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.

Bavarian_Beer (33) - Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, GERMANY - JAN 2, 2016
Bottle Germany. Pours a nice clear light golden hue with a thin foamy white head. Lovely clean and classic German hefe aroma of wheat, toast, a bit of clove, and more wheat. Delightful wheaty and bready flavor with some toast, clove, and a clean German yeasty tone on the palate. Nice banana tones come in once you pour the yeast in. Exemplary brew and a benchmark of the style.

On tap at the brewery: Pours orange with a thick white head. Aroma of citrus, yeasty funk, and coriander. Taste is more of the same, with some vanilla, and a really nice balance of citrus and spice. One of the best weisse beers in existence, this is really nice.
