$2.49, Green’s on Ponce de Leon, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Poured into the Southampton Weizen glass, this has a head that looks superb. Initially huge, it dies slowly to give a rocky and pitted perfect froth. Surprisingly little lacing. Typical cloudy orange body underneath.
Aroma has some bananas, but there seems to be a spiced overtone to it as well – maybe some apples? As it warms the bananas become increasingly apparent.
The tastes are mainly muted bananas. What I like about this beer is it is quintessential for the style. Ask me what a Dunkel should be – this is it. Maybe I should have scored it 5 across the board, but my ratings are not only style based.
Nice round mouthfeel – satisfying and refreshing and light. Surprisingly light actually. Delicious.
Drinakability is excellent, a lovely example and a quality beer.
