3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Presentation: 500mL brown bottle, served in a weizen glass.
Appearance: Develops a two finger head that goes down a bit and then stays there. It has a cloudy, pale yellow color.
Smell: The aroma has a refreshing fruit zest character to it, of lemon mainly. There’s also faint malt, hop and yeast scents in the background.
Taste: Zesty citrus flavor mixed with some hop bitterness and a hint of malt sweetness. All of this followed up by a bit of yeast chalkiness in the background.
Mouthfeel: Dry, light, and refreshing, with little carbonation.
Overall: Just because it has a refreshing character, doesn’t mean it’s still not a flavorful beer. On the contrary, tt’s great because it’s versatile. You can just enjoy it on it’s own, and really get into it, or just sip on it to cool down without giving it much though. You can also have it with food and it won’t be a distraction, but it’ll be more interesting than your average ale or lager. Just a good all around beer.

DATE: August 26, 2017... OCCASION: another beautiful afternoon deserves a beer that says summer... GLASSWARE: Weihenstephan weizen... pours a dense, murky, carbonated lemon-yellow body (that oddly almost matches its label’s color)... four fingers of white froth sits thick as wet snow, with pockets of air trapped between the glass and the beer... banana and clove immediately, some noble hops that ping in a metallic remark, buttery biscuit, old vegetable, and sour dough... not the aroma I expected from a brewery at its craft since 1816--more like a draw... the mouthfeel is aided by its bright introduction, a creamy middle, and its hearty, lingering finish--tart, acidic, and reasonably substantial for a weizen... clove, banana, pear, and biscuit serve a fruity meal in and of itself... the earthy, almost dank vegetable couples with dish detergent lemon to counter the initial flavor profile... the result? A beer I find complimentary to the day, but in need of more pronounced, better balanced ingredients... refreshes, stays around, and treats you with a modicum of respect... maybe a victim of expectation? at $2.99 a 500ml bottle, not quite worth the return.... gripweed57 (2719) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUN 7, 2017
From old tasting notes.Cloudy deep gold color with lovely small bubble carbonation leading to a frothy white head. Faint lemon peel wheat nose. Light effervescent flavor upfront. Refreshing light flavor with a trace of citrus fruit character in the finish. Lacks the intensity or yeastiness. mariuszek (1457) - Gdynia, POLAND - APR 29, 2017
Very average weizen. Banana, cloves in the very background here. Wheat sourness dominates the profile. egajdzis (6672) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2017
Hazy golden color with a medium white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Clove, wheat, light banana, tart finish.

Hazy yellow-gold with a short lasting white head. Aroma, yeast clove and citrus. Wheat, malt and citrus are the main flavors. High carbonation and medium bodied. Not as aggressively spicy as some hefe weizens. Overall this is quite enjoyable. Niko100 (2966) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2016
