500mL bottle served into a weizen glass
Pours a very brown ale-like color. It's a moderately dark brown closer to the top of the glass, and more of a honey'd shade towards the bottom. A nice, frothy head of 2 fingers forms.
The aroma is pretty light, all things considered. There's plenty of hefeweizen character here: clove, banana. Some breadcrusts character (not toasted) bolsters things. There's also some stewed apple here...not dissimilar from an English ale.
The taste is a weaker version of the nose. Flavors of apple and breadcrust meld with the traditional hefeweizen flavors, but nothing stands out. It's not so much balanced as it is unassertive.
The mouthfeel is pretty light, almost watery. The carbonation level is fairly sharp, but a touch more body would help the dark wheat flavors shine.
Overall, this is pretty average for the style. It's a nice, affordable quaff for sure, though.
