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.

Tap at the Canal House. Pours cloudy pale gold with thin white broken lace. Aroma is indeed floral, herbal and spicy with a definite yeasty scent. Taste is medium sweet to sour. Palate is medium body, slick, fizzy, lively carbonation, but I don't know if I would describe the finish as either long or abrupt. One is left tingling.

Bottiglia 50 cL @ Valhalla Pub, Pavia. Colore giallo paglierino, torbida. Schiuma bianca soffice. Profumi delicati e tipici (pane, frumento, banana). Al palato è poco amara, acidula e frizzante. Dissetante.

corkyrory66 (2206) - BELGIUM - NOV 6, 2017
Hefeweizen de 5,1 % abv en format 50 cl. Mon exemplaire était à 6 mois avant sa date. Couleur jaune tendre avec un tout léger voile. Bulles très fines, en fontaine centrale, très vives. Mousse blanche, très épaisse, avec des cratères en haut, stable à 8 mm. Arômes de blé, amande, pointe de poire, baies blanches. 1ère bouche souple, à la très belle entame délicate malt/levure. Arrière-bouche avec des baies et une pointe de citron vert douce. 2ème avec beaucoup de fraîcheur, et une accentuation de la pointe citronnée. Arrière-bouche malgré tout assez ronde. 3ème où on poursuit assez semblablement. Arrière-bouche longue, plus dense. Longueur qui trouves des nuances plus maltées, mais avec un manque de complexité. Jambes fines, longues. Levure très belle, comme d'habitude. Alcool tout à fait valable, il peine pourtant à étoffer la longueur. Finale un peu faible. CONCLUSION : une bière qui paraît largement surcotée sur ratebeer .. Il faudrait peut-être voir si la version en tapped est plus convaincante ...(7/3/7/3/13)

Fra flaske på Mi2 Cardinal, okt-17: uklar strågul med kort skum. Blomster, bananer, kanel, vanilje, koriander og muskat. Frisk, krydret og svært lettdrikkelig. med en litt søtlig ettersmak.

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.
