1pint .9fluid.oz No born on date to be found.

Pours a nice cloudy full bodied ale with a flat base until you swirl all that nice yeast on the bottom then you'll see that nice pillowy head. Scent of bannanas and cloves with a nice yeasty balance.This a nice heffe! light and balanced and would due nicely with some bratts or a nice cheese sampling. Its up there with Ayinger and Franszisakainer. Its a little pricy but definatly worth the try.

On-tap at JP McGrady's in Bethlehem, PA.

Probably not the best place to have this one, but I'll take it. Overall, this beer showed a lot of great yeast flavors, but couldn't pull together a great, singular taste. The mouthfeel was flat, that might be the bar's fault, but the drinkablity was pretty good.

I had this on tap a couple of times. The fresher the better.

A: Hazy, dark yellow-straw; Fluffy white head, awesome retention and lace.

S: Banana and bread, with a little citrus.

T: Nice fruity banana, a little bready, with some citrus (orange and lemon). Very good.

M: Moderate body is malty and creamy. Carbonation is moderate. Great.

D: Fruity, with a solid malty backbone. It's great.

Maybe the lightest hefe i've had. Quite thin, very subtle flavor. Their pils is also quite light and thin. Nothing off-putting, but compared to the best examples of the style, somewhat bland. A local store got this as a replacement for the Erdinger that they can no longer get. Not in Erdinger's class, IMO.

500ml Srcew capped bottle dated 10-12-04 Found this today at a local liquor store. First time I've ever seen it and I guess I'll be the first to rate it. Beautiful pour in my Franziskaner Weissbier glass, cloudy bright gold with a thick fluffy snow white head looking like the Swiss Alps. Aroma is yeasty, citrusy and spicy with notes of clove. Body is smooth yet carbonation is very soft. Flavor is refreshing, wheat malt, lemon and clove with a slight sweetness. Good retention leaving scattered lacing and retaining a bit of head till the finish. Overall not bad at all for the style.
