Head: white, creamy
Nose: smoky banana
Palate: balanced, some banana, light smoke
Finish: lingering, semi-dry, semi-bitter
Served: from a bottle at the brewery
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.
