Fairly deep color for a wheat. Frothy off-white head. Strong banana prescence. Nice mouthfeel, medium to full body. Very drinkable and enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled, at the Wenlock Arms,
Its at this point things start to go slightly awry. Marcus, the mad beer lovin’ German from The Masque Haunt walks in. It’s only his 2nd time here. He insists that I have a Weiss beer with him. I try to resist, sighting my plan and the fact you can drink from a bottle any old day, but seeing the passion in this guys heart for Weiss beer had to comply. Served in its own class Marcus turned the serving of the beer into a show. Swirling the last tenth of a beer around in the bottle and acrobatically serving it like a cocktail. Murky brown with a big fluffy head. It was a bit like drinking lemon-scented-gravel. Complex and complete, for the weiss beer lovers this must be heaven but I was looking forward to the IPA. 4 of 7.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: (maybe old?) Deep golden color. Small white head with next to no retention. Little fruity nose. Nice flavor - fairly pronounced banana. Good beer, but based on my purchased single I prefer the Franziskaner.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft. Very complex wheat. Not pale and retiring at all. Amber alish in color. Slight taste of the residue from a bubblegum wrapper (not that that makes sense). A great beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light brown color. Large head. Aroma is malty, sweet and fruity. A medium to full bodied hefe. Malts are wheaty, slightly roasted and sweet. Hops are somewhat spicy. Touch of banana and clove as well as spices. A very nice beer. Much darker than I was expecting, Very fine carbonation, nearly champagne like. Very drinkable. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice Greman wheat beer. Brew pours up light brown with significant head. Head almost completly dissipates and there is little or no lacing. Very nice malty, yeasty, clove aroma. There is a ton of floaters in this beer, almost to the point I was ready to break out a strainer. Nice flavor, sweet apples. Does have a dry, champagne type of finish. Quite good.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy almost amber color with huge head and some lacing, bigger body than most weizens. Nice aroma of banana, sour apple, bread dough, and a hint of clove. Wonderful tartness and a fizzy mouthfeel, very refreshing, very underrated hefe, my second favorite just a nudge under Ayinger.

Hazy copper, big light head, banana aroma with citrus fruits and cloves. Wheat acidity, sugar-free banana bread, a hint of bubblegum, just a bit tart, really refreshing.

Head drops off quickly, aroma of biscuits and grass. Wonderful light, refreshing with a nice bite. Not as fruity as I would like, but a nice beer.
