My favorite Hefe-Weizen!

I've tried this many times on tap at the Huettenbar in Chicago, but have not seen it in bottles until my trip to Meyer Delicatessen just up the street from the Huettenbar.

Pours a light amber with quite a hazy body. The head is substantial and rocky. Some lacing in the glass.

Smell is light clove, bread, and green bananas.

The taste is just smooth and refreshing to me. Everything I like in a wheat beer. A light banana flavor with some clove to give it a nice balance. Nice and round with some hints of bubblegum. Lovely!

Mouthfeel is damn near perfect. Smooth, soft, and supple!

Give me this on any hot day!

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
