A murky, amber beer with a big frothy head.

Smell has grainy wheat and a sweet malty smell. Typical clove and banana whiffs.

Taste is like your average Weizen, a nice clove and ripe banana's yeast profile, supported by a wheat backbone. Although this is the Leicht version of the normal Maisel's, I can hardly get the difference. It's body is a little less, but hardly significant. I feel in doubt about awarding this beer, it is a low ABV% beer and with a lower body, but it takes skill to create such a beer. I wonder why not more Weizens have these alcohol%.

Poured a huge head that was dark cream, almost light brown, in color. Probably the darkest I've seen on a Hefe. Hazy, glowing, apricot colored beer. Estery aroma of bubble gum and dough with some fresh citrus and a touch of twang. Yeasty bubble gum Mouthfeel is soft, light, and a hair watery. As a Hefe Weizen it's a tad weak, but I've had "normal" Hefe Weizens that were similar. Let's put it this way. If someone asked me to recommend a Hefe Weizen it wouldn't be this one, but if they were looking for a light beer this would be a good choice.
