Pours a light gold with a nice head. Smell is interesting. It's light to the nose with wheat and fruit. I'm a big fan of hefeweizens and this one was one of the best I've ever had. The taste is so unique for a wheat beer. Great balance. Very creamy and sweet with hints of vanilla. The booziness is perfectly masked. I love it. I would absolutely recommend this to a friend.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a murky yellow color, looks like a good hefeweizen. Little head.

S: Has the classic smell of beer, kind of like a lager. Alcohol and hops. However, it is a little more pleasant than other comparable brews I've had.

T: Pretty darn good. Initially tastes a bit like a sour with a hint of lemon taste that gives way to the taste of some sort of grain, I'm gonna say barley.

M: Very smooth, with medium carbonation.

O: I have not had to many hefeweizen style beers, but this one is definitely better than many that I've tried. The taste is sweet/sour at the beginning and it is very drinkable. Good beer.

Bottle shared by areich6, this is the first beer on our night of the King!

A- Pours very light from the bottle but gets its act together in the glass, hazy orange like you'd expect from a hefe

S- Classic Hefe scent, bananas and cloves on top of the light hops

T- Very sweet banana/orange taste. This is a very very juicy beer which I find delectable

M- Prickly carbonation that caused my greenhorned friend to relate this to a sour at first. This would be amazing on my back porch on a warm summer's eve

O- I thoroughly enjoyed this! IDK how readily available this is in the states but I'd certainly try it again

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

500 ml bottle poured in a Pilsner glass.

A- Two finger thick white head with large soapy bubbles. Well carbonated, light orange coloration. Sticky lacing.

S- Wheat and bread tones matched with citrus, cloves and banana.

T- Ah wonderful, a real hefeweizen. Banana flavor on top of the bread taste that comes with the wheat. Refreshing and tasty.

M- Full bodied, well carbonated with a superb finish.

O- This is how I like my beers to be. One of my favorite types and executed nearly to perfection.
