500 ml. bottle. Hazy pale yellow colour, which turns into a rather dirty water colour when the foam fades, that is, in the blinking of an eye. But then it turns into a smell of spices, banana, clove, the usual for the style with a wet earth addendum. Medium body, good carbonation and taste of lemon, clove, coriander. Easily the best of the brand I've tasted, although is just the usual thing for a weizen.

3.57/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Brown half liter long neck bottle with a swing top and a multi-colored label featuring a king holding a mug of beer and the EU's "Bio" label in the upper left corner. Purity law applies. Best before 10/6/04, I opened it on 4/20/04.

Pours a cloudy pale yellow under a bright white two finger head that shows some body at first, but fizzles too quickly. Not much lace on the glass, either. The nose is lemony sweet, with a hint of coriander. The mouth is light and prickly. The taste starts out lemon sour, with the yeast and wheat kicking in a bit later. There is also a hint of hops lurking somewhere near the finish, but the lasting impression is yeast and malt. Another "certainly not great" but perfectly quaffable beer.

500 mL brown bottle, capped, "best by" date stamped on back label (07-07-04).

This hefeweizen poured a hazy, yellow color with huge(!), towering, pillowy white foam that persisted and clung to the glass in clumps. There was a good carbonation/fizz. The smell was lemon and citrus with some wheat and cloves and a hint of banana. The taste was sharp and citrusy with very light banana and clove and a faint hint of cinnamon. There was a light hoppiness in the finish. The mouthfeel was tart and a bit sour and tangy with medium light body and good carbonation. This was a light, refreshing beer, but a bit thin on body and flavor. Also, it could have been an American Wheat Ale instead of a German Hefeweizen.

Thanks to PatandDavid for this one.
