Bottle. Aroma is enveloping and soft, with lots of banana and vanilla. Flavors of lemon, banana, wheat, and yeast. Light, sweet, balanced, and a touch of dryness - an outstanding weizen.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2006 50cl bottle. Poured murky yellow-tan (not a terribly appetizing color) into a footed pilsner glass with a huge foamy white head. Aroma is primarily yeast and DMS, with some banana apparent only immediately after the pour. Flavor is yeasty and grainy with definite DMS, though the latter is quite well-controlled. Definite clove note in some sips though not in others. Lightly bitter. Longish finish with bubblegum, then banana, then some sweetness coming through in layers. A little thin on the palate, but crisp, lively, and refreshing. Highly drinkable. Definitely the best of the three bottled hefeweizens I have tried recently (Franziskaner and Paulaner are the others) and the only one I would consider buying again.
