5/5 rDev +17.6%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5
Poured from a bottle into glass mug and served at approximately 50 degrees.
A: poured a beautiful brownish copper color with half inch head that lasted and left good lacing through the finish
S: a very dynamic aroma from opening the bottle to the last drop consisting of biscuits, bready and hop notes, and a touch of wood
T: fantastic, flavors that came through matched and were brought out more intensely by covering the entire palate, bready, some hops, and a smooth finish
M: medium/full mouthfeel coating the palate just enhanced the flavors even more
D: filling, could only drink one or two but what an experience those two would be
If there is a perfect beer, this is it! From first opening the bottle through the pour and right to the finish this beer is superb!

4.23/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Look: Pours with large, very thick, billowy, off-white (yellow hue) head. It has a beautiful, slow retention that leaves medium sized, creamy, thick layer on the top. It stays till the end and leaves fair amount of lacing. Colour is cloudy, creamy toffee, caramel, like milk chocolate sundae shake - delicious. Also lots of active carbonation, lots of bubbly chains.
Smell: Clove and banana classic. Bit peppery, fresh sweet peeled apples, red earth. Grain, wheat, hay with light darker malt sweetness, hints of caramel and milk chocolate most obvious.
Taste: Clove and banana with some spice lead the way; also yeasty character gets some ground. Dry apples, light sour. Medium sweet middle, mostly grain/wheat - light caramel sweetness doesn't come out until in the aftertaste. Good balance of clove, banana and pepper play in the after - wouldn't expect anything different from Weinhenstephan. Some light noble hops at the end too.
Mouthfeel: Light crisp start, this lively carbonation suits it well. Smooth and creamy medium light heavy body.
Overall: Not that different from the classical hefeweissbier, superb yet relatively simple play of the classical banana clove formation, that looks and feel good. Expected a bit more contribution from the darker malts tho.
