Picked this up at a great beer shop in Darmstadt, Germany, Maruhn Welt der Getränke. Beautiful crystal clear straw yellow pour with a three finger foamy pure white head with decent retention and lacing. The nose is typical Weizen, but much more subtle. Hints of grass, yeast, wheat, straw, cloves, and just a touch of banana and bubblegum. The taste follows suit with lots of grass along with hints of clove, banana bread, wheat, yeast, lemon, and subtle bubblegum. The mouthfeel is light bodied, crisp, subtly sweet, with a nice dry finish. Overall, a nice refreshing alternative to the normal Hefeweizen.

500ml bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£2.80):
Clear, golden yellow with a very large, foamy white head that I expected for the style. There is visible evidence of carbonation and the head holds quite well.

Wheat and clove with lighter banana & a sweetness. Bubblegum and vanilla following on from the initial aroma. There is also some spice and touches of fruit that is reminiscent of either pears or light apples.

Clove & banana are the focus of this one with the same hints of sweetness that feature in the smell. There is some wheat and a mix of citrus flavours with some bubblegum thrown in at the end for good measure.

Light medium in body with a little spice and a tang to it with lively carbonation. The beer is slightly dry towards the end with a crisp finish.

Not a bad beer, naturally lighter than a hefeweizen but also very similar in most aspects with the same combination of banana, clove and citrus notes although none come across as strong they would in a hefeweizen.

A: Clear filtered, looks like ginger ale with a moderate amount of fine bubbles, and one finger of white head that looks like a slice of white bread sitting on top. It fades moderately fast.

S: Bananas, cloves, a very 'Belgian pale ale' like yeasty scent reminiscent of blue cheese bite, without the stink. Very mild and gentle.

T: Extremely mild and dare I say watery. It is watery, which surprises me from this company. However, the Belgian type yeast I mentioned, as well as a lovely gentle banana come out and are clearly presented before each fades, then theres a watery, very American Adjunct lager like watery taste that kicks in and fades. Really hides the alcohol. A nice yeastiness that is doughy, like a Miller Lite, but this fades too.

M: Light watery body, medium high ginger ale like carbonation leaves it almost foamy in the mouth.

O: I like beers a lot and so like to try new ones, this isn’t one I would choose again, but really it is from a great company. The bottle is cool, I like their style. If you can’t stand the yeast floating in your beer, you could try this, but its not as good as Weihenstephaner’s Kristall.

500ml bottle

A- Clear golden body, perfectly transparent, sure this is filtered. Carbonation is quite evident. Big, white fluffy head, decent retention, not as much lacing as expected

S- Quite subdued. Sweet with a bready malt background, a hint of vanilla. Slight spicy touch (pepper)

T- Again quite on the sweet side, even for a weizen, but not cloyingly so. Soft bready malts, with a slight salty hint to bring a bit of complexity. Hints of vanilla (as the smell suggested) and peach. Also a slight spiciness

M- Drier than your usual hefeweizen as to expected. Also a bit more on the crispy side. Overall still very soft as per style though a bit more lively on the palate

O- Not super complex, but drinkabilty is even better than in common hefes. Overall an highly enjoyable, easy beer

For me, the Original leaves a sour after taste which puts me off drinking any more.
This however is definitely much better. As others have said, it's crisp and clean but still tastes great. The carbonation is bit much but overall this is still one of my favourite beers.
