look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A 500ml bottle with a BB of May 2012.

Poured into a tulip pint glass. A pale golden hue; initially clear but much more translucent after the final addition of yeast from the bottle (swirled to agitate). Highly effervescent. Produces a huge head of creamy white foam with good retention; this eventually reduces to a decent surface layer. Aroma of sweet, yeasty malt with subtle notes of bananas, cloves and a general fruitiness.

Tastes of light, sweet malt with a dry, yeasty finish. Notes of wheat malt, bananas, cloves and yeast esters, with the faintest hint of noble hops is the background. Mouthfeel is smooth, full-bodied and slightly astringent. Leaves the palate dry, with an aftertaste of earthy yeast.

A decent and drinkable weissbier, though not the best representative of the style. The classic notes, such as banana and clove esters, are muted. I quite enjoy this beer, and it makes a good alternative to industrial lagers, but there are less commercial versions out there. A solid choice if the alternatives are rubbish.

3.45/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: pours a cloudy straw yellow/ amber into a Erdinger wiezen glass with about three fingers of great frothy white head that leaves awesome lacing.

S: oranges, wheat, coriander, musty, woody, lemons and a tad bready.

T: lemons and oranges, there is a great soft citrus flavor with those two fruits super noticeable. Wheat is huge in the backbone, sweet and super grassy. There is a pine note on the back.

MF: medium body, good effervescence, sweet and refreshing.

O: the flavors don't mingle too well, and a bit woody and musty for a hefe but a good beer.
