4.25/5 rDev +5.2%
12oz bottle served in a hefeweizen glass 9/1/2014.
A- Hazy, darker golden body with tons of carbonation emanating from within. Four finger white head, dense and thick with good retention. It eventually drops into a thick film and collar that doesn't go away for a while. Lots of rings of lacing. As far as I'm concerned, this is a classic hefeweizen appearance. [4.25]
S- Banana, clove, bubblegum, wheat, pale malt. Classic hefeweizen, strong nose. [4.25]
F- Wheat, freshly baked bread, bananas, cloves. A bit of noble hops round things out at the end. Not as much bubblegum as in the nose. Very flavourful, yet not terribly bitter. [4.25]
M- Medium-lighter body, plenty of carbonation. Not bitter, slightly dry and very refreshing. [4.25]
O- Very good example of a Bavarian hefeweizen, harkens back to my time living in Munich. Recommended especially if you find it fresh. [4.25]
Final score: 4.25

A: Pours a cloudy dark golden yellow in color with light to moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and some faint medium yellow highlights. The beer has a four finger tall dense foamy beige head that slowly reduces to medium to large sized finger thick cap surrounded by a very thick film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light to moderate aromas of banana + clove from the yeast as well as some lighter notes of wheat and hints of bubble gum. The aroma intensifies as the beer warms.
T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of wheat malts along with some lighter flavors of bready malts. That is followed by moderate flavors of banana and a light presence of clove from the yeast contribution. Minimal amounts of bitterness which fades pretty quickly.
M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Smooth.
O: Easy to drink and sessionable - reminds me of my many visits to Bavaria over the years, where much of this was consumed. Very enjoyable and a very good example of the style.

This was my favorite beer in college. I've had a lot of Hefeweizens and similar beers with citrus notes but this hands down takes the number one spot. Especially during the summer months. A very refreshing beer on its own or with Chinese or Korean food.
