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.

Poured out of a standard Hefeweizen sized 500 ml bottle. Aroma is very faintly banana. Looks decent with a cloudy pale golden body, but the head is a bit too small for the style. The head also dies out very quickly and little to no lace is observed later. Lively carbonation and light mouthfeel. Taste is light on the bananas and clove, and much more leaning towards lemon, orange peel, and pineapple. Very refreshing and crisp, but lacks the creaminess of some other hefeweizen beers I have tried.

Wow--who knew that Weissbier could be this good? The subtle hints of vanilla and citrus in the flavor and aroma lead up to a refreshing taste that all beer lovers are predestined to love. Really. I'm not kidding. You don't have a choice.

skaughty (652) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 13, 2004
This honey-colored dream pours murky with a dense white frothy head that laces well and lasts. Very yeasty in aroma and flavor. After the doughy sweetness crosses your nose, a moderate citrus and floral scent appears. This beer doesn't impress with sophistication - just balance. The creamy (yet dry) and soft mouthfeel (lacking any bite) makes this soooo drinkable. A true pleasure.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2004 This beer looks fantastic with its large foamy frothy white goodness of a head [ein sehr grosses Schaum]. The head does not remain long [dauert nicht so lange], but the flavour is so mild and pleasant and refreshing that you do not care so much. Its appearance is of a cloudy, thick, creamy opaqueness, a light golden. Ovreall, a positively delightful brew, not overpowering or offensive, but completely compliant, tasting of vanilla, bending and willing to quench your beer-thirsty desires, to satiate your ever-expanding beerthirst [Bierdurst]. This beer ranks with Oberdorfer as oen of the best Weissbiers I have had. "Even the burp tastes good. Holy crap [heilige Scheisse]."

A really nice hefe. Not the best, but better than most. A very fruity, lemon-like flavor. Lighter in flavor and mouthfeel than Schneider or Paulaner, but not the lightest. Overall, one of the better hefes out there if you find it. Quite refreshing.

This isn't amazing or nonstandard in any way. It isn't over the top. It isn't new. It isn't extreme. It's straight up hefeweizen and all that that implies. If you don't care for weizens, this won't impress you. If you do care for weizens, this is an excellent quaffable beer. Ich liebe Bayern!. . . . .they know how to do weizens right.

Cloudy light blond color; giant head. Strong spicy aroma, with some citrus fruits notes. Quite good malt, residual sweetness, good wheat character, spicy. Undoubtly one of the best weizen on the market.

heemer77 (5187) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - FEB 26, 2004
Fairly light colored with lots of bubbles that are not felt in the mouth. Strong lemony aroma and taste. Overrides a lot of the beer. Light and refreshing with a little banana.

bu11zeye (12314) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - FEB 22, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2004 (Bottle) Pours a hazy yellow with a thick frothy white head. Refreshing citrus taste that would be great on a warm summer day.
