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.
