The Kulmbacher Kapuziner (say that three times fast) offers a beautiful appearance in the glass with a hazy (but not cloudy) golden-orange body that displays very fine, effervescent bubbles rising steadily beneath a huge head of bright-white froth. The head holds exceptionally well and leaves nice, wide rings of lace and bolds splashes about the glass. The nose is somewhat restrained for the style but offers some banana (and crisp apple) but little clove; and mainy expresses a sweetish, wheat-based maltiness. The body is medium and dextrinous with a very fine carbonation that leaves it creamy and smooth. The flavor displays a rich but not overly sweet, wheat malt that's touched by banana and light, juicy summer fruits (apple, and perhaps some melon) backed by a sublime bitterness and delicate spiciness. Some hop flavors even peek through at the swallow! It's very well-balanced and smooth - and not as richly sweet and effervescent as some - but possibly more drinkable. Well done! And certainly worth seeking out for fans of the style! Unique!

Served in a Sswing top bottle, 500 ml.Poured hazy orange color with a frothy head. Nice lacing. Typical banana and yeast aroma. Flavor is banana and clove, some spicyness and bubblegum. Very drinkable, making this hefeweizen one of the better I have tried. I'd buy it more often, by my neighbor brought this home from Germany so I'm not sure where to find out where I live. Never seen it in a store anywhere.

Pours chill hazed with thick white head filling the upper 1/3 of the Paulaner Weisbier glass. Slowly falling it is supported by strong beading and substatial lace. Aroma of citrus and clove and belgium yeasts. Taste very solid with hint of clove and citrus balance with sweet grain. Great mouthfeel supported with high carbonation finishes dry but no bitterness from the hops. A very drinkable Hefe-Weizen. Anyone loving this style should be pleased.

A tall, roiling, starch and protein bomb emerged over this muddy yellow liquid. The top layer was glazed pearlescent. It chattered.
The aromas were rebel-hoppy.
"This is Bavarian Hefe Weizen?"
Aromas of popperings, glazed lemons, cakes, doughs, sweet fruit cocktail, angelfood, clove-laden pineapple cakes, dry, juicy apricots, cream, butter...
pine...
lime...
keylime, cinnamon.
An unctuous, melting texture.
Flavors of orange, pepper and sour banana give it seriousness.

The hops and thorough attenuation make it bone dry, but it is loaded with glycerin.

Hazy orange colour. Rich head. Bananas, cloves, tangerines, bubblegum. Exemplary Hefeweizen, one of the best.
