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.

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - MAR 7, 2011
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 500ml bottle into a tall weizen glass. The abv is listed on the back label (5.1%) but there is no freshness date. Appearance: The body has an orange/yellow color with a cloudy haze and some visible carbonation. On top I got a thick and creamy off white head. It is long lasting and makes slick lace ring which slowly slide down the sides of the glass. Smell: The aroma has notes of sweet bubble gum and banana peel with just a light touch of wheat malt. Taste/Palate: The flavor is not as sweet as the aroma foreshadowed. Tangy wheat meets the tongue first with a light clove banana yeast notes following. A touch of citrus and spicy/leafy hops leads into the finish which is crisp and fairly dry. The firm medium body has plenty of active carbonation give it a lively snappy texture. Notes: I love the texture and finish on this beer. Some German Hefeweizen beers get a little to slick on the palate but this one is crisp and feels alive with carbonation. Overall this is an outstanding Hefeweizen.

Classic appearance as expected. Cloudy yellow gold, fluffy , creamy white head. Wheat. Banana. Vanilla. Light spice. A little spritzy, some creaminess, and a hint of tart. I love a good authentic, classic German hefe. What beer is all about.

Kvkx1 (49) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 3, 2015
Sweet smell, banana and wheat. It looks like, and is, a rather light beer. There is a definite citric, refreshing taste to it, almost as if it had a small percentage of lemonade. In other aspects it is much like other good bavarian wheat beets. The head is dense and lively. Not much of an aftertaste. Overall a quality beer.

Slubgob (225) - West Hartford, USA - JUN 30, 2015
Bottle into hefe glass. Nose is vanilla touched banana, yeast and citrus. Hazy golden pour, nice white but fast dissipating head. In the mouth, full wheat feel, touch of banana, fine carbonation. Fairly quick finish. Exemplary version of the style, summer in a glass.
