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.

Took a bit to find my Weizen but it was worth it, what an appealing looking beery. Hazy golden yellow with a very noisy frothy head. Really strong citrus, cinnamon and chive in the nose. Very mellow with a complex pallet. Waves of taste. Very well balanced. Now this is what a Hefeweizen should taste like. Refreshing, wet and easy to drink. Not nearly as spicy as the nose would indicate. Really smooth. Citrus, a touch of chives and a hint of Banana. Wishing I had bought more than one of this. Fantastic.

tekstr1der (336) - New Hampshire, USA - APR 30, 2016
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.

It pours a cloudy yellow color with a white head. There are aromas of banana, vanilla, wheat, and lemon. There are flavors of banana and lemon with plenty of wheat flavor. There is a sweet character to it which has hints of citrus flavors. It has a mostly light feel to it.

Under medium sweet, light bitter, 1 grain of salt and a drop of lemon juice. Under medium body, feels slick and minerallike as well. Mealy feel. Quite dry. Medium carbonation.

Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Cloudy straw with big white head that leaves a thin film. Quite fruity with peach and banana, dough, lemon, dry flour, miso. Light sweet and even lighter bitterness, quite light in the taste overall. Under medium bodied with slightly dry feel and quite some carbonation.

BeerRenter76 (647) - Texas, USA - APR 16, 2016
Originally rated on 8/31/08. Rather dark and cloudy for a hefe, brau- weisse none the less is a pretty decent beer. The head is small and disapates quickly. Aroma of banana but not overwhelming as described above. Mouthfeel is decent and it has a crisp finish, flavors of wheat and nicely balanced spices. Not my favorite hefe but pretty good and its worth a try.

Diabobale (429) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - APR 11, 2016
Color giallo pallido, opalescente, con un cappello di schiuma bianca abbondante, molto fine e dalla lunga persistenza. Al naso tipici sentori di banana e di fieno, lievissimo metallico. Corpo leggero e carbonazione spinta ma che si spegne subito.Al palato note acidule fin da subito, lieve fruttato e finale leggermente erbaceo.

IlGagario (99) - Modena, ITALY - APR 11, 2016
In bottiglia. Colore giallo pesca opalescente torbido. Schiuma fragile e frizzante, di rapida dissolvenza. Buon naso di lievito, banana, spezie e vaniglia. Carbonazione flat, piacevolmente solleticante. Aroma solido, ottimamente fruttato di banana, leggera albicocca, percezione di mela e di pera, spezie, note di vaniglia e biscotto. Efficace doppia maltatura di orzo e frumento. Gusto dolce maltato, sapido e succoso, poi appena increspato con morbidissima luppolatura, sufficientemente solida, nello stile. Corpo leggero, trama da succosa a oleosa, abbastanza spessa e concreta, piena senza vuoti acquosi. Una delle migliori e più ricche weizen bevute.
