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.
