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.

Bought a 500ml bottle from one of the discount food stores in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong selling mainly imported European, Japanese and Korean products for HKD18. Poured into a wheatbeer glass.

Poured a cloudy orange/light brown with a couple of inches of tight to medium head that lasted well. Not much lacing. Looks well carbonated with streams of bubbles rising to the top of the glass.

The nose was a little bit disappointing; some orange, honey, very light spice and a weird plasticky/rubbery aroma.

Well-rounded malts, some fruit and a small amount of spice but the palate is a little bland for the style. No real bitterness.

Mouth feels nice. Carbonation is very light, despite looking otherwise.

Overall I was slightly disappointed with Krombacher. I've drank quite a few german beers in the hefewiezen style and this one didn't match up. Compared to Franziskaner, Weihenstephan et al it's rather bland and the nose is a little off-putting.

Not recommended.

Slightly veiled dark golden color with high activity. Foamy white 2 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with average legs.

Aromas of citrus and wheat. Flavors of grains, orange, lemon, banana, corn, caramel. A little bready with highly syrupy sweetness and minimal sharpness. Light bodied with a faint straw finish and minimal spices.

Overall an average beer having faint smell and flavors with an adjunct and unbalanced feel. Passable freshness being a little boozy and vinous.

Some banana and a light spiciness.
Light flavor for style.
