Appearance: Hazy yellow-gold, huge head.

Smell: Apple pie, then sweet with cloves.

Taste: Lemony, bready, a little spicy. Kind of a sour note.

Overall: Beer #3 from the sampler. All the beers were over 12 months old, I'm reviewing anyway as 95% of the German imports here are at least that old. This one is the first that the age may have gotten the better of it. Smelled great, tasted like their standard hefe but with a sour note.

Pours a giant white, spongy head with a murky amber color to it.

Smells of an interesting mix, featuring ripe banana, dried leaves and a spicy clove note. Dough bread underneath with a whiff of tart sourness to it.

Every ingredient in this aims for the most possible refreshment and is perfectly in tune with the other flavors. Amped up by a vivid, soft carbonation, a pleasant complexity shines through at all times, providing a smooth mouthfeel.

Tastes of dried citrus peel, grass, white bread and a gentle yeast softness, which ties everything in this together. A stony mineral quality comes up after the swallow, accompanied by sugared yeast dough, transforming into wheat, wild honey and well water.

Very clean on the tongue, truly refreshing and well balanced. An easy drinkery which is perfect for the warmer days, being able to produce a depth of flavors within its yeast softness which makes this truly great.

Serving Type: 500 mL Bottle served in a Erdinger Weissbier glass

A- Pours a hazy burnt orange with a gigantic fluffy cream white head that has incredible retention. Died down to a 1/2 finger after 2 or 3 minutes and stayed that way long enough for me to finish the beer without it going away. Thick lacing.

S- Banana, bubblegum, cloves, and a hint of citrus.

T- Much like the aroma: Banana, cloves, Bubblegum, and orange peel (as opposed to the fruit in the smell). Orange rind like bitterness on the finish.

M- Medium body and moderate-high carbonation. Slightly oily mouthfeel.

O- Pretty good Hefeweizen, although not as good as the standard Erdinger (in my opinion). Flavour doesn't exactly hold up as the beer warms.
