Extra Hoppy Amber Weiss. Mahr’s master brewer has a new love -- an exciting and saucy new variety of Hallertauer hop called Saphir, German for "sapphire." There’s a metric ton of Saphir hops in this ground-breaking Weiss.

500ml brown bottle with no date. Says it is a extra hoppy amber hefeweizen utilizing the Saphir hop. Pours with a huge, uncontrollable white head that is slightly foamy. The body is an amber/gold that looks decently filtered. They head takes a long while to dissipate leaving some pretty nice lacing. On the second pour I swirled for yeast, even after a minute of swirling not all of it had come off the bottom- there is a lot of yeas hiding in this bottle. The smell is as one might guess, yeasty, with heavy spicy clove and a hint of banana, but there is also a nice grassy, herbal, and spicy hop presence that is welcome. The flavor is super-citrusy, almost like a witbier. Tons of lemon, almost tart. The clove makes a smaller appearance in the taste along with the wheat and a heightened bitterness form a normal Hefeweizen, though not at all super hoppy. The mouthfeel is highly carbonated and prickly, this makes it refreshing on a hot summer day. This is a great Hefeweizen right here, surprisingly it isn’t talked about much.

500ml bottle. Pours a hazy copper hue with a fizzy cream-colored head that disappeared completely within five seconds. Aroma of wheat, citrus, banana, allspice, caramel, clove notes. Taste follows nose.

Bottle. Pours a hazy copper color with a good sized head. Aroma of grain, yeast, banana and cloves. Taste of grain, banana, with a malt sweetness and bit of yeast. Mild bitterness and a fairly clean finish. Moderate body and quite smooth. Decent beer.

ttoadee (1491) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2016
Golden brown pour, quickly collapsing head. Nose is yeast and grain . Middle shows faint bananas, a little pear, faint wheat. Finish has a bittersweet nip to it. OK.

BVery (10501) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 7, 2016
Tap at Churchkey. Hazy golden pour with a white head. Banana esters and some yeast and clove on the nose. Slightly dry, slightly watery - this is okay.

Ernest (7694) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 21, 2016
Bottle (labeled as 5.5% now). Head is initially small, frothy, off-white to light brown, mostly/fully diminishing. Body is cloudy light to medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (basement), with notes of banana, gum, clove. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Not sure where the "metric ton" of hops went, but maybe it’s not a fresh sample (even though this has only now just arrived to my local for the first time that I’m aware of, so you’d think it’s a new batch). Clunky and syrupy-watery and dull, with a sad appearance (esp. for a Weissbier). I’m frequently disappointed by Mahr’s, and this is no exception.

KyotoLefty (10254) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 6, 2016
Bottle from BOTW. Orange=brown, cloudy, lace. Oxidized nose of chocolate, wheat, grassy hops. Tangy flavor, grassy hops, fruity, honey. This is probably way too old, but there is no drink-by date on it.

GenDV138 (7284) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JUL 19, 2016
4 oz pour on draft at ChurchKey. Opaque orange with off-white head. Aromas of malt, citrus, herbs. Tastes of malt, light lemon citrus, light herbs. Light body with a dry finish. Solid.

Tmoney99 (14460) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 14, 2016
Bottle. Poured an hazy orange amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate earthy floral hop and sweet malt, soft clove aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium spice sweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable beer.

DandyWolfFloyd (1202) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Aroma - some bubblegum and a bit of Hallertau hops, Appearance - amber body, with nice nucleation. When the bottom yeast is rolled in the body is cloudy. The head is white and about 3", frothy and settles slowly. Taste - nice caramel malt, bubblegum notes from the yeast, and Hallertau hops. The rolled in yeast adds some more bubblegum. Palate - body is light, the texture is slightly creamy, the carbonation soft, and the finish tangy
