This hefeweizen pours a golden color with a large head with excellent retention. The smell is all about the wheat and some citrus. Flavors of wheat, yeast, and some coriander and banana are muted, and you won't taste much more than the wheat unless the beer has warmed up a bit. The taste is pleasant, but this could be described as a delicate beer, as they don't hit you as strongly as in my hefeweizens, and it may because the wheat flavor is so strong that some of the ingredients are concealed. Spice is minimal. This is a creamy beer, and its thickness is a bit unusual for the style. There's some crispness there as well, but overall the mouthfeel just doesn't quite work for me, although many who generally avoid wheat ales may find the mouthfeel quite nice.

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.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Thank you to my brother for bringing this one back from Germany for me.

Appearance: Clear yellow with a thick white head. Mild lacing on the glass.

Smell: Strong smell of cloves and grassy notes.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Very smooth light bodied. Taste of cloves, wheat and mild hops.

Overall: Not a bad Hefeweizen. I would have loved to have actually had this in Germany, but getting right from Germany will do!

Slightly cloudy with good head. Sweet and tasty in your mouth with no bitterness or after taste.

One of my favorite beers, very fully-tasted, a great wheat taste, not yet (that) strong. A nice 'wheaty' smell, great mouth feel. Darker with a stronger taste than 'whiter' wheat beers, recommended to follow after drinking whiter/clearer one(s) or not to follow this one with on of those. Like a lot the simpleness of the presentation, with a drunken brewer monk and the golden, black and white colors.
