Had on-tap at Bier Garden Asheville. Served in a tapered glass.

A- Pours a hazy light amber color with a 1/4 inch white head that retains a bit before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a small side patch of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring behind.

S- Good whiff of banana and spice. Slightly effervescent.

T- Tons of banana, bubble gum and spice. Wheaty, yeasty, rich. Cannot believe this is 7.7% ABV. Semisweet.

M- Milky texture with a proper amount of carbonation (medium) and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- A premium example of the style at a non-premium price of $3.50. What a steal. Asheville's Bier Garden isn't the first place I suggest to have a beer when in town but they sneak in some nice specials here and there and have a very decent selection.

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.
