epic value at under 4 bucks per bottle. the pour is really cloudy brownish pinkish color, kind of odd really, with a really robust pure white head of thick foam, long lasting, and leaves good lace. the color is funky, and I think this is far superior on tap, but the beer itself is amazing. it smells like good german hefe yeast and dark wheat malt, some solid toast on the grains, and a refreshing citrus element. the flavor is identical to the nose, rich and complex, quite fruity, but a little more roast than the weizenbock or the regular hef. I like the additional body it provides, there is a nice soft feel too, although the carbonation is still quite lively. its traditional, its cheap, and its damn good. how can you beat that? I think of the four ive had from this brewery, I like the regular hefe the best, but all have been extraordinary. again, the value cannot be beat!

One pint 0.9FL.OZ. bottle
Served in a weizen glass
A - This beer is a murky tea color with some burnt orange highlights. I got several inches of beige head.
S - I smell some banana immediately. I also get some caramel and some molasses.
T - The taste is kind of like a molasses cookie, but not as sweet. There is also some banana in the finish.
M - Medium with plenty of carbonation.
O - I had this on tap and absolutely loved it. I am not as impressed with the bottled version. It might be an old bottle. That being said I would not hesitate to have this beer on tap again.
