4.15/5 rDev -2.6%
poured into a New Belgium Globe.
Appearance: hazy straw yellow with a large white head. Thick lace on the side of the glass.
Smell: yeasty, malty, fruity, banana, touch of clove, and citrus.
Taste: Bananas, melons, mango, pears, white grapes, wheat, bready and slightly spicy yeast. Mild cloves and pepper in the finish.
Mouthfeel: light end of a medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Really soft carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, and super drinkable beer.
Overall: Another solid offering by the worlds oldest brewery. Carbonation is some great and i love the drinkability factor of this german style beer. Another tasty beer.

You generally do not find AWESOME beer in South Korea but I have found it. It is this lovely beer which is called "of life" in Latin.
Bought in a German 500mL bottle.
Appearance: Exceptional head, golden body that is hazy with yeast. the creamy white head lingers and laces the glass.
Smell: Malty grains, citrus, and potency(booze). lemony smell towards the end.
Taste: Citrusy hops, golden grains, malty sweetness, and banana bread. Very potent.
Mouthfeel: fizzy, citric acid, and medium body.
Overall: Wow! Get it when available.

Beautiful beer: bright cloudy golden topped by foamy rocky white head. Aroma is sharp: lemons, booze, apple skins. Tastes of banana, vanilla, clove, lemon cookie, and slight booze. Spritzy, medium bodied brew but refreshing and smooth. Gorgeous and tasty, can I ask for anything else?

Reviewed from notes.
Pours out a hazy golden straw color with a stable single finger of head, flavor and aroma of light pears and bananas with a solid yeasty breadiness... gentle sweetness over a medium body and carbonation level, masks the ABV level very well.
Pretty much a textbook example of a Weizenbock!
