This is not a Weizenbier, just of joke version of it. Try a Franziskaner or a Weihstephaner, don't buy this one.

A Weizen i haven't tried meant shelling out some serious coin for a six pack...yikes

Certainly looks legit..apricot colour, cloudy, etc.

Hints of banana and clove..and that distinctive sweet Krombacher malt

sadly the aforementioned malt tends to dominate things..the weizen elements fight a losing battle here

Fuller body than most German examples, perhaps due to the syrupy sweetness that dominates things

Certainly not worth the price I paid...pass next time

Looks like a typical Weizen: dark golden/light orange with a nice head of foam. Not a lot of carb visible on the outside. A nice Weizen nose of clove, which continues in the taste. The taste also has a little sourness (lemon?) in it, and the sweeter fruits like banana i tend to associate with Weizeners appear to be lacking completely. The mouth feel is smooth like a Weizen should be. All in all a good Weizen, but i prefer ones with more accents of fruit in them.
