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.

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - MAR 7, 2011
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 500ml bottle into a tall weizen glass. The abv is listed on the back label (5.1%) but there is no freshness date. Appearance: The body has an orange/yellow color with a cloudy haze and some visible carbonation. On top I got a thick and creamy off white head. It is long lasting and makes slick lace ring which slowly slide down the sides of the glass. Smell: The aroma has notes of sweet bubble gum and banana peel with just a light touch of wheat malt. Taste/Palate: The flavor is not as sweet as the aroma foreshadowed. Tangy wheat meets the tongue first with a light clove banana yeast notes following. A touch of citrus and spicy/leafy hops leads into the finish which is crisp and fairly dry. The firm medium body has plenty of active carbonation give it a lively snappy texture. Notes: I love the texture and finish on this beer. Some German Hefeweizen beers get a little to slick on the palate but this one is crisp and feels alive with carbonation. Overall this is an outstanding Hefeweizen.

Foamy golden pour out of bottle. Malty cereal notes of hay and grass and yeast. On the palate smooth and supple and well made. Nothing spectacular but this goes down like silk. Balance is impeccable.

herrklemann (152) - AUSTRIA - FEB 25, 2017
Bottle from SinH4. Many thanks!
Pours a nice, murky orange with a big white head. Aroma is dominated by a play between fruit (banana and orange) and perfume-y floral notes. Distinct wheat notes, a bit grainy, with vanilla and cloves. Taste is medium sweet, slightly tart, lightly bitter. Very refreshing. Creamy, medium body with lively but soft carbonation.
A very refreshing Hefeweizen. Nice and clean, definitely high quality stuff. Not watery, with the distinct something in the play of aroma and taste. GREAT mouthfeel.

It’s my five year anniversary for joining RateBeer, so I thought to celebrate this great feat by having a style I rarely rate. In five years, I’ve come around to really appreciate all styles for what they are, rather than focus on my original love of IPAs and Stouts. I’ve come a long way. Anyway. Aroma is clove, wheat, banana, fruity, slight hop, eh. Appearance is golden, hazy, white head. Taste is wheat, fruity, slight banana and clove, earthy hop, good. Mouthfeel is light body, light crisp carbonation, wheat and hop aftertaste. Overall, I was expecting this to be not great by the aroma, but the banana and clove are dialed back to let the wheat shine in this. Well done for a style I typically avoid.

bastarda (483) - Freiburg, GERMANY - FEB 16, 2017
on [email protected]; unripe banana accompanied by traces of nutmeg and cloves on a yoghurtlike undercurrent of refreshing almost-tartness; quite a dry finish; flawless and totally balanced.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2017 Pours a hazy yellow with a medium sized head. Aroma is of spice with banana in the back. Taste follows the nose. Overall this is a good beer I just wish the banana flavor came out a bit more.

Boca 0,5L- ravno iz ’obećane zemlje’...odlično pivo, mala zamjerka ide mirisu ali zato je okusom odlično, nevjerovatno pitko, usklađeno, ima sve što jedan hefe-weizen mora imati...
