Love hefe's in the warmer weather. Enjoyed the Tucher Krystal Weizen, and the Hefe is just as good.

A - Pale gold, moderate haze, huge, fluffy white head that lasts forever.

S - Complex mix of bread, toasty wheat malt and banana esters. Little clove or other phenolics. No hops.

T - Similar to aroma. Bready wheat malt with low but enough hop bitterness to support. Noticeable tartness adds to the refreshing quality. No hop flavor. Plenty of banana ester, little clove.

M - Medium-light body, high carbonation. Tartness dries out the finish.

O - One of my new favorites of this style. Would like a bit more clove, but really nice as is.

.5L pour into Weizen glass, JFK airport

A- Golden yellow, hazy. Some white highlight. White head doesn't retain.

S- Bananas, clove. A bit of booze, actually, and some yeast.

T- Wheaty, grainy. A bit of fruit and yeast. A tad spicy.

M- Carb is more apparent. Smooth and wet though.

O- Decent. I think the CO2 from the draft takes away from Weizens.
