look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Weizen glass.

Appearance: Pale cloudy yellow. Looks orange when held away from the light. A relatively aggressive pour plus the high carbonation produces a fast forming foamy head but subsides faster than I would like without much lacing.

Smell: Strong banana, tangy wheat and some clove. Stronger than typical aroma for the style.

Taste: Great balance of banana, wheat and clove, with all three flavors firing on all cylinders. There is also a hint of floral hops. The wheat is a little sweeter than expected from the tangy aroma.

Feel: Pretty high carbonation, with a very smooth, creamy, medium body. Mostly dry finish.

Drinkability: Outstanding Hefe, very authentic. This is the second Hefe I have had recently that is almost as good as Schell's but not quite.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass. Label says enjoy by 10/22/14.

Appearance: Pours a very hazy straw golden orange with a lot of fast rising bubbles. About one finger of white head that quickly fades away.

Smell: A yeasty and spicy wheat driven aroma with hints of fruit and spices. Big wheat presence with hints of straw, grains, cracker, and Hefeweizen yeast. Spicy hints of clove along with some coriander. Good hints of bubblegum. Fruit hints of bananas, apple, pear, and lemon. A very solid aroma.

Taste: Like the indicates, a good yeasty, spicy, and fruity wheat driven taste with notes of bananas and clove spicing. Big upfront taste of wheat with notes of cereal grains, straw, cracker, and Hefeweizen yeast. Good notes of clove spicing as well as some coriander. Taste of bubblegum throughout. Solid fruit presence with notes of bananas, pear, apple, and lemon zest. A pretty good taste.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a high level of carbonation. Creamy, juicy, and fairly prickly. Very smooth.

Overall: A very solid take on a German wheat beer. Good mix of spices and fruit esters.

Draft served in the awesome, appropriate glass at the brewery. Prost’s Weisbier is a gorgeous, glowing orange-golden in color with a thick, rich sheet white head that retains well and leaves heavy lace. This was a fantastic hefeweizen, and easily in my top tier of both domestic and international versions. A flavorful wheat body brings a balanced sweetness and bready character with a generous hand of banana and clove - rich, round, and delicious. Lots of yeast and a little secondary spice complexity. Grassy hops and flits of dried citrus. Creamy, full carbonation and a moderate body. All kinds of things going right with this beer.

The Prost Brewery is beginning to grow on me for various reasons. Their Dunkel and Pils are sublime, but the one that always seems to irritate me is the WeiBier. I have had the Weibier on numerous occasions over different months and it never tastes the same. I was told this was due to brew temps changing. I'm not sure I agree with that statement. Sometimes the clove taste is barely there while other times the banana aroma is not present at all. The last time through it was almost acrid in taste, with a steel after taste and harsh finish. Not what one would expect from a now established brewery.
I have a strong passion towards Weissen's in general and really want to see Prost get this one right. After all it is a GABF winner.
Consistency in brewing will make this beer a home run, and I hope Prost can get and keep it there.

Reviewed at Cosby Campground, Smoky Mountain National Park, TN. Full notes taken.

A- Golden bodied with a haziness from both yeast and wheat. The head is white with a consistency between foamy and frothy. Fair retention as the cap dies to a very thin ring and some small islands. Lacing is thin and spotty.

S- Heavy, crusty wheat cereal comes to mind right off the bat with strong notes of spicy hops, zesty fruits and some yeast spice as well.

T- Seems to be pretty much balanced yeast and grains, mostly the crusty wheat. Spicy, grassy noble hops do come into play but citrus zest, yeast spice, wheat bread, clove and light apple and banana esters are the prevailing force.

MF- Just lighter than medium bodied for the style with a creamy and silky feel. Carbonation is high with a crisp and soothing agitation to the palate.

Quite solid for an American made Weissbier. The yeast doesnt explode and totally dominate the beer with over the top spice and is actually quite balanced with the crusty wheat grain notes.
