“Alt”? Slight darkness in having some Munich-y malts, but otherwise just a straight weiss. No wheat creaminess, though. Interesting, just too light. 3.75

Dark orange, a lot of fine foam, creamy.
A lot of cloves at the nose, with a bit of medicinal/band-aid. Malt.
Some malt and a light biscuit in the taste, wheat, less medicinal notes, and a sweetness, maybe a bit too strong, in the aftertaste.
Cloves again.
Not a very high drinkability.

500ml bottle. MHBE:08/11.

It pours a hazy brown with a frothy tan head that leaves some nice lacing as it recedes.

The smell is a combination of caramels, brownies, bananas, bread, and fruit. There is a sharp, perfumey, fruit character that really stings the nostrils if you take a good whiff.

The flavor is super lemony, with a hint of wheat bread. The mouthfeel is pretty highly carbonated and thinner than the norm, but it is refreshing as all hell.

If you like tart, refreshing wheat beers on a hot summer day in Bavarian this one isn't bad.
