500ml bottle. 12/13/17 bottle date. Appearance: Cloudy Light golden with a thick frothy white head and nice lacing. Aroma: Strong eaters of banana and clove yeast, with a hint of lemon and wheat maltiness Taste: Rich, sweet wheat maltiness, strong fruit esters of pear and banana, finished with some clove spice and a light bitterness Mouthfeel: Moderate bodied with a nice creaminess from the wheat, and a high carbonation. Finish: Banana and pear eaters dominate the finish and linger long after the swallow Overall: World class hefe with an amazing yeast character that transforms the beer. Fruity esters of banana and pear dominate the aroma all the way through the taste and finish. Pinch of clove spice creates balance, and high wheat protein character adds a luscious creaminess to the body and creates an amazing frothy foam head. High carbonation accentuates everything.

This is the most popular hefeweizen around town considering that it is not too difficult to get a hold of a fairly fresh 2 to 4 month old bottle of. This is your starting off point of the top shelf German hefeweizens. A great balance of flavor right here. Because of its availability here in the USA and there consistency in taste as well as being the oldest brewery EVER I am going to give it the lower end of world class score let's say it is spot on for a 95 grade. It does not deserve much higher than that grade nor does it deserve much lower than that grade. A great balance in score just like the flavor that it brings. Cheers! A (95-99) world class score

This is a beer well done beautiful color and aroma, banana bread and cloves all the way. Too bad it's kinda expensive and hard to get by where I live.
