2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bernsteinfarben, ordentliche Krone. Hefige Nelkenwürze, leicht bananig. Süßer Antrunk, geradezu mildwürziger Geschmack und dann gegen Ende wässrig. Alles was ein richtig gutes Weizen ausmacht, fehlt mir hier. Unterdurchschnittlich und geradezu fade im Geschmack.

Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. This one is a really nice Hefeweizen with a nice aroma and great taste. Unpale amber in colour with low head. Nose of rich yeast. Taste of mild yeast (not too overwhelming), grass, spicy hops and cereals. Really easy to drink and quite delicious.

Hazy orange golden color with mild carbonation. the "swirl" added more haze to the pour. Aroma is oranges, toffee. Mouthfeel is a little flat and taste is mildly sweet. Not getting the usual weizen flavors from this one...

Thank you Edeka! These mixed six packs have been a blessing in exposing these small brews to the rest of Germany. Another fine example of a hefeweizen from a regional brewery, that would ahve been lost in obscurity. A nice deep, cloudy golden/amber with full weizen characteristic flavor. Delicious with some grilled weisswurst....

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy orangish color with smallish off white head. Smell is wheat, clove, bubblegum. Taste is similar to the smell with some babana notes as well. It finishes spicy and slightly dry. Body is light plus and somewhat creamy with crisp carbonation. This is a full flavored weizen and domain tasty too.

Bottle. Golden color, hazy. Citrus and a hint of yeast in the aroma and flavor. Refreshing. Pleasant. Could use a bit more character.
