COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Delicious lemon and vanilla scented wheat beer with yeast. This is an aristocratic beer with a champagne sparkle and a beautifully sustained head. With the pale color of mountain honey and tart refreshing palate, it is a "brut" beer with the delicious, complex fruitiness of extra-dry champagne. Bottle conditioned and top fermented, it is a benchmark for this style of beer. The nose is fruity-spicy, herbaceous with lots of flowers, and fruit. With such a creamy head, you can build miniature mountains that resemble the Alps. Pour slowly, fill the special weissbier glass half full and swirl the bottle on the table to put the yeast in suspension.

6/30/07 On Draught at the Seattle International Beerfest. Aroma is sour malt forward, wheat, peppery with some plasticy esters that are not objectionable for some reason. Appearance is cloudy straw yellow with a low white head. Flavor is sweet bubblegum, clovey with orange with a clean finish. Mouthfeel is light bodied with a slight starchiness. Overall, this is a great complex beer that is surprisingly easy drinking for all the flavor packed in.

This is a summer beer you can drink any time. The citrus flavor is not overpowering but it’s there. Drink it freely, as long as you are not driving.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2008 between this beer and paulaner’s hefe you cannot go wrong. if you like the style, this beer just about sets the standard. perhaps just a little sweeter than the paulaner. a fantasitc beer made for the summer time, although I still think Paulaner is the best Hefe made.

jujubeast6000 (854) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 30, 2007
(500mL bottle): Pours a very pale cloudy yellow body, big foamy white head, lasting. Fresh hay aroma, malts, some light fruit, like grapefruit. Light taste, watery, light malty aftertaste. Spicy, lemony taste, similar to the aroma. A little weakish & thin, but nice taste.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - JUL 29, 2007
Draft-A cloudy yellow hue with a white head, with great retention. A heavy malt aroma lemons and bread. Flavor was sweet at first, but grew very lemony and finished with a slight spice note. Very heavy, and at times gassy.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 27, 2007
Bottle. Nose is citric sourness, yeast and lemon. Cloudy pale yellow with no head. Smooth and clean palate with some sharpness. Flavor is underpronounced citrus, but nice. All around a refreshing hefe with a clean palate, slightly lacking in flavor.

4.1
afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2007
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden with a large rocky white head that lasts leaving good lacing. Aroma of wheat, citrus, bananas, yeast, vanilla, and clove. Taste is the same as aroma with a mild spicy tart finish. Medium mouthfeel thats slightly creamy and well carbonated. A very well done Hefeweizen perfect for a hot Florida Summer day.

Foggy, golden appearance with a large, fluffy,white head and decent lacing. Wheaty aroma accented with banana, clove and lemon. Yeasty, wheaty, fruity, mildly sweet flavors; muted hops; some spicyness and tartness in the aftertaste. Creamy, medium-bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel. Smooth, fruity, long lasting finish.

From a bottle pours a slightly hazy light amber color with lots of fluffy head. Very light flavor not at all overpowering, very refreshing.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2007 Forse dovrei fare un secondo assaggio, ma non mi ha convinto proprio per niente; poco, poco, poco, poco, poco, e un retrogusto paludoso che mi ha lasciato decisamente perplesso. Bevuta al Black Sheep a Brescia, pagata 4.50; non sapevo che mi avrebbero portato perché nella lista c’era scritto solo Weisse.
