500ml bottle, best before 12/2013

A- Usual hefeweizen look: cloudy, maybe a little more on the darker/orange side than usual. Nice dense white head, good persistence and lacing

S- Malt sweetness, a hint of citrus, slight clove. Soft, quite weak

T- Soft and sweet bready malts, lemon, hints of banana. Classic touch of phenolic feel, with the usual hint of clove. Simple and straightforward classic hefe

M- Very nice mouthfeel, soft as it should be, body and carbonation in perfect average check for the style

O- Enjoyable and refreshing hefe, expecially worth in the summer. Just nothing special

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

appearance: usual cloudy mysticism of the good old Hefe. Little bit darker than the usual, but loving it

smell: distinct bananas you can not miss, almost a banana juice smell, slight edge of the hops for good measure

taste: hop bight up front then the good old rich goodness of the classic hefe. a malty pleasure for the tongue

mouthfeel: bit of a weaker mouth feel but not bad. keeps you sipping. good hot day brew

overall: A pleasant surprise I really enjoy. Happy to be having this brew and all it contains. A good brew worthy of another sample

On-tap at Beachwood Brewing

Pours a cloudy golden orange with a fluffy white head. Nice banana on the nose, plenty of wheat, and a great biscuit malt sweetness. Moderate clove aroma throughout and just a hint of bubblegum. Sweet bread and biscuit mealtimes on the nose. A hint of bubblegum, light citrus, an plenty of banana. Nice clove spiciness, soft wheat flavor, and a touch of straw. Really nice.

Been enjoying the Weltenburger lagers, but haven't tried the Weizens yet. Here's the first for me.

Brown, half-liter bottle, no real translatable dating to find. $3.50. Poured into my HB modified Will Becker -- great for any German style.

A -- Hazy peach color with a tremendously dense, slow-settling, light cream colored head.

S -- Clove and bubblegum up front, light bready malts and grainy wheat back. Even some mild citrus in the finish.

T -- Sweet, bready malts up front with light graininess, mellow phenols from the Weizen yeast balance nicely. Lightest citrus and bitterness in the finish.

M -- Medium-light body with a spritzy to dry mouthfeel.

O -- Maybe not the best Weizen I've ever tried, but this is a great example for anyone looking for something out-of-the-ordinary line of well-known brands. It has bigger, more pronounced flavors than many others and even takes on similar characters as Schneider.
