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.

Burk från München och flaska från SB Oskarshamn. Kraftig bananarom. Fin grumlig färg. Bättre än jag kom ihåg. Fin balans. Burken bäst men mindre med jäst.

Bottle in large tumbler. Pours a hazy yellow with a rather sensitively strong carbonation. Looks beautiful. Aroma is big with yeasty fruits like banana and herbs. Taste isn’t as sweet as expected but rather balanced and elegant. Very nice Weisse.

Cloudy orange color. Aromas of bananas, bubblegum, cookies, and a bit of clove (hmm, wonder what style of beer I’m describing?) Light body and flavor. A bit sweet with some light bitterness, citrus and banana notes. Very tasty.

This beer was not very great on the nose but that may have been just the bottle that I got. I didn’t smell much of anything besides a little breadiness. The taste was excellent with a strong sense of banana and dough. It had a great structure on the palate and was delightfully sweet. This is great for how readily available it is.
