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.

Leighton (11315) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2010
Keg at Euston Tap. Pours cloudy golden brown with a thick, white head. Big wheat, yeast and clove nose. Fairly sweet, with nice wheat notes, slight metal and citrus, more yeast. Light to medium in body with heavy, creamy carbonation. Finishes with light wheat, some bubblegum, light dryness. Very decent.

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.

brokensail (11085) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 9, 2011
A: The beer pours a hazed amber color with a finger or so of white head. S: It’s definitely got some hops to it. Starts off with citrus and hints of tropical fruits. Past there, there is the usual aroma of sweet malt and wheat bread with a somewhat mild banana and clove note. T: The flavor isn’t quite as good, however. Light banana notes and a strange tea flavor. A good dose of citrus peel, as well as some floral hops and a light grassiness. Plenty of sweet bread and wheat. M: The body is medium with a medium carbonation. O: While the aroma was nice, the flavor was lacking and overall just wasn’t the most enjoyable beer to drink.

adnielsen (9247) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 19, 2011
Bottle @ home. Dark orange-yellow and hazy appearance with a light tan head. Some sediment dispersed in the body. Slightly darker wheat malts with a different hoppiness than most German Hefeweizen while still having the characteristic banana smell. Creamy mouthfeel. Lemon citrusy beer that’s a bit sour with wheat malts. Kind of a dull wheat aftertaste.

3fourths (8100) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2010
bottle. medium orange and cloudy, white head, average retention. yeast in the nose is sharp and metallic to go with the artificial sweetener and generic fruit note that’s given by the hops. begins light, fluffy and creamy. turns quickly to heavily perfumed flowers and grapes, with a stinging, bitter bubble gum sharpness and acidity. the finish is especially unpleasant: tingling, acidic gum / hops / jolly rancher / aspartame. a hoppy weissbier that doesn’t work at all.

500ml brown bottle with no date. Says it is a extra hoppy amber hefeweizen utilizing the Saphir hop. Pours with a huge, uncontrollable white head that is slightly foamy. The body is an amber/gold that looks decently filtered. They head takes a long while to dissipate leaving some pretty nice lacing. On the second pour I swirled for yeast, even after a minute of swirling not all of it had come off the bottom- there is a lot of yeas hiding in this bottle. The smell is as one might guess, yeasty, with heavy spicy clove and a hint of banana, but there is also a nice grassy, herbal, and spicy hop presence that is welcome. The flavor is super-citrusy, almost like a witbier. Tons of lemon, almost tart. The clove makes a smaller appearance in the taste along with the wheat and a heightened bitterness form a normal Hefeweizen, though not at all super hoppy. The mouthfeel is highly carbonated and prickly, this makes it refreshing on a hot summer day. This is a great Hefeweizen right here, surprisingly it isn’t talked about much.

Ughsmash (7154) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 28, 2011
500mL bottle. Poured medium golden with a creamy off-white head. The aroma picked up lots of orange meat and other fruity character over vinous, banana, and bready notes.. almost juicy on the edges.. very interesting, and well-balanced. The flavor opened with tangy wheat and orange zest, with bready and banana notes following.. more orange bitterness and tart wheat around.. I loved the tangy and bitter notes on the finish, but there was too much sweetness in there. Medium-bodied with too much prickly carbonation on the palate.. overall a very interesting brew, that could be great with a few changes.
