COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

500ml Bottle: Aroma of yeast, grain, slight wheat, and hints of spice and banana. Poured amber in color with a large, creamy, dense, off-white head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of wheat, grain, cereal, and slight yeast. Medium body. Slightly viscous, very tingly texture becomes dry. Lively carbonation. Wheat, grain, and slight yeast finish.

500- ml bottle poured a clear amber with a lasting off white head. Aromas of wheat, spicy hops and light carmel. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of wheat, fruittiness, light carmel and a hint of spice with a crisp fruity finish.

500ml bottle. Poured into a weizen glass. A slightly different take on a Hefe. Color is a hazy copper /orange with a super thick head that had to sit a good 3 or 4 minutes before I could drink it. It also left some noticeable lacing. The smell is a standard hefe. Flavor is a rich and creamy ( I get roasted malt ) or is it bread pudding? ? caramel, and very light banana. The flavor really is rich. Medium bodied and a bit more carbonation then most others of the style. I get a very faint bitterness, however I don’t get any hops like the brewer suggests. There’s no expiration or code anywhere on the bottle, so it’s hard to tell how long it’s been sitting around. Overall a nice brew, If you have a chance pick one up.

Came out of the bottle with a lot of fizzy white head - damn Julio’s! Pull the old shit off of your shelves! Nevertheless, after this one settled down, it’s a hazy golden amber brew with lots of sediment in suspension. spicy-floral aromas. Flavor is quite fruity - from the hops? Not much banana and clove like many other German hefe’s. This one is nice and drinkable though, good yeasty-bready character. Would love to try a fresher bottle of this sometime.

phaleslu (6554) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 7, 2010
500 ml bottle from Wine and Cheese Place, shared at The Royale on their Tuesday night Oktoberfest celebration. Wow, 23 ratings- I had no idea this wasn’t more common. Glad I got to try it. Pours a cloudy amber with a big, foamy off-white head that sticks around for most of the ride and laces the glass. Aroma of perfume, floral hops, plenty of pale and sweet malts, yeast, and clove. Flavor of floral hops, Munich malts, yeast, banana, clove, lemon citrus, and spices. Medium-bodied, with high carbonation and an unexpectedly acidic mouthfeel; it isn’t overwhelming but certainly isn’t like most hefeweizens in the palate. Very cool beer.

Bottle from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Good folks. Pours dirty, hazy gold with a 4 finger foamy beige head. Mild banana aroma. Medium body; foamy carbonation. Flavor is roast caramel with some banana and clove. There’s enough hop to make it bitter, but it seems like tangerine peel, at least that comes to mind. It is a little acid/citric I think. Very different take.

Oh my. One of the best beers I’ve had in long time. This reminds me of Schneider Wiesse. The bouquet still has a mild banana aspect but is partnered by a caramel note. Beautifully sedimented and cloudy(these 2 aspects is what launched my into good beer). Flavour wise is also familiar to a typical Hefeweizen but differs. No where as citric or fruity. Rounded out by more herbal or Earthy tones. Fabulous. I’ll be drinking more of this.

Pours amber with an off-white head. Notes of caramel, bubble gum, ester, clove, pepper and banana. Medium bodied with live carbonation. Very nice.

nuplastikk (4434) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 8, 2010
500ml bottle. Pours an amber-orange with a massive, super-head, which seriously hinders any immediate drinking. Sweet amber-wheat aroma. I think anyone who swears by the New Glarus Cracked Wheat should pick this one up. Has some wheat tones, but the addition of amber malt gives it some real depth. Rich malt tones, and a nice spicy hop balance. An interesting beer, a great addition to the Mahrs family.

Great beer! Poured like a great, classic Bavarian Weiss with a huge, foamy, frothy, cream colored, thick head that lasts a long time and lots of lace. Color is a hazy to cloudy, medium amber. Sediment in the bottom of the bottle, so hefe even if not labeled as such. Aroma is classic Bavarian Weiss too- highly aromatic, spicey, banana, malt. Flavor is like aroma but the additional hop bitterness and some astringency comes out as well. Great body and carbonation. Finish is like flavor and fairly long. A bit of alcohol at the end too. Session beer.
