COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unfiltered traditional German weiss beer. Malty wheat bouquet brimming with clove and apple aromas. Wheat and barley balanced by imported German Tettnanger hops. The finish is smooth and refreshing.

Tasted from a 12oz bottle sent to me as an extra in a trade. Pours hazy light orange with a thin lace white head that dissipates quickly. The nose is classic clove and banana yeast with a hint of sweet wheat malt. The flavor features the sweetness a little more with the same expected banana and clove flavors. The body is medium with light, but stinging carbonation and a medium sticky banana finish. There is also a hint of nuttiness on the "extended" finish.

Bottle from Half Time. Pours hazy gold with a large foamy off-white head. Aroma is clove. Med body; foamy carb. Flavor is primarily clove. Itís certainly not a dull beer. Seems to have grassish hop bitter. Finishes dryish.

Lively slightly hazy pale yellow, big white head goes away very very quickly... Spicy wheaty aroma with no real big fruity esters at all, a touch medicinal, and a touch of pepper... Spicy finish, some pepper, no real fruits until it warms to reveal the slightest banana and citrus notes... Dry lively lingering pepper/spice, not heavy at all...

12oz Bottle at the Hyatt Regency - New Brunswick, NJ. Nice juicy banana and clove aroma, a bit strong and Americanized, but still of a decent character and enjoyable. Pours a well-hazed lemon yellow with a nice off-white head. Flavors are rich and deep. Lots of estery and phenolic yeast, some chewy wheat, and a nice decoction-mash like texture. Rich, but not cloying. It has a few loose edges, as the yeast profile is a little too strong and the overall quality of the beer is a little past peak, so I donít perceive it as being as good as the other Ramstein wheats, but still pleasant.

Sample at the brewery. Hazy golden hue with a banana, spices and yeast in the nose and on the palate. Classic, tasty heffe.

Draft. Pours hazy yellow with a thin head. Sweet wheaty aroma with banana notes and a bit of a candy-like sweetness. The flavor is wheaty and fruity sweet, with banana, a hint of clove, and a light bubblegummy note. Decent.

blutt59 (5999) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2010
bottle, slight hazy golden pour with some white foam, aroma and flavor are a mix of fake banana and bubblegum, very artificial tasting with a decent lasting finish

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2010 Very cloudy orange yellowish pour in the glass. Full of distinct nose of nuts, flowers, resins, herbs and toast. Taste is a banana wheat. Body is a little on the light side. Rated 12/30/99 I should point out that this is one of the most inconsistent beers Iíve ever had. Iíve had batches of it that Iíd rate as low as 2.0. My rating above is the beer in itís heyday many years ago.

Absolutely fabulous Hefeweizen, and the best domestic beer of NJ. Good balance with clove vs apple on the aroma and weaving like the soloists in Bachís Double Violin Concerto atop a cantus firmus of malt and a bit--just the right amount--of hops. Stellar; well done! (OT)
