3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I spend two months each summer in Germany (a swell time to drink hefeweizen), and there a handful that I think are wonderful, and the rest are a bit more dürftig. I am AMAZED (and delighted) at having this hefe in the states, as most US weizens are kind of scary-faint imitations (if not bizarre aberrations) of the absolute top expressions. Over there Schöfferhofer, Maisels, König Ludwig ,and Schneider are most satisfying, especially nice and fresh on tap, at least up in Hamburg - - big, rich, fruity, zesty. This dancing fellow, over here (Madison, WI) is happy, happy solace, and great stuff.

Draft. Pours light amber with thick white head and lacing. Wheat and lemon citrus aroma with clove and pepper notes. Honey wheat malt upfront with banana, coriander and spice. Some cherry notes and anise in the finish.

bottle. Poured cloudy yellow with a big white head. Aroma of candy bananas. Medium-light body, creamy-smooth carbonation leaves a soft mouthful. Flavour of wheat malt, sweet orange citrus with notes of coriander, clove, and faint pepper.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle, thanks to beerpig317. Code on bottle reads 1344 07:12. Yikes. A huge chunk of congealed yeast just slipped into the glass as I poured this. Looks alright otherwise. Hazy orange color. Audibly fizzing finger of white bubbly head. Fades to a thin amount. Loose bits of lace. Soft, kind of tingly stronger carbonation. Bigger body. Light slick. Bigger banana. Kind of spicier. Bit of bready malt in the back. Moderate-plus sweet taste. Moderate bitter. Interesting, flavorful, but ultimately just alright weizenbock. Kind of stronger carbonation, not very complex malt, a bit dry. Wonder how old it is? Eh. Left the last abnormally yeasty bit in the glass. I ought to retry a fresher example.
