Poured a consistent and nice head. Golden color and the label says it is not hazy once this Weiss was filtered.
Aroma predominantly banana and a hint of cloves and condiments.
Low carbonation.
Refreshing taste, not very sweet. It has a zesty flavor, mildly bitter (you can feel its hops!) and with some species. Even though was filtered you can still taste the yeast. Harmonious ending, a little dry. Definitely a top notch weissbier extremely well balanced and still off the beaten path. Really liked this beer.

500ml bottle poured into a half-pint Paulaner glass, sitting on a Paulaner coaster. How 'bout that?

a: pours a clear golden, lots of carbonation bubbles rising. 3 finger head or so quickly fades to a half finger which sits on top.

s: malts and wheat dominant, some very light banana, not really much spice.

t: pretty light, nice malts, some light banana flavor, again not much on the spice end, pretty strong carbonation

o: average, not too exciting, but i know i prefer hefeweizens over kristalweizens.

Very disappointing receipe: I had expected far better from a brewery that makes one of the best hefe's in beerland.

Very boring and tasteless beer.
Smell clearly of bread and grassy hops.
Nice straw colour and nice carbonation as well. Fluffy head.
All in all, it's beer as clear as you'd like, reminding of a lager.
The banana and spice that is so great in wheatbeers from Germany is very much missed. In fact, this is just a very plain and ordinary beer.
As I said: if you want something like this, you might just as well pick a plain lager of some kind... the wheat character is there, but this drink should be much more exciting.
