This beer was a procurement from my uncle and father Hopfenpeter. Many Thanks!

From half liter bottle. Poured hazy gold with thick white head. A sexy weizen.

Musty smell that proves less sweet than a typical weizen. Banana light clove some deeper more savory notes as well. Interesting.

The flavors are mild in this weizen. All the expected flavors are there: banana, creamy yeast, cinnamon, clove. This beer has a real wheat flavor that is not over powered by the other notes.

I love the mouthfeel of this beer! Light and not overly carbonated.

This beer is easily sessional. I could sit and have a stack of these. Wonderful beer overall! Does the home town proud.

Being born in Forchheim , Germany probably makes me not the best example as a judge for this exceptional Hefeweizen. Yet believe me,I had many many encounters with this "Manna" (german slang word for nectar) of the gods.

After being pured into a weizenglas, you have to admire the golden color and the plume of fresh foam being held up from the live within the beer.

Than you smell the plume and your mouth will water.

You take the first mouth full and a wave of freshness will excite your tastebuds with amazing aromas. This of course asks for more and before you know you will be ready for your next beer.

By the way, this beer is stillin the making and won the goldmedal for the category Hefeweizen in Germany. A must taste beer!!!

Aroma of yeasty candied bananas. Poured a huge, pillowy, white head that pulled a ring of lace down as it faded. Murky golden beer becomes almost chestnut colored where the glass is widest. Refreshing wheat flavor in this beer with undertones of lemon and doughy banana. Finish is clean. Mouthfeel is fizzy soft. A nice Hefe Weizen.
