UPDATED: AUG 1, 2003 Bottled. I found this in a convenience store at the Doral Building on Michigan Avenue, tucked behind the Coors Light tallboys. Tasted it on the train home, since the rush hour schedule wouldn't let me stop over at Flossmoor Station. Drank this from the bottle, so I couldn't tell the color well. But drinking from the bottle did kick up a nice foamy head inside, and there was a fine coating of yeast at the bottom of the bottle. Presented a nice wheaty nose when I opened the bottle. The usual clove and banana tastes only became apparent after the first few sips. Between that was a nice malty sweetness balanced unobtrusively by German hops. Further down the bottle, the lemony taste becomes evident, which builds to a nice tartness as it warms up. All in all, a good, tasty beer to find.

Outra cerveja que se enquadra bem no estilo proposto. Coloração turva e alaranjada. Baixa carbonatação. Aroma de banana. Sabor doce, com notas de cravo.

Tap. Pours hazy dark golden with big lasting white head, just as expected from a hefeweizen. Aroma is loats of estery banana and sweet ripe fruits. Some bubblegum notes and small hint of clove. Taste is quite sweet and banana, no bitterness and really creamy body. Just as I like my weisse.

Draught @Cerveseria Jazz in Barcelona. Pours rich dark golden, almost orange with one finger of creamy white head. Heavy smell of wheat and banana, similar taste, very rich weizenbier flavor. Excellent.

Osprey87 (1711) - WALES - SEP 7, 2014
Keg at Euston Tap. Dark murky orange, hazy, sparkling, small white head leaves full lacing. Aroma is clove, apple pie with cinnamon, light metal later on. Body is medium to light, spritzy carbonation, quite foamy. Taste is apple, dough and clove up front. Breathy wheat ester, medicinal peachiness later on. Good.

Renobob (637) - Besançon, FRANCE - AUG 27, 2014
Bue à la pression. Nez floral. Au palais, c'est très acide pour une blanche allemande donc surprenant. Pas désagréable à boire mais une pinte suffira.

chinchill (1879) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 26, 2014
11.2 oz bottle. Deep amber body with a durable, creamy head and excellent lacing. Flavorful, with moderate levels of banana and yeast/spice over a good wheat base.

Alengrin (1742) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Classic Bavarian Hefeweizen with yellowish white, irregular, creamy, initially rocky head and deep peach blonde colour, darker than usual for the style, cloudy. Deeply fruity aroma of pear, banana and apricot, cloves, almond, yeast, wheat, bread. Very fruity, sweet onset, soft, nice yeasty spiciness, light hop bitterishness in the finish, where the wheat sourishness also develops, ending dry. Great example of this refreshing and elegant style.
