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.

Pale yellow, but an amazing hefe, nonetheless. Nose is a bit of a detractor. Dusty nose with some banana spiciness. In the end, loads of cloves and creaminess, but a bit thin on the palate. In all, a very tasty hefe.

First of all this is a really good hefe. Fruity not to much banana in it, and very sweet and refreshing. More complex than the other hefe’s that I’ve tried. Really good. Yum.

Poured a cloudy pale white yellow color. Aroma of lemon and citrus. Flavor too was off lemon with a banana finish. Sweet, lively and acidic. Pretty refreshing.

What a great summertime beer (esp) here in FL. Definite lemon on the nose with a slight hint of vanilla. A great hefeweizen-almost don’t want to add a slice of lemon to it-nice to watch the carbonation react with the acid. Vanilla on the finish. Light, golden color with a fizzing white head; little lacing. Medium bodywith a refreshing finish.

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.
