Moosbacher Weissbier
.5l flip-top cap brown bottle, no apparent freshness dating.
$3.79 @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ

Apparently a bad bottle, it opened with no crack, nor even a hiss. As I poured it no head built, regardless of how high I held the bottle or how I shook it up. What a disappointment. The paper strip over the metal enclosure was sealed, so it hadn't been tampered with. It poured crystal-clear, revealing a seriously sedimented yeast cake at the bottom of the bottle. I blame Total Wine & More for this, not the brewery.

Appearance: crystal-clear golden body until the yeast sediment was disturbed - I feel this is probably just a very old bottle. No head, but again, I can't fault the brewery without a better idea of what's happened.

Smell: Yeasty after the pour. Hay-like, spice, and yeast prior. Again, probably just well beyond its "best by" date. Some spicy and floral hops have survived however.

Taste: Grainy malt. Wheat. Some phenol; light touch of vanilla and banana.

Mouthfeel: Obviously I can't review the mouthfeel based on my sample. There is some carbonation but it's only about 2.1 volumes of C02 where it needs to be closer to 3.0.

Overall: Hard to tell. Based on what I have I find it balanced. I'd imagine that the spiciness of a fresh bottle would be refreshing. I'm going to seek a new bottle to do an update.

Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a cloudy golden amber with a fine, two finger white head with great retention and thick lacing. Classic hefeweizen aroma of wheat, clove, light lemon citrus and hint of banana. Flavor follows, with slightly sweet wheat, clove, light lemon and bit of banana, finishing with a little drier wheat and residual spicing. Light bodied with nice active carbonation. A nicely made, classic hefeweizen, a bit blander than some of the other classics in this style, but well balanced and pleasant to drink. I would defiinitely buy this again. I liked it a lot better than the schwarze version from this brewery.

Not a very interesting hefeweizen here. Smell and taste of wheat and yeast without the lemon, orange, coriander, spice that I enjoy in most hefeweizen. Flavors overall are faint, and the beer is overall quite forgettable although certainly not bad. Mouthfeel is somewhat creamy for the style with fairly low carbonation. While I respect the beer for what it is (it comes from Bavaria and uses only water, barley, wheat, hops, and yeast) I wasn't able to pick up on the complexity that I was hoping to find. Maybe I'm missing something, but it just didn't do that much for me.

Two previous Moosbachers (Pilsener & Schwarze Weisse) were rather disappointing. This beer pours murky amber with very stable off-white head. Smell is a bit weak, but clear, citruses, banana, yeasts. Taste is spicy owing to clove, citrusy with yeasty aftertaste, medium body, good carbonation, normal hefeweizen.
