This must be an acquired taste by Americans for a fizzy, candy Weis beer. It doesn’t compare with anything traditional in the Bavarian Weizen family. Sierra Nevada has done a good job in marketing to the taste of the coeds in Chico. And this one is an American invention.

Jaune brumeux avec un tête moyen qui rétréci assez vite pour le style. L’arôme des clous de girofle, agrumes et levure. Le goût est similar. Très bon mais pas un hefe de première qualité.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2014/08/29 - Pours a hazy yellow/orange colour with foamy white head that quickly reduces to a lingering surface film. No lacing. Aroma is wheat, yeast, dough, bubblegum, bananas, citrus and spice. Taste is wheat, yeast, banana, orange & lemon citrus, clove, coriander and white pepper. Mouthfeel is medium and silky, with lively carbonation and a slightly spicy, mildly drying finish. Pretty good, but nothing exceptional.

Pours cloudy amber with quite a large amount of head. Not a huge aroma, suited to the hefeweizen style though. Very smooth on the palate, with lemon hit lolling down to a fruity aftertaste. A well balanced beer.

Golden, opaque, medium/large foamy white head. Aroma of yeast, wheat, citrus, floral hops. Taste sweet with a really well balanced, light sour and light bitter finish. Smooth, thick oily texture, low/medium carbonation. Really nice hefeweizen. Great beer.

Light overall taste. Nice golden color with little head when poured. Nice banana notes on the finishing end, but doesn’t linger too much on the palate.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a glowing, slightly hazy orange-amber body. A foamy, one finger wide head slowly collapses to a fine lacing.
Has a satisfying nose, full of yeast, hay, clove, cinnamon and hints of lactic acid, enjoyable balance between soft and spicy elements.
Dough, white-bread yeast up front, soon joined by a flavorful spiciness of cloves and orange peel. The spices add to the smooth yeast impression as does the tingling carbonation. The wheat profile gets pleasantly subdued by a floral hop bite, which defines the finish by a slick slighty bitterness.

0.355l bottle. This is a cloudy good looking weiz. A bug fluffy head located on the top - bright white in color and the beer has the correct orangey look as well. Lots of wheat sweetness on the nose blended with the sweet ripe banana, eastery yeastery, orange zest and traces of cloves and white pepper. Just like it should smell! Easy light wheat flavors. It’s not thin or watery in the mouth and the bubbles ate sharp but about average. Lightdrinkable and quite refreshing to drink. The wheat sweetness shines through and it is again quite banana infused in the taste. Slightly peppery tail. Yeah, a really good non complicated heffe weiz. 17.05.2014
