With a clinical name that almost sounds like a laxative for pensioners this little Aldi find doesn't do too badly.
Light sweet bottle nose, and in the glass, in time this does bring a slight sulphury quality to the nostrils.
Light fading very hazy yellow there is some banana in there along with some rough earth and a slightly carbonic quality which ends with some fiery acidity which isn't all that pleasing.
I've had better, I've had worse.

12oz bottle poured, then swirled, and poured into a pint glass.
A: Hazy golden in color. About a fingers worth of head that dissipates to a nice ring.... no lacing.
S: Very Hef like... citrus, wheaty just a little clove and spice.
T: Again very Hef like sweet yet tangy. I'm getting some clove in the finish.
M: Light to Mid bodied... Crisp and refreshing, yet has a dry finish. Carbonation is right for the style.
D: ABV seems very light to me.... I could drink this all day. Very refreshing and very drinkable.
Very good Hef... Look for this one this summer. Great summer brew.

12-ounce bottle aggressively poured, swirled, and poured into a 22-ounce weizen glass yields a hazy orangeade body crowned with three huge fingers of fine, soft white foam that retains at a thick finger and leaves fat swatches of lacing on the glass.
The smell of the drink is tangy and wheaty with a touch of spice and citrus. Very wit-like.
The drink is tangy and sweetly wheaty with a subdued bit of banana and crisp peaches.
This hefe is light and crisp, but not close to the fluffy softness of the top-notch brews of its kin. Thin, juicy feel. Pervasive dryness in the aftertaste.

S: Smells nice. Oddly no banana though.
A: Looks exactly the same as every other wiessbier to me, if not slightly duller and darker. Creamy slightly off-white head.
T: Woah, immediately different from every other wiessbier I've tried. Banana virtually absent, replaced with a warm honey/caramel flavour and a woody, walnut finish. Very nice beer. Mouthfeel is pretty good. Smooth concentrated carbonation. Lacing better than many other wiessbiers. Even has a touch of whisky maltness to it too.
O: One to rival Weihenstephaner, or at least to act as an interesting alternative to it. Recommended.

Appearance - Light to mid carbonation, golden color and high clarity for a weisse beer. Lots of fine to medium lacing as the glass is consumed, white to light grey head; almost champagne-like bubbles.
Smell - Very light hints of banana in the nose, has a creamy scent to it.
Taste - Unlike the smell, no banana, but lots of warm, honey like flavors.
Mouth feel - Very pleasant to drink, but it leaves you with a distinct coating on the tongue (not unpleasant); almost like the honey is there in the beer. The up front is a bit watery.
Overall - This is a great find in the Lufthansa Lounge in Athens, Greece. Pair this with the other foods, and this is something I am looking forward to next connection.

Grabbed a few of these at the Durham Beerfest for the road. I'm a huge hefe fan, but this just missed a bit. Great pour, fluffy head, deep orange chunky body, smell was the clovey-banana that one would expect, but I was lost on the taste. I got a tang from the get go, a metalic tang that carried to the end. Good beer, loved the way it looked, but the tang got to me.
