look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

clear yellow before I swirled the bottle and poured the yeast, then a cloudy dark yellow color with a thin white head

smells like bubble gum in the bottle, then sweet bread and spices once in the glass

taste is nicely balanced with spice up front, then sweet banana bread, bubblegum and finishes smokey.

mouth feel is crispy with a creamy, wet finish

overall, this is really good. I will look for it again

Always a place in my heart for my First Beer. Unfortunately, this being my first beer, I have a very hard time with Hefeweizens now (as most people have with Jack Daniels or Jäger, or anything they drank to excess in their youth). The pour was always perfect, great head retention. Amazing light gold color. Overall, almost 'too easy' to drink, flavorful beer. A beer that you and your friends will drink all of, forcing you to resort to Tucher to finish off the night.

Poured from a 500mL bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a transparent light red with a nice white head that disappears all too quickly. Smells of wheat with hints of light fruit. Tastes of wheat and lots of fruit, with hints of banana and orange. Beer is light bodied and carbonated right with a good finish. Overall, a very good beer.

Lots of head as expected for a weisse bier. Different colour, darker than usual, hazy cooperish tone. Predominantly banana aroma. Taste follows the aroma adding some cloves to it, and clear yeast. Starts zesty with some bitterness, and ends (very late) a little dry. Very refreshing.
