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.

This is my favorite wheat beer of all time. The flavors are deep and rich.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance- Golden with an amber streak through the middle. Pours a one finger creamy white head.

Aroma- Subtle smells of wheat and sweetness.

Taste- Muted and bland as a whole. Some banana, some orange, slight peppery yeast, and mild wheat flavors. Nothing really jumps out in this beer.

Feel- A crisp snap from the yeast. Pleasant to drink with an overall creamy/smooth texture.

Overall- Maybe age has effected this, i'm not sure, but the flavors are muted compared to other german hefes that I've had. Still a solid beer that I'll give another chance just to make sure this is an accurate assessment, so I recommend trying it just for the sake of comparison to other hefe's if anything. (80/100)

Fruity, Wheat, Banana, Clove, Medium-bodied
Germany- Hefeweizen it is
golden-orange colored wheat beer with soft banana and spice notes on the nose
a citrus note on the palate. It is light in body with a refreshing finish.
malt and barley is genuine sincere presence
orange and lemon jelly with banana-apple saux
barley and malt is frutti and genuine Freshness
