3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16.9oz bottle-pours a big foamy to thin white head and slightly hazy yellow color. Two surprises-the white head and the yellow color. Aroma is bubble gum, yeast, floral/spicy-coriander/pepper hops, secondary husky light malt. Not sure it will be one I’ll like but a lot going on and interesting. Taste is nice medium/light malt/wheat/husky/caramel, bubble gum, yeast, floral/spicy-coriander/pepper, grassy hops, secondary husky light malt. Smooth, medium body, which is a surprise from the appearance and aroma. Good effervescence.

Bottle. Clear, light colored, huge white head. Lighter than expected color. Yeast, grain like aroma. Flavor is okay, improves with time; wheat notes softening up but is just average. Basically a decent hefeweizen.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Expecting this to look different for some reason. Pours nice slightly hazy golden with delicious and booming white head. Yeasty fruity notes indicate the nose, banana plums and subtle clove spices, ...The body is a lot more spicey, than the nose ( a good thing in my book,) and a tad yeasty and leaves a lingering funky sourness, which is pleasing. Nice mouthfeel and very drinkable. A good example of one of my favorite styles.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Cloudy golden colour with a big white head. Aroma is big and warm, with banana and yeast and a nice hint of lemon. Full mouthfeel. Flavour of a really solid weiss on steroids - everything tastes great, and there’s more of it. Finish is dry and warm, with some herbal hops and a bit of alcohol. Another Weihenstephan winner.
