4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 16.9 oz. bottle into a weizen glass.
Pours a hazy golden color with a 4 finger frothy white head. Very nice lacing.
Smell: Lemon, wheat, clove, banana and spices. Very strong aroma.
Taste: Clove and banana up front followed by bread and spices in the middle and ending with a light hoppy bitterness. Aftertaste is semi-dry with hints of banana.
Mouthfeel: Light-to-medium-bodied with a decent amount of carbonation. A little slick feeling on the tongue.
Drinkability: Excellent drinkability. The alcohol is well masked so you could knock back a couple pints without much trouble.
Overall: Excellent beer overall. Another fine offering from the world’s oldest brewery.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from John’s Grocery, Iowa City
Ar: Big fruity weizen nose. Lots of banana with a bit of bubblegum and some spice.
Ap: Pours a very cloudy orange-straw with a pillowy weizen head that dissipates somewhat quickly.
T: Sweet on the nose, with a light tart bite on the finish. Nicely balanced, maybe a touch too sweet.
P: Semi-thick, highly carbonated body. A bit sticky on the tongue, but not in a bad way.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Key Foods, Brooklyn 500ml ($4): Really vividly white head with a cloudy yellowish body. Really spicy aroma, of I guess cloves and the like along with the fruity elements. Taste is on the sweet side of things... very fruity with citrus and banana notes. Quite spicy, but well balanced. Alcohol covered very well. Creamy and not too much carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle courtesy of fata2683. Thanks Keith. Pours a cloudy dark yellow color with a big fluffy white head that has great retention and ample lacing. The aroma is moderate in strength with wheat bread, bubblegum and banana. The flavor is similar to the nose with wheat flavors dominating, add a touch of clove and you get the whole picture. The palate is creamy and full with soft carbonation. The finish is long with lingering banana and light cloves. Overall: A first rate weizen bock, I loved it.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The 500 mL bottle yields a hazy amber beer with an enormous, bright white, long-lasting head. This Weizen has a bountiful citrus-floral aroma and the advertised full-bodied backbone. Palate entry is mildly sweet, with the expected citrus-floral notes, and the addition of some clove and banana zest prior to a long, well balanced finish. I was surprised by the fairly tame carbonation level and the well-disguised 7% ABV. This is a great beer.

bottle pours hazy yellow/orange with a tall white head. Aroma is beautiful, floral, spicy yeast, wheat, cereal malts, orange peel. Flavor is rich sweet wheat, clove, banana, bubblegum, bazooka Joe all over the place. Really a great beer, refreshing, flavorful, and overall awesome.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle. Nose is spice and tropical fruit; esters evident. Pours a hazy gold with a head that just will NOT go down. Definite wheat beer elements on the palate, but there’s a bockesque roasty note that counters nicely. Palate could be a little crisper. Good, but I still like Korbinian better.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle in a Weizen glass. Pours opaque golden with a lingering, white head. Aroma of the spiciness of the wheat and some light malts. Flavor sort of bland, with a little alcohol in the finish. A decent beer, but not the best offering from this brewery.
