This may be my current favorite beer. If you love hefeweizens like I do you owe it to yourself to try this one. It's not hoppy or too citrusy. It has that great wheat taste with a warm caramel note. Mine came in a cool glass too.

Had on-tap in Berlin, poured into a tall weiss glass.

L: Pours a cloudy amber with a thick creamy white head that was slow to fall and left generous lacing.

S: Wheat and grains. Complex spicy yeast with bananas, cloves, and coriander.

T/F: Mild weiss with nice flavors. Bananas and wheat, slightly spicy. Decent carbonation and mouthfeel.

O: Very solid and drinkable German Weiss. Great for a hot day or with a meal.

Really nice cloudy dark amber colour pouring with a perfect head and having just the right carbonation.
If smells a bit fruity (bananas especially) and feels like a good weizen beer, with hints of cloves and bananas.
A very good weissbier.

Typical German Hef. If brewed to style, they're all pretty much the same.

A bit darker than your usual wessbier. Abundant froth as typical of the style. The nose is very distinct: spicy and bready with a dominant "olive" note. Not very complex though and I am not immediately getting the banana and bubblegum. The taste follows on these notes with a dominant bread taste. Very fizzy, as expected. Nothing exceptional but not bad either.
