This beer is so delicious. I gave it an overall score of 4.75. It's hard to not finish every last drop. The taste is yeasty and is much like Wiehenstephaner or Leffe Blonde. I live in a small Texas town so good beer is harder to come by. Luckily one of our liquor stores carries this brew. Fantastic!

hazy golden color with a nice head that stays for a while. nice full lacing.
faint smell. taste is bready obviously, with flavors of banana and citrus, maybe some spice. the citrus bitterness lingers and makes it an interesing beer.

Look: A bit darker than a typical 5% American offering the German beer offers a unique taste exclusive to the Weissbier style which comes in rare form in South Texas. It offers a texture that is appealing to anyone that likes a refreshing choice of beer.

Smell: The smell offers hints of citrus in a tangy aroma that is more powerful than typical light beer offerings.

Taste: The style offered by this Munich brewerer is a staple of German beer and culture in my experience.

Feel: The feel very effervescent in it's delivery. It hits the palate with a strong feel to the side receptors of the tounge that detect a sour and tart flavor that is unique to the style.

Overall: This offering gives a strong impression of an international style rarely found, but championed in my region where German culture is celebrated. This taste Munich Brewing is a great reminder of the diversity of European beer offerings and is a staple in my selection. Bravo!

500 ml can, poured in a Weissen-glass. Pours a hazy yellow golden colour, with a moderate two finger white head. Vivid carbination, small bubbles, fine foam, Biscuity smell, some sweetness, a bit of banana, little herby tanginess.
Smooth mouth feel, Very round, profound, bready tasts swith, develops sweet-sour fruity, green apple, with a tingly a bit more bitter aftertaste.

Excellent beer, great value for money.

Sort of citrusy, sort of tangy and sour. Goes down smoothly, kind of crisp, has a nice aftertaste, kind of lingers for a while but that tartness makes for an interesting aftertaste. It isn't a heavy flavor, it is kind of light, not hearty, but still a full beer. All around good beer

Steady head, banana and clove aroma. Slightly bitter taste. Amazing Bavarian Weißbier.

Fantastic beer, if you like the unique taste of hefeweizen! Unfortunately, it's almost impossible to find in upstate NY. Expiration date is on bottle which is not always the case for hefeweizens.

This is either my #1 or #2 favorite beer, nothing bad to say about it. This is a true hefeweizen and comes in usually a little cheaper than the other popular german hefeweizens. Very thick and foamy feel to it, with a strong banana bread flavor that is perfect for enjoying during the colder months.

Sweet and banana with a gentle coriander finish, might be even better then weihenstephaner weissbeer. Possibly the most appetising beer to look at in a glass in the world.
