Poured into a Weiss Beer glass which developed a tan frothy head. Head was full and lasting with little lacing. Aroma was hoppy, almost grainy with a hint of sweetness and malt, Appearance was a light brown / straw color with a cloudy hue. Taste was clean and hoppy with hints of citrus and grain and slight caramel. Tasted more like a Weiss than a dark Weiss. Aftertaste was clean and dry with a light dry mouthfeel.

Pouring from a 16.9 oz bottle into a glass.

I decided to buy this beer based on the ratings from my fellow reviewers and I couldn't be more happy that I did. Right from the initial pour, this beer was absolutely perfect.

The pour was smooth and had a nice three finger head, the color was a nice amber brown/yellow. The aroma was an excellent banana-wheat smell with a perfect balance.

The taste fully lived up to my expectations based on previous reviews. A great wheat taste with a smooth fruit/banana/clove mix. In the mouth it was very smooth. It was so smooth it almost tasted like a "flat" soda on the palate, which shows how smooth it was (and yes, I am 100% confident this was a fresh beer).

Overall, I rate this right up there with the Hofbrau Dunkel Weisse as one of the best beers I have ever had.
