3.75/5 rDev -2.8%
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)

3.9/5 rDev +1%
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.
