A very solid Hefe that looks the part and tastes just fine. From the murky yellow body to the substantial white topping the look is solidly wheat and this is repeated in the fruity and spicy aroma with hints of banana popping through. The flavor is fruity and spicy with clovishness throughout the flavor spectrum. Good mouthfeel with a decent finish. Easily a most drinkable brew.

500ml bottle poured into a pint glass. Best before the end of May 2011.

A: Cloudy light orange body. Big fluffy head leaves a bit of lacing.

S: Yeast and citrus.

T: Mainly cloves and yeast. Also citrus and banana.

M: On the heavy side of light, if that makes any sense. Pretty creamy.

D: A solid Bavarian hefe. Nothing more, nothing less.

Pours a cloudy copper gold with a fluffy head.

There is a doughy yeasty aroma that mingles with a robust fruit element.

A cider flavor mingles with yeast and citrus to create a unique taste that is unlike any other weisse I have ever had.

Thin and infinitely drinkable. There is a reason why the Germans call these breakfast beers--they are light, smooth and very refreshing and easy to drink.

I like this beer alot and cannot wait to try to Dunkel.

Pours a hazy golden on a weiss glass. 2 inch creamy head that faded quickly into a tiny lacing.
Sweet cloves on the nose, citrus fruit, a bit medicinal too.
Some tartness on the tongue, chewy mouthfeel, a bit of banana and cloves again.
Hint of hops, way back there.
Very smooth, very drinkable.
Overall a decent Weiss.
