A: poured into a chalice to a clear and bright yellow with a finger and a half of dense head that retains well and leaves minimal lacing
S: smells of wheat, bready yeast and lemony tartness
T: taste is tart lemons, a little fruity, creamy wheat and the swallow is more lemony and lactic tartness with a little more wheat
M: fairly light but not watery with plentiful carb that isn't prickly and a slightly drying finish
O:Overall this is a well crafted beer with great flavors and seems to hit all the marks for the style. I prefer hottenroth a little more but this one is much easier to find on the shelves.

This one pours a very cloudy pale golden color that looks as if it were in front of a white sheet of paper. The head is a thick fluffy white that is more than reasonably long lived with a moderate lacing down the glass.

The nose is tart and citrus with oranges, lemon and grapefruit in the mix. The malt s a dry experience to the nose that has sour notes and fruity undertones with a tinge of hopping.

The taste is effervescent, crisp and tangy with the sour notes under the citrus and strong lemony flavor. The hops are subtle but that is fine.

The mouthfeel is almost perfect and delivers this one to the palate very effectively.

Overall this one is exceptionally good and a fantastic Weiss. I highly recommend it and can't wait to get more.

Cloudy straw colored pour with a foamy white one-finger head. Has a strong yeasty aroma with hints of lemon. Really nice light lemon tart flavor backed by mild yeast and biscuit. Light bodied with medium carbonation. Near perfect example of the style.
