Poured into a weizen glass, the appearance was a muddled burnt dark orange color with a two finger white foamy head that dissipated pretty quick. But there’s no lacing. The aroma had some of the normal qualities of a hefeweizen (some clove, banana esters, sweet wheat) and then some red delicious apples. The flavor brought the hefeweizen qualities inward sweetly and letting the clove slide further to the background. Some sharp phenols hit slyly. But normal hefeweizen aftertaste touching the finish crisply. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a great sessionability about it. Carbonation feels good, some prickliness. Overall, "if it fits, it ships," thanks Erdinger for sending across the pond. I could drink this again.

rom 2d2despuma. In Bavaria glass. Playing South Park Stick of Truth. The typical banana-clove of a hefe are replaced here with some dusty yet pleasant dry spicyness. A bit more foamy than desiderable

500ml bottle into a tall weizen glass. Paid £2.70 for a single bottle.

Pours a slightly hazy, light golden-orange coloured body with masses of swift, visible, streaming carbonation. A three-finger in height, foamy, white head slowly reduces to a dense cap, leaving small amounts of spotty, soapy lace.

The subdued nose leads primarily with notes of lightly bready malted wheat. Traces of faintly fruity yeast are noticeable in the background, along with a larger amount of grassy hop bitterness. Taste follows suit in much the same way. Simple, tangy malted wheat leads upfront, fading just slightly towards the mid-palate to reveal a vague and subtle generic fruitiness. In the mouth, fine, lively carbonation and a medium to full body give a smooth and creamy feel. Towards the end, grassy hop profiles build, culminating in a dry, moderate bitterness that lingers on the palate finishing clean, crisp and dry.

Overall this is a very average beer. It’s bright, clean, easy drinking and refreshing, but the yeast esters and phenols that characterize the style are barely perceptible and an out of place grassy bitterness dominates the finish, detracting from drinking pleasure. I can’t say I’d happily part with my own money to try it again.

Hazy orange color with white, frothy head. Aroma has malt, overripe orange and a bit of alcohol. Taste isn't very intense, just some wheat and yeast notes. Body is medium and highly effervescent. Not bad but not my favorite approach on the style.

From the 25 fl. oz bottle with an expiration date of 08-2016. Sampled on December 12, 2015.

The pour is yellow and heady.

Lots of toasted biscuit and bread on the nose as well as a slight grassy hop character. It reminds of most any other German brewed beer.

Light to medium body.

The taste has a decent toasty character with a mild sweetness and grassy hop finish. A pretty straight forward German brew and I am not sure why this is any different.

Deep hazy gold colour, with a faint malty nose and spicy hops. Mostly malty and a little spicy. Not much to it but good.

Taken from notes, March 13th of 2014.

A: The body is semi-opaque with a yellow and orange-y colour. Plus, the head is almost nonexistent with no lacing nor retention.
S: The aroma is filled with a bready presence surrounded beautifully by strong malts.
T: The taste profile has its bready presence again, now with some citrus coming over - namely lemon, and some caramel that goes on very well.
M: There's a normal hop profile for a winterbier with some sweetness attached to it.
O: Nothing special but good enough to have next year.

Very good hefeweizen. Smells like banana, bubblegum, clove, sweet fruits. Tastes citrusy, banana hints, alcoholic, bitterness is mild and friendly. Overall a nice german hefe.
