Although it is one of the better samples in the Brewer's Advent Calendar from Costco, this nice wheat beer still suffers from bad can.

Huber Weisses Original pours a deep golden with nice foam, fizz and lace. The aroma is subdued but fresh. The taste is a nice wheat malty taste with some hops, overpowering a metallic can taste. The yeasty overtones are slightly fruity and funky. It lingers a bit metallic, but still superior to the others from the collection that I've tried thus far.

Recommended.

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden yellow, with a moderate, persistent white cloud top head. Elegent Belgian-style lacing adorns the glass walls. Small streams of fat bubbles drift lazily to the surface.

Aroma: Wheat malt, white bread, faint cloves, mild phenols, a hint of white pepper, and a mild spicy note, not quite of cloves, define the aroma.

Taste: Opens with hints of overripe banana, soon followed by white bread malt. There are also faint hints of citrus rinds, more of a suggestion, than a presence. The relatively high ABV of 5.6% does not give itself away. Late in the taste, there are hints of bitter apple rind. Finishes with a mild grassy hop note.

Mouth feel: Soft, full, and pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: A quite decent and drinkable example, well worth a try, or two.

Presentation: Packaged in a 500 ml, 16.9 ounce steel can, served in a standard Pilsener glass. Beer number fourteen (December 14th) from the 2017 Costco Advent Beer Calendar. Expiration date on bottom of can is 03/2019.

Another underrated beer on this site.

It’s important to pour this style correctly. I turn the uncapped bottle 3-4 times vertically then horizontally on the table 3-4 times. Pour down at an angle to 1/8th in Weizen glass. Swirl the bottom 1/8 gently. Pour the rest.

Excellent honey color with a 4F head. Good head retention.

Spicy, licorice aroma and taste.

Light body and very drinkable.

Quite enjoyable.

500 ml can (advent 14) poured into a hefe glass. A slightly hazy golden orange with one finger head that moves immediately to a thin lace. Aroma is clove, banana, and spices. The taste is right in line with the aroma. Medium carbonation and feel. A hefe worth a go.

Pours a slightly foggy straw yellow with two fingers of stark white head. Head retention is good with great lacing left behind. Aroma is pilsner, bread, and biscuit malts with a touch of yeast and clove in the background. It smells like fresh biscuit dough with a bit of clove and yeast in the background. Flavor profile is biscuit, and bread malts. Clove with a little bit of yeast add a little sweetness to the back end. Mouth feel is medium in thickness with a lightly fizzy, but otherwise smooth texture. Overall, a sweet, doughy beer that sips easily in both flavor and feel.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 16oz can.
