A very nice surprise from this brewer...

I really enjoyed how this looked in the glass - an dark champagne colored brew with a head that pours out nice and thick and easy. The smell consisted of sweet barley with a mouthfeel that was oh so light on the tongue. The rest of it reminded me of most other Tucher brews I have had, not necessarily making itself distinct in any other way. A decent beer, one I would not hesitate to reach for again, but nothing overly 'special' either.

Brauerei Tucher Brau "Tucher Kristall Weizen"
16.9 fl. oz. brown glass bottle, coded "L002 13:24"
$2.59 @ ABC Fine Wine & Spirits #139, Wildwood, FL

Look: Clear golden body beneath a full head of bright white foam. Somewhat limited head retention and lacing for the style.

Smell: Grainy, bready, sweetish, wheaty malt, with some banana and just a touch of clove.

Taste: The flavor follows the aroma with the yeasty phenolics somewhat restrained. A subtle spiciness helps to round it out.Nicely balanced with a stiff bitterness and mostly dry finish as the malt steadily erodes from the palate.

Feel: Medium-light in body and crisply effervescent.

Overall: A solidly made kristalweizen that's perfect for everyday consumption.

Poured from a 500ML bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear golden color with a large white head. The aroma is sweet malt and hops. An excellent hefeweizen.

Bottle poured into a glass

A: Pours a light clear golden orange with a bright white creamy full head, lots of carbonation and retention, slight lacing.

A: Lots of banana, spice, bread, biscuit malt, sweet bread as well, subtle aromas.

T: Follows the nose with banana, spice, herbs, malts, light fruity candy taste, very smooth, incredibly drinkable.

M: Light bodied with a good amount of carbonation and a smooth drinkability a great warm weather beer.

O: Basic, not much depth or complexity, but a well brewed beer that I found surprisingly enjoyable, was not expecting much but this would make a great warm weather beer.

Pours a crystal clear deep straw or pale gold producing a 1.5 inch, white, tight/fine bubbled, somewhat lasting head that leaves little lacing. Aroma is wheat, with notes of banana, lemon & apple/pear & a very faint hint of sulfur. Taste nice blend of wheat, banana & apple/pear tones with notes of cloves & black pepper spice in the finish. Finish is crisp & dry with little detectable hop presence. A bit thin (watery) bodied with a medium-high carbonation but clean & refreshing. Aftertaste is a faintly bitter, yeasty fruitiness. Very drinkable.

A: Crystal clear, golden straw color with a mammoth white head from an aggressive pour,

S: Straw, wheat malts, I get a little of the classic spice and banana associated with a hefewiezen but not a pronounced as the unfiltered cousin.

T: Sweet malts from the wheat, then a subtle spicyness that I smelled but everything is so much more mild than I expected.

M: Light

O: Hefewiezen is one of my favorite styles and I was excited to try this when I saw it. I like it but a lot of the reasons I like the style is thwarted by the filtering. I guess I will stick with the Hefewiezen.

Bottle pour. One finger head with decent lacing. Aroma is banana and wheat. Taste follows aroma. I really enjoyed this beer. To me, this is a great example of the style.

L: Clear, golden, minimal white lacing
S: Bready, malt, Honey
T: same as the smell with a touch of bitterness, a very low profile taste that allows for higher drinkability
F: standard feel, medium carbonation

Overall: This is a lighter kristall weizen that has more long-term drinkability than Weihenstephaner's version. If you're drinking more than 1, Tucher is the way to go...if you're drinking just 1 beer and going for full flavor, Weihenstephaner has a bigger flavor profile and is a few cents more in cost.
