Poured from a bottle into a squat weizen glass.
A- Thick dense off-white head that only slowly dissipates to a quarter-inch lacing. Golden hay color tinged with orange.
S- upfront apple and citrus aromas, some grapefruit, but barely perceptible. After awhile an earthy aroma can be sensed and the distinct character of the German yeast.
T-well balanced beer. golden malt taste with enough hops to clear palette. It's got pep to it. Less cloying than other Oktobers. A little raisin and mild citrus.
M-A little bite of carbonation upfront, but good tongue coating - balanced.
O- Very enjoyable and drinkable beer. I little lighter than I was expecting from one of my favorite styles, especially as compared to Ayinger. I didn't notice the bubblegum and clove flavors that of typically German Weissbier, but I was not disappointed. A good find and enjoyable fall beer. Break it out for the cold weekend brunches of early fall.

A - Orangy with white head, light laces
S - citrusy, light malt
T - lightly sweet, no bitterness but dry finish, lighter than other marzens
M - crisp, refreshing, light to medium body
O - enjoyable weissbrau, but stretching the marzen label

Poured in a 16 oz pint glass at The Pourhouse, Westmont, NJ

Well, I think the B- average is about right. Nothing in this beer that makes me cringe, but not a lot to put it above other beers of the same type. It is definitely easier to drink than a lot of wheat beers that can be too syrupy and leave your mouth feeling coated in glue, so credit for that. Otherwise, not a must have but good to try.

What do you know an Oktoberfest Weissbier.
Sure looks like a weissbier. Huge full head - yellow/gold slightly cloudy body.
Soft wheat and pale malt. Slight fruit and a bit of tart.
After a brush with sweet malt then bread, then fruit, a touch of hops and a pretty prominent drying. Quite complex for an easy drinking beer and with emphasis on hops. I swirled in the yeast and now get a shot of that too.
Moderate body, esp. for style.
This is a nice beer. I'm enjoying it.

Pours a hazy bright golden body with a thick white head. Leaves some lacing and retains well enough.

A little surprising with a sweet citric fruit note sitting atop the usual hefe characteristics.

Wheat and lots of that tangerine like character. Don't really know what is Oktoberfest like about what is going on here, but it is enjoyable.

Lots of bubble scrubbing action going on. Crisp and medium bodied.

I'd drink this over their regular hefe.
