Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Cloudy yellow with a white head and decent lacing. Slightly sweet smell and a bit grassy. The taste is good but a bit dry . A hint of lemon.

Appearance: Hazy yellow, good head.

Smell: Lemony, hint of clove, wheat.

Taste: Crisp lemon, underlying sweetness and banana note.

Overall: Beer #1 from a Erdinger sampler pack given to me. This is a pretty nice hefeweiss, kind of reminds me of a US pale wheat with the lemon flavors though.

Pours a cloudy yellow with massive foamy head and glue like lacing. Smells of skunk, wheat, zesty citrus, biscuit and banana. Taste follows the nose, very easy to drink beer with good flavors. Light feel all around and easy to drink in the fall with a good fire going, pretty enjoyable.

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass. Small bit remaining left in the bottle to cloud up later.

Nice foamy and frothy rich off white colored head. Boomin size of a good fist but controlls real well, with eggshell cream like apperance. An occasional big swiss cheese bubble gets in there as well. Body color is a glowing dark brass gold honey quality, with excellent fine cola bubble like streams of carbonation rising up as well. Great

Faint clove and nutmeg like phenolic like tones, slightly powdery like in quality. Touches of bakery like mineral soda quality as well but in a real nice refreshing way. Kind of neat, stays away from a chewy wheat presence, or any banana sweet like qualities.

Palate provides a solid experience. Slightly hinting of chewy malt tones, but goes for faint bubblegum and simple sweetness instead. Mild flour like finish, but good amounts of small clove and light banana quality mixing in. Nice mineral like mouthfeel, almost prickly to some extent which is an unexpected surprise.

A pretty solid hefeweizen.

There is a nice golden color, with a nice big off white head and a little lacing left in the special wheat beer glass. Over al a pretty enjoyable beer that is worth a try.

From a 500ml bottle served straight from the fridge at 10 degrees Celsius into a weizen glass. Best before date: 04/2018

Look: The beer pours a cloudy gold with 6cm of dense, creamy, white head that dissipates into a solid cap after 3+ minutes. Decent lacing and good overall head.

Smell: Moderate strength with decent balance. Very fruity with clove-like phenols and estery banana. Toasty and wheaty malts.

Taste: Moderate strength and balancing towards sweet. Follows the aroma seamlessly. Banana and cloves with wheat and toast. Faint bubblegum. The finish is quite short, faint, and balancing towards sweet.

Feel: Medium-full body with moderate carbonation. Very creamy and smooth with no apparent alcohol warmth.

Overall: As far as wheat beers go, I think this is a good one. I'm surprised though how little I have to say about it.
