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.

Bottle from Trader Joe’s. Finally rating this one after having it many times on draft at the Alehouse. It pours a hazy glowing orange color with a fine bubbled off white head. The aroma has banana and bubblegum mostly. Subtle, but more sweet than clove-like although there are some notes of baked bread and mild clove in the background. The flavor has a bit more of the clove, but still bubblegum and banana forward. A little doughy/bready malt. A pretty classic Hefe.

Tipikáner bayerischer weissbier, nothing special, nem tud kiemelkedni a többiek közül.

Good example of the style. Orange hazy with a thick white head. Nose of banana clove and a slightly smokey bacon. Taste is similar. Very smooth. Awesome.

Bottle @home (Euro-vision 2016 tasting.) Pours yellow/golden cloudy/murky, big fluffy white head. Nose is banana, big citrus a typical hefe. Taste is along the same lines as the nose, nice enough.

Unclear hazy orange color with big thick white head. Banana and strong clove aroma. Sweet taste. Refreshing and light, but with medium to full aroma. Really something different for weizen.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Klasyka gatunku. Barwa ciemna, żółtawa, piwo zmetnione, nieprzejrzyste. Obfita czapa piany. W aromacie na pierwszym planie banan, guma do żucia i typowo pszeniczna nuta drożdżowa. W smaku zrównoważona bananowa słodycz z lekkim drożdżowym posmakiem. Wysokie wysycenie. Piwo bardzo gładkie, pijalne i orzeźwiające. Dobry wyznacznik stylu
