look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Poured into a Houblon Chouffe glass (looks like stemmed weizen - pilsner type glass)

Look - Perfect for a beer of this type. Light, hazy straw yellow with a persistent 0.5cm head that nicely coats and laces this particular glass.

S - Strong Bavarian yeast smell. Banana, baking bread, and a bit of cloves. Everything is clearly distinct, yet subtle and not overpowering. Like listening to music on expensive headphones.

T - This is how I want wheat beer to taste. The promises of the nose are all there, but it's followed by the ever subtle burn of an ~8% light beer. It's difficult to describe how distinct each flavor is without drowning out everything else.

F - It couldn't be better. Carbonation initially tickles the mouth, but then subsides and allows the beer to smoothly coat it making you long for more. You think it feels light and not much more than carbonation, but when you really stop to pay attention, you realize it's almost slightly oily and pretty full-bodied.

O - This beer is perfectly balanced and impressively delicate (especially considering the relatively high ABV). I am not usually one for wheat beers, but to me this is a beautiful example of everything I like about them while leaving out everything I don't. If I were to pick a beer for a spring picnic, this is my hands-down winner. For me, the Bavarian bar has been set.
