I poured a bottle into a weizen glass.

Appearance- Clear, pale golden color with two fingers worth of white foamy head. Fair amount of patchy lacing.

Smell- Clove and banana aroma with some wheat malt .

Taste- Wheat malt flavor with notes of banana and clove.

Mouthfeel- Light bodied, crisp, and generously carbonated.

Overall- Nice and refreshing. I prefer the unfiltered version but this is still a good beer.

Great beer!!

500 ml bottle poured into Erdinger Weizen

Three finger head with a pale gold body, moderate carbonation

Smells grassy and herbal

Tastes of clove, bubblegum, and malt, this beer is not complex. But, good beer does not have to be complex to be good!

Mouthfeel: Smooth and warming!

Overall, this is a good beer. Not the best Weihenstephaner, but I have enjoyed this brewery's portfolio.
