Cloudy Grapefruit. Zesty, barely there aroma with notes of cloves, fruit and orange. There isn’t much here upon tasting. It's citrusy, with notes of banana, clove and orange, along with a nice musty yeast taste and a fairly nice finish. Lacking in body and overall just not that flavorful or aromatic.

500ml brown bottle, no date information.

Clouded glazed lemon peel. Towering, pillowy bone white head of small and medium sized bubbles that settles slowly to a rocky head leaving no lacing. No carbonation streams are visible. Muted cloves with just a scant hint of bananas and gum, the smell is relatively restrained. Light lemon leads the way paired with some wheat grain notes and just a touch of cloves, There is an almost citrus freshness about the finish that mingles with a stale, old clove note, but neither lingers long. Incredibly non-distinct and the lemon is a bit too strong. Light-medium body with a flat, watery mouthfeel that seemed a bit like dishwater. The lack of carbonation was problematic. This was not overly enjoyable or refreshing and perhaps it was a bad or old bottle, but lacking date information, it is difficult to determine.

Poured into a Pint Glass...

Appearance-Cloudy golden yellow with a 3 finger tight bubbled white head. Slowly dissipates and leaves some spotty lacing.

Smell-Tons of wheat. I've been smelling it cold and a little warmer and I just get lots of wheat. Don't feel like I'm about to dig into a hefeweizen...Maybe the taste will be better.

Taste-Bread, Sweet malts, wheat. Subtle Lemon and Spice. Over ripe banana.

Mouthfeel-Carbonation takes over this beer. There may be some more flavors in there but I can't get best the massive carbonation that wipes any flavor off my tongue.

Overall-With so many drinkable hefeweizens out there, and judging to style, I would pass on this one 10 times out of 10. Not the best representation. Wasn't impressed w/ Ur Weisse and now Brau Weisse...

A: Cloudy gold colored body with a huge creamy white head. The head on this beer is magnificent. It looks like the top of a meringue pie. Good lacing.

S: Bold spicy noble hop aroma. Smells very nice, but it lacks all of the other aromas attributable to hefeweizens. No grain aromas either, just not as fresh smelling as it could be. This is an import bottle so it could be expected.

T: Light tartness in the mouth, some very faint earthy noble hop flavor. Only a tad of clove in the background. Clean aftertaste. No wheat flavor. A pre-packaged wheat cracker would have more wheat flavor. Very mild and uninteresting.

M: Good carbonation, Finishes a bit drier than I'd expect out of a hefeweizen, but it has an alright mouthfeel.

O: Overall I wasn't too impressed with this beer. I didn't taste any wheat, I didn't get much character out of the yeast, and it was just too passive. There is a slight tart flavor which is nice, but this is just not hitting the mark with me. Please take my review with a grain of salt because I am drinking an imported bottle with no bottle date or import date on the label. It was refrigerated when I went to buy it, but that doesn't guarantee freshness. I'm pretty disappointed. It is just very flat tasting (not under-carbonated).

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a pilsner glass. Reviewed from notes.

A- Healthy three finger white fluffy head. Clouded orange-yellow color.

S- Wheat, hay and lemon notes. Possibly some banana and cloves which would make sense.

T- Lemony and a grassy flavor. The wheat is strong and the banana is subtle but present.

M-Light and well carbonated.

O- Decent weisse. Had better.

A bland, thin, disappointing hefeweizen.

Pours a cloudy pale yellow hue. Not much of a head reducing to mere nothingness with no lace. Smells of banana and clove with some very subtle straw and funk. Tastes of lemon, straw, hardly any banana or anything else for that matter. Finishes flat and bland. No bottling date so I am hoping this is far past it's prime, because I was very let down by this one. Hopefully will get a fresher bottle next time and this rating will be reversed.
