Got this one at the Mitra in Maarssen

From a 50cl swing top bottle into a weissen glass

APPEARANCE: Pours a three finger, fluffy, creamy white head with great retention. Hazy gamboge orange with medium levels of carbonation evident. Head slowly fades to a full cap and leaves some lacing on the top of the glass.

SMELL: Bolder nose of wheat malt, clove, bubble gum and light citrus aromas. Hints of bread as well. Nice stuff.

TASTE: Wheat, clove and bready flavors with a decent punch of bubble gum at the swallow. Bold finish of wheat malt, bready flavors, clove spices, bubble gum and light citrus flavors linger on the palate. Good stuff.

PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Creamy on the palate, goes down smooth and finishes a touch dry.

OVERALL: Good stuff. Not quite top of the line in the style, but it's definitely on the right side of the tracks. Worth checking out if you see it in your area.

All right hefeweizen. Nice look with a huge head. Quite balanced all along. Big wheat and yeast presence. Estery, it's not citrusy and I prefer it that way

500ml can

appearance: hazy golden, 2 to 3 finger head. Lively carbonation. Head dissapeared quickly, Poor lacing.

smell: banana. clove, slightly pineapple.

taste: same as the smell with an extra sour note that may have been there cause the beer was close to the expiring date.

mouthfeel: really nice and smooth, goes down easily.

overall: one of the best hefes I've tried.

A perfect example of a good hefeweizen beer, and can be easily found for a few cents here in Germany. You can't ask for more, just drink it

New packaging in a flip top bottle. From the bottle, it pours a hazy light amber with a significant white head. Bananas and clove in both the nose and mouth. Very smooth flavored Weissbier. Wow!

Decanted into American pint glass. Pours a hazy honey brown color. Really interesting mocha taste (I just wasn't expecting this from a heze weizen). Light bodied consistent with alcohol content. Would serve this to beer afficiandos.

Serving: From the bottle on the banks of the Spree
Served: August 2016

The long formal review is lacking here since I'm getting to this one really late- this was a marvelous hefeweizen and one that I would highly recommend. The yeast notes are robust and give the beer nice banana and clove notes, even a hint of sweeter cardamom. Very good beer.
