Huge thanks to glazeman for sharing this one with me and mini-glazeman. Paired with several different unknown, but delicious cheeses.
A - Hazy off yellow/tan in color with a nice frothy, soft, fluffy, pure white two finger head that settles to a quarter finger head and lingers around for the remainder for the drink. The top of the drink appears a bit more tan, and the bottom, more yellow. Awesome lacing.
S - The most aromatic and flavorful low-ABV brew that I have ever sniffed. Just outstanding and perfect for the style. Clove, banana, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. Mmmmm...good.
T - As someone who has traditionally really disliked hefeweizens, this is a delicious beer. Clove, vanilla, and all-spice up front, followed by a tasty biscuit-pilsner finish. Also, a distinct almond nut in the finish. A hint of lemon and orange throughout.
M - Very carbonated and appropriate for the style.
D - Here's where this one shines. I could easily finish a growler myself to the point of FUBAR. I would love to have this one again, but unfortunately, it might not ever happen. After drinking several beers of this style in Bavarian Austria, this is the best hefeweizen I have ever had.
Serving type: growler
