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.

The first in a series of beers drank during a get together the other night at a friends house. Side poured from the bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance - I do like the packaging, name is unique, should be interesting. Pours a very light, hazy yellow with a nice, two finger head that leaves a bit of lacing and hangs around for a couple of minutes.

Smell - Has your standard hefeweizen characteristics of crackers and a bit of fruitiness. There was a strong banana esters, phenols, and clove smell to it as well, making it unmistakable as to what they were going for.

Taste - Underwhelming, to say the least. The banana and cloves are certainly present, and it has a decent bready balance to it, but it just wasn't all there to me. There is a little bit of spice in there as well.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied, finishes clean and smooth. I liked this part of the beer probably the best. Went down real easy. Finished with a zip of clove and pepper.

Overall - This isn't a bad beer, but it certainly isn't anything to go pay a premium price for either. There are plenty of other good weizens out there for the same money. It was just a little underwhelming, felt like there was something missing. Condor recommended and approved, but I wouldn't make a special trip to the store for it.
