ALLOVATE (2333) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 28, 2006
Bottle, Fässla Bräu, Bamberg, Germany.
Into it’s own Weissbier glass late into a Friday evening. Opaque, cloudy, yellow gold with a well-supplied, huge and surging rocky white head that gripped to the glass to leave some very intricate lacing. Big, sweet and ripe bananas on the nose with softer showings of spicy phenols, dusty wheat and bubblegum. Lovely aroma that just kept lifting. In the mouth generous portions of banana and bubble gum cover and smother the palate. Underneath is some soft notes of grainy, wheat malt, vanilla and tangy, ripe lemons. Big presence of clove-like phenols in back where it dries out somewhat and shows a sour, spicy edge on the swallow. Finish is quite dry, a little tangy and fruity, and quite crisp as it drops off quickly. This literally dances on the palate - well charged in carbonation, light in body but big and juicy in flavour. It lasts well remaining clean and crisp for the length without becoming gammy or pasty, which gives it extra points. I’d have to say this is one of the best Hefeweizens that I’ve tasted. Outstandingly balanced between esters and phenols, exciting to drink and quaffable to boot. This was tasty stuff.

Hazy yellow colour with big creamy white head. Enticing aroma of caramel, fruits, apple sauce, yeast, wheat and mild spicyness. Flavour pretty much fulfills the promises of the aroma. Caramel sweetness, fruits, yeast, wheat and mild dryness in flavour. Smooth. Tasty Hefeweizen.

Bottle, at the brewery tap. Hazy lemon, good fluffy white head and good condition. Big banana ester aromas and gentle wheatiness in the nose. Low cloves initially in the nose then sweet banana notes dominating. Gentle sweet cloves and pleasant, almost hoppy, bitterness in the finish.
