From Decervecitas. In Bavaria hefe glass. After dinner. Darker than usual, with a thick bready body that feels fairly pleasant. Banana flavors are there but a bit subdued. 1 month before bbf date. Very foamy.

Murky dark orange color with off-white head. Aroma has sweet, slightly caramelized malt and some banana. Taste is also on the sweet side with nice wheat notes and some yeast. Medium to full bodied with medium carbonation. Quite good weizen, leaning towards the dunkelweizen style with its slightly toasted notes.

This one is closer to a dunkelweizen in color and flavor. Flavor is slightly sour, more like a rye bread/pumpernickel. Oily mouthfeel. I could easily mistake this for a roggen weizen.

From the half liter bottle, it pours a hazy amber with a nice large head (as one would expect from a Bavarian Wheat beer. Scent is as one would expect: banana clove and yeast. The taste is a bit different from other Weisses - a bit of bread with bananas, but with the darker malts coming through. Feel is nice as well. Yum!

It is copper. It is cloudy. It has some visible carbonation. It is topped with 5 fingers of whitish fluffy head.

It smells of deep rich bread quality. It smells of bubblegum and slight coriander. It smells of some lemon squeeze.

It tastes of bubblegum, coriander, a sort of plastic phenolic quality, bread, and bread.

It has the feel of medium body, little carbonation and sticks to the tongue.

It overall is a decent hefeweizen, but it is not outstanding. It was purchased and drank in Chiang Mai. It was drunk on Sept 28th, 2015.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #87 (Apr 2014):

Yeast, Bread, Grass, Clove

A different take on the contemporary version of the Hefeweizen, they brewery focuses on a generous amount of specialty malts. The clove, banana taffy and dry breadiness are all present with a wrapping of subtle caramel. A great switch from the norm.
