Straight out of the fridge (probably too cold) after a workout. But it goes with a pleasant sunny spring day.
Pleasing fresh clove spice aroma. Banana more background. Spicy.
Somewhat cloudy and biggish head. Yellowish too.
Lighter than many and a little softer in both feel but also intensity of flavors. Nice drying and the spices lay on the tongue nicely. More grain character here than in the aroma. Still smooth and very easy to drink.
Very good and solid hefe.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours hazy yellow, big fluffy head, so a classic pour. Few floaties. Out of the ordinary is a huge (!) amount of carbonation.
Sweet banana and clove, some honey and freshly baked bread in the smell.
Really fruity, a nice mix of sweet-sour-acidic: apple, banana, oranges, pear, like a tutti-fruit soda pop, but in a good way. Pretty faint hints of floral honey and caramel, but they do enrich the whole taste. Wheaty bread, clove from the dense yeasts, going to some herbal notes in the lightly bittered finish.
The carbonation doesn't feel as aggresive as it looks, but it's still bigger than in other weizens. Crisp, not as chunky as others.
Nice weizen, easy to drink and tasty.

500ml bottle. Weizen glass. Pale straw color, cloudy appearance. White froth creates a close but lively & poor head. Yeast, banana & fresh bread aromas with slight phenolic notes. Bready & malty flavors at first sip. Medium body. Moderate but lively carbonation. Dense to watery mouthfeel. Low floral bitterness. biscuit & clove notes linger in a sweet malty/slight bitter finish. Estery aftertaste & bread memories. Refreshing & easy drinkable beer.
