A very unique weizen. The color is darker than most, pouring an amber, almost brownish color that looks like "apple cider" and has the haze to go along with it. The head is white and foams up into a "rocky, mountainous peak" yet is actually quite thin. The effervescence is high (though not as high as some other leading Bavarian hefe's) and the bubbles are astonishingly tiny, forming a very tight - but light - foamy head. The mouthfeel is similar in many ways to the head with it's very fine bubbles that give a gentle zest - but appearing thinner than some other examples. The yeast character is more restrained than it is in many weizens, in terms of both flavor and aroma. The nose expresses a sharp fruitiness, with less banana than many hefe's. The clove character is clearly present but subtle, and there's an uncommon note of a bready-spiciness... maybe nutmeg? The sweetness of the flavor is restrained in comparison to many. Again, the banana is limited but the clove is present and leaves a slight spice in your mouth at the finish. A sublime weizen. Instantly recognizable. Quite refreshing.

Serving type: on-tap
