4.08/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Presentation: 330ml bottle in a Weizen glass

Opened with a nice "psst", poured very thin, lively & well carbonated, a very audible crackle.

Nose is classic Hefe - ripe banana and clove - nicely crisp yet with an apple cider-esque sweetness. Mildly phenolic with a soft Band-Aids edge. Rounding it out are some very distant floral esters and an excuse of some minerality. The head did not disappoint, easily 3 finger's of softly snappin, tight n' light pearly white. Softly sculpted, it almost looks like meringue at the soft peak stage. With a nice retention it slowly settles to a pencil's worth with very little lacing.

Hazy but not cloudy, its a dull, corn silk gold in hue with it shifting from thin gold at the base to a light apricot under the head. A steady parade (think small town not Macy's Thanksgiving) of bubbles rise thru it.

Very clean, it plays a nice, lightening clove & faint white pepper crispness (amplified by the carbonation) over a very soft, round, full mouthful of semi-sweet malts that are accented by the soft, ripe banana sweetness. The result is a very nice ying & yang (what's German for ying & yang?) of both mouth-feel & taste - very nice. Add in some citric qualities (lemon zest) over all of it and its quite nice.

Very easy to drink as well as refreshing, its going down smooth and fast. It grows more semi-dry on the palate with a damp, rear of the mouth crunch, finally finishing flatter & more cohesively even with some ripe banana & white bread as an aftertaste that gently coats my mouth.

A very nice Hefe Weizen. I particularly enjoyed the play of it - sharp vs. round/soft, light vs full, crisp vs wet, etc. This would go fantastically with a fresh salad, any whitefish, shellfish done simply, lobster, mild chicken, and of course any simple German fare. Definitely recommended, especially if you enjoy the mouth-feel of a well crafted beer.

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

Cloudy golden yellow pour with a foamy two-finger white head. Really nice yeast and lemon aroma. Medium body that has a lot of spice and yeast flavors upfront. Lots of carbonation. Can also taste clove, light lemon, banana, and bread. Very traditional and a prime example of the style.
