Hofbräu Kaltenausen "Edelweiss Weissbier Hefetrub"
,3l for €3,90 vom fass @ Zum Leupold

After a very drunken night in Dublin, Ireland way back in 1993 I had a bottle of this and thought it was one of the worst beers I'd ever tasted. Fast forward to December 30, 2014 and Bavarian hefeweizen is one of my favorite styles!

I was surprised to find that on tap this was actually quite clear, but perhaps this keg had sat for some time, although at the famous Zum Leupold I'd doubt that. And maybe I'm wrong, maybe this is a more clear hefeweizen. Regardless of appearance it's a fairly straight-forward Bavarian-style hefeweizen with lots of banana and clove both in the aroma and the flavor (also some apple and pear); and it's sweetish but still dry. If there's a flaw it's that it's a little bit light in the body, but being from Austria I kind of expect that having sampled some of their other interpretations of the style. Overall, quite nice.
