TAR (2497) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Draught at Spezial in Nov. 2011: Pale pumpkin orange. Persistent fluffy white head. Peppery and airy phenolics comprise the pleasant nose along with puttylike yeast, banana bread, lemon, peach, pineapple upside-down cake. Soft and creamy carbonation. Spiced peaches and puttylike yeast pervade the initial sip. Tasty snap of dry malt fuses with the airy palate-scrubbing phenols as a delicate cookie sweetness provides depth and sturdiness to the slick, yeasty body. Ample wheat-derived starches add considerable fluff beneath the crisper and nuttier Munich. Floral hop succulence infuses the center with luscious nectar. Appetizing citrus acids enliven the sparkling attenuation. Closes very dry, cleanly malty and piecrusty, with an emerging banana cream pie and spiced peach fusion. Features all the elements that I look for in the style…dry yet juicy, bright acids, clean malt, polished flowery hops, and most importantly, very nice balance. It’s not at all unusual to find high-quality weissbier in lager-dominant Franconia, and here is another testament to that. A very well constructed weissbier from the lager specialists.

Cloudy old gold; thick white pillowy head; typical aroma of wheat and banana; taste is also straight-down-the-line traditional wheat beer - banana, a little clove; maybe a little smoke too; this was overcarbonated for me, the fizziness spoiling things; it’s ok, perhaps the wrong time of year for it.

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - SEP 24, 2013
Hellorangenes HW mit flüchtigem Schaum. Nelkig-bananiges Aroma mit feiner Rauchnote im Hintergrund. Im Geschmack ist der Rauch deutlich zu erschmecken und ergänzt die Gewürznelke ganz vorzüglich. Selbst im relativ langen Abgang schmeckt man Bambergs Rauch. Ein echtes Charakter-Weizen!
