3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle from some liquor store in Indiana that I can’t remember at the moment (August 2008), consumed a little below cellar temp from a Weihenstephan weizen glass. Pours a proper massive off-white head that at first fills 90% if the glass, but quickly the hazy golden liquid starts peeking out, and the top of the head starts to slowly fade, leaving fine spots of lace....nose is rather sweet and light, caramelized bananas and little spice, though pleasant enough; some cookie dough/graham cracker notes as well..... the body is soft and doughy, not unpleasant at all, but pretty lacking in the tartness and crispness that I want in a hefe, with carbonation really low and an almost syrupy quality evident even when the beer is fairly cold....drinkable, but unquestionably one of the weaker German examples of the style I’ve tasted.

Hazy yellow to orange, strong white head. Aroma spicy and bready but on the weaker side. Taste sweet bread, cloves, bit acid, but again fairly weak. body is light and watery. Too light and weak and missing the banana punch for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
This lightly acidic Weissbier shines through floral arrangements and banana esters, while herbal hops and wheat blades offer depth.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the cloudy yellow.
-The mild acidity increases drinkability.
-The big bubbles are expected, but almost get in the way for some reason.
-This is quite refreshing.
On tap at the kloster.

Quite fizzy, fruit salad, orange peel, vanilla, mild tart, sweet candy finish. Decent fruity weizen, maybe a tad too sweet and light-bodied.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep amber orange, hazy with a whitish head. Smooth, malty, a bit of orange and spice. Not bad, but not too memorable.

It’s a pretty good tasting beer from Belgium. Of course, I’m not at all familiar with the Northern European styles of beer, so I have no idea what it should taste like, or what I am tasting in the first place.

Refrigerated 0.5 L brown bottle poured into a weizen glass. Pours hazy golden with small white head. Aroma is light clove, medium body, lower carbonation, and little big bubble lacing. Taste is some clove, wheat, some banana. Pretty good, but may be old.
