On tap at SYF in New Brunswick.
Ahh Wheat Beers...my personal favorite.
The original Hefeweissbier may be my #1 all time favorite brew, so this had a lot to live up to. I saw it at my favorite watering hole and it was even on tap...I instantly ordered a liter.
Pours a turbulent leather brown that his a bit of a river clay color to it with a cloudy, ever slightly off-white head.
On the nose I sense glimpses of predominately barley with hints of clove and citrus.
Tastes consist with the usual Hefe tastes of banana, clove, citrus accompanied by some darker, candied malts and more roasted barley.
Is extremely, extremely smooth and drinkable. One of my favorite Dunkels, and only second to Schneider Aventinus.
Serving type: on-tap

A: giant, dense, fluffy off-white/cream head; deep, hazy cider-brown; passes light; sudsy but fleeting lacing
S: malt and wheat, earth, clove, banana, apple
T: clove, malt, apple, increasing umami as the beer warms
M: light-medium-bodied, smooth, slightly dry
O: best chilled to mask the umami. Good if drunk quickly.
