(OK)
Pours with a very cloudy appearance, light yellow in colour, very good head that sticks around. Great looking hefe.

Banana aromas, sweet and wheaty with a lot of fragrance. Par for the course really, but very pleasant.

Taste has a lot of sweet characters, nice bitterness towards the back and a light spice character. Fair amount of banana, taste is overall a little bit sweet for my liking, need more spice, the sweetness strangles everything. Feel is a bit thin and flat.

Drinkable though, and enjoyable.

(Superb)

Beautiful pale cloudy honey-lemon yellow with a frothy rocky head of pure white. Decent carbonation to keep the head alive. Very good looking hefe-styled beer.

Nose is excellent. Sweet banana clove esters, beautiful counterpointed against a zesty citrus Tettnanger hoppiness. Hints of organic grassiness. This is a genuine hefeweizen nose, comparable to the archetypes of the style.

Taste is also very very good, and beautifully true to style. A delicious sweet flavour of tropical fruits on the front palate, backed up by a subtle peppery aromatic hop characteristic, which finishes dry and refreshing. Mouthfeel is spritzy but buttery smooth.

What a wonderful brew. A true hefe, and a damn good one at that. I don't think I've seen a better example outside Germany, and this would hold its own against the best of them.
