Pours a cloudy amber-golden color with a huge, bubbly head.

Smells of dough, rustic white bread and a peppery clove note. Got some faint banana underneath, mingling into the malts while maintaining a refreshing unripe quality.

Drinks very soft, while the beer packs a lively, bubbly carbonation, which stays balanced till the end, offering a light bodied, truly refreshing beer.

Tastes of a pleasant, thirst quenching yeast sourness, immediately balanced by rich straw, toffee and a soft, herbal spice quality. Got a well pronounced sweetness during the mid palate, reminding me of high quality honey, perfectly blending into the refreshing, slightly dry finish, defined by a lively carbonation.

Perfect example for a very tasty Weisse, exhibiting a great flavor interplay and intensity, focussed on its awesome refreshing quality.

11/29...pours bright gold, a bit under a 1/4 inch white foam that layers the top. Wheaty banana nose. Taste is a citrus infused wheat, light tart, crisp clean finish. Smooth. Modestly carbonated mouthfeel. Consistent.

Poured from a brown 16.9 oz. bottle. Has a cloudy golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, a touch of banana. Taste is green apples, some banana, a bit of wheat and also somewhat unusual for the style. Feels medium bodied in the mouth mouth and overall an ok beer, but I am feeling left a little disappointed.

Swing top bottle.
Hazy apricot amber body with a decent head.
Body is a bit thin even for style and despite adequate carbonation.
Light flavor from both the yeast and the malt components. Balance leans a bit more towards the malts than the yeast. Highlight: the nice nutty finish and aftertaste, with a hint of hazelnut.

1pt .9 fl oz brown bottle with flip top

Kaiser Brau Veldensteiner WeiBbier changed the color of my clear weizen glass to a cloudy "dirty" gold color producing a 1 1/2 finger white head that held well. Streaks and spots of lacing remained as I consumed the ale. The light nose was dominated by a mild banana and orange citrus aroma. The taste was similar to the smell with a slight clove spice in the background. The finish was a little dry and crisp with a lighter mouth feel for a hefeweizen.
Overall, Veldensteiner WeiBbier is an easy drinking hefe due to its lighter less rich flavor
.
There are more flavorful [German] hefes available.

A - Huge foamy white head with great retention and lace. Light haze on a golden straw body.

S - Green banana, strange acrylic twang, sweet wheat.

T - Lightly sour, thick wheat, lemon highlights. Green vegetable aftertaste.

M - Light frame with an almost syrupy finish.
