4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy gold with a big lacy ivory head. Smells of spicy cloves and light banana aroma.
Tastes of wheat malt and spices. Cloves and light pepper. Ripe banana and sweet flavors. Lightly fruity and lightly sour. A nice lightly spicy aftertaste. Really tasty. And smooth. And creamy. Very good beer. Maybe the best Hefe I’ve had.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2006 Pours light golden and hazy with a white frothy head. Aroma is banana, bubble gum, cotton candy and toasted malts. Taste is bready with a spicy yeast character that has trouble living up to the aroma. Notes of toasted malt, wheat, and cookie are also present. Tart and lightly acidic finish. Body is thin and highly carbonated. Quite enjoyable. Despite having tried hundreds of beers, this is still one of my favorites.

Perfect cloudy light orange/yellow. The aroma could be stronger, but has the right banana yeast. Interesting flavour with some acidity and sweetness fighting for dominance. Some spice (clove, cinnamon) in the aftertaste.

Light bodied, not quite as cloudy as I would have expected. Creamy looking head with orange, malty and sweet notes. Clover honey and roasted, somewhat smokey flavors. Foam had something of a coppery taste.

A hazy golden appearance with a tall thin white head. Minimal aroma - wheat. Light bitterness, and smooth flavor. Very easy to drink. A light refreshing beer. Good with lunch, or a light meal perhaps.

The bottle poured a golden hazy liquid topped with an ample creamy white head that lasted very nicely with beautiful lacing. The primary aromas were of banana and clove with a slight earthy note in the background. The flavors were straightforward consisting of malt sweetness accompanied by notes of banana. This was balanced nicely by a slight hop bitterness that lingered through the finish which left a nice alcohol warmth on the back of the throat.

Bottle. The colour is yellow with a tint of gold. The head is two fingers high, white and compact.
The smell is sour, sweet fruit drink, lime, yeast, herbs, apricot jam, and earthy notes.
The carbonation is strong and refreshing with medium sized bubbles that tickle the tongue.
The smell is soft, sourish with an earthy flavour of yeast, apricots, and hazelnuts. The body is surprisingly strong for a Weiss bier. The aftertaste is a bit perfumed with some sweet-sour notes.
A well crafted classic German Weiss bier. I liked it!
