3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma is slightly effervescent and spicy/yeasty/grainy, with a bit of American Wheat characteristics to it. The flavor is very grainy with some lemon/bananas in there. Not quite a great hefeweizen but solid around.

Bottle 50cl from Quack-Duck thanks, a cloudy pale yellow beer with huge head. Nose is sour like and less fruity. Aroma is yeast like, sour, less malty, dry, low body, near to a low alcohol beer. Very bitter especially at the finish with lemon notes, a poor hefeweizen quite uncommon.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a slightly hazy dark golden yellow color with a MASSIVE frothy white head that takes forever to slowly fade into a lasting ring. Large chunks of soapy lacing left behind.
Slightly spicy and earthy aroma with hints of light fruit, citrus and bready yeast. Grassy hops compliment the zesty spices(pepper, clove) up front followed by the yeast character and some lemon peel. All of these notes are here but are slightly muted. Subtle alcohol and light fruit.
Medium bodied with lots of tight carbonation up front. The bread/yeast character is most prominent with hints of zesty spice, light fruit and citrus. Faint earthy hops up front are complimented by hints of pepper, clove and lemon zest. Kind of watered down and bland with everything just melding together and nothing standing out.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a good, solid Weiss and, although not one of my favorite styles, has a certain appeal to me because of its refreshing characteristics. It’s clean and somewhat light, and has a pleasant citrusy finish.
