Pours a deep cloudy hazy amber with quite a rapidly developing head that sits up very nicely.

Very pleasant clove and fruit aroma, minimal citrus. A slight sourness attacks the pallet and gives way to a mellow fruity caramel profile. Very bubbly mouthfeel, a little bit thin but not bad. Slightly spicy aftertaste.

Overall a pretty good beer, especially considering it cost less than a dollar a bottle as part of a Costco mixed 24 pack.

Prost-X. This stuff is goood! Thoght I was back in Bavaria but on steroids, SWEET!
Foggy nut type brown with a great white head with staying power.
Smell has lots of little side notes but pretty much strait-up weizen- NICE!
Taste is outstanding somewhat bready with all the little sweetness notes nice and malty with a touch of hoppiness-very cool!
Mouth was what you think kinda thick and almost chewy but carbonation keeps it under control in a very good way.
Drnk was GREAT very refreshing and not as heavy as I expected. Very Well Crafted Brew!

12oz. bottle bottled 37 days ago according to the date on the bottle. Perfect banana and clove flavors - intense without seeming fake or overpowering. Appealing coffee color. Lots of fine sediment. Not much hop flavor, but that seems consistent with the style. Exceptionally good, get it while it is fresh. Maybe the best beer GB makes?

My wife and I purchased a 6-pack from BevMo and was absolutely satisfied with the taste of this beer. From the minute you pour it into the glass you can see it is a nice wheat brown look with a great Hefeweizen smell to it.

When taking the 1st drink I knew that this was now my favorite beer. I was eating mexican food and the taste combined with the enchiladas was magnificent. The beer was a perfect match for the spicy taste. I finished the beer in about 4 gulps and wanted another 1 right away. All I can say is this a must beer for anyone. The smoothness that Gordon Biersch has perfected will be a delight for any beer drinker. Go ahead and give it a try.
