Bottle (12oz). Classic - label says "contains malt liquor" - yee haw! Pours very hazy yellow with a huge lasting off-white head. Aroma of candy malt, tons of yeast, banana, lemon and more than a little slightly sour cream, with pungent spices drawing it all together - really interesting. Taste of spices, banana, yeast, sugary malt, lemon juice and dry wood, almost like bubblegum in the finish, really well done - mouthfeel is fairly thick, a little acidic, almost sticky, with decent carbonation and a shifting, dancing yeastiness on the tongue - I see why this is so highly rated, complex, refreshing, not overly demanding but a great quaffer.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2006 Bottle. Poured yellow-gold with a white head. Strong wheat, banana, and clove smell. Taste is the same as the smell however personally I can taste clove more than anything. Tastes like a clove cigarette to me. Not my favorite style of beer but better than other hefeweizens I have tried in the past.

Large yeasty taste with strong hint of citrus. Aroma was fairly strong. Carbonation was a little more than I expected. Still a great beer...would much prefer the Ayinger Hefe beer though

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Gold and hazy in colour with strong carbonation. Typical hefeweizen aromas of vanilla, clove, banana, and a bit of citrus. Nice tangy wheat flavor, with more vanilla and banana in the mouth. A bit of spicy hops on the finish too. Very nice full mouthfeel that still refreshes. Definitely more on the vanilla/clove end of the spectrum, with the fruity notes being held in check. Classy.
