Bottle from Wasana's. Sour smelling weizen. Appearance is lacking, as head dissipates almost instantly. Taste is also off. An embarrassment to Bavaria. Would like to sample this again, possible infected bottle.

500ml Bügelflashe. Mindestens haltbar bis: 05.12.11.

It pours a light hay gold with a bright white head that quickly dissipates with no lacing.

The smell is predominantly banana with some malt coming through ever so slightly.

The flavor follows the scent. Big banana notes in this one. A nice bit of wheat and barley flavors as well. It also has a nice lemon tartness. It is a fruity, sweet, but light hefe-weizen, great for summer weather.

Perusing the German beer at Total Wine and ran across this, big fan of Hefe so figured I would give it a go.

A=Pours a very thick and cloudy orange with a huge fluffy head. Pretty appetizing for any hefeweizen fan, though i wouldn't recommend it as an offering to someone just starting to expand his beer horizons.

S=Typical fare of clove and banana

T=Clove and banana come to the forefront with a spicy taste in the finish

M=a bit thin but nicely carbonated

O=Try it out if you can find it in your local store but don't bend over backwards to trade for it

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.

A classic booming soapy white head makes the grade, slides down the glass and provides some retention, but true to style. Body color hits at unfiltered mix of classic orange glowing yellow, with some light amber hues. Lots of rising carbonation. The body color has a good mix of in between great and uses the brown to it's advantage.

Nose is peanut butter. What is it with the yeast profile on these Furst brews? Peanuts and clean wheat chewy malt. Light clove sense pops in. The peanut sensation on this style feels real good compared to the pilsners, it comes off with that nice chewy wheat malt and compliments nicely. I actually like this angle.

On the palate, yup it's a hefe alright, but seems quite toned down. Most of the flavor profile is accented in the finish, hitting with a real nice lingering burnt clove sense that isn't drastic or hurtful. Body hits at some wet carbonation, but matches it seems with the toned down flavor. Borderline crisp.

Overall it's a muted Hefe, but I strangely miss that peanut taste which I think would make this unique for a hefe. I could have this again though, it's a good German hefe alternative.
