Sample from brewpub. Pale hazy yellow with a fluffy and effervescent white head. Banana, clove, some spice, some yeast, very refreshing. Little light and plain, nice carbonation, ok body, some fruit and dryness on the finish, overall a bit sweet.

A bit of an unremarkable weizen, albeit still strong enough for an ok rating. Heavy carbonation, good creamy mouthfeel. Big banana notes.

Creamy coriander aroma with some ginger and a touch of sourness from wheat. Hazy, dark yellow under a thin, white cover. Sour-ish flavour with some ethanol that comes together with bitterness. Coriander accent. Slightly dry, bitter finish, light body, moderate carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub. Pours a hazy yellow with a small semi-lasting creamy white head. Aroma of wheat, yeast and grain along with hints of banana, spices and sourness. Flavour’s better, it’s a bit watery but flavourful: Wheat along with light banana, other fruit and mild spices. Average bodied. Pretty good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
My Bottom Line:
This Weizen’s loose and timid flavor profile offers some yeasty dialogue amidst the important cereal presence, but the overall result pales in comparison to the great Bavarian examples.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the cloudy blond.
-This does not have your typical Bavarian Weizen nose; the banana esters and bubblegummy phenols tend to get lost in the grainy cereals.
-The flavors are not as cohesive as they could be.
-The mouthfeel is not as full and soft as I would like.
-I must admit I had had a superb Weihenstephaner the day before, so I might be harsher than usual here because this Bouillon just couldn’t stand up to the test. Weihenstephaner is simply perfect, so...
