sloghtly cloudy, aggressive carbonation. huge white top. Esters dominate, phenols play back up. plenty of wheat, smooth, creamy. effervescence breaks the cloying, creamy mouthfeel to give a clean, drier finish. this is a classic

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a coudy, bubbly, orangish yellow hue, crowned by an abundant white head. Fruity, citrusy nose with a good bit of yeast. Flavors are excellent, with a sweet wheaty flavor up front, followed by a nice banana note and giving way to a faint vanilla finish. All that and a great, effervescent, sparkly mouthfeel. My favorite weizen to date.

An excellent German beer, probably one of the best I have ever had. From beginning to end, it is truly an experience. It really has unique flavoring. Also it’s impressive I am drinking from the "world’s oldest brewery". A great beer, try this yeasty gem. I am just loving the aftertaste, I feel like I am enjoying the best wheat available!

Another fine Hefe. Tastes very similar to the Franziskaner, in my opinion. Very fruity and sweet. Beautiful color and nice frothy white head. Very smooth.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle - Hazy yellow/golden hue and makes a thick white head. Pleasant aroma, lots of banana and citrus in the nose, and fresh cut flowers. The flavor is sweet and malty with accents of banana and has a very spicy crisp finish. Palate is medium to full and carbonated perfectly. Very smooth finish. An excellent hefe.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Highly efferevescent, cloudy yellow, big head that is gone in seconds, bubbles still dancing about though. Aroma is a touch sweet, long aftertaste, lightly bitter. Initial flavours fruity and sour. Very light mouthfeel, fizzy without any acid. Overall very nice.
