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.

Banan and apricot aroma. Hazy orange appearance. Sweet, yeasty finish. Overall a nice wheat, with a lot of different hints of spices.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2005
Pours a thick, rich gold. Taste is an immediate rush of wheat, hops, and banana. Lemon is not needed, for this provides the added sparkle usually sought after with the said fruit. Nice clove aftertaste.

Bottle. Hazy golden color with a good size white head. Strong clove aroma with some banana and citrus. Flavor is also dominated by the cloves along with the wheat and some banana.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2008 Light and sparkling with a banana and musty yeast nose. When someone says Hefewiezen, this is the beer I think of. Lightly cloudy yellow with a thick white head an light banana malt body, this brew is the perfect hot-weather brew. Spicy clove aftertaste.

Tejas (897) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 27, 2005
BIG puffy white head. Cloudy. Not much aroma. Sort of disappointed in this one which I had high hopes for. Not much bubblegum flavor but a healthy amount of spicy yeasty banana flavors. No citrus flavor at all. Bought two bottles. I’ll drink the 2nd(obviously) but there are better hefes out there. This one is most likely 2 and done, unfortunately. I really wanted to dig this one.

Poured into a Paulaner Hefe glass. Light orange at the top, hazy yellow at the bottom. Pour with a full head the faded to a cap. Light phenolica and esters. Well balanced. Notes of oranges and pepper. Med body with light carb. Good show.

DocLock (8154) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2005
Hazy dark straw pour with aroma of hopcit, lemons, banana, cloves, bubblegum. Tastes hefe, with a good, firm, complex mouthfeel....a lot going on here. Finishes hopcity, yeasty, with some cloves and a semi fruity dryness.

Incubus1981 (12) - Michigan, USA - MAY 14, 2005
I fear I may have gotten a bad bottle or something, but it poured nicely- big, foamy head, golden body. Aroma was of vomit, however, which completely turned me off to the beer after the first sip. Flavor was decent, despite the smell. Just couldn’t get past that smell.

KUEric (886) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 14, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2005 Bottle: A very good looking weisse, kind of standard on color think hazy browngold. A very large head, for a hefeweizen, Has a nice citursy scent, and although its in the description I do feel there is some creamy vanilla scent and taste(the first taste you notice), also can taste hints of honey. The aftertaste is a bit carbinated for a weisse. Overall a pretty good beer.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 13, 2005
Bottle: Pale yellow, murky, large white pillowy head, settles somewhat quickly, fairly nice lacing, well carbonated.   Wheaty nose, bready, cloves, citrusy, subtle banana.   Spritzy/bubbly mouthfeel, wheaty taste, very clean.   Bready finish, lingering spices.   Very well balanced, great body.   I could drink this all year long and never get tired of it.
