Intro: A 500ml bottle with a best before date of 28th February 2016 and poured into a Riedel weizen glass.
Appearance: It poured a cloudy bronze copper colour with a slightly less than two finger white head that dissipated slowly without too much lacing.
Aroma: Sweet approaching overripe bananas and clove dominate with hints of bubblegum, caramel, toffee and maybe even pear. The toffee becomes even more pronounced as it warms a bit.
Taste: Banana bread is the first thing that comes to mind, but its definitely sweet banana and toffee with hints of clove and caramel while nutty on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
Overall: A very nice hefeweizen that I would definitely buy again.
