Serving Type: 500 mL Bottle

A- Pours a Hazy Copper colour topped by a fairly lacklustre, although pillowy 1/2 finger head.

S- Classic banana Hefe smell, along with a hint of wheat malt and zesty orange peel.

T- Less of the Banana and more orange peel, bubblegum. Noticeable taste of wheat malt.

M- Medium body and moderate carbonation.

O- A good example of a German Hefe that stays true to the traditional stylistic guidelines.

So long since I’ve had a real weizen. Nice pillowy head, grain aroma, slightly sweet, taste is light on the normal banana and bubblegum, but still fairly chewy. Fine sediment added via the bottle swirl, makes for a slightly cloudy beer. Good, but not the best.

L: clody amber orange color, gives of a fine medium head, fine lacing on the glass

S: Yeast, banana ripes , cloves, hints of citrus fruits and corriander.

T : folllows the nose for the most, yeast ,banana, citrus,cloves and other spices,

F: high carbonation , a bitterness in the finish that does not last for so long.very easy to drink

O: a good hefeweiz , easy drinkable. Taste is good. But i think it gets to anonymus in the taste compared to other weissbiers. is a lot of others in Germany that is much better, but all in all not a bad beer

So good-but-unexceptional across the board. The pour, nose, and taste profile are classic German weissebier. Cloudy straw-orange pour. Light dough and cloves on the nose. Light esters and light creamy malt flavor. It does all these well, but none great. This is a beer I wouldn't hesitate to pull off the shelf if one of my preferred hefes isn't available. However, it isn't special enough to seek out.
