ABV: 5.1% | IBUS: N/A | SRM: N/A What the brewer says

“What could be more plea­sur­able than quench­ing your thirst with a de­li­ciously yeasty Weiss­bier, and sa­vor­ing the tin­gling, fizzy sen­sa­tion in your mouth? With an al­co­holic con­tent of around 5.1% vol­ume, it’s pure, re­fresh­ing en­joy­ment.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “The wheat dom­i­nates, and the clove de­vel­ops as the beer warms. Then the ba­nana sweet­ness shows, along with some flo­ral and fruit-tree blos­som es­ters, and a flo­ral hops note. It has an earthy, oys­ter umami aroma that’s not un­pleas­ant.” Fla­vor: “Rich ba­nana sweet­ness, with im­mense chewy wheat. Grassy hops and bit­ter­ness are evenly bal­anced with the bready wheat malt and linger through the fin­ish. Yeast es­ters and phe­no­lics are in­ter­est­ing with­out dom­i­nat­ing. Some fusel high al­co­hols and light pork come through in the fin­ish.” Over­all: “What a nice ba­nana and yeast char­ac­ter. It goes re­ally well with the funky malt, chewy wheat body, ba­nana, and spici­ness. The hops dom­i­nate a bit more in the bit­ter­ness than in the fla­vor, more than you would find in typ­i­cal Ger­man in­ter­pre­ta­tions.”
