COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Uncle Otto’s Weiss Beer. For a beer so refreshing, it’s a very complex, satisfying taste. A special yeast produces esters, compounds that replicate subtle flavors of fruits and spices. This fermentation provides the most critical component of the extremely distinctive flavor. So distinctive, in fact, that trying to describe it leaves one struggling for comparisons; some may find cloves, even banana!

I tried this beer after I drank a disguisting MacTarnahans Honeybeer, so I might be doing it more justice than it deserves. It was very sweet, and slightly reminded me of a bitch beer.

Light gold color, large head, slightly cloudy. A light bodied wheat beer, mild malts and hops. Lot of flavor. A hint of Banana and clove adds to the fruitiness. Mouthfeel is round. Finish is smooth and clean. Aftertaste is slightly sweet. Clean and refreshing.

Very heavily carbonated...a little too much for me. The color was, at first, a brilliant orange, and then the sediments got poured in and it turned hazy. Aroma/flavor of bread, clove, banana (imitation flavor suspected). Nice summer brew, with a taste that most people would enjoy.

Not the best wheat beer I’ve had, but an excellent offering for sure. I really enjoy the easy to drink nature of this beer.

Strong yeasty aroma with nice citrus touches as well. Color is a nice brownish-orange with very little head and no lace. A very strong wheat flavor, with nice fruity tones. I think this is a very good wheat beer, especially from the US.

Not impressive on the nose, but it made up with its flavor. Cloudy yeller color , bananas and cloves, refreshing delicious, a good example of a german wheat.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2003 Pours a 'Chill hazed', golden amber color with a massive and frothy head, that is light tan inb color and the lace a decent covering sheet. Nose has a nice hint of yeast, malt sweet and citrus crisp, quite pleasing with the start sweet and a bit tart with a light top. Finish is slightly tart, lightly hopped but pleasant, dry and pleasing aftertaste, a drinkable but average beer.

Philly is in the middle of a heat wave and out of the eight different style of beers I had in the fridge I thought Uncle Otto’s was the best choice for a hot summer night. Weiss beer was a good call, and it was my fist time sampling this brew. Aroma was sour after pouring it, and head quickly dissolved leaving a cloudy beer with no bubbles. Taste wise the beer was very palatable, and quencehed my thirst.

This was yet another offering from my May Beer of the Month Club shipment. Had 3 bottles of this after work - they went down pretty easy. This brew pours a hazy amber. The white head is best described as in-between. As in: in between frothy and creamy, mostly lasting and diminishing. It really all depends on how many you have in the SAME glass. The first glass provides the best head characteristics, all that follow are poor. Lacing is virtually non-existant The nose is subtle but complex with many sweet fruit notes (bananna and apricot being strongest), cheese, spices, and perfume. The flavor is nicely balanced between sweet and acidic (sour) and has a malty finish. The brew has a medium dry, fizzy, body; and the finish feels crisp. Reminds me of something that would hail from Belgium.
