0,5 l bottle into a weizen pokal. Hazy amber body, big fluffy white head with some lacing. Yeasty and wheaty smell with notes of banana, clove and bubblegum. Sweet first taste of malt and wheat followed by yeasty banana and bubblegum, dry finish with clove and peppery spiciness, yeasty aftertaste. Medium body, high but soft carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, very drinkable. Overall a good hefeweizen but not the best within the style. Nice flavor, a bit sweeter than usual, went down well with bratwurst and sauerkraut.

11.2 oz bottle. Deep amber body with a durable, creamy head and excellent lacing. Flavorful, with moderate levels of banana and yeast/spice over a good wheat base.

Appearance- Cloudy and orange. White head that quickly dissipates.

Smell-Banana and clove.

Taste- More clove than banana. Kind of floral.

Mouthfeel- Medium body and carbonation.

Overall- Decent and cheap hefeweizen. Easy to find in Korea. I will turn to this frequently when I can't afford Weihenstaphen (the only other good hefe in Daegu)

Served well chilled into a franziskaner hefe glass while touring in Lubeck, Germany.

Appearance - Vibrant orange color, with nearly three fingers of fluffy white head that settles into a coalescing half finger head after a while. Lots of spotty lacing interspersed with some spidery lacing on the glass.

Smell - fairly aromatic banana bread, and some very subtle hints of citrus. The usual wheat, banana, and clove dominate though. Traditional hefe fare, and well executed.

Taste - light orange peel and coriander with a tremendous banana burst up front then a dropping of into the flavours of wheat and banana with some clove mixed in. Some pepper in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - smooth, reasonably well carbonated, with a bit of a spritzy feel. Not quite as light as some of the true greats, but definitely not heavy either.

Overall - a vey fine hefe that's in the same class as some of its great German brethren.
