This beer had a mildly hazy body with a lot of white carbonation. The aroma was like hay and clove. The flavor was more like grainy cereal and clove. It had a medium mouthfeel. This beer went great pizza. I would definitely buy it again and it seemed to be a local favorite.

this muddy yellow brew is a very easy to drink and thirst quenching German Weizen ... smell and taste are dominated by peach, however the brew is not 'sticky' ... nothing really special, but a good average Weizen, and that is a good start, isn't it?

Bubbly foam, white, quite ugly. Yellow to green color, slightly hazy. The foam falls down quickly. Not a good sign for a weizen.
Light smell, with a background of banana, green apple, cloves and wheat.
The taste is really light, and tasteless. Useless.
Sweetie, not inviting.
Same for the aftertaste, sweetness, and then a light hop.
Almost null body.

Regular weiss. The foam disapperared in 1 minute, looked like soap foam, not thicky as we are used too. I would prefer other if available.
It is drinkable though, but nothing special.
It was oferred to me in Lindau as a local beer.
It's worth to try once. I will not look for it again.

A very good head appropriate of a hefeweizen - almost about 4 fingers thick. Cloudy white color. Strong aroma and good finish. The taste is full of cloves, wheat and banana. Slightly thicker feel. Worth a try but nothing to differentiate or worth remembering about this brew.
