Enjoyed 21 May 2012, reviewed from notes. Bottle say 0315. I think this translates to bottled on the day ending in 0 (30) of 35th week of year, 2011, which would be 30 August 2011.
Pours a gorgeous cloudy pale golden wheaty yellow. Massive 3-finger white head, super fluffy and dense, with amazing sticky lacing. Unsurpassed in this department.
Smell is buoyantly yeasty, full of banana, with some spice and nice crisp noble hops. Smells delicious. Starts out full and fruity, then relaxes into a crisp, dry, wheaty-yeasty yumminess.
Taste initially strikes me as bland. Quite wheaty, but the yeast doesn't show up as much here. A decent amount of banana on the back end. But overall, it's dominated by those herbal noble hops. I want more spice!
Feels light-bodied, but full in the mouth. Good carbonation, finishes pretty dry with just a bit of water lingering in the mouth.
Smells and looks better than it tastes. Which is unfortunate, because it smells fantastic.

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.
