Nice color and clarity. Not a bad odor either,was expecting a clean taste with a good balance of malt,barley,and hops all surrounded with a certain sweetness ,but some harsh twangy wheat taste overwhelmed everything good. I would pass on another. Hope there is another kind much better to try in the future

3.8/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Pours a slightly hazy golden body with a small white head with decent retention. Aromas are huge on honey, tons of bee's wax, raw bananas, and heaps of wheatiness with whispers of grassy fields. Very sweet on the front palate, with lots of clover honey and a dash of bubblegum, before a sweet wheatiness dominates the middle and the finish. This is cleaner and more straightforward than many German hefeweizens, but the actual flavors are undeniably delicious from beginning to end. It could use more carbonation to carry its more delicate flavors aloft, but for those with a sweet wheat fetish, Ludwig Weiss can touch upon all of your kinks.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

My brother had a sixer of this waiting for me down in Florida.

Pours a super effervescent and slightly hazed gold with 3+ fingers of pearl white head. Average head retention & lacing

S: Green bananas & breadyness

T: Follows the nose, cloves, plus pears. More green banana, cloves & pears as this warms. Finishes medicinal, bready, & with more green banana

MF: Medium bodied, fluffed up carbonation

Not the best of the style, but pretty good

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a bottle into my Pilsner Urquell glass

A: Cloudy, slightly murky dark straw, yet pale in overall look. Nice pillowy off-white head.

S: Immediate banana, then doughy yeast. Sweet bread notes.

T: Minerally banana. Midtaste sweet notes of bread and yeast (slightest hint of bubble gum but it subsides fast). Lots of wheat on the back end, kind of finishes dry too. Slightest floral after taste, some spice from clove and hops.

M: Medium bodied and on the more viscous side for this style, at least in my experience. Drinkable and refreshing.

O: Delightful to have on a hot summer day in Georgia while watching the World Cup Final. I'm trying to learn more about German beer and this was a great way to explore.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Very balance brew from Southern Germany. Great yellow color, with above the average thickness and density. A contender for a summer food companion. Mouthfeel just as good as the color, maintaining a hoppy taste from beginning towards the end. Very drinkable and refreshing.
