50 cl bottle (bb 04-2015) into a weizen. Hazy deep golden color, three finger white foam head that settled down pretty quickly, very little lacing, constant bubbling. Wheat and banana on the nose. Sweet first taste is followed by a taste of tart wheat with some spice and a note of banana. Dry, wheaty and a little watery aftertaste that lasts for some time. Fresh taste. Medium mouthfeel, stingy carbonation, a little bit more carbonated than the weizens i've had. Overall a good, light, weizen with some taste in it. Would suit a hot day very well, even though i've had better.

500ml bottle served in a Weizen glass.

A: Pour a nice orange hazy color forming a traditional big and creamy weissbier white head. Good retention and lots of lacings formed and left in the glass

S: Sweet and fruity. Strong notes of sweet malts and wheat. Traditional notes of banana esters and clove. Bready and a bit earthy. Very light notes of flowery hops

T: Slightly sweet start. Notes of sweet malts, wheat, banana and clove. Very bready taste. Maybe a bit too mild taste of malts

M: Very smooth and creamy nevertheless, light body. Medium carbonation. Bready aftertaste

O: Great drinkability. Easydrinking as a German Weissbier has to be. Practically no bitterness (as expected). Good

Best by March 2014

Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow color with a huge white bubbly head, fades at a decent rate but takes awhile because of the amount, oddly no lacing whatsoever though.

Smell has a bit of a weird yeasty funk to it, slight hint of grassiness and clove.

Taste is definitely heavy handed on the yeast front with a bit of an off flavor, reminds me of drinking an unfiltered wheat beer but that every sip is part of the dregs, clove adds some spiciness to the mix to help distract, carbonation is medium-high but closer to the medium range, finishes quite dry.

500ml bottle. Weizen glass. Bright brass color, foggy appearance. Close, sticky, lasting, white in color crown. Intense banana, fresh yeast & bread aromas. Crispy upfront, malty & biscuit flavors. Light to medium body. Moderate but lively carbonation. Unctuous mouthfeel. Bread, banana flavors, spiced hues & phenolic touch. Low bitterness & subtle spicy notes. Long sweet finish & fruity aftertaste. Delicious & refreshing!!

A - Deep orange colour with a small bit of lacing on top.

S - Wheat, bread and a hint of cloves.

T - A more intense white beer. Strong, yeasty with clove flavour coming through but balanced with sweetness.

M - Pretty watery with a slight fizz. Decent but nothing special here.

O - More interesting that the normal Erdinger and most White beers out there. A great beer but perhaps not reaching the same heights as other beers ive tried.
