12 oz. bottle poured into a weizen glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy orange gold with a big white head that recedes to about two inches and hangs around a bit.

Aroma: Smells of citrus, wheat, oranges and spices.

Taste: Now this is a terrific wheat beer. It's full of the signature flavors - citrus dominates, and there's no reason for a dippy orange slice. Just a really tasty wheat ale.

Mouthfeel: This is an area where this beer really excels. It's super smooth and a pleasure to drink. Great stuff.

Overall: Superb beer. I had a Blue Moon yesterday; comparing that to this is like comparing a second grade performance of Robin Hood to The Deer Hunter.

I have to give it a 5! It is the best weissbeir on the planet. Pours hazy orange. Head pour depends on how you want it an if you want to get the yeast off the bottom. Banana, orange, spices, light clove. This is the beer years ago that got me into branching out into European beers. The best balanced Weiss. My wife even likes it! I still remember where and when I had it and I fell in love with all of it. The mouth feel and perfect creamy head poured into hotel coffee paper cup wakes me up at night. I can't decide if I will retire in west coast hoppy land, or Old town Germany living out life as brewery hand.

A favourite style of beer, a very good example.

I have nothing to add to the previous review, but to say this one of the better examples out there.
