Cloudy with thickly packed fine yeast, and two finger head of close knitted white sorta define the look for this style, just about perfect.

The aroma is biscuit dough and light clove, banana, bubble gum, and some herbal things going on behind it all. As it warms the aroma gets even sweeter, and fruitiness appears,

What a taste! Man, it is more fruity in the mouth, tasting of pear with banana, with some nice spiciness to accompany that isn't sharp at all, and the doughy nature cleanly holding it together. It is sweet, but cleanly so, with alcohol totally hidden in the spice of this. Just a fantastically enjoyable balance of delicious flavor here.

Low carb, medium viscosity, excellent finish, super tasty and clean linger.

What a great beer. Highly recommended.

Poured from bottle into a weizen glass

Appearance – The beer pours a hazy deep amber color with a huge thick and creamy just off-white head. The head has an amazing level of retention, very slowly fading to leave a fantastic level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. This is a beautiful weiss in my eyes.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is huge of banana and wheat along with tons of spice of a coriander and clove smell. Other aromas of a white pepper and a decently strong aroma of a bubblegum as well as a bit of an orange and ginger smell are there as well. Overall the aroma is a big, robust, and enjoyable in this one.

Taste – The taste begins moderately sweet and malty, with the malty flavors being a nice mix of a bready and doughty taste while the sweet upfront is largely of an orange and caramel flavor. As the taste advances the sweet caramel transitions to a nice bubblegum and candied sugar flavor with the doughty flavors getting a bit more potent in nature. All while this occurs the yeasty flavors and bring with them flavors of banana, coriander and clove. The yeasty and coriander flavors remain relatively constant from this time on, but the banana and clove really kicks it up more toward the end. With the increase in banana, also comes some other flavors of candied sugar as well as little bit of pepper, which when combined with all the other flavors of the brew, end up leaving a rather nice and somewhat moderately sweet Weiss flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thinner side for a beer of 5.8 % of its style s with a carbonation level that is on the lower side for the style. A little thicker and chewier body and a bit more carbonation level may have been better for accentuating the fruity banana and spiced flavors as well as the more malty flavors of the brew, but even with that said, the combo did work to a degree and the feel was decent overall.

Overall – This is a very tasty weizen. The aroma, look, and taste are quite fantastic, with the only thing keeping this from the supreme top being the feel in my opinion. This is one you certainly can count on to being rather pleasant.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured into an IPA glass. Don't ask.

Look: Murky caramel body. Cream colored head with decent retention. Light lacing.

Aroma: Buttered bread, toffee, and some old world European skunkiness.

Taste: Wheat, toasted bread, butter, caramel.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, smooth.

Overall: Probably would get a perfect score if I had this fresh. Too many weird flavors from being an export.
