Stiegl is a brew that I'm well acquainted with, having spend the better part of a week in Salzburg back in 2001 and the hostel I stayed at only had Stiegl on tap (I believe it was the weizen but I could be wrong). In any case I was most pleased with the Austrian beer and missed it somewhat on my return to old skippy (Australia).

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a Stiegl Weizen glass.

A: This brew presents as a murky amber with a reasonably large white head. Looks like a good Hefe!

S: Usual Weizen suspects (banana and cloves) turn up but don't really crash the party. There is a musty yeast and fresh mountain water thrown in as well, overall a little lacklustre in the aroma department.

T: The Weisse flavours are there too, though in a diminished capacity; banana, clove, hint of cardamom, yeast, pepper and a hearty grain base in the middle followed by a dry, slightly sour finish. It's an easy one on the buds for a Weizen, however this personally detracts a little from what could be a strong brew.

M: Dense carbonation with a medium but watery (for a wheat beer) body.

D: This is one Weisse that is easy to drink, too easy - needs bolder wheat beer flavours to really stand out. Though it is a decent starter for the beginner Weizen drinker that will one day graduate to Weihenstephaner or Schneider Weisse Tap 7.

Food match: Austrian (as opposed to German) cuisine. Note: I was told to say that by a rather large Austrian body-builder from Graz.

Stiegl Weisse. 5.1%. "100% from Austria"
Served in small glass Stiegl mug at the brewery in Salzburg.

Murky caramel brown with a creamy and durable tan head. The head leaves some lacing.
A. Banana, clove, and bready malt, in that order.
T: About as expected from the nose, except spicier. Rather wheaty.
M: Light body is a bit watery; good carbonation.
O: not a style of beer I usually enjoy much, but this one certainly has an exceptional mouthfeel.

Very dark orange color, hazy as a good Hefeweizen should be. Nice two finger fluffy off white head, good retention and lacing. Huge aromas of banana, coriander, bubble gum, and wheat bread. Flavor was missing that good banana and spice flavor though, but the bready wheat flavor was quite dominant, with just a bit of citrusy lemony tart notes. The mouthfeel was rather thin for a Hefeweizen, but with good carbonation. Overall, pretty good, but not overwhelming.

330ml bottle, another refugee from the 'current' Stiegl Advent calendar that didn't sell so well (that's the understatement of the year).

This beer pours a hazy, medium golden amber colour, with a handful of puffy, finely foamy, and mildly bubbly dirty white head, which leaves some low-lying desert-scape topography lace around the glass as it quickly sinks away.

It smells of bready wheat malt, banana puree, further apple and pear fruity notes, discreetly phenolic yeast, and plain earthy and weedy hop bitters. The taste is grainy, gritty caramel and wheat malt, muddled pome and drupe fruit, sedate yeast, a twinge of mixed table top pepper mill grist and clove spice, and more weak earthy and leafy noble hoppiness.

The bubbles are adequate in their plain and supportive frothiness, the body a decent middleweight, and generally smooth, with a wee airy creaminess arising from the outset. It finishes off-dry, the sweet wheatiness and kind of sugary spice lingering more or less in isolation.

Overall, a not too shabby version of the style, easy to drink, and very reminiscent of summertime patio indulgence, or so I imagine. Glad I finally got to try this one without all the expensive shitty trappings of this one's packaging vector around here.

Stiegl's Weisse is a traditional, basic Bavarian-style hefeweizen with the typical appearance and notes of banana and clove from the yeast. They're not too strong, their not too light, and there's a very subtle tartness within the wheat maltiness as well. It's medium light in body and effervescently crisp - easy to drink and refreshing as it's not too sweet, and some spicy hops rouse your tastebuds in the finish so that you're ready for the next sip.

Poured from 500 ML bottle into a "Conquest" pint glass.
Aroma- Has a pretty sweet smell of wheat and barley with some honey and malt tossed in for good measure.
Appearance- Pours a nice orangish color with a large white head.
Taste- Has a great sweet weizen flavor. The malt and wheat are blended well and this is a great beer to enjoy. . .often!
Palate- This is a medium bodied beer with heavy carbonation.
Overall- I thoroughly enjoyed this beer. I had never seen this beer before but i will drink this again. This is the first memorable Austrian beer that i have had.

Pours a murky dark orange color with a small top off white head that disolves rather quickly. Sweet aroma off banana,yeast and cloves. The flavour follows the nose for the most. Sweet banana with wheatmalts and cloves, finishes off dry with a slight bitterness and a decent lenght in the aftertaste. Meddium carbonated with a thick body. The mouthfeel are creamy but a little watery. This is more than a decengt enough hefeweizen. Nothing very exiting , but good and easy driking.

A- Vanilla colored bubbles that are wee tight provide a layer of frothy cover over this golden hued brew that also has bronze tinges around the rim....this is also semi-transparent, wheat beer! The retention levels are good and the lacing is quite good, with chunky patches of foam sliding slowly back into the glass.

S- Biscuit like yeast....almost doughy, banana like esters, possible apricot kernel, appfelwine, peach, along with crystal and caramel malts.....the finish is slightly Earthy and of some sweet spice. Overall a nice, yet mild aroma that would be average-ish.

T- Overall this is mild and watered down, with yellow fruit flavors....banana, apricot, golden delicious apple, and a dry, muted spice finish. I find there is a small metallic quality about it and it underwhelms the palate unfortunately.

M/O- Champagne like bubbles that provide a nice burst of zing on the palate......light bodied and sociable, this would make a good hot weather/ladies drink. The alcohol is well hidden, but I just don't find it my kind of beer.....not offensive, but nothing to write home about. Probably pass on this one....

Had this on tap last weekend on the German pub crawl, and saw the sharp red-labeled bottle today in the shop.

Back label dated "13711" whatever that means. Guessing a euro best by/production date of July 13th, 2011? Old either way.

Into a weizen glass it pours an opaque orange copper color. Slightly more dark than a typical hefe. Lasting white foam, though there is no lacing.

Smells bready and tea-like, not much in the way of traditional banana & clove esters. Swirling the glass brings out some sweetness and unpleasant alcohol fusels. Slightly papery and oxidized already it seems, a shame as this is relatively new to the market.

Flavors are smooth and wheaty, though a but muted and dull. Some light breadiness, and hint of banana but not much. Overall a bit oxidized, papery, and watery. Not something i'll drink again. The tap sample was fairly tart, and that seemed a little odd though marginally acceptable.
