3.72/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours a cloudy, bright straw color, finger of bright white head that dissipates quickly but leaves a pretty appealing ring of lacing.

Aroma is wheat and citrus, enticing.

The flavor is really nice. It is balanced between dry and sweet. Lots of wheat with undertones of fruit and citrus.

The feel is well balanced and with a pretty high amount of carbonation.

Good beer. Glad I picked it up.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Pours a finger of head, but is quickly gone. The body is a cloudy medium straw color.
The aroma is mild banana, clove and wheat.
The taste is mildly sweet; banana and apricot mostly.
The texture is crisp with soft edges and moderate carbonation.
A descent job with the Hefe considering I found it in Korea.

A: Bright but clouded straw body with a pure white head that you could rest a coin on.

S: Refreshing blend of citrus/bananas and general wheatness. No yeast spice.

T: Very much reflects the aroma with its pungent citrus/banana blend. Very nice. The fruit lingers long afterwards. It's not sweet but not completely dry. There's a little bit of powdered sherbet and some solvent towards the end. In every other mouthfull I get marzipan/almonds.

M: Nice and zingy. A tiny bit sticky.

O: This is marketed as cheap German grog so I thought it would be shit but I love it (when it's fresh, that is). It has become one of my staples here in South Korea. Much prefer it to Weihenstephaner, the most overrated beer on BA.
