500ml can, day 2 of the 2015 Costco Beer Advent Calendar - uh-huh, more hefeweizen to drink on a thankfully sunny, and not so chilly December afternoon.

This beer pours a hazy, yet bright medium golden yellow colour, with three fat fingers of puffy, finely foamy, and somewhat bubbly eggshell white head, which leaves some decent splattered bugs on a summer windshield lace around the glass as it slowly sinks out of sight.

It smells of bready and doughy, pale and wheaty malt, banana pudding, a wisp of generic citrus, faintly phenolic yeast, and a touch of clove/white pepper spice. The taste is semi-sweet, grainy wheat malt, wet banana chips, bland orange peel, middling yeast, and a hard to really pin down wan spice character.

The carbonation is quite light on its frothy and occasionally fizzy feet, the body teetering on the light side of yer typical middleweight, and generally smooth, nothing really nosing around, looking for trouble. It finishes off-dry, the wheaty cereal essence continuing to run the show.

Overall, not a bad version of the style, the fruit and spice esters kept well reined-in, and with a suggestion of crispness that makes me actually want to put back the rest of this can - a wonder in itself, yeah, but I'm sure that I've got more of this to 'look forward to' in the coming weeks.

On-draught at an alphaus near Innsbruck, Austria.

Cost was .5L/3.80 euro. Regrettably brief notes below:

A: Beautifully frothy white head. Soft-looking. Even. ~5 minute retention. Messy lacing.

Body is a bright yellow-orange of nice vibrance. Hazy but translucent. No yeast is visible within. Turbid.

Sm: Banana esters. Fresh wheat. Ideal sweetness. No orange peel, clove, or lemon.

T: Wheat. A hint of banana. Fresh barley. Balanced, though simple even for a hefeweizen, lacking the subtle yeast profile of the best beers in the style. Well built nevertheless.

Mf: Light-bodied and refreshing, with a classic smooth wet texture. High carbonation for the style. Could be softer.

O: Definitely drinkable and enjoyable. A worthwhile wheat beer, though given its country of origin you can do far better. I wouldn't shell out 3.80 euro again, but it's likable stuff.

Feel: Medium-light body and medium-high carbonation.

O: very good for style. Refreshing and generally good with food.

Hazy deep golden color with white head. Aroma has the classic banana and cloves plus some vanilla and citrus. Taste is also classic but also has a light marzipan, slightly on the sweet side with a spicy finish. Body is creamy but also well carbonated. A really nice surprise, one of the best hefeweizen I had recently.

On-tap at Weissbrau Huber, on to the beer:

This weissbier is almost banana peel yellow with a creamy head when served. The retention on top and lacing around the glass are at good levels. Its aroma brings some lemon to the table and vague fruitiness, not the high level of goodness that I've come to expect out of Bavaria. A little of the hope returns though. The taste offers notes of gala apple, then lemon and banana, and a mild clove spiciness. The beer is lighter-medium, with bubbly carbonation.

Not a bad weissbier out of Huber. Fine afternoon refresher.

Third beer of my German tasting evening, 2nd July 2010. This brown half litre bottle was poured into one of my 'Franziskaner' Weissbier glasses (the beer was best before 3rd Nov 2010).

This is one of the best Hefeweizen I've had, very impressed: The beer had a great cloudy body, leaning towards the orange side of dirty yellow, the cracking white head was a stayer, lasting to the last drop of beer.

The nose was all you'd expect, great waves of vanilla with banana esters following up behind, lovely. Nutmeg appeared in the mix too.

Refreshing and very drinkable, the usual hefeweizen flavours combining to produce a very good beer and one I'll look out for in future.

Hazy appearance, orange in color. Big white fluffy head, very creamy.
Not banana in the smell, but some spices (cloves and green pepper), wheat and yeast,
At the taste again wheat and yeast, pratically non banana. Spicy again, quite evident, and at the end some hint of fresh spices (anise? Juniper?).
Medium body.
The aftertaste is on the same line, with a sharp spicy note.
Relatively less sweet than a classic weizen.

500 ml can, PRD 07/01/2015 EXP 09/01/2016. Acquired a single can of this stuff as part of a mixed six pack from the local Binny's. Hefe-Weizenbier, with a lot of text in German on the can.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - Pours a cloudy pale golden body, about a finger of frothy soapy white head that leaves nice strands of scattered lacing behind. Appears aptly carbonated. Looks very nice for what it is.

S - A fumey, at times grapey sort of aroma. Heavy presence of cloves. Floral, with a mild alcohol tinge and yeast.

T - Taste follows the nose: creamy & wheaty, notes of clove, oranges, & grain.

M - Smooth & easy-drinking. Crisp, with good carb.

Overall, an authentic stab at the style. Recommended for those interested in this style.

From the Advent box. Poured into a snulip. A hazy golden color with a two-finger white head. Nice retention. Lots of bubblegum and banana, faint clove and wheat on the nose. The taste fell a bit below my expectations from the aroma. All the elements were there, but it felt a bit washed out and muddled. The feel was also thin. Medium carbonation.

A: Pours a cloudy, pale-yellow. Bright white one finger head. Very creamy.

S: Very nice aromas of banana, clove, bubblegum, and lemony citrus.

T: Tart citrus right off the bat with banana, clove, and toasted malt. Very subdued spicyness.

M: Starts tart, turns spicy, and finishes creamy.

D: Excellent, very refreshing!

From the can, it pours a hazy golden amber with a large classic weissbier head. Fluffy and long lasting. Definite banana and clove in the nose. The mouth gets some banana as well. Yum!

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.

Served in a pint glass from the can.

Appearance: Looks more like a lager than a hefeweizen, darker but very transparent gold color. Initially a thick white head rising about two finger's length dropping after the first sip wth very sticky lacing.

Smell: Banana skin, and super bland. Worst property of the beer.

Taste: After you let it sit for a bit there's a semi-sweet banana feel to the beer. Lightly bitter and touch malty. Lacks some complexity which I've had with other german hefeweizens.

Mouth: Not really sticky, and lacking complexity when placing the glass down.

Overall: Descent brew, i can think of a few better hefs for a lot cheaper. I got this from an advent calendar
