A non-Marzen Oktoberfest. I was unaware hat this was a Hefe when I first poured it. Hazy yellow hue witha thick, white head. Smelled like a Hefe but it also had some traditional Oktoberfest aromas, too. The overall aroma was much too soft, however. Very mellow was the flavor as well. Not very spicy or phenolic, more plain and simple. Not much like a Marzen here, it didn't bind the style together as well as the nose did. It was light and easy. Peppy carbonation. I was not a fan of this beer. Shame on me for expecting something different. -Bottle offering-

Pours like a wheat beer. Turbid , unfiltered, yellow straw with sunshine highlights. Fat head of white foam that lasts and leaves lace. Nose is a faint bit of ripe banana that is perfectly ripe and not over ripe. Although faint it has a depth within the beer. There is the crisp scent of wheat with it's natural sweetness. There is scent like bread crusts but light colored bread and not the usual dark bread you might find in the traditional oktoberfest. Taste is refreshing. A bit of soft banana, ripe but not dominating the palate. A touch of crisp and dry wheat malt with that light touch of bread crust. There is the lightest touch of caramel I can say I have ever observed in a beer and it really brings this beer together. It comes forward a bit on the nose as the beer warms and is like a pretty little surprise to the palate. The flavors are all light enough and balanced enough so that you can taste them all. The body is creamy and smooth, crisp and well carbonated. Finishes dry and a bit perky with the faintest amount of bitterness and leaves that bread to linger with that light caramel. I liked it more and more as I drank.

Really unique. I would say that this beer brought key elements of both styles together gracefully and with a light touch.

This is the best beer I have ever drink. The taste after-flavour is awesome, it smells like a real beer. This is the real thing, the flavour is the best part.. at first swig I automatially realized, this is the best taste and mouhfeel I've ever had. Drink it when not eating. Had just a bad experience, I bought some on a promotion beacause of expiration date, and altought it was still on a valid date the taste was completely different, so make sure it is bottled recently before buying.

09/25/13 On tap at Rattle n HUm, NYC. Listed as a weizen. More body than I expected. Nice balance of dry and refreshing. Although Oktoberfest is a harbinger of colder days, this is a great transitional brew.
