This review is a long time coming as I’ve been drinking 'Old World' repeatedly for over a year now. As good a time as any.
Into a Paulaner tulip, pours a white foamy head atop an orange, golden body. Dancing bubbles as I swirl, head pouring big initially but nary to return.
Aromas of honey, bananas, and cloves. Wonderful bouquet, though lower in intensity.
Flavors foremost of wheat with strong hints of dried bananas, cloves, and this nice, bready taste that adds substantial body and complexity.
Thinner mouthfeel, even as I swish.
Overall, this nearly stands (on its heels at least) with Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier - I love 'Old World' that much. A couple of components outside of the flavoring could improve (e.g., appearance and aroma intensity) and even the flavor itself could use a little more refinement, but the complexity is so rich and tasty that I could drink at least two to three per sitting.
