Picked this up at a great beer shop in Darmstadt, Germany, Maruhn Welt der Getränke. Cloudy yellow-orange pour with a two finger foamy pure white head with decent retention and lacing. The nose is classic Weizen with spicy wheat up front along with hints of banana, clove, lemon, caramel, yeast, and grass. The taste is bold, spicy, and extremely rich with lots of sweet caramel malt along with hints of banana bread, lemon, clove, pear, apple cider, yeast, and grass. The mouthfeel is really thick and chewy with perfect carbonation and a nice tangy finish. Overall, this is definitely the most flavorful Weizen I've ever had. Having lived in Germany for 13 years and only recently re-visiting Weizens, I'm kicking myself. I've really become a big fan of these beers and will definitely stock up on this gem!

Appearance is a golden yellow with a foamy head.
Aroma is banana bread, bananas foster. Grainy.
Taste is less banana and more bread but still really good. Maybe some spices or clove.
Mouthfeel is crisp with good carbonation.
Great example of the style.

Had this on Tap with some German Sausage and it was the perfect paring.

Appearance was great..smell very good some banana maybe some cloves. good head nice bready taste but not too much. very refreshing and easy drinking.

I guess when you make a beer for over 1000 years you master your craft.

Cheers
