When I was in Germany my friends would say, "When you get old you will drink Hefeweizen." The only Hefeweizen I liked was Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier. Almost 30 years later, I am discovering Hefeweizen beers. How ironic it that?
Poured from a brown 330ml bottle with the date code of 5 June 2013 on the back into a pint glass and got two fingers of head that poured over the rim.
A: Pours a golden color that is hazy with a bubbly two inch head covers the top to the end with 1/8 in. foam. There is not much lacing.
S: Smell of banana and clove big time and spice and sweetness.
T: Taste of wheat and some smooth lemon zing that s balanced with a caramel favor and some mild hops and some fruitiness, too.
M: Very light and the champagne effervescence dances on my tongue. This is very drinkable.
O: Just an absolute pleasure to drink. This must be one of the best beers in the world. It certainly is the beer that I completely enjoy. I must recommend it again and again.
