I hate to rate this beer so low, but it does not adhere to the Weissbier style. So this is why I rated it low
A: beautiful full head, my beer was served in an actual Erdinger weizen glass and the shape allowed the heavy carbonation to create a huge, full white head; hazy golden color.
S: not much of a nose, some faint citrus, very neutral smell
T: very refreshing clean beer, but did not have the banana or fruity flavor one would expect from a weiss bier.
Overall: I drank several of these beers throughout the weekend as it is a good drinking beer, just not a good representation of a good German wheat beer. Rather neutral flavor and characteristics. There are much better examples of German wheat beer, I would classify this one as a good beer produced in Germany that probably can gain widespread acceptance with BMC drinkers here in America.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a Guinness glass from a 16.9oz bottle. Best by 09/2014
A- Pours a hazy golden straw yellow with a high fluffy white head.
S- Got a very light typical Hefe aroma with slight spices and banana.
T- Got some bitter yeast character, slight spice and banana. Finishes pretty light and a bit watery.
M- Light and a bit watery even for a Hefe.
O- This is a pretty weak example of the style. Not much flavor and a bit too light in the mouthfeel. If you are choosing pick up a Hacker Pshorr or Weihenstephaner.

3.88/5 rDev +11.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Straw yellow color with some accents of orange. Slightly cloudy body. A finger of head on the pour which settled in at about half a finger. Average active carbonation for a hefe.
Smell: Prairie grass, straw, and lemon jump out right away. Fruit tones of mangos and tangerines compliment the peppercorn aromas. Subtle wheat and oat body warms up the nose. Slight tingle of some alcohol and bubbly carbonation. Very bright overall.
Taste: Subtle lemon lime accents pop up first but quickly yield to an easy going wheat body. Light bready tones toward the back end of the body. Tones of straw and lemon round out the flavor and linger on the palate after drinking.
Mouthfeel: Sharp carbonation. Lemon bitterness throughout. Balanced wheat tones.
Overall: A solid hefe but it was not as active on the flavors as I expected after the aroma. The lemon lime tones are potent and interesting. Would certainly go back to this again.
