Extra Hoppy Amber Weiss. Mahr’s master brewer has a new love -- an exciting and saucy new variety of Hallertauer hop called Saphir, German for "sapphire." There’s a metric ton of Saphir hops in this ground-breaking Weiss.

Bottle (labeled as 5.5% now). Head is initially small, frothy, off-white to light brown, mostly/fully diminishing. Body is cloudy light to medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (basement), with notes of banana, gum, clove. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Not sure where the "metric ton" of hops went, but maybe it’s not a fresh sample (even though this has only now just arrived to my local for the first time that I’m aware of, so you’d think it’s a new batch). Clunky and syrupy-watery and dull, with a sad appearance (esp. for a Weissbier). I’m frequently disappointed by Mahr’s, and this is no exception.

Bottle from BOTW. Orange=brown, cloudy, lace. Oxidized nose of chocolate, wheat, grassy hops. Tangy flavor, grassy hops, fruity, honey. This is probably way too old, but there is no drink-by date on it.

DandyWolfFloyd (1086) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Aroma - some bubblegum and a bit of Hallertau hops, Appearance - amber body, with nice nucleation. When the bottom yeast is rolled in the body is cloudy. The head is white and about 3", frothy and settles slowly. Taste - nice caramel malt, bubblegum notes from the yeast, and Hallertau hops. The rolled in yeast adds some more bubblegum. Palate - body is light, the texture is slightly creamy, the carbonation soft, and the finish tangy

PorterPounder (7417) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 28, 2015
Tallahassee, Fl - Beer Stop - 500 ml bottle. Sparkling, medium copper pour, faint bubbly off-white head that fades away quickly. Aroma has some clove accents, a bit of date and molasses sweetness. Flavor is similar in nature, kind of earthy, some clove accents, a bit of bubble gum. More in line with a Dunkelweizen than a Hefe, Mouthfeel is decently thick.
