This is one of the first beer in a 5 pack that i bought today. The ultimate Bavarian gift pack, with 1 traditional weizen glass.
Poured the hefeweissbier into the glass. Just wow. This glass and the beer in the glass in so enticing. A huge fluffy white head about 4 fingers thick forms and stays for a while, dissipating very slowly. Head retention is good. Pale straw in color. Totally cloudy and unclear as expected. Good amount of bubbles can be seen rising from the bottom of the glass. Very small sized bubbles here. Decent lacing as well. Appearance is near perfect.
Smell is more phenolic clove like, with a good amount of banana fruity esters. Fairly good balance here, just a tad more prominent on the phenol side. Good characteristic smell of wheat beer. You know you are going to encounter some sweetness.
Taste is very much the smell. Mix of clove and banana flavors. Sweet in taste. A good wheat presence. Some tartness due to high carbonation. Not exactly very dry finish.
Mouth feel: light to medium bodied. Refreshing effervescence due to carbonation, which is too much, exactly as per the style. Good chewy feel.
Style wise. It is the epitome of style, no doubt about it. A well deserved 4.75. Personally a good 3.75 for a wheat beer.
Serving type: bottle
