chickenflea (351) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2014
On tap at Redlight Redlight. Color a little dark. Rich creamy head. Good aroma. Taste’s too sweet, almost cloying as it warmed. The balance of banana to clove was good, but too much sweetness spoiled the refreshing quality of this style. Body was medium heavy. Good carbonation. A good hefe but just a little too heavy.

On tap at Craft Beer Market in Vancouver. An opaque amber orange beer with a moderate white head and a slightly fruity nose. Notes of dried fruit and banana, a hint of clove and a trace of malt perhaps. No bitterness detected here. Duly noted it’s a Top 50 for German Hefeweizen, but there are more enjoyable German wheat beers in my opinion. 3.6

Drinked on tap at Pedavena pub in Levico. On the nose is a tipical Weisse, but there is a big presence of farmy notes, seems sour. In mouth is medium light bodied, same sensation and caratteristic. Seems a farmhouse Weisse and is something that personally I really like but I would like to try somewhere else ready to modify my rating.

Thanks Massimo for this bottle and I tried this beer at several opportunities and the last time was yesterday with Massimo at home before that he goes definitely to Italy. I put the note of 4. I think that it is a reference of a hefeweizen and the price is really cheap for the quality that you could get. Bavaria, the eternity of the beers, the time goes ahead but you stay in this human world. The body is brown and orange, white and brown foam, solid. The carbonation is regular. The taste has generous notes of wheat, banana, plum, fruity and perfect union with the spring water of this region, some hop but it is discreet for the style. It is well balanced during all the sips, I just love this Land for the beershunter.

Tap at Spritzenhaus 33 in Greenpoint NYC. Nice hazy amber with lots of foam. Great hefeweizen taste. Notes of banana, citrusy fruits and some earthy tones. Superbly drinkable. Great example of the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
