This beer poured with almost no head, which then died to nothing immediately making this a very low-carbonation beer. This sample definitely seemed past its prime. The aroma was pleasant with big bubblegum and banana blended with soft wheat malt. The smooth wheat malt flavor has hints of bubblegum plus pleasant clove phenols and banana esters. The appearance was as expected with a light haze from the wheat malt. The bottle I reviewed was unfortunately almost completely flat and so missed the lively character expected of a Bavarian Wheat. However, the recipe seemed almost perfect, and had it had carbonation, it may well have scored in the low 90s.
