On the label: "Best before end 08-2015" so it looks like I'm well before that date.

Appearance: Massive carbonation, huge thick white head under a slightly hazy straw yellow body with a waterfall of bubbles.

Aroma: There is a slightly spicy aroma and a slight metallic scent and a huge CO2 bite on the nose from all the carbonation.

Taste: The flavor of tangy wheat rolls onto the tongue at first, followed by a spicy hop flavor.

Mouthfeel: It is a very easy drinking beer. The body is light and there is a slight bitter presence in the beer.

Overall: It felt pretty average, lacking a lot of yeast character in the aroma and flavor that come from drinking a fresh Hefeweizen. For an import it stands up pretty well and is still enjoyable to drink.

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 15A). Bottle 50 cl - Batch L071108. AROMA: faint fruity aroma reminiscent of clove, vanilla and banana mixed with wheat notes. no hop aromas. APPEARANCE: light Orange color and a bit hazy. thin white head with poor retention. TASTE: dilluted wheat flavour with some fruity and vanilla notes. PALATE: medium-low body with low carbonation. OVERALL: a slight more fruity weiss from Erdinger but nothing more.

Poured into a fluted pilsner glass.

Look: Very hazy dark wheat color. Thick foamy tan head, good retention. Light lacing.

Aroma: Sweet malts, grains, faint banana.

Taste: Malt sweetness, wheat, grains.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied.

Overall: I like this. It's not a banana bomb, very clean and subtle.

BBD: 08-2014

Opaque orange body, fluffy head of foam that rises above the rim of the glass in rocky peaks. Long lasting surface coverage that remains unbroken for the duration of the glass. Flecks of lace dot the glass in concentric circles.

Mellow bready wheat aroma, not much in the way of yeast esters.

Smooth feel, taste is also easygoing with mellow wheat and the slightest clove presence. Slight oxidation. Creamy and medium bodied with a light wheaty aftertaste. Not sweet at all. Pretty easy to drink but not much to set it apart really. For a winter warmer I usually go for Aventinus or the Eisbock version.
