Muddy pale blond color. The aroma for a Weizen leans on the spicy side. Medium body, quite dry mouthfeel, spicy wheat flavor; short final. Not bad, but not the Weizen that will make me change my mind.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, labeled "Classic Weizen."
Deep, amber golden color. Very cloudy, with a tall, frothy head. Rich wheat malt aroma, citrus, biscuits. Banana and clove are faint but there. Rich malty flavor, biscuits, cinnamon, banana, a touch of sour. Rather reminiscent of a gingerbread man. Spicy, sweet, biscuity. Very interesting and original. Seems like it might actually be the original Biscuit Weizen praised by Michael Jackson.
