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.

500 ml bottle - pours hazy gold with a brilliant white head that lasts and lasts. Aromas typical weiss, but punchy, lively and fresh; banana prominent with a silky vanilla undertone. Flavours certainly closer to the bubblegum/banana than citrus side of the weiss spectrum, and I like it. Carbonation level perfect - just lively enough without being too poppish. Short, rounded finish. World class.

Cristobal37 (533) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 23, 2016
Very hazy yellow with big fluffy head. Aroma is pleasing and the expected characteristics are all there. Though citrus scent is pronounced theres no lemon flavor which I prefer. Tartness on the tongue, but otherwise a real silky malted brew and quite light. Sweet fresh candy banana. A great example of the style.

Alengrin (3865) - BELGIUM - JAN 23, 2016
Classic Bavarian Hefeweizen with thick, frothy, very creamy, lacing, beaten egg-white head and cloudy ochre blonde robe with peachy hue; lively bubbles rise up through the haze. Aroma of dried banana, lemon peel, freshly baked bread, clear soapy wheat, chamomille, fainter hints of cloves, almond, vanilla, stewed pear and kiwi. Soft, fruity onset, restrainedly sweet balanced by a soft, refreshing sourishness with some vague citrus peel accent, estery hints of pineapple, banana, green plum and sweet red apple, the latter still being palpable in the finish; soft but effective carbo, gently tingling, very ’fluffy’ and supple body as expected from the style, with both the lightly soapy and lightly sourish ’wheatiness’ and a sweetish, very bready ’barleyness’ working well together; soft clove-like phenols show up retronasally as expected, while hops are only present indirectly, providing a very weak and very brief bitterish touch in the end. Malty and wheaty finish with still that soft, subtle yet refreshing sourishness, with even a very subtle lemony touch to it. Very typical example of the style, technically perfectly executed as expected from this brewery, quenching and pleasantly aromatic the way a good Hefeweizen has to be: I would recommend this to anyone who wants to introduce themselves to the style.

Ambro206 (293) - ITALY - JAN 17, 2016
Una weiss discreta. Senza esagerazioni di esteri e aromi aggressivi. Nel bicchiere di presenta con la sua torbidità e il suo colore giallo canarino. Schiuma bianca, abbondante e persistente. Aromi di banana non esagerati, un pizzico di chiodo di garofano e crosta di pane. In bocca prima dolce e poi secca con la carbonatazione esuberante che lascia freschezza e pulizia.

degbert (1519) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Bottle. Pours a beautiful hazy gold with a high, creamy, fine-grained, lacy, white head; that’s just pretty, that is. Nose is Meyer lemon, roses, fresh bread, cardamom, apricot, and starfruit. On the tongue, it’s...hell, it’s perfect. Every hefeweizen out there wants to be this. Sweet up front, with notes of lemon and honey, moving into fresh bread and lightly roasted grain and nuts. The finish is long, elegant, and just slightly sweet. When American breweries want to make hefeweizens, they should take a long nap and then wake up and drink a bottle of this. Then they should ask themselves, "Can I make a beer three-quarters that good?" If they can’t honestly say yes, they should move on to another style.

Bavarian_Beer (32) - 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.
