Not a great German wheat but I honestly don't know whether the bottle I sampled was very fresh or not. A little darker than most wheats but not as dark as Schneider Weisse. Nice fluffy head and looks great but the flavor was lacking. A little sweeter for a Weizen and doesn't posess the clove/wheat flavors I've grown to expect. I actually tried this in downtown Munich a few years ago but don't remember it because I drank so many others while there. I'm sure it would be better on draught.

L- Golden
S- Wheaty, light, vanilla
T + F - Wheaty, very bready, jerky like after taste
O - Light and Breezy brew

I find that I'm not much of a whet guy though so my review reflects that more-so.

Poured from a 500 ml. bottle. Left a big classic h-w head that had excellent retention, but not too much lacing. Body was a cloudy light gold. Looked really good, especially the one finger layer of foam that lasted to the end.

Smell - mostly spicy and herbal hops. A hint of cloves, a hint of plum. Aroma strongly suggested a Pils, and the classic h-w scents were rather faint.

Taste - spicy, herbally hops, crispy lemon, especially on the finish.
Weak wheat and malt did not show up much in the aroma, and not in the taste either. Was not very tasty as an h-w, nor as a beer of any sort.

Mouthfeel - medium bodied, slightly fizzy, and surprisingly semi-dry.

Drinkability - this was not bad, just not good. It looked great, but taste was rather weak, with a non h-w-like hop thing going on, which would have been okay if there was some wheat and malt counterbalance. I'd only have this only once in a great while.
