The best Wheat beer ever tasted in a bottle IMO.. this citrusy clovey cloudy Weizen is prefect in carbonation and body... very thirst quenching and balanced with a rich foamy head throughout and a smooth mouthfeel as well as being highly drinkable.. too bad I can't find it on tap and compare.. If you can find this Wheat beer it's worth it.

3.68/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Cloudy, golden color with a thin cap of of white head.

Aroma: Wheat malt, husky, banana and a bit of citrus zest. Checks all of the classic aroma boxes.

Taste: Nice mild malt profile that is almost creamy, then lots of spicy, prickly citrus notes. A little yeast towards the finish with some lingering spiciness.

The Rest: A solid, classic Hefe. Well balanced, pleasant and very drinkable.

Not a bad wheat beer. Unfiltered, cloudy color; the high head reduced to a consistent skim of foam. Taste was richer and less sharp than most wheat beers- definitely appreciate that the sharp citrus overkill was avoided in this one; much smoother and pleasant than I expected. Sweet after-taste (vaguely fruity, perhaps banana or something). Hints of spice- I mainly got nutmeg, although I think some clove scent may have come through as well.

Overall, not a bad beer for the genre, and definitely a good Weizenbier choice for the non-wheat-beer-drinkers.

Bottle at Pannenkoekenrestaurant Oude Mueller, Utrecht, Netherlands

A: The beer is rather hazy yellow in color and has a high amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that died down but consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of wheat and bananas are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of wheat along with notes of bananas from the yeast.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and as some refreshing properties. It is not a bad choice to enjoy sitting next to a canal on a warm day.
