look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a weizen glass at a German pub in Northeast China.

Appearance was orange-ish, tan, and murky. Creamy 2 finger white head that thinned out to a cream top; some sticky lace on the glass.

Smell was sweet; light; spice; some elements of banana and clove; perhaps some breadfruit. some wheat and yeast were there, too.

Taste was caramel malt, light wheat, and toffee; perhaps some lemon zest, light fruit, and biscuits. Christmas spice, yeast, clove, and fluffy banana bread underneath the spice. The backend was balanced by some dry, yet sweet undertones. The overall balance between dry, sweet, and wet make it a great warm weather beverage, IMO. Great tasting brew.

Mouthfeel was somewhat thin; refreshing and lighter bodied. I could definitely drink a couple of these, no problem. A nice creamy mouthfeel, too. Quite nice.

Overall this is one of the better weissbiers out there. I would love to drink this in the warmer spring months. It just reminds me of a warm weather beer, not a deep winter beer. Drinking this reminded me of a time when green leaves were growing back on the trees, birds were chirping again, spring flowers were in full bloom, and the sun began to intensify. Wow, I need summer again. Drink this beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A- muddy amber. Some carbonation can be seen rapidly rising amidst the yeasty haze. Fluffy light tan head. Great retention, beautiful lacing.

S- yeast, and lots of it. It also has aromas of lemon and banana.

T- bready, yeasty, some vague fruitiness. Citrus, and caramel.

M- light, velvety carbonation. Creamy finish.

O- good, but it lacks depth.
