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.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - NOV 15, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2012 Bottle. A hazy medium blonde beer. with a huge, frothy, fully lasting, white head. The aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted bread), lightly to moderately yeasty (dough), with notes of banana, pear, bubblegum, lemon, hint of spices. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, average lenght finish with light to moderate bitterness. I firstly had this one in Aying back in 2006, and since then it’s always been consistent. Excellent aroma, very fruity and a bit spicy (but somehow more peppery than clovey this time). Really enjoyable.

The commercial description is generally accurate (although the champagne comparison is a tad ambitious). A very pleasant lightweight wheat beer with a distinct lemony finish. 500 ML bottle acquired at Milwaukee’s Discount Liquor for $2.69.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 12-29-23 re-rate. Wheat and faint banana in the nose. Huge white creamy head. This is the way a beer should look. Murky dark yellow when care is made to ensure all sediment and yeast is poured in the glass. Some citrus in the flavor. A hint of sourness along with some breadiness. Not bad but not as good as my previous rating or those of the collective ratebeer community would indicate. 10-29-06. Excellent banana aroma. Thisis the way a German weissbier should smell. Cloudy orange body whose head disapates too quickly. Head almost fully diminished and virtually no lace. Very lively carbonation. Nice flavor. Seems a little too electric, though. 9,3,8,3,14

Light banana and lemony ester aroma. Furious clearish gold pour. Rocky top of super foam. Flavor, an almost distant smoky sweetness. Plain estery malt, with edges of banana, faint toast and light celery. Nice body. Smacks a little unexciting. Not the most fulfilling of weisses for me. Slight sourness. Light apple skin balance. Smacks of grain husks.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2007 This beer pours a cloudy yellow color with a medium white head that dissipates very quickly w/ no lacing on the sides. Flavor is very lemony and zesty with good notes of bananas in there! Perfect for those summer afternoons when you want a cool refreshing beer! This beer is awesome for the style. Love this beer! Cheers!

From Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden color with long lasting head. You really can smell the banana and floral aroma in this one. The banana flavor is real evident as well. Body was medium thick just the way I like it. Not my favorite but never the less damn good.
