Nice bier...would like to do a side-by-side with Paulaner... Cloudy golden/orangey color....I made sure to swirl the bottle up to get the yeasties....gave a creamy, but small, head (which did last a while). Clove, banana, a bit of citrus in the nose. Verry nice taste....combo of the above flavors with a hint of malt...nice blend. Quite decent body and smoothness. Goes down well on a warm Spring (or Summer...) day! Prosit!

The head on this hazy-orange seducer towered above my pilsener glass at least an inch without letting go one delightful drop of hefeweiss. Lemony nose. More clove-like in taste with a somewhat clinging tart finish. Not the best hefe but, in the end, as drinkable as most. (271 characters)

Presentation: Sleek 16 oz brown euro style bottle, no freshness date.

Appearance: With this sample the yeast was swirled and decanted into the glass. Very cloudy pale orange with a creamy white lace.

Smell: Soft oily clove on the nose, fruity and lively with hints of earthy yeast.

Taste: Medium bodied that is meshed well with a marvelously textured mouth feel. Light lemon twang with a very evident snappy spicy clove are followed by warming fruity esters and a fresh baked cracker malt flavour. Hop bitterness is nearly non-existent which is perfect for the style. An earthy yeast character picks up the finish and lends a nutty flavour.

Notes: A little robust and lively, a hard Hefeweizen to beat. Goes really well with a smoked ham and havarti with spicy mustard on marbled rye … a.k.a. a great lunch time brew. (835 characters)
