Pours a light, cloudy golden yellow, with thick fluffy head. Very active, fine carbonation Aroma of bananas, cotton candy, white bread. Taste is very subdued, and overall mouth feel is slick and watery. Taste is normal weizen, but much lighter. The name Weisser means white, and this is a very light hefeweizen.

Hazy yellow color with white head. Aroma has the specific weissbier yeast esters, fruity with pregnant banana. Taste is a bit acidic, yeasty and slightly sweet. Body is light and very effervescent. Not bad but it's not one of the best examples of the style.

Last unit available in supercor. In Paulaner glass. Killing time until my childrens sleep time. Really good innits style. Big body and nice taste and aroma. Ive even liked it more than the weihenstephaner.

Golden haze colour.
Smells sweet and yeasty.
Tastes like cloves, bread with orange peel.
Feels a bit watery, too carbonated for my liking.
Overall enjoyable but wouldn't rate it that high as a Hefeweizen beer. The mouth feel alone does put me off quite a bit.

500ml bottle. Weizen glass. Golden color, chill haze appearance. Discrete, close, white froth.Intense banana & bread aromas, hints of DMS & estery notes on the backside. Sweet malty & slight floral bitter upfront. Medium body. Moderate to high carbonation. Dense to watery texture & dried mouthfeel. In the middle, low bitterness is overwhelmed by sweetness & lingers into a dry biscuit malt finish. Acidic touch in an estery aftertaste.
