look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a half liter bottle into a tall Weizen glass.

Appearance: Deep golden and hazy, so cloudy that no light gets through (although, I do swirl the bottles to get all the yeast mixed in for the extra flavor). One to two finger head with nice sticky lacing.

Smell: Ahhh, lovely. Sweet yeast with bananas, bubblegum, cloves. This is a "real deal" Hefeweizen.

Taste: As good as it smells. This Hefe, along with Weihenstephaner, are the creams of the crop for German Hefeweizens. I love the sweet and spicy phenols in this Hefe, and the taste finishes crips and refreshing. This one is all about the yeast.

Mouth feel: Smooth and creamy, with just the right bite of carbonation on the finish.

Drinkability: The fact that I drank this one all over Germany while waiting on trains back in the 80's, and have had hundreds (thousands?) over the years since says it all. This is a world class Hefe and one of my favorites.

Serving type: bottle
