As I poured this beer into a glass the fruity smell was strong and the color was a great hazy yellow/tan. I was excited to taste it.
Mmmmm... first sip was yeasty with a slight sour finish. Swishing it around a bit in my mouth brought hints of the alcohol in it. Second sip, it was still good. Alcohol seems a bit more up front with sour finish more obvious.
By the time I finished the glass,all I could taste was the alcohol to start and on the finish, the sour taste was overpowering everything else, hinting of a dish soap flavor.
Since this was a bomber, I gassed and capped the rest. I guess one glass at a time is enough for me. This is the only Weihenstephaner I would have to think twice about buying again.

On tap @ Library Alehouse.
A: Pours a cloudy dark yellow with a half-inch thick white head which fades slowly to a thin cap and leaves spots of lace.
N: Estery, cloves, bananas, wheaty, faint bacon.
T: Sweetish malts balanced well with estery fruits, bananas, cloves, with a mild ABV heat and a nice woodyness.
M: Medium body and semi-medium carbonation. Fruity, estery and wheaty finish.
O: Hard to describe how intricate this beer is. Almost a cognac-like thing happening which is probably from a magical combination of the wheat and malts. An interesting "big" weizen. Again, why have I not tried this before. Really liked. Give it a try.
