Had on-tap in Berlin, poured into a tall weiss glass.

L: Pours a cloudy golden hue with ample head. Generous lacing.

S: Bananas and spices, mild citrus and cloves.

T/F: Pretty standard weiss. Yeasts and grains.. not an overpowering flavor. Slight citrus and mild banana. Decent carbonation.

O: Another typical German weiss beer. Decent for hot weather or with a meal. Very clean/crisp with no real negatives.... or positives for that matter.

Poured a nice light gold color with a thick white head that lasts a good while and leaves a light residual lacing. Smells of yeast, some clove, banana, citrus, bread. Taste is very light and refreshing with a bit of carbonation. Feel is very smooth and a little bubbly. Great Weissbier with a very easily drinkable, refreshing taste and feel. Great summer beer.

*Edited* because I had my first best by bottle. This beer FRESH is phe·nom·e·nal...

Murky yellowish-orange pour after adding in the sediment from the bottle. Thick, white head, that dissipates pretty quickly. Typical clove and banana but a little subdued. No noticeable hops. Flavor was lacking that sharp, tart, citrus aspect that I love about the style. A little too creamy on the palate. Not a bad hefeweizen, but not up there with the best German versions. It just didn't have that refreshing, effervescent quality.

3/28/15 (Bottle) - Golden blonde and a strong foam pour and strong carbonation. Nice wheat and citrus aroma. Enjoyed the crisp feel, and decent kick for an average AVB beer. Very pleasant taste, fruits present including citrus and slight banana taste. I really enjoyed this beer.

A clean and enjoyable beer to share with friends, women love it, no after taste with just a hint of banana flavor, the little bubbles fizzle in your mouth making you want to ask for more, very delightful beer that will catch you off guard if you let it...
