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 standard German wheat beer appearance, with a slightly citric bitter aroma. Bitter and slightly orange juice flavour. Overall a very pleasant beer.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2004 Milky white and a nice head. Thinner body than a few other hefeweizens, but more than satisfactory. Citrus, wheat bread, cloves, and yeast flavors in the beer are also noticeable in the aroma as well. Not as "wheaty" on the aftertaste, which I actually prefer (but by no means is this beer flat either). My favorite German Wheat beer in the world. Prost!

I'm very impressed with this beer. The color is a little light, but the flavor makes up for that.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 3, 2003
Pale yellow and murky, big white head. Not much in the aroma. Pretty standard hefeweizen, citrus/yeast/banana flavor, sharp acidic and a lot of carbonation. Little sweet at first, dry finish. Not bad, little thin and lacking in flavor, but not bad.

Murky pale yellow color with a massive white head. The aroma and flavor were typical clove/banana/ bready tones. Nice average wheat beer.

I was not impressed by this beer. The taste was pretty bold but the aftertaste was rather foul. The aroma mimicked the aftertaste. There's a decent amount of flavor when you first taste it but once that foul taste kicks in it ruins it.

Nate (3792) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2003
Sweet and wheaty aroma. Slightly bitter with touch of citrus rind. Light cloudy amber beer. Huge frothy white lacing head. Medium heavy carbonation and light body. Light and refreshing in taste. Wheaty with light citrus notes. Bubblegum and alcohol. Clean sweet finish and after. This is a nice wheat, though less substance in body compared to Paulaner, Franziskaner, etc. Quite good.

Sigmund (5345) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 27, 2003
(Bottle). Cloudy light golden colour, large head. Typical hefe aroma (which is good), cloves, flowers and some citrus. Light bodied, typical hefe flavour but there's just too little of it, thin mouthfeel. Finish / aftertaste is definitely too thin / weak. The Ur-Weisse is a better choice.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - APR 16, 2003
This is a really nice Weizen. It has a beautiful golden cloudy body and a snow-white head on top. Nice wheat malt flavor and one of my favorite overall Weiss/Weizens. I am constantly impressed by the abundance of great beers coming from Germany and especially the Weizens. This one ranks with Paulaner and Schneider. You won't be dissapointed.
