One of the best looking Weissbiers I've seen. The head was so thick and creamy, almost like the meringue on pie. Gorgeous color, nice and hazy, and plenty of bready aromas coming off the nose. Palate offers plenty of wheaty/bready flavors with nice tang from the yeast, minimal hop influence, and excellent drinkability. Carbonation felt a little low for the style, however. Very impressed with this new beer to my market.

This was a great beer. I bought this at a Walmart in China. It has a hazy, almost golden color with a slight head. It has a citrus/wheat mix taste, not too strong but certainly not weak. It was smooth and enjoyable. I'll pick this one up again.

Pours beautifully into my Weihenstephan, a brilliant clouded golden orange glow looks amazing. Big cloudy thicket of textured billowing head rises well above the rim of the glass. Intricate scattered lacing lines the sides of the tall weissbier glass. Aroma has tart apple esters in the forefront with spiced bread hints of banana from the yeast esters. Balanced sweet caramelized sugars, tart fruit again sliced apples/ripened banana comes to mind. The spicy yeast really compliments the malts and esters, mild herbal grassiness arrives as well this is world class German hefeweizen. Mouthfeel is effervescent with sturdy carbonation, not overdone never cloying even with some pretty sweet components just a really well made hefe. Overall I could drink this on any sunny day, I hope to catch more bottles this summer. I had never seen the label so I picked it up on a whim, glad that I did.

Aroma is wheat, light bananas and funky/spicy cloves. The flavor is wheat, light citrus, mild fruit sweetness, cloves and a slightly spicy/tart finish.

Hazy and orange. Huge creamy head, very persisting. Leaving a fantastic lacing. Strong, mature banana aroma and moderate phenols. Low malt aroma. Low aroma of floral hops. Medium sweet, low yeast bitterness. Medium body, medium-high carbonation, grainy, light dry finish, spiciness.

Very tasty
