4.75/5  rDev +7.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

500ml bottle into Augustiner weizen glass, no BB

Pours with a huge fluffy white head, allow some head space, swirl the final bit and dump in the yeast. Slightly clear straw yellow gets hit with the yeast and clouds up nicely, final color is a hazy yellow/orange. Head goes down to a skim a bit too quickly to be perfect. Smell is pure weizen yeast: banana, cloves and some dry wheat. Man is this beer aromatic. Taste has tons of yeast complexity and some clove spiciness, hint of sweet from the malt. Mouthfeel has some dryness due to the wheat, light bodied and very high carb, carb even teases the mouth.

Hands down the best hefeweizen, the Germans invented the style and they sure do know how to make em. The only American hefe that comes close is SN's Kellerweiss. Light bodied and full of flavor with none of the off tastes that inferior beers of the style so often have. I feel pity for the person who lets blue moon be the beginning and end of their foray into wheat beers. If the head had held up better and the smells had hit harder this would be a perfect beer. I long for the day I can try this one fresh at the brewery.
