Into a weizen glass. Finger of head with a cloudy dark brown body.
Barnyard smell with a little ripe dark fruit. A bit muted though.
A little sweetness, mild bitterness and a chalkiness. Disappointing and weak taste. None of the style's characteristic richness.
Too fizzy, medium body.
Not impressed or interested by this.

ruby pour, awesome head, hazy throughout.
smell- yes, definitely cloves, banana, spice.
taste- one of my all time favorites(for, like, 30 years) although after so many i have come to be quite sensitive to the richness of these weisse brews.
mouthfeel is carbonation, spice; full feeling inside....
overall, this is, like i said, one of my favorite beers for so many years, before i tried so many others from belgium and before Total Wine and BEVMO came to town. OLD WORLD was the greatest place in the world and the best place to drink them. this isthe last one of the case i bought a few months ago and i'm srprised to find i hadnt reviewed it yet. i rated it, but didnt review it. i still love this stuff...
