Fürst Wallerstein Hefe-Weizen
.5 L brown bottle with swing-top enclosure. "Best before 19.02.14" - almost 6 months old...
$3.99 @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ

Appearance: Typical. Clearer than it might be. Heavy sediment is left in the base of the bottle. Good head retention, dropping but always maintaining a solid surface covering. Average lacing.

Smell: Wheat. Minor banana and clove. Dull, probably due to age.

Taste: As the nose indicates, the flavor follows. It's nicely balanced with a bitterness that just pushes slightly past the malt sweetness. Gently spicy and floral hops accentuate. Pleasant maltiness and moderate yeastiness. Round and smooth. Some plastic-like and minor smoky phenolics give it a bit of an edge... it reminds me of slow-roasted pork in a way. Lots of vanilla in the lingering finish.

Mouthfeel: Light-medium headed towards medium in body. Gently crisp, effervescent carbonation.

Overall: A fresh sample would, without question, be worth trying. The spicy and gently phenolic combination followed by soft vanilla allows it to stand out from the pack.

3.8/5  rDev -3.6%

Poured out of the swing top bottle into a pint glass. Best before 2/19/2014

A: hazy (of course) straw golden pours with a nice head that fades pretty quickly and medium carbonation

S: banana bubblegum and orange

T: slightly grainy mostly bubblegum and banana. I wish it had a little more of the clove that the German hefes are so famous for but I can't complain too much - it has a nice flavor.

M: lingering sweetness and fruitiness light bodied

O: happy I had it. Not my favorite German hefe but I am yet to find an American example that could top this one.

Picked up a 500 ml. bottle of this a week or so ago over at Total Wine, having never tried this before. This was a good beer and a solid example of what a Hefeweizen should be but it was not the best I had. It was a bit too dark in appearance and taste and there was even just a bit too much alcohol in this. I still believe that there isn't a bad example of this style and this was just fine as is for a nice Summer night such as this one.

The pour to this was good, with a hazy apricot hue, fluffy head, and a bit of lacing that slowly slide down the sides of my glass. Not a strong aroma to this but there was wheat, apricot, and booze in the nose and more of the fruit in the taste. It almost felt like a Weizenbock, since the body was not as strong as the medium-bodied fruit and the carbonation wasn't that prevalent either, leading for the taste to linger long into the aftertaste.

This was just a bit stronger than I would have liked, as it was the first Hefeweizen where I could actually feel the alcohol as I worked my way through it. This had quite a full body and I could almost chew it and combined with the "pop" as I undid the top to it, combined for an interesting sensory experience for what tends to be a lighter style for me. This could have used more banana and clove but it's just bit different than the other examples of the style that I've had and a good representation of what a beer like this is capable of.
