Poured from the 11.2 oz. bottle into an Erdinger Weissbier glass.

a: Translucent deep gold with a huge fluffy white head which receded to thin surface foam and considerable lacing.

s: Mild ripe fruit. Some floral fragrance mixed in later.

t: Mostly sweet fruit cocktail. Very pleasant.

m: Silky smooth.

o: Highly refreshing and tasty. Certainly one of the best if not the best Hefe I have had.
