3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Predictable aroma of citrus and yeast. Pours a cloudy deep gold with a generous soapy white head. Flavor of apples, oranges, yeast, malt. Good mouth feel, consistency of coffee with cream, lets say. Finishes far less yeasty than other hefeweizens I’ve tried, more orange and bread. Light and refreshing, if not too heavy on the flavor.

Anise ,banana, nutmeg aroma very present. A bit light bodied but very drinkable Weisse. Light bite slight hops. Lacing and head was poor in the bottles I had.

Smells great but has little body. Very little head, and an almost sour note on the finish. Not the best hefe.

500ml bottle. Spicy, citric aroma, quintessential German Hefe attributes of clove and banana along with background sweetish honey and wheat malt notes. Hazy, pale golden color with a rocky white head that fades to a fine cap. Flavor profile is sweet, bready and grainy to start with a hint of vanilla, becoming fruitier and featuring plenty of citric, acidic lemon thereafter, finishing clean with a refreshing, bitter quality. Light and fluffy on the palate with a light-medium body. Highly drinkable and a classic interpretation of the style.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
An immense, rocky head falls slowly over a thick, cloudy, golden/wheat body. Big, bold, classic Hefe aromas, heavy on the clove with additional green grapes and smoke. Aromas are bigger than the flavor which falls a little flat in comparison. The yeasty goodness is still abundant, but it doesn’t last due to the beer’s thinness. I concur with the previous rater’s comment about it being a "drinking weiss" (sic).

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good in the summer because it has no body. It’s more of a drinking weisee than a savoring weisse.

It is a proper weisse, no doubt about that, but it is a bit too malty. It lacks some bitterness and freshness to balance it.

I used to love this. Now I find it way too banana. But it’s still a well crafted German weissen.
