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 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.

The body has a heavy haze and a dark brownish amber color. It is full of yeast and at the bottom of the glass there are some small chunks of yeast sediment. Up on top it shows off a thick three to four finger tall, long lasting head. This head is off white in color with a few spots of brown yeast sediment. Lacing on the glass is slick and slides right down the sides as I drink. The aroma has fruity yeast with loads of banana with a little spice and a hint of apple. Hop notes are faint and way off in the distance. The flavor reflects the nose with loads of banana notes from yeast as well as some light clove, bubble gum and a touch of apple. Towards the end I notice more wheat bread and bubble gum notes and a light touch of hop spice and bitterness. The palate is smooth and a little thick or full feeling.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5095) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Sampled from a 16 oz brown bottle this beer poured a murky orange color with a huge foamy orange-tan head that lingered forever and left good lacing. The aroma was sweet caramel, honey, faint citrus and spritzy pineapple. The flavor was tangy and tart with notes of citrus, pineapple, toasted caramel and honey. Medium length finish. Medium body. Very pleasant.

Awesome stuff. Great to have a properly done hefeweizen from the source. Cloudy orange pour with velvety head and lacing. Light banana, light clove. Great balance, soft carbonation. Light sweet finish. Tap at Churchkey.

@ Vino Bellissimo / Lima OH --- Clear deep orange amber, no head after 30 seconds, no lace. Taste is sweet malt that exposes a little biscuit and a little clove in the palate, before turning very slightly bitter with a bit of buttery prune in the finish. Pretty uncomplicated, somewhat light,

Pailhead (5073) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of apple, faint banana, grain, and a touch of wheat. It pours a mostly transparent dark amber with a fizzy two finger off-white head that quickly fades to a thing ring around the edges of the glass. There’s barely any lacing. The flavor starts with with moderate apple, some residual sugar, and caramel. The finish has some light graininess, faint bubblegum, and the slightest hints of citrus. It’s medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Overall, I love Hefeweizens, but this simply isn’t what I’m looking for in the style. It’s way too sweet and doesn’t resemble a Hefeweizen at all.

Refrigerated 0.5 L brown bottle poured into a weizen glass. Pours light amber with medium beige head which dissapates fairly quickly. No lacing, medium/light body, medium/low carbonation, and slightly estery aroma. Taste is bready, slightly tangy lemon, and some esters.

Draft. Cloudy golden orange color, large white head that settles quickly. Aroma of spiced lemon and banana. Taste is banana, clove, bubblegum. Classic.
