Poured into a chalice. $3.79 for 16.9 oz. Best before Aug 2014.

A heavier hefe. Can you have too much clove in the aroma? 3.75

A – Pours a cloudy pale orange with a three-finger off-white dense head. Good carbonation. Decent lacing. 3.75

S – Wheaty, citrusy, banana and big cloves. 4.25

T – Wheat bread, slightly peppery, some citrus, ever so slightly tart, more malty than most hefes. 3.75

MF – A little sharp, medium-dry, medium bodied. 3.5

A- Great looking straw colored beer with long lasting off white head.
S- Smells distinctly of brewing spices; coriander?
T- Sweet, even for a Weizen; strong, but pleasant, slightly citrusy.
M- A bit harsh and acidic, relatively high carbonation on the tongue.
O- Decent, sessionable beer with a very pleasant taste that breaks the traditional weizen mold.

On-tap at a local Oktoberfest celebration. Served in an Erdinger plastic pint glass.

A- foamy, tan head starts at 1-1/2 fingers, has awesome retention, and leaves great stick. Hazy orange body.

S- lemon, bananas, clove. Mostly lemon.

T- tons of banana, some lemon, lighter cloves. Robust.

M- creamy. Light carbonation.

O- very flavorful, so much so I was wondering if it was an amped-up/imperial version at points. Tons of banana. I would have drank this all afternoon given the chance. Great for the Fest in unusually warm, fall weather. Refreshing.

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.
