Sampling right now on 9/29/14. Comes in a single 500ml (NOT listed on the bottle) or 16.9 ounce bottle with a ceramic stopper for $2.99 at Hy-Vee in Council Bluffs, Iowa that I bought today. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a .5l 'Paulaner' weissber vase glass.

Pours a very dark brown if not a bitch black as you can't see through it. Has a good 3-finger foamy creamy thick beige head that settles down to a good 3+mm near the end of the drink. A good amount as well as sediment is seen in the bottom of the glass as well as in the bottom of the bottle. On the label it says "Hefe-weizen must be drunk from the glass-never from the bottle". No problem there. The aroma is of wheat with some hop aromas. The taste is even better than the aroma and has some sweet toffee and brown sugar in the mix as well. Very pleasant and goes down very easy. A tasty brew with medium body and perfect carbonation. A great brew!

Great beer. It was like a great Schwarzbier but with the added flavors and tickle of a great Weizen. Almost like Monchof Schwarzbier made love to some Vitus and had a healthy offspring. I had it in a glass as always, but it was funmny to read the text on the back which read something to the tune of: "Hefe-weissbier should always be enjoyed from a glass, never the bottle". Looked nice and dark with substantial aromatic head. Carbonation was nice and the drinking was refreshing. Good stuff.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pours with multiple fingers worth of rich creamy head which settled at about a finger and was present while drinking. Above average active carbonation in the glass while drinking. Some light gets in along the edges revealing a dark brown color.

Smell: Balanced wheat and some mossy, earthy hop aromas hit first. A big bready, doughy body follows up the initial nose. Lots of sweet toffee and brown sugar warm up as the beer does.

Taste: Lots of the sweet malt tones picked up in the aroma pop out first in this brew. Decent wheat body carries throughout. Medium bodied fruits ride this one out.

Mouthfeel: Light, smooth carbonation makes this a very easy drinker. Sweet malt tones leave a pleasant sugary texture on the palate.

Overall: Really easy drinking but nothing about this beer really grabs the drinker. Overall malt sweetness really makes itself known throughout.
