500ml bottle served in a weizen glass.

A: Pours a very cloudy orange to beige color forming a huge, thin bubbled, soapy and creamy head. Good retention. Very persistent, leaving tons of lingering lacings left in the glass

S: Strong sweet and fruity upfront. Strong notes of banana and wheat. Quite bready too

T: Sweet grains upfront. Strong notes of wheat and pale grains. Banana esters. Quite fruity too. Light notes of hops. Very mild bitterness. Smooth and bready, as expected

M: Light, smooth and creamy body. Good carbonation. Fruity and bready aftertaste

O: Very easydrinking. Standard german Weissbier

Bottle poured into a wheat beer glass

Mazy, hazy amber with a tremendous fist full head and plenty of lacing

Aroma of Banana and bread

smooth first taste and finish. banana , bread . medium body

Grabbed a six pack while picking up some Chinese take out. Nice complement to the food, a nice tasting beer and worth a repeat.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #66 (July 2012):

LOOK: Hazed-over pale amber, excellent head & lacing

SMELL: Banana bread, dusty clove, bread, green peppercorn, light bubblegum, ripe fruit, yeast

TASTE: Incredibly smooth, big breadiness, medium body, green plantain chips, peppery, allspice, modest hopping, grainy, nutty yeast; grainy, semi-dry finish

More US brewers are emulating this beer style with great success, and it seems to be the trend style of the year as well. With that said, this brand might have a tougher road ahead if it’s trying to make its way into the US beer market. Overall, a good sip and worthy of your time.

Tasted on tap in Frankfurt airport in a traditional wheat beer glass.

A - Color is medium gold. Cloudy, but still lets light through. Thick, white head. Massive lacing.

S - Clean wheat and pilsner grain aroma. The malt is well balanced against grassy hops and clove.

T - Clean malt and wheat flavor. Clove is muted. No banana noted. Solid hops bitterness and grassy flavor.

M - Medium to full body. Smooth and creamy feel. Prickly carbonation. Light alcohol presence.

O - This is a very cleanly made and balanced Weizen. Surprising creaminess and low yeast esthers make this stand out from the crowd for me.

a very enjoyable and refreshing drink - not complex but not meant to be

Arrives a straw-grapefruit blend in color. Completely cloudy yet translucent, it almost looks lit from behind. Good lace for a hefeweizen.
Smell is somewhat restrained but notes of malt, cloves, bananas, and yeast. Well balanced.
Taste is more forward than the nose with the same malty backbone carrying bananas, clove, nutmeg, yeast and vanilla notes. Very good balance. Good complexity.
Medium bodied with a pronounced and tangy effervescence. Drying from the middle on. A mere whiff of warming late. Well done.
