Chilled bottle poured into a Franziskaner glass.
Immediate result is a thick and creamy head that shows good retention and promises strong carbonation. The head stays constant at first necessitating several pours to transfer the entire contents of the bottle to the glass, however it gradually fades away quicker and quicker until a thin covering with moderate to little lacing.
Held to the light the hue is a softly opaque amber that resembles the look of autumn maple leaves.
Smell is decidedly heavy with wheat and peppered with malt. Fruit notes are also strong with banana and pears being the most present.
The taste has malt character, those banana and pear notes transfer through to the taste buds. The mouthfeel is crisp on a weak body with a complimentary degree of carbonation. The taste holds with only a small syrup like sensation but quickly moves into a dry alcohol finish.
Good beer but not the best in the Hefe-Weiss category
Serving type: on-tap
