11.2 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A nice cloudy appearance, lighter lemony-yellow color, and a dense rocky white head. Lots of bubbles.

Smell: Banana, clove, skunk, and lemon. Good and balanced.

Taste: Good balance of the above: banana, clove, no skunk this time, some citrus, and the slightest hint of bubblegum.

Mouthfeel: A nice medium-bodied creaminess going on here.

Drinkability: A highly drinkable Hefe from a pretty spot-on brewery, if that's not too beneath them to say. A lot of flavor and balance and something that can be consumed easily and often.

Bottle: Poured a hazy light dirty yellow color weizen with a large white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of banana bread with light cloves and some light bubblegum notes. Taste is also dominated by banana bread notes with some light cloves notes and subtle bubblegum ester. Body is full with great carbonation. Vey refreshing notes with great esters.

Pours a deep golden, slightly cloudy in my Schneiderweiss glass.

Aroma is wheart/grainy, slightly grassy, and with a slight citrus note. Flavors follow through on the aroma, although they are much more intense- espacially the citrus. A nice sharp hop follow through on the back end. Overall simple in terms of relative complexity, but instead it is very fresh clean, crisp and clear. And in my humble opinion, that's what this should be.

Mouthfeel is nice and full, without being rich or heavy. On a warm day, this is quite pleasant as a thirst quencher. I like it!

Hofbrauhaus Newport,KY. (Cincinnati, OH.)
Medium cloudy yellow color. Foamy rich white head. Nicel lacing down the glass. Lots of clove and sweet sugar yeasty weissbier smells. Loads of bananas and herbs. Pretty spot on flavors, freshness is evident, nice yeasty richness, and crisp herbal finish. Very good weissbeir. Crisp, light to medium bodied, plenty of tangy sweetness. I would really like to pair this with some potato pancakes or something else thick and heavy. A good example of the style.
