Tasted on tap in Frankfurt airport in a traditional wheat beer glass.

A - Color is medium gold. Cloudy, but still lets light through. Thick, white head. Massive lacing.

S - Clean wheat and pilsner grain aroma. The malt is well balanced against grassy hops and clove.

T - Clean malt and wheat flavor. Clove is muted. No banana noted. Solid hops bitterness and grassy flavor.

M - Medium to full body. Smooth and creamy feel. Prickly carbonation. Light alcohol presence.

O - This is a very cleanly made and balanced Weizen. Surprising creaminess and low yeast esthers make this stand out from the crowd for me.

an easy drinking, nicely balanced hefeweizen: very tasty

aroma: cloves, candied banana, nut and citrus

taste: cloves, candied banana, nut, citrus, passionfruit, spice with some slight medicinal taste coming through

a very enjoyable and refreshing drink - not complex but not meant to be

Arrives a straw-grapefruit blend in color. Completely cloudy yet translucent, it almost looks lit from behind. Good lace for a hefeweizen.
Smell is somewhat restrained but notes of malt, cloves, bananas, and yeast. Well balanced.
Taste is more forward than the nose with the same malty backbone carrying bananas, clove, nutmeg, yeast and vanilla notes. Very good balance. Good complexity.
Medium bodied with a pronounced and tangy effervescence. Drying from the middle on. A mere whiff of warming late. Well done.

A: Cloudy orange yellow, white head.

S: Wheaty, grainy, slightly bananery.

T: Not a lot going on at all. None of that Hefe banana-like goodness even though it's in the nose. It's not watery but it's very insipid.

O: A very boring beer. Never again. The cheery orange label promised a mouthfull of citrusy refreshment so what a disappointment.
