4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

From a bottle. Cloudy yellow golden body with a very good off white head.
Banana dominates both the aroma and the flavor but it’s also nicely bready.
Medium-light body with medium+ carbonation.
Sweet up front fading to lightly bitter by the aftertaste.

Samea, vaaleankeltainen olut runsaalla valkoisella ja pitsiä jättävällä vaahdolla. Todella kaunis olut. Tuoksu banaaninen ja vehnäinen. Maku vehäisen banaaninen ja sitruksinen, raikkaan hiilihappoinen ja lopussa hieman mausteisuutta kielen päällä kutittelemassa. Oikein raikas kesäinen laatuvehnis.

Bottle at home on a hot day. Perfectly chilled. Pours Cloudy Yellow with a White head. Lovely full flavour. Thick and wheaty. Typical Hefe character with Banana and clove. Lovely consistency. After havinf The Schneider Festweisse during the week and now this, Hefeweizens are firmly back at the forefront of my mind.
