I had this beer at Klosterbrauerei Raitenhaslach in Burghausen, Germany.

Appearance: Served in a tall weizen glass as is typical in Bavaria. It arrives with a cloudy, dark orange color. The white head is fluffy but tight showing good retention and wonderful lacing down the glass.

Smell: Dry wheaty malty aroma with light citrus and some sandy sweetness.

Taste: Sweet and juicy with orange and lemon flavors, banana and a light hop bitterness in the middle. Grassy with hay and a light candy-like sweetness. Some spiciness and sandiness add to the complexity.

Mouthfeel: Clean, soft, and sticky with lots of dancing carbonation. Medium bodied.

Drinkability: This is an excellent weissbier especially on a warm evening. Well done.

Serving type: on-tap

Served from draught into a .2L glass as part of a meter of bier at Lindenbrau potsdamer platz. Reviewed from notes; please excuse the brevity.

A: Two finger head of lovely cream and nice thickness. Hazy copper colour.

Sm: Malted-to-shite barley. Feck's sake.

T: Build of malt and barley with an off-bitter finish.

Mf: Fizzy. Incredibly light on the palate. Finish is carefully done.

Dr: Very good and fairly priced. Well done.

This is a great looking beer. About two and some change fingers of head. It has a hazy golden body with a lot of carbonation bubbles. The aroma is mainly of clove and nothing else. The yeast produces an excellent array of flavors clove followed by banana and citrus. The body was not as full feeling as I would have thought but still a really great beer.

3.93/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: A full three inch head that persisted with some lacing. Evenly clouded yellow-white. Fairly carbonated.

Smell: The weakest part of this beer. Smell was thin and weak with a slight clove aroma.

Taste: Nice clove and banana flavor typical of the style. Unique from Belgian beers as no added spice or citrus flavor. Good, bad or indifferent, I really like the taste of this beer.

Mouthfeel: Very full, yet not overbearing so it kept very refrewhing.

Drinkability: Way too easy to drink, congination of balanced yet somewhat complex flavor.

Serving type: on-tap

A- A great pour. Easily a three finger head on the beer. The head stayed around for a while. The color is different than what I have seen from a typical American Hefe. The color was a very silvery yellow. It seemed close to being a white beer, but still had the straw tint. The bubbles from the carbonation continued throughout the glass.

S- The smell was a little weak and kind of watery. Noticed a distinct spice in the aroma, but not sure of what kind.

T- After the appearance of the beer, my first taste was a little bit disappointing. The taste really went along with the smell. There was a weak taste to the beer which matched the taste/color of the beer.

M- The beer felt light in the mouth, very refreshing. No complaints.

D- A good beer on a hot day. A person could sit down and refresh themself with this beer.

I like the beer. I don't think that outside of the appearance it stands out in anyway, but overall a solid beer.

This was easily my session Bier while in Germany... Specifically, Hofbräuhaus Traunstein was the brand of favor at our gasthaus in Reibersdorf, Germany. The locals told me that Hofbräuhaus Traunstein was started after an extensive study of the water in the area of Traunstein, Germany. The water from the springs was such that it was perfect for the beer making process. Gigantic, frothy head atop this murky, orange-yellow brew. Plenty of great yeasties in suspension. Carbonation was mild, and wonderful at that. Aromatic notes strong with clove and banana essences balanced well with the hints of fresh grains. The yeast certainly imparts this brew with a fantastic backbone. Incredible.

Zum wohl!

Sampled from the bottle, in a little cafe overlooking the Hintersee, near Berchtesgaden. Has a yellowish-straw color...yeasty cloudiness present, with lots of visible carbonation. Head was HUGE! Rocky and white, it lasted all day with excellent lacing! Body is medium, and it's smoother than expected (with the visible carbonation). Very wheaty nose, though mild, with a pinch of clove. Taste, too, is very wheaty, with a tiny bit of banana, and quite a bit of lemony-citrus flavors. A touch of clove at the outset makes things interesting. Prosit!!
