Poured from a green bottle into an imperial pint. No freshness date.
Appearance: Frothy, big white head. A cloudy pale yellow with vibrant orange hues when held to light. Moderately bubbly. Very attractive hefeweizen.
Smell: Lots of banana with a little bubblegum and a hint of clove spiciness. Very fragrant.
Taste: Very clean taste with fruity phenols dominating over any wheaty flavor. Just a faint hint of a spice on the back nine, with a slight alcohol bite at the end.
Mouthfeel: On the light side, a very faint creaminess factor. Mouth feeling slightly dry as I drink this one, but just a little.
Drinkability: Very easy drinking here. Not too complex in the taste category, but a classic representation of the style. A very solid beer that I would enjoy quite well in the summer months. I'll be visiting this one again around July!

12 oz bottle was poured into a tulip glass.
Appearance: A one finger head wad poured that reduced to a puffy layer. It is a hazy pale orange with vision of tiny bubbles coming up through the glass.
Smell: Bready, banana, clove, spice, and vanilla.
Taste: Traditional Bavarian yeast with bready and vanilla notes from the malts.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied, refreshing, chewy, and medium carbonation.
Overall: It's been awhile since I have had this. Enjoyable and classic beer.

One of my favorite Weiss beers. Up there with the Weihenstephaners, Ayingers and Andechers. Has more of a spicy flavor than other Weiss beers as I get more copper/metal from the hefe (that's yeast in english). The appearance is cloudy and golden like a great weiss beer. Mouthfeel is tangy and smooth at the same time. Taste is a touch spicier and sweeter than other weiss beers such as Hacker and Paulaner. That's a positive. I love this beer and so should you.
When Bayern Munich play in the Champions League, I drink these bad boys all match long (about 3 to 4 half-liters) at the local bar that has it on tap. The monk on the bottle? That's an original art-deco Ludwig Hohlwein painting from the '30s. Oh yeah, they don't call it "Hefe Weizen" in Bavaria. It's called Weissbier! Now you know and order accordingly when you're next in Munich!
