A guy at Florian's, seeing me with an armload of beer and wine, asked if I liked wheat beer and recommended this. It's the best, he said. He was happy to finally see it in Maine. I couldn't say no to that.
Poured with a head that filled most of the glass. It took 5 pours over 10 minutes to get the full pint into a 23 oz. wheat beer glass. At the end, it was cloudy gold with a pillowy head.
I spent the wait taking in the bouquet of cloves, hops and lemon.
Taste was milder than I expected. Not a lot of yeast esters, but instead clean citrus and cloves coming through. Still, it was crisp and refreshing.
And smooth. This is a big-bodied weizen and it goes down so easy.
Even though it's a sessionable strength, this feels a bit heavy to drink more than a few pints. This would be great with a light meal, though. Maybe a chef's salad.

I had this beer once in a four pack that a friend bought for me and was very impressed
Normally, I am not impressed with hefes in bottles, but this was an exception
Poured a nice three finger German head into a wheat beer german glass. Head was impressive, lasted and very distinctive German weissbier mushroom top bloom. beautiful hazy yellow.
Aromas of cloves, bananas and just a faint third spice (grains of paradise?)
Taste follows the nose, with just a hint more citrus
Mouthfeel is full but crisp and refreshing
Overall, I think this is my favorite Hefe-weissen in a bottle. My only regret is that I look for it all the time, and it is hit or miss, the Dunkle is usually whats in stock at least in Atlanta….It left a good impression, because I look for it all the time
