Weissenheimer seems faithful to Destihl’s Belgian-style skillset and also does a nice job of honoring the traditional German Hefeweizen. Yellow and cloudy appearance. Bread, wheat, and candy aromas. Sweet grainy flavoring with some spiciness. Very light but refreshing.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
In the clearance aisle at Tiffanies. Pours a cloudy brownish yellow with a small head that instantly fizzles away. Carbonation stays active and there is an interesting churning that refreshes the thin band of foam that sticks to the outside of the glass. Aroma of banana, clove, sweat bread. Taste is a doughy sweetness with mild tart notes up front that fades to just a plan mild sweetness in the middle. Ends with some faint hints of yeast, banana and clove and a little more tartness emerging at the end. Very mild, verging on weak taste. What is here is OK but is very simple and lacking any distinctive features. Not something I’ll get again even at $2.99 for a 4 pack.

12 ounce can into weizen glass, canned on 721/2015. Pours hazy golden yellow color with a 2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big banana, bubblegum, clove, vanilla, lemon, wheat, biscuit, light honey/nuttiness, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big banana, bubblegum, clove, vanilla, lemon, wheat, biscuit, light honey/nuttiness, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal bitterness, yeast spiciness, and wheat tang on the finish; with lingering notes of banana, bubblegum, clove, vanilla, lemon, wheat, biscuit, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth and creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.2%. Overall this is a great hefeweizen. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and refreshing to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
