3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed 3/6/13. This was probably the first beer I bought that I truly loved, so I’ve been meaning to revisit this one for a long time. 12 oz bottle into a weizen glass.
A: Pours a darker amber color that seems both less hazy and fizzier-looking than others in the style. The head is a beautiful five-finger pale cream color. It has one of the softest-looking textures I’ve ever witnessed in ANY beer head, and retains itself reasonably.
S: This one is relatively clove-forward, with the general malts being the secondary aromatic feature. It seems like this one comes off ’drier’ than most.
T: Differing from the nose, the flavor itself is quite banana-forward to start. The banana esters will fade to a midtaste/finish of lactic cream, wheat, and cloves. No real depth here, just a solid no-frills hefeweizen.
M: I wondered if the feel would be dry due to the lack of a sweet nose - and I was wrong. This is a creamy, semi-sweet weizen, and pulls it off well. The thickness of the texture conceals the high carbonation somewhat, but as the carbonation fades, it seemingly becomes dry - very nearly to the point of being watery. On the plus side, it becomes more drinkable this way.
O: I don’t know if this is quite the beer I fell in love with...ah well, it’s still good stuff. And it’s available practically everywhere to boot.

Piwo ciemnozłote mętne z ładną pianą która się utrzymuje. W zapachu mocno wyczuwalna pszenica. W smaku pszeniczne, pełne. Jedno z najlepszych piw przenicznych jakie piłem, mimo że koncernowe 😉

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Bright amber color, half-transparent, middle carbonation, little foam.
Smell of fallen leaves, banana, freshness.
Taste is half sweet, half sour, very gentle with a bit bitterness (very bit).
Aftertaste - dried squid, sour, spicery.
Really nice beer. Can recommend to everybody who wants to try the german Hefe-Weissbier.

From keg. Hazy copper with a firm, warm off white head with slight lacings. Aroma is sweet and bready, banana, citrus, grains. Taste is stylistically leaning toward the malty side, banana, bread, minimal bitterness. Doesn’t get tol sweet however, gets a bit dry towards the end. Medium body, low carbo. Clean.
