Maybe I'm not sophisticated enough, or I'm just too accustomed to American beers, but I did not like this beer much (Don't hit me!)

Definitely could tell it was an ancient recipe. I loved the look of it - had a nice dark to light gradient, and feel was solid - nice medium body, but the taste and smell was not pleasing to me. Had a weird barley, bacterial taste.

Exactly what I expect in a German style Hefeweizen.

This is one of the best Hefe-Weiss beers I've had. High quality and smooth drinking with the absolute perfect balance of spice and malt. This beer would be outstanding had it been a little cooler.
