Saw the label and had to try this discount 500 bottle

A- hazy yellow but somehow crisp. Really pretty looks

S- bubblegum! I finally pick it up well in this one and it's great

T- same as the smell very very nice. Can't better than this

M- the hops and dryness come through with the great carbonation

O - man now this is the German hefe to try! Best so far

Poured from bottle into a weizen glass

Appearance – Pours a massively hazy yellow color with a nice thick pure white head. THE thick head persists for a very long time, slowly fading over time to leave a great level of streaky lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The smell is heavy of wheat and yeast with a moderately strong smell of spices. The spices are mainly of clove and cardamom but are joined by some light pepper as well. Along with these smells is a big lemon citrus and grassy aroma producing a nice yeasty and lemony Hefeweizen smell overall.

Taste – The taste begins with a bready and smooth wheat taste. It is on the drier side from the start, but does have some sweetness of lemonade and banana. As the flavor advances yeast begins finding its way to the tongue, with it growing rather strong at the end of the taste. While the yeast gets stronger so too does a lighter clove flavor. At the same time the yeast and clove grow stronger the sweeter flavors of a lemonade nature lessen, with a light grassy and hay like flavor coming to the taste at the very end and combining with the rest to leave a very smooth but somewhat subdued Hefeweizen flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the lower side as well. A bit more carbonation may have been slightly more fitting as it would have complemented nicely the lighter body in making for a very easy drinking brew.

Overall – An alright Hefeweizen. It looks fantastic and has a good aroma, but the flavors are just a bit too subdued and the carbonation is a bit too light. Just OK.
