4.5/5  rDev +29.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

My favorite hefe from Germany, because it's much cleaner tasting than most hefes by far ( screw you purists!). .5L brown bottle says best before 1 apr 06. Saw zero ill effects that this bottle was 40 days past its suggested shelf life

Pours a hazy & super bubbly straw color with a 2" deep white head, cleared nicely. Not much head retention or lacing, but great effervescence

Smell: fruity and slight yeast scent

Taste: Fruitty, slight lemon notes and grassyness up front. Finishes fruitty & quenching

MF: Great carbonation and slight syruppy feel to this. Balances just so to me (again not a huge fan of phenolic or band aid tastes)

Wow this goes down to easy, I close my eyes & see myself back in a biergaten somewhere in D'land.

Picked this up as part of a group to get to a 10% discount, I like Hefe style so figured this was worth trying at that price. Good looking beer that is only okay to the nose. Very good taste, good Hefe. Overall a decent Hefe but not what I would consider special, but certainly enjoyable.

(best by end 06-2014 - poured into an Innis & Gunn fluted goblet)

A: appropriately cloudy after initially pouring out alarmingly bright... light, nectarine skin, yellow-amber... pretty, silky sheen to the moderately-compact foam - seems like it wanted to hold, at first, but it soon falls flat then almost vanishes entirely

S: smells like wheat malt, maybe a smidge of clove ester... mild fog of citrus peel, no notable banana... almost a pilsner-like grain and mild hop note... not terribly bready or yeasty

T: more doughy flavors straight off the bat, bit of a staling roll crust finish... bit of that yeasty dough with a hint of it turning over tangy in the aftertaste... big wheat malt flavor in the aftertaste as well - I'll chew on some kernels from the half-sack I keep for homebrew in my kitchen, and the lingering taste in this beer is that glutenous, mildly chalky note I get when I'm chewing and chewing and the junk won't break down - it's like gum - speaking of which, there's a faint background hint of that as well

M: on the thinner side, but not exactly light-bodied... upper part of the flow has a delicate sudsy wash, bigger bubbles it seems... bit compact, gummy almost, with absence of a firm, spritzy carbonation

O: this may very well be on its last legs... was fridge-kept for months prior... overall, not bad - don't think i would go and buy and couple cases and let them sit around for months... likely a bit livelier in a fresher state, perhaps a brighter display of the esters
