355ml bottle poured into a Franziskaner wheat glass
Pours with a light amber body, slightly hazy from the sediment. Thick two inch thick head with great retention. Little lines and strands of egg white head all over the place
Smell, slightly musty wheat aroma, some slight fresh fruity esters (melon and a touch of banana), some clove and fresh herbs. Some soap character too and an almost stagnant water aroma, this bottle doesn't seem that fresh. B/B May 07
Taste, crisp and malty, spicy slightly phenolic character, cloves, heather, cinnamon, fresh fruit on the finish to some extent. Crisp sharpness from the malt, dry chalky yeast on the finish
A little disappointing, not a particularly fresh bottle. The nose was a little off putting with a few aromas that just didn't fit. That said all the flavour is there, this is very true to the hefe style too.

Much more of a berliner-weisse than a hefe.
Delicious and thirst-quenching nonetheless. I could drink this out of a camelbak all day at the beach.
Nice citrusy sourness, but quite clearly toned down for the american masses from the original style.
Brilliant golden color with a slight haze, almost green around the edges.
this is a beer to buy a six pack of for a hot summer day. could be very fun with a dash of grenadine in another 'brooklyn/berlin' twist.

Review from notes
Hazy golden yellow with a scant head. Where's the giant fluffy head I expect from wheats? Anyway, smells like wheat, hint of floral/grassy hops, some tangerine peels, and pale malts.
Feels light and bubbly. Not big on this. So yeah, onto the next one.
