500ml bottle, a lingering summer staple only recently made available here in Wild Rose country. The neck label (in German) proclaims "With lots of extra yeast!". How cute.
This beer pours a cloudy, bright medium golden colour, with three fingers of tight, creamy white head, which renders a low wash of painted lace around the glass as it duly recedes.
It smells of semi-sweet, meaty wheat malt, under-ripe banana esters, muted spicy clove, some fruity chewing gum notes, and very mild earthy hops. The taste is more edgy, grainy wheat, banana and citrus fruit salad, savoury and sweet clove and coriander spice, and a mild, musty, dryness - hop-related, I suppose.
The bubbles are quite sedate, the body a decently hefty medium weight, and pretty darned smooth. It finishes sweetly malty, mostly wheaty, and with a nice fading spice and fruit character.
A nicely full, rounded hefeweizen, nothing thin about this one. While not too complex, it isn't overly sweet either, so a few rounds would not be out of the question, even as the seasons conspire against us in that regard.
