light, sweet malt with a dry, yeasty finish. Notes of wheat malt, bananas, cloves and yeast esters, with the faintest hint of noble hops is the background. Mouthfeel is smooth, full-bodied and slightly astringent. Leaves the palate dry, with an aftertaste of earthy yeast.

A decent and drinkable weissbier, though not the best representative of the style. The classic notes, such as banana and clove esters, are muted. I quite enjoy this beer, and it makes a good alternative to industrial lagers, but there are less commercial versions out there. A solid choice if the alternatives are rubbish.
