Served fresh from the barrel at the Hofbrauhaus in Munich. Maybe the mystique of this place is a bit bigger than the beer, but this is still a solid Weiss beer. Classic yeasty, banana, clove tart lemon. Of course no lemon wedge is ever served with your Weiss beer here. One local described the Hofbrauhaus as the "Disneyland of Munchen" and referred the beer here as sh!t. Tasted pretty good to me.

When poured it showed a medium golden color with loads of foam and some lace. The smell was the weakest point of this Hefe-weizen. It showed very little in the way of fruit, wheat or yeast. The the flavor after the first sip showed a fair amount of citrus fruit, along with cloves and yeast. Also, a hint of banana. I find out that the warmer this hefe-weizen, the more intense the flavor. The finish was just about right, that the flavor just lingered long enough until the next sip!

Found a half-liter of this on sale for $1.69, so I gave this a trial run. On to the beer:

A clearer hefeweizen, it pours white. Light blonde in color, not quite as cloudy, big head, and still sexy! The smell is dominated by yeast, ripe fruit, and subtle spice. Phenols in the taste are light with a lemon zest. There is a touch of tart and malted wheat in the flavor. If you're looking for a cleaner hefeweizen, this would be a good one to look at.
