4/5 rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: into a weizen glass, murky medium to dark amber - hazy from yeast - full off-white head that slimmed to a fily cap with some arms of lace
S: banana and vanilla over malts
T: spice and clove up front, pale fruits and wheatiness, some sweet vanilla on the finish
M: medium weight, moderate carbonation, lush and full feeling, soft and creamy
O: the worst fate in the beer world for a hefeweizen (in my humble opinion) is that it must inevitably be compared to the Weihenstephaner, and in the case here, it pales by comparison. A decent hefeweizen, typical in flavors, feel, and aromas, but just lacking a certain something. But don't take my word for it: buy and try - this beer may appeal to some more than others (like me), and its (I think) a must have for fans of the style, as it has been a staple in the style for over 100 years.

1 pint 9oz. into weizen glass.
A - Not necessarily a deep, dark amber, but the high degree of haze gives it such an appearance. Substantial carbonation, medium-density head, and what little lacing there is, are all short lived.
S - The usual suspects for style; fruit, clove, pepper, wheat. While fruit and wheat forward, it is still well balanced. Disappointed however that apple and pear dominate the fruity side as opposed to banana. No bubblegum.
T - Wheat gives way to fruit, which gives way to clove/spice, in an incredibly consistent way. Predominately green apple/pear, some dank banana and clove hidden in the background.
M - Generally smooth. Some viscosity up front while the medium carbonation does its thing. Finishes almost perfectly between wet and dry. Easy drinker.
O - A very decent brew despite that I was hoping for a banana & bubblegum extravaganza. In short, this bottle failed to deliver the modern style expectation. However, what it delivers is supposedly unaltered tradition, which is hard to argue with, and turns out to be just as satisfying.
