Impression: According to some cryptic hand-written notes, I’d had this on one of my early trips to Bamberg in the 90s. I finally gave it another shot after many years and glad I did. It came in a cool kind of retro logo Weissbier glass. It’s very lightly smoky with some classic banana overtones. It’s surprisingly dry and the finish has fair bitterness, especially for the style.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
