Type: 500ml bottle
Glass: Pilsner glass
From: Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido, Calif., on Jan. 5, 2013
Price: $3.49
Misc.: Part of the bottle reads “Brewed under the purity law, of 1516.”

Poured a golden orange, slightly hazy color with at least four fingers of soft rocky white head. Lots of head. Minimal lacing with great retention.

Smelled cloves, banana and honey up front, followed by some slightly corn and skunky malts with a whiff of vomit. Could smell the carbonation.

Tasted much better than the smell. Got cloves, spices and banana with a sweet aftertaste. Light lemon grass as well. Just fantastic.

Light body. Oily texture. Lively (above average) carbonation. Long finish.

Just a fantastic hefeweizen and another damn good beer by Weihenstephaner. I’m not too into hefe’s, but I’d be willing to reconsider after having this.
