3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed 3/6/13. This was probably the first beer I bought that I truly loved, so I’ve been meaning to revisit this one for a long time. 12 oz bottle into a weizen glass.
A: Pours a darker amber color that seems both less hazy and fizzier-looking than others in the style. The head is a beautiful five-finger pale cream color. It has one of the softest-looking textures I’ve ever witnessed in ANY beer head, and retains itself reasonably.
S: This one is relatively clove-forward, with the general malts being the secondary aromatic feature. It seems like this one comes off ’drier’ than most.
T: Differing from the nose, the flavor itself is quite banana-forward to start. The banana esters will fade to a midtaste/finish of lactic cream, wheat, and cloves. No real depth here, just a solid no-frills hefeweizen.
M: I wondered if the feel would be dry due to the lack of a sweet nose - and I was wrong. This is a creamy, semi-sweet weizen, and pulls it off well. The thickness of the texture conceals the high carbonation somewhat, but as the carbonation fades, it seemingly becomes dry - very nearly to the point of being watery. On the plus side, it becomes more drinkable this way.
O: I don’t know if this is quite the beer I fell in love with...ah well, it’s still good stuff. And it’s available practically everywhere to boot.

That beautiful German wheat beer aroma that’s so familiar yet not entirely describable. Cloudy medium pale yellow with a dense and persistent but small white head. Nice light banana flavor and light allspice/clove flavor of German hefeweizen with a good toasted malt background. Just enough mushroomy/earthy noble hop bitterness to balance out the light sweetness. A light bread yeast character presides throughout the taste in elegant fashion. Body has a light creaminess but it melts away to a more watery consistency. Finishes smooth and creamy with a lasting banana ester essence. A quintessential German Hefeweizen. Happy German Beer Day 2017 everyone!!

Presenta un colore oro torbido con un bouquet di odori richiamanti il frumento e la banana. Il sapore viaggia sugli stessi binari dei profumi e una buona frizzantezza con una leggera punta di amaro le conferisco un gusto sapido che appaga dal primo all’ultimo sorso.
