Overall a fairly average example of the Hefe Weizen style. Of course, I'll give compliments to Pivovar Nachod for venturing into relatively exotic territory in a country dominated by the big P. The color was pleasantly cloudy and tan, verging on golden. Its smell reminded me of pleasant Bavarian summer days and my first impressions were quite good from this offering. The taste, however was something to be improved upon. While I normally expect a fairly thick, but clear mouthfeel from the Hefe Weizen style, this beer felt almost like a watered down example of this. The taste itself was not bad in any way, but not particularly stellar either - a slight hop character mixed with heavy carbonation and a very minimal wheatiness. Still something that I'd occasionally go back to, but not one that I was overly and positively impacted by.

Drank from my Weihestephaner weizen glass.

A - Pours a hazy Golden Orange colour with a two fingered head that reduces to a film and laces.

S - Not much on the nose except some sticky citrus.

T - Nice banana flavoutr and finishes witha sticky sweet citrus flavour.

M - Light to medium body and carbomnantion, true to the style.

D - I like this beer, but not over the major German varieties

Hazy pale yellow golden color with apparent carbonation and a huge thick head with great retention and leaving some laces.
Aroma with notes of banana, chalked yeast, oranges and cloves.
Flavor with notes of orange citrus, banana, cloves, bread malt, one drop of lemon, mild ginger, yeast and finishing with floral hops.
Quite light body with appropriate carbonation.
It refreshes above average and it is less cloying given assertiveness, lighter body and very weak bubblegum. To drink liters of it. Though it didn’t swept off my feet.

A czech Hefe is a cool idea and this is a nice take on the style. Lighter than most German versions but with a creamy smooth mouthfeel this is well made. The nose is not very prominent but the taste has the right banana and clove combination. I have had English style ales and mead like ales from Czech lately so I invite other styles than pils showing up on the shelf.

An impressive beer. Pours a gold cloudy color with orange subcolors. Carbonation is really good, stays fizzy all the way, and leaves a milky white, lacy head that stays with the beer. Smell is of fresh grain, perhaps slight citrus flavors. Taste is not amazingly complex, but it is bold and wheaty, tingling the tongue with hoppy flavors. Though Wiessbier is not my favorite style, this is one of the best of it's kind that I have had.
