This beer is made in the state of Hesse, and it makes a great wheat beer. It is the national group of Binding in Frankfurt. The orignial brewery site was the home of Peter Schoffer, a pioneering printer from the same deal as Gutenberg. This is very dry with a plummy, damsonlike fruitiness and a suggestion of grapefruit zest in the finish. It is widely available in Germany and can be drunk at any time of the day (trust me). It is one of my absolute favorite beers in the world.

Poured a huge, creamy, vanilla head that sat a half inch above the top of the glass until it faded slowly leaving thick strands of lace. Hazy golden colored beer. It smells amazing. There is a dose of soft yeasty banana, a pinch of clove, and underneath it all are citrus and floral notes. Soft, moderately full bodied beer holds a good amount of carbonation that keeps it fluffy on the tongue. Cotton candied citrus flavors are supported by yeasty banana flavors. Citrus flavor is a hair sour like a Witbier at first, but then switches to slightly bitter towards the finish. Flavor could be a bit fuller, but otherwise this is a really tasty Hefe Weizen.

Appearance: Cloudy apricot, beautiful balanced head which lasts for a nice while it thickens, leaving a nice display of lacing. It looks like what a Hefe Weizen should look like.

Smell: smells strongly of banana and earthen spices. Great Smell

Taste/ Mouthfeel: Cloves and earthen spices hit the palate and release a range of tarty sweetness on the edge which then changes into the banana we witnessed earlier in the smell. Meanwhile the earthen spices and wheat course dryness attacks the centre of the palate asking for another sip. The aftertaste is that of apple skin with a bitterness of the edge of the palate. The whole mix has just the right amount of carbonisation to make it refreshing yet goes down so easy that drinking this is a breeze

Drinkability/Overall: A great Hefe Weizen. Easy drinking. This one has all the right moves. A great Hefe Weizen to introduce to a beer drinker unfamiliar of the style.
