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.

This is one of most pleasing beers I have ever had with superb champagne taste (to borrow the reference notes) in a Hefeweizen style. I admired the deep characteristics and quietly wished that I could brew something like this. Using the correct glassware makes a big difference with this ale for the sweet aroma and the narrowing taste.

As the description states, this beer does have a long-lasting fluffy white head. I detect no vanilla or fruit in the aroma, instead spicy. Like most things, it tastes like it smells - spicy. However, as far as "spicy" goes, it doesn’t overpower, and doesn’t linger with aftertaste. And in fact, though I don’t prefer spicy beers, this wasn’t bad at all. If I had to choose a spicy beer to drink I would probably select this one.
