Poured from bottle into a sample glass.

Appearance: Cloudy yellowish color with a decent size white head.

Smell: Wheat, maybe some hints of banana, not really a strong smell.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Medium to light bodied and smooth. Taste was average, what you would expect from a mid range hefenweizen.

Overall: Not a bad beer, but nothing spectacular. I guess I would have it again, it is easy to drink.

Bottle: standard 500mL brown bottle, standard German wheat beer macro label.

Appearance: pours hazy light straw, per the hefeweizen standard. Great thick and foamy head.

Aroma: the typical wheat beer aromas are here, but also backed by a bit of alcohol. Not super sophisticated, but good enough.

Taste: not massively flavoursome, but again has those great wheat beer flavours of banana and cloves. The slightly lighter flavour creates easier drinkability, so that's fine by me.

Aftertaste: the flavours become almost dusty, like a heavy malt profile. Quite nice, actually, and something I haven't come across in a wheat beer previously.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied with light-to-moderate carbonation. This is one of the lighter and easier-drinking wheat beers I have had - without delving into the unsavoury world of the Krystalweizen.

Overall: a good quality wheat beer. Not as sophisticated as some others, but a great intermediate and sessional hefeweizen.

Pale, hazy golden with a durable white head and lots of lacing.

The aroma features very bready malt and light yeast with just a touch of fruitiness. The flavor is like the aroma but a bit more yeasty.

M: medium+ carbonation; thin body but not quite watery.

O: a very pleasant, mild and easy to drink Weissbier that was better than expected.

(Revisited with s bottle in August 2015).
