500ml bottle 5,2% Abv.
Served chilled in an over sized wine glass.
Best Before: 19/10/2013

Appearance: Maisel’s Weisse pours a murky golden-orange colour, with a rough pour generating a large off white head. The head lasts acceptably well and leaves a few patches of lacing.

Smell: Mmmm, this actually smells quite nice. Big banana notes dominate the nose, with a little clove spicing, some sweet citrus, a little peach and some pale malt also present.

Taste: Sadly the flavor is quite a lot weaker than the nose and not quite as complex. Notes include: Banana, a little clove spicing, a touch of peach and some pale grain.

Mouthfeel: Weizens are one of the few styles in which I enjoy a high level of carbonation, so the high level here is just about right. Unfortunately the carbonation is nowhere near as it should be and is almost reminiscent of that in a pale lager! The body is light with a watery finish.

Overall: Maisel’s is a decent weizen, but not one I would buy again.

EDIT: I had this one again and the mouthfeel was a little better - enough to upgrade the score from a 2.75 to a 3.25.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Looks great with two fingers of head on a darker straw colored body, a few bubbles are visible.
The aroma is nice: grain and hay.
The taste is fairly malty with a moderate bitterness. A bit different for the style, but good.
The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation.
Enjoyable, but not a traditional hefeweizen.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: The beer is clear dark yellow in color with some hints of amber and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high off white head that died down but never completely faded away.
S: There are strong aromas of bananas in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste is filled with flavors of bananas and also has some notes of wheat and hints of clove.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The beer is a little fruitier (with lots of bananas) compared to other German hefeweizens but is still easy to drink.
