Enjoyed at Loreley's in NYC.
Had this side by side with a Franziskaner Hefe on tap in the same kind of glassware.
A - Poured into a 1L Hofbrau mug. Hazy orange medium orange in color with a large white fluffy head. OK retention but really good lacing.
S - Spice, clove, banana, wheat, the aroma was more pronounced than the Franziskaner I compared it with.
T - Wow, just fantastic. Wheaty and really complex. More complex than the nose lets on but with all the same sort of flavor profiles.
M - Exactly what youd expect. Palate coating and almost heavy on the tongue which was unexpected but enjoyable. The carbonation really cleanses your palate.
O - I must say I enjoyed this one just slightly better than the Franziskaner I had side by side with them. But it was such a small margin that it was almost non-existent. World class stuff here. From the claimed oldest brewery in the world you wouldnt expect anything less.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured into my new Schneider weizen glass.
A: Cloudy yellow golden rod with very active carbonation, two inch head with lacing all around.
S: Bananas on front, slight yeast scent on back-end, turns a little bready or nutty as it matures.
T: Slightest of orange on the very front end that quickly vanishes, mellow banana and wet walnuts throughout as the prominent characteristics. I wanted a stronger taste here, but still enjoyable.
M: Light, smooth, and refreshing with a medium carbonation that turns high and bitey on the back-end.
O: Beautiful appearance, great carbonation, and bananas throughout. Love it. Looking forward to enjoying weizens this coming spring and summer.
