3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 23, 2013 Nice white head and hazy orange/yellow colour. Smells little spicey and maybe orange. Taste is sweet/sout, well balanced, with evident wheat taste. Very dry finish. It’s different than most of weizen, because I did’t taste the banana note, not really, but maybe also for this is a very interesting and particular weizen. The finish is very dry. Carbonation is perfect. Very good beer.

Bottle: Thanks, Jason. Super hazy, muddled & radiant yellow body with a soapy, somewhat chunky white head that slowly settles to a collar. Lovely hefeweizen yeast aroma; rich bubblegum with light sweetness, banana Laffy Taffy, fruity & faintly perfumey esters, a bit of warming clove, fresh baked bread, wheat, & a slight kiss of mint leaf. The taste is just as advertised by the aroma, only in different proportions. Big clove out of the gate; spicy but not overbearing. Gummy, golden baked bread, chunky hefe yeast, huge blanket of wheat, subtle banana & even a touch of apple. Nice, relatively hefty body with a good yeast thickness to it. A very enjoyable hefeweizen.

Bottle at home. Has a hazy light orange colour with big, creamy head. Sweet aroma with fruity yeast, cloves, banana, some vanilla and wheat. Balanced and rich. The flavour follows up and is sweet and with nice spices in the aftertaste. Has a soft and slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A well-balanced, rich and tasteful hefeweizen.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice and bright hazy orange with a thick white head...great retention and lacing. Aroma has significant spice and a touch of orange. Flavor follows suit and balances nicely with an earthy bitterness that dries it out nicely. Mouthfeel is medium and silky while the finish is crisp and dry and wheaty/earthy...almost minerally. Very nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Kloster Andechs in Nov. 2011: Cloudy golden. Voluminous and persistent cap of tiny-bubbled meringue adorns the glass. Bright aroma of fresh baked spiced apples, plastic- and clove-like phenolics, banana cream pie, white raisin, tropical fruit, bubblegum, pineapple, and an abundance of floral Hallertau. Expressive carbonation is fluffy and creamy. Tad watery body. Delicate pineapple acids dovetail with a spicy-sweet dessert apple vibrancy. Pronounced airy phenol and clove notes cleanse the palate and pave the way for a creamy banana puree suppleness. Wheat is very polished, fluffy and starchy and harmonizes beautifully with the Hallertau-derived honeysuckle nectar. Quenching nectarine- and pear-like acids add tremendous lift to the beefy wheat and fluffy, yet perfectly understated, bubblegum center. Ongoing floral luster graces the exquisitely balanced finish which is awash with banana cream pie flavors and sassy clove spice. Plasticlike phenols emerge in each tasty belch. A tasty weissbier that showcases bright and clean fermentation byproducts along with elegant hoppiness and great malt character. During our visit to the Kloster, all three of the lagers (Jubiläumsbier Dunkel Naturtrüb, Doppelbock Dunkel, and the flagship Dunkel,) were curiously mediocre to poor (DMS in most of them), and this rock solid weissbier emerged as the clear winner.
