Stiegl Weisse. 5.1%. "100% from Austria"
Served in small glass Stiegl mug at the brewery in Salzburg.
Murky caramel brown with a creamy and durable tan head. The head leaves some lacing.
A. Banana, clove, and bready malt, in that order.
T: About as expected from the nose, except spicier. Rather wheaty.
M: Light body is a bit watery; good carbonation.
O: not a style of beer I usually enjoy much, but this one certainly has an exceptional mouthfeel.

Had this on tap last weekend on the German pub crawl, and saw the sharp red-labeled bottle today in the shop.
Back label dated "13711" whatever that means. Guessing a euro best by/production date of July 13th, 2011? Old either way.
Into a weizen glass it pours an opaque orange copper color. Slightly more dark than a typical hefe. Lasting white foam, though there is no lacing.
Smells bready and tea-like, not much in the way of traditional banana & clove esters. Swirling the glass brings out some sweetness and unpleasant alcohol fusels. Slightly papery and oxidized already it seems, a shame as this is relatively new to the market.
Flavors are smooth and wheaty, though a but muted and dull. Some light breadiness, and hint of banana but not much. Overall a bit oxidized, papery, and watery. Not something i'll drink again. The tap sample was fairly tart, and that seemed a little odd though marginally acceptable.

It pours a cloudy amberish gold with a foamy white head that could be better.
The smell is bright and strong. Lots of clover but also a healthy dose of lemon and banana. It is a quintessential hefeweizen smell.
The taste isn't as great but still pretty good. Lots of wheat and clove with some ripe banana. The body is a bit weak.
Overall not bad.

Poured from 500mL bottle into a weizen glass.
Appearance: medium orange hue with a light haze and a very strong effervescence. Head is three fingers of pillowy tan foam. It's both darker and less hazy than I usually see in the style, but overall the whole package is pretty attractive.
Smell: sweet aroma with distinct wheat and barley malt character. There's a little bit of banana here, and the overall effect is very breakfasty. The sweetness is a little oppressive, though.
Taste: sweet malt with a very cereal-like quality and a tiny bit of clove character -- it's spicier than the aroma. The aftertaste has a very Wheat Chex kind of a flavor going on: not bad, but not something I'm going after. It's a balanced beer; it just doesn't suit my palate particularly.
Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a strong carbonation and big, satisfying creaminess. Bam!
Overall: this is not so bad a beer, but the flavor has this cereal-like quality that I don't love. It's not off-putting, per se, but I just don't see myself looking for this beer again.
