3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bamberger Original Mahr’s Bräu Festtags Weisse produced a beautiful pour. The beer is a hazy reddish orange color, actually it is kind of a brilliant bronze color. It has a very large, dense and creamy head that is a nice ight orange/honey color. The head slowly diminishes to leave a creamy beige crown that lasts until the very end. The aroma is rich wheat with a light banana and clove. The flavor is comprised of toasted wheat malt, banana, some clove and alchol, mellow fruit, and a delicate, almost imperceptible hint of smoke. There is a slightly sour yeastiness in the finish as well as a waming alcohol sensation even though the is beer only has 5.5% ABV. The mouthfeel is smooth and mellow and the body is medium to full.
The label says that this is is a 0.5 L bottle, but it doesn’t look that big and interestingly enough, it didn’t fill my 40 cl Stella Artois glass. I was pizzled by this, so I filled the bottle with water and poured it into a measure cup and discovered that is really only about 350 ml (12 oz). Too bad though, I would have enjoyed a larger bottle of this tasty beer! "At least durable to 04 2007."

I can’t give this beer a strong score for any single aspect, but the beer pulls together in the end. Strong carbonation and a bready, yeasty aroma stand up from the glass. A little thin in the body but plenty of fresh fruity flavors.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle via Malt of the Earth monthly beer club. Pours a very hazy amber with a massive beige head. Nose is wonderful-wheat, bananna, vanilla, apricott, strawberries. Tastes like it smells with some toasty grain as well. Light/medium body. Smooth finish. Balanced. Quaffable. Not crazy about this style but this is one of the better Hefe’s as it is not over-carbonated and not over clovey/banannaish like so many are.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap@ Café Morshuis Albergen. Flowery aroma with a hint of cherry. Thinnish. Flavor has marzipan, raspberry and an upcoming milky and citric sourness. First signs of infection, perhaps? Hops are restricted to the background. Good thirst quencher with some bite.

Hazy orange colour. Huge diacetyl aroma along with soured milk. Big mouthfeel. Caramelly backbone with diacetyl most prominent. Unlike most, I did not find the off flavours to disturbing.
