Loads of banana nut bread, grapefruit, wheat.
Mouth feel 4.25
Very balanced and finishes semi dry.
Taste 4.25
Great Weiss very enjoyable and balanced taste from sip to finish. Starts out thick with bananas. Yeasty with strong citrusy middle and nice banana bread finish.
Overall this is a fine example of the Weiss style and very drinkable.

Hazy golden color with a huge head with eternal retention and leaving laces.
Delicious aroma with lots of bananas, cloves, yeast, mild herbal hops, vanilla and bread.
Predominant flavor of oranges, cloves and lemon. Interesting that the bold banana smell did not showed up in the mouth. Hints of grassy hops, pears and sweet pineapples. Dry aftertaste with a light bitterness.
Light bordering medium body with appropriate carbonation
Nice Hefeweizen with relatively higher intense of spices and hops. Not sweet and with a good deal with barley malt as opposed to mostly wheat. If you dig the style, this one is a must.

Six months before sell-by-date.

This is another one of those beers where I thought it wasnt going to be great just from the label (dont judge a book by it's cover...)

Bottle is cold, maybe 6 or 7°C (less than 45°F).
Pours a big head that overflows, colour is cloudy dull orangish yellow. No lacing.

Smell is cloves - I dont think I've yet smelt so clearly and strongly just one thing from a beer. Maybe if it was warmer there'd be more going on - and I still have to tip in the end of the bottle.

It is very carbonated - too much - in spite of the agressive pour.
First taste is cloves. There's that medicinal thing going on - I like it, but it's a bit too metallic in the finish. As it warms I get lots of fruitiness filling out the picture. Still got that medicinal finish but the fruit soften the metal.

Adding the yeast rounds it out another little bit - but not as much as I'd hoped. Fills out the aroma nicely though.
This beer reminds me a lot of Schneider-Weisse Tap 7 wheat beer - both really good !
