I agree with many people who mentioned that this beer is under-rated. I think it does a good job of representing the beer style and is quite pleasurable to drink

A - I cannot rate according to appearance as I was not able (travelling) to pour this beer into a glass.

S - The smell is inviting, but similar to the taste, it is quite mild of banana and clove. Estery.

T - Plenty of banana and clove. A good peppery kick at the end of the sip. Left a slightly bready and bubble-gum aftertaste in the mouth. I personally found it to be moderately above average.

M - Crisp and dry... Plenty of carbonation. Bubbly and almost, (but not quite), spritzy. Slightly watery.

O - I would recommend this beer to anyone new to hefeweizens as it drinks crisp and smooth and isn't a palate wrecker. The flavors aren't too strong or overpowering. Very sessionable. May pick up a couple bottles next summer for when it gets hot out again... In my opinion, this beer is worthy of a rating between 3.75 and 4.0.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a good head that holds well. With some lacing. Colour is cloudy cold pale amber
Smell - not much really.
Mild but pleasant 'weizen' taste, with loads of fine carbonation combined with a creamy mouthfeel. All mild: Fruity Bannana Bubblegum.
Afterwards I feel a bit dissatisfied though...

The 500ml bottle I got says "In der Flasche gereift" (Bottle conditioned).
BB - 05 2013

500 ml bottle into signature weizen glass, best before 3/2013. Pours hazy golden amber color with a nice 2-3 finger fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of orange zest, banana, pepper, clove, apricot, wheat, earth, and yeast spiciness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance. Taste of banana, pear, wheat, pepper, clove, earth, bread, and yeast spiciness. Lingering notes of wheat, pepper, pear, banana, clove, earth, and yeast spices on the finish for a short bit. Flavors are well balanced with decent complexity; a bit on the watery side, but good. High carbonation and light-medium body; with a lightly creamy and very crisp and prickly mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a good Hefeweizen. A bit watery, but the flavors are nicely balanced; and this is extremely easy and refreshing to drink. I did enjoy it.
