On to round 2 of "Tucher Day". On to the beer:

No surprises with the body, which is an attractive cloudy banana peel color. The frothy head does stay up well. Full of aroma, this hefeweizen is loaded with lemon, clove, bubblegum, and banana bread.

Bakery in a glass. Bring on the lemon, banana bread, slap of alcohol, and loves. There's some phenolic activity in there. More intense with the flavor than the brand's kristalweizen, though not quite as balanced. It's light-medium bodied with modest crispness.

Delecatable hefeweizen.

Served in a weisen glass.

Appearance: cloudy and hazy, light sediments on the body; not the most impressive thing you want to see in a hefeweizen granted might have gone bad. White head roughly 1/4".

Smell: light banana skin, but that's about it.

Taste: somewhat complex little banana feel, and feels little creamy with a dry after taste.

Mouth: like I said before it is a little dry, pairing this with the right cheese didt even impress me too much, I will say this the stickiness is pretty good.

Overall: this beer isn't on the level of others that I have had, I won't mention names but you should know what I am talking about. Salud.

Pours a nice deep yellow color with a good deal of cloudiness and a large white head. This to me is what a German wheat beer should look like.

Smell is a touch subtle, there is a sweet maltiness there, can also detect a bit of banana from the yeast.

Taste is a bit on the citrus side, more towards lemon. The usual banana and clove notes are there as well, nicely balanced.

Has a nice feel to it, the high carbonation adds a bit to the feel.

Overall a very nice wheat beer. Not quite as in your face as some wheat beers I have had, this is a more subtle brew. This is a really nice beer on a hot day, such as the day I am trying this. Wish I would have bought a second bottle of it.

Best looking Hefe I've had to-date. Emptied three bottles into two tall Weizen glasses, properly swirling in the yeast. Lovely hazy sunset glow with tendrils of yeast spidering just below the head. The head is white and fluffy and rocky and of great height (about three fingers). Marvelous. 5.0

Peppery yeast and ripe banana and clove. Touch of citrus and some day-old bread. Good stuff. 4.0

Very bready and grainy with a light spice component. Subdued fruits of banana and white grape. Light clove, that along with the banana, is more pronounced on the finish. Clean wheat malt flavors with a hint of Belgian tripel yeast and slight alcohol note. 4.0

Rich and creamy, soft and sudsy. Incredible mouthfeel, especially at the 45-50 degrees or so that I'm enjoying it. A beer to take out on the porch with you. 4.5

Very impressed by Tucher, and happy to have purchased a sixer for $12.99. Might have to come back for more, if I ever finish this hefeweizen project. 4.0

Pours a hazzy golden tone similar to pineapple juice. head is medium with medium retention. High carbonation. Smell is coriander, citrus and malt. Some sweetnes. It is a really enjoyable beer. I would not hesitate to have it regularly. Taste is refreshing and crisp.

Pours a murky orange with a 1 inch foamy bone colored head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots and streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of wheat, clove, yeast, and banana. Taste is of wheat, clove, and caramel covered bananas. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good hefeweizen but not something I would look for again.

Pours a very light cloudy golden colour with a bight, snowy white head.

The aromas are of banana, wheat and clovelike spice, not as aomatic as some other Weizens. But inviting al the same.

The taste is fresher than many other weizens i have tried again banana and mild sweet wheat.

Mouthfeel is much light than typical weisse beer with a nice almost delicate feel very silky and smooth.

The best Weizen i have tried yet one i could see me drinking more than one or two of.

I had this on tap at Jacob Wirth in Boston.

Had a nice clear golden color. A big fluffy head that had good retention.

Aroma has a lot of malts and wheat in it, some yeasty aroma and a spiciness.

Taste is much like the aroma. Lots of wheat and malt, some yeast and a nice spiciness which complemented the other flavors well.

Mouthfeel and drinkability was very good. Overall excellent, tasted very fresh.
