Very cheap yellow color but it makes up with its wheat and citrus aroma. Taste is average for a heffe, a little to much citrus for me.

Sly Fox : Royal Weisse

12 oz can. Bready and wheaty upfront with some faint citrus aroma. In the taste, wheat malt, astringent and grainy at times, light citrusy hops, and a small yeasty fruityness in the finish. Medium bodied with a grainy bite to it. Closer to an American Pale Wheat Ale than a true Hefe, as the flavors never really cross into the banana/bubblegum/clove range that is typical of the better Hefe's out there. Still, not a bad effort, but this ones a bit harsh and there are many better examples of the style out there.

A Bavarian style Weisbier that needs better yeast character and less buttery notes.

An orange-golden hue brings about a mystic foggy haze and some yeast/protiens floating about. Light on head formation, retention, and lacing.

A lot of wheat beady flavor and aroma is followed by clove, apples, and butterscotch. Decorated with esters of appricots, papayas, and a light bubble gum note, the flavors are somewhat masked by the buttery notes that claim the body and finish. Sweet with malts are likely amplified by the buttery notes as well.

The body does have a delicate creamy note, but doesn't give that refreshing lemony finish. Instead, a mouth coating slickness gives the final impressions.

Royal Weisse is probably an above average American-brewed German beer. But that diacetyl (buttery) character really brings it down.

Thanks Bobfinkenaur!

Serving: on-tap at the Standard tap in Philadelphia, PA

Pours a cloudy gold color with thin white head. Aroma was kind of week with only a faint hint of citrus. Flavor was bland as well with a slight touch of lemon citrus. Very crisp with a very slight sour finish.

Poured a can of this into a shaker glass.

A: Pours a hazy, golden body with a thick, white head with pretty good retention and lacing.

S: A pretty sweet, malty smell with some slight banana notes.

T: A slightly metallic, malty taste with some metallic, alcohol aftertaste. The banana notes seemed to disappear and the alcohol was a bit much, especially for the style. As I drank it more, it seemed that it was a bit too much of a sweet juice as opposed to a malted beverage.

M: Seemed a bit overcarbonated and unimpressive.

D: Ok drinkability overall, but the taste and the mouthfeel were not very complimenting to each other. The carbonation was definitely overpowering and the taste seemed a little too juice-like and sweet.

On tap at Bar Americain midtown Manhattan.

Poured a nice hazy yellow/orange with 1.5" head. Nicely laced as I drank.

Decent nose, banana and clove noticeable but not pronounced.

Muted flavors, however, limited this hefe for me. Alcohol bite at the end not expected (and not welcomed, really).

In the end, this is an average hefe at best.
