3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
1 pint 0.9 fl. oz. bottle. Best before date: 06/05. Pours a hazy gold with HUGE white head. Effervescent. Aroma is lemony and yeasty. Taste is sweet/sour yeastiness with lemons and just a touch of bananas. Leans more toward the sour side. Hints of perfume in the finish. Thin and not as complex as other hefes I’ve had. Still refreshing though.

On tap. Fine looking pale weissbier with good heasd retention. Unfortunately this is where the exfellence ends. Watery mouthfeel with small aroma and almost no flavor. Not bad, just uninteresting.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 6, 2005 From bottle. Pours cloudy light straw with a nice fluffy white head that retained well and left some lacing on my wiezen glass. Light sweet yeasty banana aroma, not much else. Extends through to the flavour, which lacks the strength and subtle complexity of my referernce hefe - Weihenstephaner. Mouthfeel is also a little on the watery side. Still, a nice refreshing drop (but then, I am biased as I love the hefeweiss style).

Very fruit. Got tastes of sourness and bananas. Cloudy gold, thin/no head. Decent carbonation; not stellar.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. The colour is yellow-orange and shady. The grand foam is white and airy.
The smell is rather mild, sourish and rather neutral with some notes of vanilla and … soap?
The carbonation is strong, soda-like. Very refreshing.
The taste is cooling and refreshing with a sourish taste and an unexpected body. There are notes of yeast and some bitterness. The aftertaste is surprisingly soft with a gentle sweetness and a fruity sour note.
This beer accompanies robust, hot or smoked food well, but I found it a bit plain on its own.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice weissbier here. The wheat really takes the taster on a journey into WeissLand, population YOU. Exquisite with lemon, as it really accentuates the wheat. Recommended.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Pale straw color with a short lived white head. Mild but decent flavors of wheat, yeast and a bit of fruitiness. Enjoyable but unremarkable.
