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.

Took a bit to find my Weizen but it was worth it, what an appealing looking beery. Hazy golden yellow with a very noisy frothy head. Really strong citrus, cinnamon and chive in the nose. Very mellow with a complex pallet. Waves of taste. Very well balanced. Now this is what a Hefeweizen should taste like. Refreshing, wet and easy to drink. Not nearly as spicy as the nose would indicate. Really smooth. Citrus, a touch of chives and a hint of Banana. Wishing I had bought more than one of this. Fantastic.

Ładnie prezentujące się piwo, jasno żółte lekko mętne z wysoką pianą. Aromat głównie owocowy banany, gruszki trochę cytryny. W smaku podobnie lekko pikantne, jedwabiste. Bardzo dobre

Tap. Pours hazy yellow, large white head, good lacing. Aroma is wheat, banana, hints of clove and lemon, a bit of dust. Flanks is light sweet, minimal bitterness, super drinkable. Light plus body, soft creamy mouthfeel. One of the best.

Bottle. Hazy golden body with a small white head. Aroma is refreshing with a fine combination of citric fruit, lemon, banana, cloves and wheat. Flavor is refreshing as well, light wheat, slightly lemon acidic, citric fruit, sweet banana, hint of honey, spicy like cloves and spicy yeast. Medium body and fine, long lasting aftertaste. A classic German hefe – the original hazy!

The nose is great with bananas, pears, strawberries, a bit of lemon zest and yeast. Some grains also, but very pleasantly introduced. Tart refreshing and quite complex, taste follows the nose with honey on top. Spicy, fruity and with a silky, creamy body, this is one of the best weizens I've ever had. Much appreciated.

Very fluffy a bit short lasting high foam. A very yellow colour for Hefeweizen. Smells not typical for Weizen: lemon, banana. A bit of coriander on a tongue,also grainy, citrus sub tastes. A very medium body, creamy, soft carbonation, long finish n a palate. Very drinkable and light and kind of "aristocratic" like in a description.

Very good, close to perfection. Nice blend of flavors, including but not limited to the obligatory hint of banana.

500ml bottle at home. Pours cloudy yellow-gold with a lasting, frothy white head. Wheat, lemon citrus, clove, banana, yeast. Light funk. Fizzy carbonation. Fruity wheaty finish. Refreshing and really tasty.
