Pours a big foamy head on a cloudy straw body.
The aroma is muted lemon and earthy. Nice.
The taste starts with mild lemon bitter, watery, a little spice and finishes with a mild lemon bitterness.
The texture is crisp and fizzy.
It doesn't have a lot of flavor but not bad.

It's tough to rate this bier because I'm drinking it directly after having a bottle of Kuchlbauer Weisse and the Kuchlbauer Weisse is just better! Without the comparison, this is a solid weissbier that's actually edging towards a dunkel in taste and colour. With the comparison, it has a creaminness the Kuchlbauer doesn't have but much less taste. If I had the choice on a hot day, I'd be drinking the Kuchlbauer Weisse. Given that I'm drinking in Autumn, though, and this is a thicker brew, I'd be pretty content knocking a few more of these back and enjoy myself doing it. The best way to describe the beer is to say it's got the body of the Weihenstephaner but without the intense flavours! Well worth drinking, nonetheless!

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 15A). Bottle 50 cl - Batch L211107. AROMA: wheat malt profile dominates. low to no esters (bubblegum and banana). some yeast aroma. APPEARANCE: light amber color and hazy. slight ivory average head with good retention. FLAVOR: strong wheat profile with some bready yeast notes. none to very faint esters or phenols. PALATE: medium-light body and high carbonation. OVERALL: a weizen that lacks the traditional aromas of banana and vanilla.

50 cl bottle (bb 04-2015) into a weizen. Hazy deep golden color, three finger white foam head that settled down pretty quickly, very little lacing, constant bubbling. Wheat and banana on the nose. Sweet first taste is followed by a taste of tart wheat with some spice and a note of banana. Dry, wheaty and a little watery aftertaste that lasts for some time. Fresh taste. Medium mouthfeel, stingy carbonation, a little bit more carbonated than the weizens i've had. Overall a good, light, weizen with some taste in it. Would suit a hot day very well, even though i've had better.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

500ml bottle served in a Weizen glass.

A: Pour a nice orange hazy color forming a traditional big and creamy weissbier white head. Good retention and lots of lacings formed and left in the glass

S: Sweet and fruity. Strong notes of sweet malts and wheat. Traditional notes of banana esters and clove. Bready and a bit earthy. Very light notes of flowery hops

T: Slightly sweet start. Notes of sweet malts, wheat, banana and clove. Very bready taste. Maybe a bit too mild taste of malts

M: Very smooth and creamy nevertheless, light body. Medium carbonation. Bready aftertaste

O: Great drinkability. Easydrinking as a German Weissbier has to be. Practically no bitterness (as expected). Good
