Bomber poured into a Weiss bier glass

Frothy white cap, no lacings. Clear golden yellow with a steady steam of bubbles.

Aroma of bananas, spice, pepper.

Clean, crisp hefewiesse with the classic taste of banana yeast

Carbonation on the front of the tongue and then the more on the finish

Clean, crisp, fresh and delicious hefewiesse , a great summertime beer.

A- big big frothy ivory white head. Lasts and lasts. Not much lacing. Cloudy straw tinted yellow.

S- banana!!! Sugary scented wheat and barley. Clove. I loved the smell of this. It reminded me of the smells associated when visiting a brewery.

T- spicy, crisp, banana, slight citrus.

M- light, smooth, great balance.

O- a very good beer. I consider Schneider Weisse hefeweizen to be the gold standard. This doesn't measure up, in my opinion, but it is a very solid beer. Nobody does it better than the Germans.

Cheers!

Poured from a bottle into an Erdinger weissbier glass. The pour is slightly cloudy with a straw-like color. It sports a mammoth creamy white head that retains quite well and leaves some nice clumpy lacing. I can see some bubbles streaming up from the bottom of the glass, but it's difficult because the beer is so cloudy. The nose has lots of spicy phenols and some fruity esters. I get clove, white pepper, bartlet pears, and a hint of vanilla.

Light-medium body with a crisp, slightly tart flavor and nice firm feel. The flavor seems to favor drier, tarter flavors than the sweet fruity flavors of some beers of this style. There are flavors of crackers, cereal-like notes, tart apple and lemon flavors, as well as some soft wheat. A nice hop addition at mid-palate adds peppery notes and dries out the flavor. The dryness lingers on the finish, which is very refreshing.

Overall an outstanding hefeweizen. The flavor is a bit on the mild side compared to Weihenstephaner's, but this interpretation of the style would appeal to fans of drier beers. The sweetness and fruit notes are toned down and the peppery hops and tart wheat flavors are turned up. It's a wonderful treat on a sunny spring day.
