4.05/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours a huge, bone-white head into my weizen glass, have to let the head collapse slightly before I can empty the bottle. Beer is fairly cloudy gold-yellow in color, with some visible carbonation, and a bit of lace, though nothing particularly compelling or artistic about the lace patterns or hanging on. In fact, there is little lacing after taking a sip.

Smells in part of faint bananas, ghostly whole wheat bread, bubblegum, typical hefeweiss yeast, a dash of nutmeg essence, and even a bit peppery. These nasal colors are here slightly more bold than in a traditional German hefeweiss.

Fruity esters and phenols are upfront, with some banana, clove, nutmeg, and bubblegum flavors. In the background are peppery/spicy notes (phenols?) and alcohol. The finish is slightly tart and alcoholic.

The beer is medium-heavy on the palate, supplemented by the moderate-light carbonation, which doesn't turn this into a froth on the mouth, but lets it adequately sit and move as desired. Fairly dry finish, quite sippable/drinkable.

I like this beer, but I don't think it's more exceptional than their regular weissbier, and really, just more alcoholic than complex, though of course the increased alcohol leads to a slight increase in complex character. I'll probably just go with the Ayinger brau-weiss over this, but who can say for sure, after all, I've made impulsive buying decisions before, and will do so again.

This beer was a surprisingly delightful experience. I poured the cloudy, lively-colored brew into a glass and was converted into a weizen-bock fanatic instantly. I've tried a fair few now but I think this is quite possibly my favorite. Aventinus is another great one but it doesn't have the same refreshing quality. Vitus is great also but not as cloudy and substantial. I should add that I had this beer after a long day working outside. My thirst and desire for a cold refreshing beverage may have something to do with my decision to award this brew a near perfect 5.

3.73/5  rDev -11%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

1 Pt bottle into a weizen glass.

Aroma is quite complex. Initial smell is sweet, with hints of banana and apple. Further smelling brings in scents of dark fruits.

Pours pale yellow, nice amber color in the glass, with a very robust foamy head that fades and lingers slightly. A LOT of sediment in the bottom of glass.

Fruity, tart, and also rather earthy on the palate. Carbonation is surprisingly strong, gives this beer a "bite" on the tongue. As it warms up a bit, a (fruity) sweetness begins to be tasted. Full bodied, but nice and smooth.

Overall, I really like this one.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

$ 5.99/500 mL bottle at Oppermanns Cork ‘N’ ale
Bottle with no date/production markings at 45 degrees into weizen glass
Aroma of sweet fruit, hint of apple
Head on initial pour large (> 10 cm), rapidly diminishing to 4 cm; subsequent pours make little contribution to head size. Finally diminishes to 2 mm layer. White and creamy.
Lacing none
Body medium yellow-gold with slight haze. Heavy sediment layer in bottle bottom.
Flavor begins and ends slightly sweet with some yeasty phenolics peeking out. No alcohol, no hops, no malt, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, creamy, soft carbonation with a few bubbles rising throughout the life of the glass.

An easy drinking non-aggressive beer. Pleasant and relaxing but, IMHO, overpriced.

Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a large, creamy white head, good retention with good lacing. Aroma is huge banana esters with caramel and vanilla nose, light bread and biscuit malt. Light noble hops and a warm alcohol character as it warms. Flavor is lightly sweet with bready and slightly buttery notes. A light hop bitterness. Banana esters and a dry finish. Medium bodied, medium-high carbonation.
