Clear golden color with a thick thin head with short retention.
Different aroma for a Hefeweizen. Notes of apricot, oxidized English earthy hops, caramels, spices and bread. Not sure how fresh this is once US brewers are generally lousy in respecting the customer with freshness dates and it is hard to trust the importer (this has 4 months to expiration). Anyway this is sure not young.
Flavor of oxidized oranges, caramels, wheat, English hops, mild bubblegum and spicy yeast. Dry aftertaste with a perceived bitterness. It fells bitter than 18 IBUs.
Light to medium body with appropriate carbonation.
This is sure a different take on a Hefeweizen or just not fresh. More barley malt, caramels and more hops, less yeast, cloves and banana than traditional style. Something quite didn’t match here.

DATE REVIEWED: August 10, 2014... GLASSWARE: Weihenstephaner weizen... OCCASION: birthday weekend recovery...APPEARANCE: golden orange, almost Oktoberfest colored body that hazes beneath spongy three-finger, white head; low carbonation; lacing is wispy... AROMA: Yow! yeasty funk that sports bubblegum, prominently; secondary banana is detectable; a bit offensive... PALATE: more carbonated than its appearance suggests; pleasantly drinkable, light-bodied and cleansing; does its job well... TASTE: banana, cumin and hay--a direct profile that doesn’t intrude on its refreshing intent; not as BIG as a hefe, though--or as complex as its nose suggests...OVERALL: after some sun and yardwork, this beer is a recharger for sure--the glass empties swiftly and is a softer, more accessible version of its better versions...
