Poured from 12oz bottle into hefe glass.

A: A hazy dark straw color with huge foam that doesn't want to subside. Small bubbles keep the foam on.

S: Beautiful yeast, spices and wheat in the smell.

T: Malt, spice, yeast with very light hops. Some sweet and spice in the aftertaste.

M: Light mouthfeel with good carbonation.

O: Excellently executed, refreshing to drink

I got this the other day because the store was out of Paulaner. The store guy recommended it. No comparison to Paulaner. too much hint of alcohol in taste. Did not taste like a wheat beer to me.
