3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Served at an Italian place in Garmisch. Usual strong notes of banana and sweet spices, perhaps exaggerated by the setting. Dark hazy yellow, had to taste to make sure I didn’t get the dunkel version. Sweet fruity taste, mildly spicey, although as with many hefes the taste does hold up to the aroma. Medium bodied, creamy feel with some zest and kick.
Bottle from Appellation Wines Comely Bank.
Appearance - cloudy yellow brown with a very generous head, as expected from Hefeweizen.
Nose - light banana, pineapple and slight funkiness.
Taste - dry banana and pineapple. Candied lemon on the finish. A hint of nutmeg.
Palate - close to medium bodied. Tangy and creamy through the middle and end sections.
Overall - decent example of the style. Piepenhenrich (1230) - Steinbach, GERMANY - OCT 12, 2017

On tap. Quite clear golden color for a hefeweizen, white head. Aroma has the typical yeast esters, banana being the most prominent. Taste starts slightly sweet with clean wheat malt and banana. Finish is more balanced but there is also a slight cardboard note. Medium body and carbonation. Not bad but it’s really generic and mediocre. minutemat (6063) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2016
500ml bottle. Pours hazy gold, medium white head that persists. Aroma is soft banana. Taste is initially murky banana yeast & light cloves that fade with faint metallic and cardboard notes taking their place. Its hefeweizen yeast does stick around but it seems a little tired. Not a great example of the style. zvsn (2307) - ISRAEL - JUL 31, 2016
