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.

Richer than some of its brethren, with expressive clove and citrus bouquet luring into moderate banana/fruit aroma and decent sweetness and body.

European Bottle Pour - Large white head atop a lovely bright amber body.. cloudy like a good weizen is *grin*. Head lasts for a good while..several swigs. Aroma - light banana, flowery with a few spices thrown in. Taste - More distinct banana and spices dominate the initial sweetness. Dries on the finish with a slight bitterness. Light body... closer to a Kristalweizen in that respect... not quite so heavy. Very tasty. Nicely done!

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2006 On tap at Firkins, Libertyville, IL and bottled version from Armanetti’s, Mundelein, IL. Tried tap and bottled versions –both equally great but tap version slightly more flavorable and aromatic. Cloudy dark yellow hued wheat bear having long-lived large white creamy head. Intense spicy, citrusy, flowery hoppy aroma. Light-to-medium bodied that starts with light sweet and tart malty flavor with slight hop flavor and quickly finishes dry with light hoppiness. No discernable bitterness. A very little aftertaste. A very enjoyable, refreshing wheat beer, one of my favorites. I can drink this every day and never get tired of it.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2005 Lots of carbonation, head didn’t last so long for me unfortunately. Smells of citrus and wheat. Tastes of yeast and lemon and wheat and a little spice. Does have some tart in the finish. This is an ok beer, but not one of my favorites. I was disappointed considering all the good reviews and the high ratings for this beer. *Edit: 11/28/2005:* tried this beer again and it was better than it was previously. Maybe I got a bad bottle. Now the spices are a little more pronounced, getting a nice clove/coriander type of spicy taste. Something odd about the taste though. It has a really earthy type of taste to it. Still pretty tart though, and tons of carbonation this time around. Not bad, but there are others I like more than this one.

Pours murky yellow with lots of bubbles and a thick white head that lasts for a long time. Yeasty and floral aroma with scents of honey, wheat bread, banana, and citrus. Refreshing flavor features tropical fruits along with the citrus, vanilla, and a hint a spices. Has a creamy texture but it is also quite thin and light-bodied. Slight amount of sweetness and not as much carbonation as I was expecting from the pour. Has a crisp, clean, dry finish with no bitterness or sourness. This will make for a good refreshing summer beer out on the beach.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 20, 2005
Cloudy yellow body, thick creamy and tall white head. Dusty old banana and sweet wheat aroma. Sweet, candy-like banana bread and a little lemon essence.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - OCT 13, 2005
Pours a cloudy pale gold with a large, fine bubbly white head that lasts forever. Fruity nose followed by complex flavor of clove, citrus, and yeast. Light body, but excellent mouthfeel. Tart finish with light hop bitterness. One of the best hefeweizens out there. I love this beer.

Bottle. Cloudy gold with a large white head. Aroma has wheat, cloves, fruit and banana. Highly carbonated, crisp and refreshing. Nice sweet/bitter balance, citrusy and spicey. A superior Hefeweizen.
