3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Milky golden pour, nice head retention. I’m not really sure what to say about this one. Everything you look for in a good hefe is there, but nothing really sets it apart. Its very nicely balanced, and is a great example of the style, but it doesn’t have that little something that sets a brew like weihenstephaner apart on its own level. Very enjoyable though.

Pours a hazy yellow colour with a big compact head. Aroma of banana, cloves and citrus (less than usual for the style). Medium body, fizzy carbonation with bubbles coming up all the time. Taste of banana, cloves and citrus.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a huge white head. Aroma is typical hefe. Banana and clove with wheat malt base and maybe even some vanilla. Flavor is a little on the thin side with the banana and clove being the main thing I detect. A bit of metal toward the end which was kind of weird. Typical but thin German hefe.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flasche - goldgelb mit dicker Schaumkrone. Sehr gut abgestimmtes Weizen, wenig nervige bananige Noten, allerdings sticht auch sonst kaum etwas richtig heraus. Gewürzig. Durchaus ein gutes Weizen, aber mit 96 hier hart overrated, wie praktisch alle deutschen Biere, die in den USA verkauft werden.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This was poured into a weizen glass.
The appearance was a hazy/cloudy burnt orange color with a thick rocky/foamy white head that took its time to dissipate. Rough messy lacing.
The smell started off with the spicy clove up front and then the sweet banana esters, slightly earthy, subtle biscuit.
The taste wrapped together all of the previously mentioned flavors with the sweet breadiness lingering into the spicy clove in the aftertaste nicely.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body. Spices hit with a gentle harshness on my tongue.
Overall, damn, what a nice hefeweizen. Definitely would have again.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
May. ’15. On tap at Andechser am Dom. Hazy yellow bodied with typically big head. Very nice in-style aroma, banana and orange were screaming out of it. Flavor was mildly sweet, chalky, fruity, creamy and smooth on palate. Medium bodied with low carbonation accompanied with pleasant finish that followed the flavor. Again, very good, scholar Hefeweizen example, but still expected a bit better somehow.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 0.50l. Cloudy golden color with medium frothy white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of wheat, yeast, banana and cloves. Taste starts light sweet grainy and honeyish, follows refreshing citric and grassy with mild spicy mouthfeel and light bitter finish. Light to medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Well done, but not so special, although I might be a bit spoiled...

One of my favourite weizen! Aroma is light fruit. Not only banana also apple and other sweet stuff. Taste is very mild in perfect harmony with the aroma. Silky smooth mouthfeel that is long lasting. Overall very good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours cloudy light orange from the bottle. The expected sweet banana aroma is accompanied by something more tart - in the direction of green apple. Taste is the expected Weizen, accompanied with bread, banana and the advertised honey melon notes. Very pleasant. The beer has a little bit more carbonation than I would expect in a Weizen and at the outset this seems mask the finish. However as the session progressed the dry and short if crisp ending was increasingly replaced by a lingering sweetness. Very good stuff.
