3.6/5  rDev +2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Direct from Germany, brought over as a gift by a friend of a friend. Very hazy golden brown with a finger of fluffy white head. Good retention.

Clove seems to dominate in the aroma category, with a hint of lemon/lime type citrus mixed in.

Good amounts of semi-sweet citrus flavour up front, opening up into the clove and vanilla infused wheat taste that carries until the finish. Not outstanding, but nice.

More body than the average weizen, with the high carbonation you expect. Altogether a solid brew that is an easy drinker with more than enough character to be interesting. My thanks again for the fresh German beer delivery.

3.85/5  rDev +9.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

half liter bottle poured into a weizen glass. pours a hazy golden color with amber highlights and four fingers of off white pillow-like head that remains for a couple minutes.

aroma is mainly citrus with a note of vanilla. fruit notes include banana and apple. a slightly bready character is present as well.

taste is similar to the aroma, only with a more refined citrus and a smoother profile. finishes on a creamy note with lingering grain.

mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with a slight bite from co2 and a slightly watery finish.

drinkability is good. the citrus here is well proportioned and seemlessly intertwines with the malts. prost!

This Hefe pours with massive amounts of CO2 and creates great amounts of head retention. This takes a while to pour. The body is quite hazy and is golden orange in color.

Aromas detected are mostly dominated by bubble gum and vanilla.

This is a bit light in taste. Mostly banana in character.

This feels a litte spicy but still quite refreshing.
