WOW! I had this beer on-tap at a hotel bar in downtown Chicago. I had never had this before. They served it first with a lemon slice, which I immediately removed so I could full taste the beer. The next round from a different bartender offered an orange slice. I went ahead and enjoyed it with the orange slice. I thought the orange really complimented the flavor of the beer.
On with the review... The appearance was very good...very similar to most hefes and weissbiers I've enjoyed.
The smell was good, but it didn't seem quite as aromatic as others I've had.
The taste was very good. It was clean, refreshing, crisp, and light on the palate. It was what every weissbier I've truly enjoyed had been. The flavor was very nice.
The mouthfeel was very smooth. It was almost silky with a light amount of carbonation.
The drinkability on this was very high for me because I drank this all night long...without feeling full or tired of the beer. I put it as exceptional because it was a very enjoyable brew for me.
Cheers! and Bottoms UP!

Bottle code says L155A.406.25, a best by date. I'm guessing the L stands for year 2102 and 155 is the julian date, so this is quite old. Also, the cap says Hefetraub but the bottle label is what I see here. Confusing.
A- it pours a hazy straw yellow, big ole head of foam that leaves some nice lacing.
S- I smell wheat, cloves/other spices, not much else.
T- good notes of wheat, light on the cloves, hints of banana. The age of the bottle probably killed off the beer's vibrant flavours but....this is still a joy to drink.
M- medium bodied with plenty of carbonation.
O- drinking this makes me wonder what it's like fresh. As is, it is very tasty and quaffable.
