3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloves, bubblegum, and bananas in the aroma. Substantial head, very cloudy. Flavor balance is slightly sweet, but very close to even. Light graininess/wheat. Soem fruity/bubblegum esters. Very high carbonation, light body. A very good German wheat beer.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2003 Very similar to Paulaner with a slightly lighter wheat taste (which is still strong) and a beautiful finish. It provides an excellent example of how a wheat beer should taste in every respect.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Excellent wheat. Nice, thick pour with an everpresent pure white head with heavy lacing. Yeasty aroma of bananas and flowers. Detect bananas in the flavor as well with a bit of bubblegum in the aftertaste. Nice light orange cloudy appearance. Very refreshing - could envision quaffing down several of these at the beach. Probably on of the best Wheats I have had yet.

Overall this is a well balanced and decent example of the style. This version has the clove spice much more subtle than the Franziskaner that I found undrinkable. Still not a fan of the style because of the cloves, but at least with this one I could finish the glass.

Drinking these much heralded wheat beers in February might be the problem, but I ended up not thinking either this or Aventinus was the cat's meow. This one is the better of the two, far less anoying esterily, with more complex and less aggressive counterpoints (lemonsmoke, clean malts, cloves).

I love this wheat beer. What can I say, cloudy yellow colour with hints of white, huge sudsy head with good retention. Spicey banana aroma and flavour. Smooth full body.
