Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: KI9A on 02-02-2011

The unmistakable characteristics of this Bavarian Weissbier are achieved with a yeast that is decidedly fruity and phenolic. You may note clove, nutmeg or even vanilla and/or banana-like aromas and flavors.

Poured a hazy blonde color, reminicent of an old girlfriend. Uniform cloudiness as per the norm with this style. A low head with minimal lacing. I detected a light yeasty aroma, clean and fresh, with notes of banana, cloves, and a touch of orange.

I absolutely love the combination of clove and nutmeg evident in this solid weissbier from UCBC. It reminds me of a similar taste in a Paulaner variety, the name of which I can't recall. I'm going to enjoy this one on hot summer evenings! (487 characters)

Hazy yellow straw in color. A fingernail of white foam rests on top. Banana ester aroma is very compelling. The mouthfeel is a bit thin for me. The taste starts of with the wheat and banana flavoring. The finish is brisk, but fulfilling. I like the look and the aroma but that felt like a tease. (295 characters)

look: 2.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Pours a slightly hazed gold with 1" of eggshell colored head (vigorous pour). No head retention or lacing

S: Cloves & green banana

T: Follows the nose, some ripe banana, white grapes & pears along some juicy fruit up front. More juicy fruit & pears, plus a little tartness & dryness as this warms, green banana & cloves as well. Finishes with some dryness, juicy fruit & cloves

MF: Medium bodied with lively carbonation

Easy drinker, fairly spot on for the style, easily the best beer I've had from these guys (514 characters)

Poured from 500 ml bottle into nonic pint. No visible bottle date.

A: Pours light yellow with 2-3 finger soapy white head that settles quickly to a thin cap. Some light lacing.

S: Banana, clove, nutmeg, bubblegum, and cracker malts.

T: Bready malts with a hint of banana sweetness. Some grassy funk, and faint spices - clove, and nutmeg. I get a little bubblegum flavor in the finish,

M: Medium body with a good amount of carbonation. I was expecting it to be a light lighter.

O: Easy drinking nice beer. I might have preferred the spices to be a bit more pronounced, but enjoyable still. (601 characters)

This was pretty good, but not the best of the style. It just seems like it is currently about 7/10 of what this style should be. If you want a milder version, this would be it.

Would drink again, probably won't seek out or purchase again. (240 characters)
