50cl bottle, best by 9/2010

A- the best head on a weissbeer I've ever seen. Huge retention, great lacing. cloudy orange/tan color.

S- Cloves, cloves, and more cloves, with a banana hint.

T- Mild taste in comparison to the smell. CLoves, but there's a strange mineral/metallic thing going on. Blech.

M- creamy, with a little carbonation. Nothing spectacular.

D- What I thought may be a promising Weissbeer turns out to be a big disappointment. Looks fabulous, smells great, but the odd mineral/metallic component on the taste really ruins it.

Served in a tapered weizen mug.

Huge pillowy head, lasting head retention that never breaks on the surface. Murky saturated orange color, fairly opaque once the yeast is swirled in.

Light banana and orange creamsicle aromas that carry into the flavor. Lightly wheaty on the back end, slightly dry in the finish and not too sweet. Clean and flavorful. Unfiltered and yeasty. Medium bodied and pretty quenching in the summer heat, drinkability is high. Better than the standard Erdinger Weizen from what I remember.

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass, and later a little roll.

A real nice orange and bronze amber glow, unfiltered and opaque body with a real nice creamy top. Manages a collar and cant see much carbonation rising.

Nose is real nice. Classic wheat and hefeweizen yeast esters, but a real great orange fruit sense. Nice chewy malt. Smells great!

Taste seems to be a bit of a letdown. Orange soda, and tight carbonation but none of the wheat density on the palate. Beer like malt presnce hardly detectible, and not even much banana sense either (no complaints) but it doesn't taste like a hefe.

Overall, not a bad beer, but pretty ordinary for the style, and it's too much like soda.

Big head on orange golden beer, steady carbonation.
Smell is decent enough. Banana, a lot of bread and biscuit. A bit of floral scent.
Taste is fine. It's malty, mainly sweet. Smooth and easy drinkable.
Overall it's a fine beer. It could do with a bit more powerfull taste, and some more carbonation as well, similar to the Erdinger regular Weisse, but this one also will do fine.

Another day, another hefe. Then another, germany rules.

Poured a orange-yellow, big white head, hazy and yeasty, nice aroma of wheat malt, fresh bread and clove. A flavor of exellent hefeweiss but nothing exeptional. Easy drinker, not overly carbonated, it´s nice fresh.

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and has a high amount of visible carbonation. It poured into a weizen glass with a two finger high white head that died down but consistently left a half finger high head covering the surface.
S: There are light to moderate aromas of bananas and wheat in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of wheat along with notes of bananas. The bananas become a bit stronger as the beer warms up.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate to high amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink, refreshing and has some thirst-quenching properties. Its good drinkability and lack of clove flavors could make this a good entry-level hefeweizen for novice craft beer drinkers.

Just mown my lawns and set up the bar-b-que for the main match (USA v England). I thought nice weissbier would allow me to settle down before the guests arrive.

50cl Brown bottle, best before the end of September 2010, poured into a Franziskaner Weissbier glass.

I couldn't get the whole bottle into the glass (even though I know how to pour a weissbier), such was the size of its head. The body was a cloudy/misty dull golden colour, with trails of bubbles rising to replenish the aforementioned white foaming head.

The aroma was of vanilla pods and wheat, I always try to find banana esters in a weissbier, this didn't release any I could detect.

Typical taste, refreshing and thirst quenching, ideal beer to have after some hard labour. Not the best beer I've had in this style, but certainly worth trying.

Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow color with a huge white bubbly head, fades at a decent rate but takes awhile because of the amount, oddly no lacing whatsoever though.

Smell has a bit of a weird yeasty funk to it, slight hint of grassiness and clove.

Taste is definitely heavy handed on the yeast front with a bit of an off flavor, reminds me of drinking an unfiltered wheat beer but that every sip is part of the dregs, clove adds some spiciness to the mix to help distract, carbonation is medium-high but closer to the medium range, finishes quite dry.

500ml bottle. Weizen glass. Bright brass color, foggy appearance. Close, sticky, lasting, white in color crown. Intense banana, fresh yeast & bread aromas. Crispy upfront, malty & biscuit flavors. Light to medium body. Moderate but lively carbonation. Unctuous mouthfeel. Bread, banana flavors, spiced hues & phenolic touch. Low bitterness & subtle spicy notes. Long sweet finish & fruity aftertaste. Delicious & refreshing!!
