On-tap served in a Hofbrau weizen glass at Beerosophy, Bangkok.

Traditional pale cloudy yellow hue with thick frothy and silky white head with excellent retention, it just slowly fades to everlasting foamy layer covering atop and same time leaves plenty of refined lacing ring, patch and spot along the way down, splendid showcase.

In the way what it should be; banana, bubblegum, spice, clove, wheat and light citrus, well mellow.

Suggestion of bubblegum and fruity ester by a nuance of banana and zesty citrus, malt in the back drives all the things up. Clove comes in mind with a spicy, peppery touch while hop just lies underneath but well fit and suitable to the overall flavor structure by letting the others playing on the front row.

Medium in body with very velvety and super smooth mouthfeel from the delicate wave of lively crisp carbonation. Finish is dry and refreshing.

Very well balance and very well done, simple but delicious and easy to get along, all the elements both external (appearance) and internal (aroma, taste, feel) are harmoniously straight forth together. This beer deserves a big quaff.

A- Hazy pale golden. Heaad is a bit thin for a hefe, but the retention is quite good. Lacing is decent.
S- There is a fair bit of spice and banana. Bubblegum-like aromas also present.
T- There is a pretty big bubblegum punch here. Banana comes through quite strongly as well. A touch of spice in the finish.
M- Light body, medium to sharp carbonation.
O- A good weisse. Not my favorite as I like banana and spice flavors more than bubblegum, but still enjoyable.
