Notes & Commercial Description:

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.

3.76/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours like a hefe should, with a massive head topping the hazy goldenstraw liquid; sticks like a champ and leaves clumpy lacing

Smell: Wheat bread tang, vanilla, bubblegum and green banana

Taste: Wheat bread with a tart edge, with the vanilla influence becoming rather distinct; bubblegum develops in the middle, along with the green banana tones; grassy elements arrive after the swallow

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: This beer has all of the elements of a classic hefe and then some but I can't say that I am really enjoying it; I don't like the mouthfeel and it lacks the clove character to complement the fruity esters

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.
