Pours cloudy dark amber beer with enormous off-white head, retention is as long as life of an elf. Smell is excellent, round, to a good extent spicy, banana, wheat malts, a bit stale, like from cellar and even smoky.
Taste is classic for hefeweizens, round, balanced. One of the best weissbiers out there.

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)
