look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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.

3.91/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a hazy, somewhat murky orange-yellow. The off-white head has a light tint of yellow-orange, and while initially tall, it eagerly fades to a more medium height. The texture is a bit fluffy/foamy, and a patchy lattice of lacing sticks to the glass.

S: Some tangy wheat aromas in the nose, along with some general malty breadiness. Soft yeasty spiciness, with rather light clove notes. Banana notes become increasingly prominent as the beer warms. A bit lemony/citric. Subdued but pleasant.

T: Bready malt and wheat notes up front. Yeast adds a nice batch of citric, banana, and powdery spice flavors. Faint vanilla and clove flavors. A pleasant, fruity aftertaste brings some light orchard notes (pear, golden apple).

M: Medium body, with fairly soft carbonation. Generally creamy and inviting.

O: This is a nice hefeweizen, though other offerings from Germany are superior. This manages a very nice balance, with no particular characteristic standing apart from the others. Nicely crafted and easy to drink.

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.

A classic booming soapy white head makes the grade, slides down the glass and provides some retention, but true to style. Body color hits at unfiltered mix of classic orange glowing yellow, with some light amber hues. Lots of rising carbonation. The body color has a good mix of in between great and uses the brown to it's advantage.

Nose is peanut butter. What is it with the yeast profile on these Furst brews? Peanuts and clean wheat chewy malt. Light clove sense pops in. The peanut sensation on this style feels real good compared to the pilsners, it comes off with that nice chewy wheat malt and compliments nicely. I actually like this angle.

On the palate, yup it's a hefe alright, but seems quite toned down. Most of the flavor profile is accented in the finish, hitting with a real nice lingering burnt clove sense that isn't drastic or hurtful. Body hits at some wet carbonation, but matches it seems with the toned down flavor. Borderline crisp.

Overall it's a muted Hefe, but I strangely miss that peanut taste which I think would make this unique for a hefe. I could have this again though, it's a good German hefe alternative.
