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

Pours a golden orange with a two finger head that leaves behind a thick coating of lace. I really like the appearance of Hefe-Weizens

Smell; bits of orange peel, ripe bananas, cloves with a very solid caramel malt presence.

Taste; sweet honey like flavor upfront, followed by oranges bananas and cloves. There's a nice bread dough and caramel malt backbone, with just some hints of black pepper. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, and very drinkable.

Hazy seductive orange complexion, humongous creamy head. This beauty has a rich aroma with a strong presence of vanilla. Tastes of yeast, cloves, and tropical fruits. Mangos, Lychee maybe? Not as much banana as other Hefeweizens. Highly carbonated. Very refreshing and a fantastic brew.

Kapuziner Weissbier by Kulmbacher Brauerei AG pours a vailed orange from a 1pt 9fl oz dark brown glass bottle. Head went to well over three fingers before turning rocky as it settled down to a fine cap of foam with lace and streams of carbonation welling up from the bottom of the glass as if one had discovered perpetual motion.

Nose is of a citrusy clove and herbal banana. Palate is a firm tart citrus and clove with just a trace of pepper.

Kapuziner Weissbier is a delight to have in my glass and more than welcome in my gullet.

Eye candy with good taste, Kulmbacher Brauerei AG with it’s Kapuziner Weissbier, is a winner in my book

On tap in Erlangen, Germany

A: Pours a nice hazy golden color with a strong fluffy white head. Nice retention.

S: Spicy aroma with moderate banana notes.

T: Taste has a nice balance of the typical hefeweizen notes of wheat, banana, clove. I find the Kapuziner to be slightly more spicy than other examples but in a good way.

M: Medium body with high carbonation typical of this style.

O: A very good hefeweizen but a slightly different take on the style than the breweries in Munich put out.

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

Pours an effervescent bronze with 4 fingers of egg shell white head. Good head retention & average lacing

S: Fruitty, wheat malt & not much else

T: Tart & dry up front. An apricot fruittyness follows, & just a little yeasty edge. Grainyness & juicyfruit in the finish.

MF: Medium bodied, juicy with low carbonation, well balanced

Drinks very easy, more my kind of hefe ( yeast is subdued ), purists will want more yeast signature. I remember it being a little more yeasty in Germany
