From 500ml bottle into a weizen glass.
L: Cloudy, dark apricot colour. Lots of carbonation rising to three fingers of off-white, soapy head. Head becomes lumpy pretty quickly but leaves arcs of lacing.
S: Not much nose. Some banana and bubblegum. No clove.
T: Classic weizen flavours are subdued. Some sweetness.
F: Silky mouthfeel up front. Becomes dry. Moderate to high carbonation. Slightly harsh finish.
O: A little underwhelmed. Not a bad hefeweizen but not top notch either. Looks great but smell and taste both lack punch.

A decent Bavarian Weizen. Has the traditional aroma and for the most part the flavors although with the texture being a bit soft, the flavor's affected by that too.

Past its best by date but still lacked in every department. The quick exiting head and coarse carbonation scratchiness detracted from this one. Maybe fresh, maybe in Germany this one may be better.
