For the style it's probably a perfect score. It's my favorite hefe-weizen beer i've ever tasted and it's probably not even close. Despite not being a big fan of the style i'll always try a beer i've never had, in this case i'm glad i did.

Bottle poured into Corsedonk Christmas glass. Poured a hazy golden orange. Limited head and limited lacing. Banana, bread, orange in the aroma, rather weak. Taste follows the nose, very sweet but enjoyable if you like sweet. Carbonation is a bit much, medium mouthfeel but not creamy due to carbonation. Overall this is not a bad hefe, not a great one but I did enjoy it very much. Of course, I had it right after exercise so that may have helped.

S - banana, clove, citrus
T - same as the smell but the banana is really strong
F - a little more carbonated than what I like for a hefe but still pretty smooth
O - this is an ok hefe. There's just so many other here's out there to drink that are better

Poured into a Weizen glass.

Appearance : Pours a tall, fluffy 4 finger head and stays stable at 3 fingers. Lacing is left in pillars on the sides of the glass. The body is mostly transparent, with only a 5% haze, and is pale golden straw colored.

Smell : Cinnamon, banana, egg whites, orange, and orange muffin. Could be stronger as it's a fairly weak beer to nose.

Taste : Something is off, here. Fruit but the fruit is rotten. A slight musty damp straw flavor, mixed with sticks of bubble gum. Finale is mushy/black banana, stale cigarette.

Feel : Unsubstantial. Light bodied, only partially creamy, and ends with a faint dry bite. All of this is subdued and leans more on the side of water than beer.

Overall : It has not taken long for me to develop an opinion of this beer. A substandard Hefeweizen with almost no redeeming qualities. Tastes like a big fat NOPE.

3.34/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: A massive, dense white head presents atop a hazy, egg-yolk yellow body. Thin, broken lacing adorns the glass walls. There is a bit of sediment on rousing the bottle for the final pour. The carbonation is slight and slow-rising.

Aroma: Dense wheat dominates the aroma, although there is ripe understated banana and citrus rind. Persistent sampling of the aroma yields some faint cloves and vanilla.

Taste: Begins with prominent spicy wheat, soon followed by faint hints of ripe bananas. Later in the taste, a little clove flavor presents. Late in the taste, there are hints of dark caramel. Finishes with a lingering, mild toastiness, and a hint of sweetness. There is a flourish of grassy hops at the close.

Mouth feel: Soft, pleasant, and full.

Drinkability/notes: Nice enough, its a hard style to compete in, with the likes of Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier, but its not bad at all.

Presentation: Packaged in a Euro-style 330 ml (eleven point two ounce) brown glass longneck bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

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

Appearance: almost crystal clear light gold. Nice rocky white head.

Aroma/Flavor: Caramel apple, and some clove... More banana comes through on the palate. But still way way too much caramel flavor. Incredible how they managed to pack it in to a beer so light. That's not a good thing.

Mouthfeel: Medium+ body, again, residual sugar bomb.

Brauerei Max Leibinger "Seeweisse"
11.2 oz. brown glass bottle, "Best Before End: 004 L 41 FL."
$1.99 @ Total Wine & More #901, Tampa, FL

Interesting beer. It has all of the attributes of a standard Bavarian hefeweizen, but there's also an unusual piney note, as well as a unique fruitiness that includes orange/tangerine, lemon, apple, mild banana and something a bit more tropical that I can't quite put my finger on. The malt has a doughy sweetness to it, readily balanced by the slightly tart side. It's accessible, charming, and unique.
