3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This looks beautiful! Pours almost brown with a tall fluffy white head. The clear hefeweizen glass I'm drinking this from shows all of the body. This really looks nice when yeast/sediment is added. First, it turned the head into almost a latte like state - white with brown "spots" in it. The body became clouded with sediment swirls. Almost like a work of art! It hung suspended in the middle where it was poured. Awesome! Wish I could say the same about the rest. The nose seemed a little weak to me. Some malt, and some wheat and yeast notes, but nothing like other Germans wheats I'm used to having. The tongue seemed weaker too. It was good, but not great. Spice, malt and yeast. Finished very smooth and was easy on the palate. Refreshing though on a near 90 degree day! Worth trying, but there are better wheats out there!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I had this in Kempten, near the Altes Rathaus about 1/4-1/2 mile from the brewery. Right off tap and had not drank all day, it was nice. Don’t remember much about all the details, but the head was beautiful and taste fantastic. I also went to the brewery’s entrance where you can buy mugs cheap. I got a mass krug for less than 3.30 euro and a 1/2 litre weizen for around 2-2.50 euro. I think I spent 18.00 euro for 4 masses and 4 hefeweizen. The town is also pretty nice in the alstadt, but did not see as much as I would like. The best mug prices in Germany

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium yellow, dense tiny particles, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (light bread), lightly hoppy (flowers, lemon), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of banana, butter, and clove. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Rich malty weizen, which will probably make it a little too sweet for some people. But big esters, nice yeast and buttered bread character, and good body put this ahead of the pack IMHO.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Has a lasting sourness that differentiates it from other German wheats. A quality product that’s drinkable in large quantities. Unfortunately, it’s very hard to find - try HiTimeWine.com. Very nice - a true German wheat with yeastiness aplenty.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle - Nice hazy golden color. Typical head for style. Sweet malt aroma and only very faint clove. Flavors of light citrus(oranage/lemon). Slightly acidic dry finish. Quite quenching.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This was called the Allgauer Furstabt Hefeweizen at the local pub. After a discussion with the bar owner, I believe this to be the same beer as the Furstabt Weizen. This one is gorgeous, with a pure white rocky head, citrus aroma and clean crisp flavors. A top notch Hefe! After having Noethaler, I can’t say it’s the best I’ve had but this is damn near close. I hope to see more of this around town (and the KristallKlar Weizen!)
