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.

From bottle pours a cloudy yellow/white, fairly active, light aroma...lemon, quite refreshing. I definitely get the champagne reference. Not bad at all.

Bottle. Pale yellow color, hazy liquid, white head. Brutal carbonation. Aroma of yeast, some tones of roasted malt (even if not present), lemon acid sourness. Quite bitter for hefeweizen. Quite good, even thou this is not my favorite style.

The beer has a typical weizen bier apesrence. The color of the beer is a light yellow, wit an light almost greenish tiny. The beer has a massive cloudiness. It’s definitely unfiltered. The beer pours a nice soft layer of white foam. The foam collapses slowly over time, to leave a nice drape of foam. The smell and flavor are typical weizener like. They are pretty much the same. There are lovely aromas of loris Der and lemon zest and other tropical citrus fruits. I can also clearly distinguish the alcohol, which gives a almondy touch to the beer. The balance is nice. Sweets, bitters and sours balance each other out quite nicely. It’s a proper weizener, I like it. It’s very easy to drink and really leaves you longing for another beer.

Flasche - trübgelbe Farbe, dicker, cremiger Schaum. Geruch sehr bananig, im Geschmack eher mineralisch-frisch. Gut ausbalanciert. Ein sehr gutes Hefeweizen ohne große Ausschläge in irgendeine geschmackliche Richtung. Im Abgang eher trocken. Kaum süßlich.

toast, bread, caramel, herbs, dough, banana, vanilla, clove, some gentle pepper. When it gets warmer however, sadly becomes a clove soup. pale, hazy, white foam, frothy. light sweetness, lightly bitter, same taste notes as in aroma. light-medium body, slick feel, lively, long smooth slightly sweet finish. Overall a good wheat, nicely balanced untill it warms up a bit more.

Probably the best beer i tasted already, all the flavours from the start to the end pleassed me. I’m not a fan of wheat beers and even tasted many, but this is fantastic

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Hazy straw-golden pour with white ring of foam. Aroma is banana and lemon. Flavor is delicious with banana, bread, bubblegum, and just a mild touch of sour lemon. Rather carbonated, so the mouthfeel isn’t as smooth as it could be. Tasty example of this classic style though.

Bottle at Beer Ditch. Hazy golden, large white head. Banana, wheaty, some phenols, plenty of bananas. Medium body, medium to high carbonation. Semi dry low bitterness.
