Mit feiner Hefe – obergärige Premium Weiße
Brauart/Biergattung: Obergäriges, naturtrübes Vollbier
Seine besondere Braukomposition, mit über 50 % Weizenmalz und weiteren wertvollen Spezialmalzen, sowie unser eigenen, rein gezüchteten, obergärigen Leikeim-Weißbierhefe geben ihm seinen unverwechselbaren Weißbier-Charakter. Sein Aussehen ist ein sattes Gelb mit Orangentönen, viel vitaminreiche Hefe und cremig, kompakter Schaum. Im Aroma: Fruchtige Citrus- und dezente Bananentöne - erfrischend, prickelnder Gaumenstreichler. Mild, vollmundig, süffig, mit einer harmonischen Süße.
Ein richtiges Wohlfühlbier für Weißbier Kenner(innen) – schmeckt nicht nur im Sommer.

Bottle brown, 500 ml, 12.3 P
Appearance: Pours pale, yellowish body in colour, reminding the water mixed with honey, also due to the beer texture being murky and very hazy, body saturation is natural and impressive creating initially enormus, slightly off-white head being dense, pillowy and very frothy. Head decreases very slowly leaving very good lacing.
Aroma: Obvious notes of banana and wheat are present but clove and spicyness are somehow reduced focussing on more earthy - bready fresh accents. The aroma reminds me of the freshly washed clothes, directly pulled out from the washing maschine. Rather heavy aroma impression of being fat and full, some quite strong accidity, yeasty. Notes of minerals, powder sugar and vanilla. Fresh but not in the refreshing and quanching manner.
Flavour: Front is yeasty, mild in texture, salty with high mineral profile and some gentle hoppy bitterness, notes of green apple, gooseberry, kind of earthy, dusty, soily, again mineral, not much of typical mild Weizen like aspects, notes of freshly baked wheat - rolls. Finish duration is ling.
Palate: Body is medium, texture is soft and creamy, carbonation on palate is moderate, finish feel is sour, mineral, unfortunatley too much of alcohol, but still very grainy, bready and nicely hoppy.

jonas (6786) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - AUG 21, 2009
Botlle. Light citric and dry clove aroma. Cloudy yellow, huge creamy head. Fruity chewy base - its really a fruitsalad compared to most weissbier: banana, mango, pear. Vanilla, a hint bubblegum, otherwise light on the spices. Sweet dry finish. Medium body, light sparkly, chewy bread. Quite good dessert-weizen.

asheft (2968) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2009
[bottle] Sweet malt and banana aroma with some slight herbal hops. Cloudy orange-yellow under rocky white foam that quickly drops to a ring. Sweet clove bubblegum flavour with some esters, but not a lot of banana. Tiny bit of herbal dryness balancing the sweet malt. Medium body, moderate carbonation, clean finish.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2009 500ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helinki)
Cloudy pale orange, small lasting head. Pleasant hefe aroma, some citrus and banana but more just wheat. Sweet and smooth, but also slightly acidic and sour. Quite a bit of character, but not doing it for me. One glass was poured almost without yeast, and that was much nicer! It was grainier, smoother bodied, hoppier, and less sour, and that earnt it an extra point overall.
