First I've noticed the smell of yeast as I opened the bottle. The taste has a strong yeast note too. Not what I was looking for. Perhaps a nice beer to a good Bavarian meal like Eisbein and Sauerkraut.

500ml flip-top bottle bought at YATA in New Town Plaza, Shatin.

Cloudy hazy golden honey orange colour with dirt like yeast sediments; Explosive three finger head with crumpety white foam which last for about 2 minutes; Small lacing and fizzy carbonation; Very fragrant aroma of banana, vanilla, malt, clove, earth and spices, which can be smelt half a feet from the glass; Light taste of malt, light caramel, earthy yeast, cloves, light citrus and faint grass; Medium body, pretty thick palate; Taste profile is nearly non-sweet malt light malt in a very light tart background, with rather pleasant light phenol, cloves, and spices; Hoppiness is minimal, mostly light citrus taste but with some trace of bitterness, Finishing is light citrus and tartness; Pretty dry after taste, very easy to mouth.

Comments: This is a nice one. Through not as flashy and exotic as Paulaner, it has very earthy and rustic aroma and taste like Franziskaner, with excellent head, less wheat and more thickness in mouth feel, and a rather subdued and pleasant herbal hop presence. Like its Weissbier Dunkel, this is a hearty good one!

One of the best beers this week. Quite easy to drink for a Weizen with below average carbo and more hops in the aroma and than usual. Quaffy, mild - fine.

McTapps (4100) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 19, 2013
Light milky orange-golden colour with steady head and medium body. Nose of yeast. Taste of fresh yeast, fresh fruit salad, grass, malt and dough. It is a very fresh and lively Hefeweizen, not as dull and dusty as many others.

#633 Für ein helles Weißbier ist es relativ dunkel geraten und hat eine überbordende Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist leider nur hefig mit verhaltener Nelke; leider ohne Fruchtaromen. Beginnt im Antrunk süßlich und ist im Geschmack wiederum hefig und leicht rezent. Läßt sich gut trinken, aber da fehlt definitiv Fruchtigkeit und Würze. Es ist mir zu laff geraten. Zweiter Kritikpunkt betrifft die mangelnde Spritzigkeit; dem Keiler geht schnell die Luft aus und er wirkt dann schal; für ein Weißbier nicht so prickelnd! Test vom 23.10.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,9,9,8,10,9 - 9,20

Half Liter Swing-Top Bottle from Germany. Mine had a green label. An excellent Hefeweizen! Banana, wheat scent with a hint of clove. Cloudy, hazy hay colored pour with a foamy white head with stay power. Medium bodied, silky feel. Similar to scent, a banana, wheat flavor with a mix of spices, clove maybe. Loved it.

Bottle at Punto Birra. Cloudy yellow pour with a white head. Fruity nose. Wheat characteristics with fruit notes (maybe more from the malt than the hops). Medium body and nice carbonation. Would be better served on a sunny day in a German beer garden....
