11.2oz brown bottle poured into Weizen Glass.
A: Cloudy, pale orange-yellow color. Dense, creamy, and glorious head starts out thick and lustrous, but eventually fades to about an inch, leaving marvelous white lacing down the glass.
S: Sweet yeast and malt upfront. Lemony citrus hits the back of the nostrils. A very light, airy scent overall.
T: Man, oh man... This one is lovely. Clove is very apparent as the beer touches your tongue. Leaves as quick as it arrived. Very yeasty with hints of lemon dancing around, almost as if the yeast and lemon are ballroom dancing in your mouth. Not a whole lot of bitterness from the hops is noticeable. Finishes clean and smooth. Slight twangs of alcohol remain after the beer has gone down.
F: Medium to full bodied. The carbonation is mild and well-controlled. Drinkability on this one is very high. I could knock a few back without effort.
O: I have to admit, I was as skeptical as you could be on this one... There's a local bar that serves German ales and this one is always the one being praised to no end. My skepticism has been put aside. This brew is every bit phenomenal as you hear. A must try, I must say!
