A - Slightly clouded, beautiful billowing, snow white cap. Carbonation was steady and relentless.
S - Clove, slight ripe banana elements, Grassy notes all balanced quite well.
T - Biscuit, delicate hop note, wonderful yeasty notes.
F - On this hot day the fell was exquisite. light and delicate.
O - A very nice offering, I have passed up several times, but not again.
Cheers

Poured from bottle marked best before 2015/09 into Weizen glass

Aroma is there but not at all strong. I was left wanting more. Taste is spot on for the style, requisite banana and clove with a crisp finish.

Overall a solid beer. Wishing I had bought more.

This is a fantastic German Hefeweizen. Right up there with my other favorites- Franziskaner, Weinstephaner and Ayinger. A pleasure to drink..

Prost!!
