Previously Innstadt Hefe-Weissbier
Die Original Passauer Weiße im Bügel ist auf Grund ihres etwas geringeren Kohlensäuregehalts milder aber gleich prickelnd und köstlich im Geschmack. Sie ist ein obergäriges, naturtrübes helles Hefeweißbier mit einem Alkoholgehalt von 5,3 vol.%.

The Innstadt Hefe Naturtrub marks the first beer in a second wave of German experimentation. A thick cuhsiony white head, and a strong lacing gripping the glass makes this beer look desperate to avoid its fate of imbibement. The beer is colored a cloudy gold marked by an asteroid field of bubbles. These in turn crash into the nose, with a soft and butter nuance, along with the sterile smell of hand wipes and salt. The texture is not unlike chewing on a marshmallow or cotton ball. It’s soft, but also persistent, pressing all corners of the mouth in a second desperate bid for freedom. The flavor is also buttery, soft, savory and quenching. A light wheat flavor permeates the brew, but it’s not a whip-cracking wheat flavor that a lot of wheat beers prefer. Mostly this is just a smooth, mostly mellow, tasty but none too bright beer. "Yum!" says it all.

BBB63 (6426) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 13, 2008
Flip top bottle and served in weizen glass: Hazy golden hue with a bellowing frothy head and excellent lacing. The aroma has notes of banana and clove esters, wheat husks and pale bready malts, some clove and pepper esters on the phenolic yeast driven nose. The taste is fruity and twangy with a light handed layer of wheat and pale malt. Some yeast spice upon the finish, does not have the depth of palate of the better example of the genre however. The mouth feel is sprite and watery, refreshing enough I guess. Started nice but petered out in the end, quaffable enough however.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2008 Swing top 500 ml. bottle, notched freshness date on the back label, sampled in a weizen glass. L: Given a proper hefeweizen pour, yeast cloudy, ripening banana peel yellow with a fluffy, bubbly topped white head that ever so slowly sank into a creamy crown. Splotchy rings of lace follows the body down the glass as I consumed it, overall, a very traditional and taste inducing appearance. S: Mellow aromas of banana and clove, mildly lemony, nut bready yeast, and a backing of malted wheat. Further whiffs bring out a soft peppery spiciness and medicinal phenols. Far from resembling a stellar hefeweizen nose, just a very stock, average one. F&T: Medium bodied, this hefeweizen starts out with a nice mild creaminess, but becomes flat feeling towards the end as the carbonation fades. The moderate carbonation loses its zip a bit too early for me, creamily crisp in the beginning, but over the duration of the taste, turns drab and deflated feeling. The first tastes I notice are nutty banana bread and lemon juice, along with a little lemon peel, followed by tiny pinches of clove and pepper. The softest of wheat twangs in the finish, along with hints of a delicate herbal hop spiciness, everything finishes on a clean and dry note. Yeah, this is a barely average German Hefeweizen, but because of it’s affordable price, a somewhat passable drinkability. Makes a nice change of pace beer, something I might drink maybe one or two times a year if my budget didn’t allow for a top notch hefe, like one from Weihenstephan, Paulaner or New Glarus.

bhensonb (12298) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 14, 2008
500 ml. bottle. Hazy apricot color with a multifinger white head. Aromas of banana, wheat, citrus and mild spice. Flavor is banana. With a little wheat, citrus and clove. It surely fits the style, and it’s very tasty. Finishes with banana and clove, but mostly banana. There’s a little noble hop bitter playing in the background.

Pour is a cloudy yellow with a large fizzy white head. Aroma is some banana with clove. Flavor is very creamy with banana and clove but with also a nice spice to it. A decent exaple of the style.

Nose of sour lemons and honey. Almost clear, slightly hazy gold, large white head that vanishes quickly. Lemon sour, sweet honey notes, pepper and clove bite, Dry citrus finish. Medium to light body. Nicer than I expected.
