Great head, and sweet lemon grass smell, this beer was a little sweeter than most hefeweizens, and a little bit hard to drink due to the overpowering sweetness, but still preferable to most beer in general

(bue sur place): Un nez agréable d’épices à gâteau et d’une douceur provenant de l’apparence de banane. Le corps est évidemment mince et la finale sèche mais on est loin d’un fiasco faible en alcool.

My Bottom Line:
Mild caramel and cloves rise from this Leicht Weissbier’s bubbly mouthfeel, building a refreshing though forgettable pint.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the cloudy beige.
-Drinkability is high, but mostly due to the body’s dryness.
-Banana esters are surprisingly low in this version.
-Like in many German ’leicht’ or ’alkoholfrei’ brews, the nose conveys ’beer’, but the flavor profile cannot follow up. Oh well, I’m not going to get pregnant any time soon.
On tap at their restaurant in Freising.

Pours a cloudy yellow with a foamy, white head. Nose is like a sweet banana candy. Taste is similar to the smell. Sweet and candy-like. Medium body. Vigorous carbonation. Decent beer.

500ml thanks to djoeye for sharing. A wheat haze to a golden body. Two-finger sized white head that lasts throughout. Fair lacing. Sweet fruity nose, spiced with clove and coriander. Apple fruity taste joined late banana, spices and wheat . Harsh, short-lived dry fruit ending. A bit thin in the mouth, but quite alright to drink (Tromsø 10.11.2013)
