look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Best before end 2/18/16.

Pours a murky light orange-brown with a foamy tan head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Tiny particles of sediment sink to the bottom of the glass after the pour. Smell is of wheat, yeast, spice, caramel, and dried banana aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel, spice, and slight banana bread flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with solid aromas and flavors for the style.

Serving type: bottle.

I purchased a bottle of Jacob Weissbier for $0.99 USD in the Highland Park neighborhood of Los Angeles/CA/USA.

Look: Jacob Weissbier had no foam.
Smell: Jacob Weissbier had the aroma of beets, metal, and wheat.
Taste: Jacob Weissbier tasted like beets mixed with sugar and water.
Feel: Jacob Weissbier had average carbonation.
Overall: People who seek the taste of beets and sugar will enjoy Jacob Weissbier.

This is a damn fine Hefeweizen, on par with the world's greatest. Drank it recently after the Weihenstephan, and this one fresh is hard to beat. Bravo.
