On tap at the Hofbrauhaus. Nice hazy and cloudy deep straw color with a decent sized lasting head. Aroma has some banana mixed with a variety of phenols. Lots of wheat flavor with yeasty notes throughout. Good carbonation and mouthfeel. Way better on tap then in bottle.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
WOW!!! THis one is interesting. Aroma was very malty slightly acrid sour. NIce big head of sudz. Hazy gold tone. With some sedimentation. Flavor just did’nt move me at all. Very flat watery notes of guess what? Your guess is good as mine. I can’t even comprehend this as a hefe. It’s a pitiful brew to be brewed in munich. And I love hefe. Maybe it was on the shelf to long. Or maybe I need to get the 0.5l bottles. I tryed the 12oz. btls. Possible may have to rerate but for now this swill sux and I wont be getting any more 12oz. PERIOD!!!
