COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Delicious lemon and vanilla scented wheat beer with yeast. This is an aristocratic beer with a champagne sparkle and a beautifully sustained head. With the pale color of mountain honey and tart refreshing palate, it is a "brut" beer with the delicious, complex fruitiness of extra-dry champagne. Bottle conditioned and top fermented, it is a benchmark for this style of beer. The nose is fruity-spicy, herbaceous with lots of flowers, and fruit. With such a creamy head, you can build miniature mountains that resemble the Alps. Pour slowly, fill the special weissbier glass half full and swirl the bottle on the table to put the yeast in suspension.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2005 Pours a cloudy golden body with a huge head. Aroma is citrus, vanilla and banana. Flavor is a wheat beer dominated by banana with a hint of vanilla. It’s very smooth.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 23, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2007 Pours light golden and slightly hazy with a big foamy white meringue head. Spicy aroma of banana, clove, light smoke and crackers. Tastes of lovely wheat, yeast and banana. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, creamy from the wheat and yeastiness, with lively carbonation. I could drink this every day, easily one of my favorite hefeweizens.

Taster @ PIB. A wonderful yellow gold pour. A yeasty, bread dough aroma. Strong clove and banana flavors come through in this beer. A full, sweet, mouth feel follows. Not dry in the least.

The bottle poured a slightly hazy straw colored beverage with a fine white heat that lasted well and left good lacing on the glass. The aroma was a pleasant combination of vanilla with a banana fruitiness. It had a medium body with lively carbonation and a slightly grainy texture. The flavor starts off with a tart fruity character maturing to more distinct wheat and banana flavors. The finish was long and refreshingly light.

Light golden-yellow with typical yeast haziness. Nice bitter-sour initial taste with fizzy and perfectly refreshing carbonation. Little thin on mouthfeel is only downside. Then comes the expected wheat malt, bananas, and yeast, in perfect harmony, leading into a lingering and wonderful clove spice finish. Very, very, very good.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2007 Tastes best at cellar temperature. Nice clove, and banana accents...Summer...nothing beats it in this category I’ve tasted thus far.

Bottle. hazy straw yellow pour. Heavy carbonation was a bit overpowering. Nice balance of banana and clove esters with some spices. Also some other citrusy elements - lemon.

Juelze (1141) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 10, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2005 Cloudy pale color with nice head. Smells of banana, clove, and citrus. Banana and spiciness throughout. Pretty taste beer but still no match IMHO for Weihenstephaner’s hefe.

Thanks to ambergirl for this one! Cloudy pale golden pour with a sizable white head. Just a little sediment in there. Aroma has some banana esters as well as some citrus, honey, and floral (overall very sweet). Sparkly and well-carbonated, so light on the palate. Flavor had a wheaty base that was followed by bananas and citrus. Sweet banana/honey finish. Very easy to drink and perfect for the season

Cloudy pale yellow with a generous white head. Aroma is banana, yeast and wheat. Flavor is sweet, banana, a little clove and a hint of bubble gum. A touch of lemon in the finish. Smooth watery palate. ( I’m not crazy about banana and bubble gum in beer).
