Bought at People's Liquour Warehouse in Fall River

Poured from bottle to pint glass

Not sure of freshness and review might not be completely accurate as it is somewhere between cold and room temperature.

Appearance: Exactly as you'd expect from the style. Cloudy golden orange. Poured a nice two finger foamy head that dissipated rather quickly leaving a nice ring around the outside. Tiny bubbles. No lacing

Aroma: Wheat, cloves, faint banana

Taste: Follows the nose. Clove heavy (maybe since it's room temp), crisp wheat, very subdued banana at first - more flavor towards the bottom seemingly

Mouthfeel: Crisp, light, somewhat creamy

Overall: Great example of a true heffeweizen. I feel like a lot of American heffe's miss their mark. Personally, I'm a fan of the style and like to try a new one when I see it. Have yet to be disappointed by a German heffe. Would definitely revisit this one (901 characters)

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. (658 characters)

4/5  rDev 0%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Format: standard German 500mL macro brown bottle and standard label.

Appearance: pours a deep, cloudy amber with a big and fluffy head per the style. Drops to a finger or so of creamy pure white. Decent lacing down the glass.

Aroma: banana, cloves and spices, quality wheat and yeasts. Smells exactly as a traditional German hefe ought.

Aroma: some citrus joins the characteristics on the nose - quite a nice addition. All told a well-rounded flavour profile.

Taste: all of those flavours come through on the finish. Quite sweet, with a pleasant yeast and alcohol warmth.

Aftertaste: again spot-on. Medium in body with a full feel and decent moderate carbonation.

Mouth feel: a case of 20 x 500mL is AU$75, so an equivalent case of 24 x 330mL would be around AU$59. pretty good for a beer of this calibre.

Overall: a great quality traditional German Hefeweizen from one of their best breweries in my opinion. A good selection of flavours with a touch of citrus thrown in for good measure. A great price too at AU$75 a case of 20 x 500mL. (1,045 characters)

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! (448 characters)

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. (402 characters)
