A great beer. I recently met through referral from a friend. Here in Brazil leaves an average of $ 9. A little expensive but worth the investment. Highly refreshing, especially with the weather here in Brasilia (Brazil), around 30 º. Great color and amber foam that does not hold much to the cup and a very smooth taste.

Appearance
Big, tall head sits atop a cloudy and bright yellow body

Smell
Smells like a typical hefe of banana, lemon, and spices

Taste & Mouthfeel
Smell is deceptive as the flavors are strong on honey and malt with very little-to-no banana; has that awesome soft texture from the wheat; full body, lots of carbonation

Overall
Really enjoyed this one as it had an overriding honey-like quality with a lacking banana flavor that gave it a unique characteristic for a hefeweizen. It's a bit too sweet to make it a session beer, but certainly not too sweet to enjoy a whole bottle.

-pours a modest head that quickly recedes
-the smell and taste of this hefe are perfect
-modest hop aroma leaves room for the bready/yeasty/banana aroma to come through
-I get a little bit of spice in the aroma as well
-tastes just like a Bavarian Hefeweizen should: banana/clove in good balance, absolutely no undesirable esters, very clean finish that makes me want to never stop drinking this beer
-I'm sure there are some folks that won't like this beer because it comes from a macro, but I think it may be one of the best hefeweizens available

Bought in a five beer gift pack with an Erdinger weissbier vase.

Poured from the 16.9 oz. bottle into an Innis & Gunn flute.

a: Translucent deep gold, formed an enormous and stubborn white head.

s: Slight fruit note..

t: Belgian yeast fruit flavor. Blindfolded, I would think it was an exceptionally good Belgian wheat beer.

m: Light to medium with good body.

o: Very refreshing, excellent Belgian-like flavor with none of the sourness such can impart. Extremely sessionable! I would definitely buy this again.

This was a golden find! I prefer this to the hefe. While I owe al lot to Erdinger Weiss, this is much better. Have this Beer!
