Ramstein Blonde Wheat BeerRamstein Blonde Wheat Beer
Notes: Our fresh traditional German-style weiss beer. Malty wheat bouquet brimming with clove and banana aromas. Wheat and barley balance with imported German Noble hops. Unfiltered for a natural flavor. The finish is malty, smooth and refreshing.

Poured a quite muddy orange-gold, with plenty of carbonation but not as much as, say, a Weihenstephaner. It does explode as you sit the glass down after a sip. Good lace, solid rocky head.

Had a somewhat quiet nose of banana and white grapes/green apple, a thin sugary element to these. Also cinammon and cloves with a swirl and a little warming. Tasted a little sweet spicy like nutmeg & cloves, backed by a biscuit background - in sum, though, a very light tasting beer. Middle was a creamy lactic flavor with lemon zing. Interesting yeast, it helped make a nice and soft spicy & bready burp.Had a short finish that ended with quite a clay bitter. I had to go back for more quickly after it left my palate.

Even still, very refreshing – have one before you eat your dinner. Very easy to drink, though in general it tasted of an okay wheat and malt; tasted a little immature and not all developed. Very shy to show itself. Maybe my bottles were getting past their due date, or maybe its because I've drank a fair share of Weihenstephaner and Brooklyner Weisse, but this wasn't all that impressive, just a solid good (and relatively cheap).

This hazy, medium amber beer is topped by a dense, white head that displays very good retention. The aroma is banana and that wonderful yeasty, bread aroma with a hint of cloves. Just an exceptional smelling beer. The taste is heavenly, with banana and clove covering the crisp wheat flavors, all wrapped up by the fresh bread flavors. The mouthfeel is very robust, yet with a crispness to it as well. The drinkability is very good as well. This is truly an exceptional beer that makes me long for summer. I plan to reserve one of these for a summer wheat beer tasting. Thanks to joehops for this great beer. I almost wish I hadn't given a couple of friends some of these beers, as I want them all for myself! This has been worth the wait for a Ramstein beer.

Cloudy golden and blonde color. Nice thick and creamy head. Banana and clove aromas carry along a yeasty scent. High malt profile, chewy texture. Medium bodied but definitely present. Overall a great beer. All hefeweizen fans should add this one to the regiment.

This is the best American hefe I have had. Layered head which sticks around, dark golden brew, mellow malt nose. This beer is vibrantly tasty, with some very assertive malt notes, an intense spritziness, and perfect balance with the hops which are also pretty assertive. The yeast gives it a real breadiness and boldness and the wheat wraps it all up in a thirst-quenching package. I definitely got the sour green apple flavor and there are some hard water qualities, I thought. Very in-your-face and very satisfying.
