COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With its amber-mahogany coloring and streaked with fine top-fermented yeast, this beer has a fine, persistent head that adheres well to the glass. It is pleasantly fruity with a typical top-fermented smell, an aroma of clove and nutmeg apple tantalizes the nose. On the tongue it is fresh, clean, full-bodied, harmonious and well-balanced. It finishes with a light, delicate taste of bitters leaving behind a sour impression.

I always considered this to be darkish hefeweizen but I not a dunkel. I suppose it makes sense since it is pretty dark. Anyway its a golden orangey darkness. It pours with a huge head and ooks beautiful served in a weizen. It also tastes beautiful. The banana esters arent as prominent as some weizens but still exists. It has lots of spiciness and it is difficult to imagine how they got so much flavour diversity using so few ingredients. Id consider it to be something of a classic of its style.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUN 23, 2007
Bottle, kmweaver-exclusive non-RBSG pity-party tasting 2007. Pours a cloudy, dark brown color with yellowish edges; off-white head with great retention and lacing. Generous aroma, showing wheat and bananas and belgian sugars. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: chewy display of complex esters and brown sugar, with lively citrus and wheaty notes; beautifully integrated, satisfying wheat beer. Medium, estery and brown sugar finish, with a hint of clove. Wonderful stuff.

Definitely one of the benchmark Hefeweissens available. Spicy and refreshing. None of that irritating banana flavour found in most hefes.

This is the best hefeweisse Ive had in recent memory, and possibly ever. This beer offers a significant amount of clove and spice, but is not overpouring and is extremely drinkable. Appearance is darker than I wouldve expected, and the head is billowy and plentiful (reminiscent of a Belgian strong ale). Aroma is clovey with some other spices. Flavor is extremely smooth and of more clove, balanced well with wheat and malt. Mouthfeel, due to secondary fermentation, is extremely smooth. I foundt his beer to be extremely drinkable, and went well with my meal at Cafe Brucke. I would like to add that this bottle was extremely fresh, as is always the case with Cafe Bruckes selection of imports. The bottle I had looked like it just came off the bottling line.

malrubius (2758) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JUN 11, 2007
Bottle in weizen glass. Pours cludy medium brown with lasting light tan hed and some lacing. Faint aroma of banana, tartness, bready yeast. Very light flavor of tangy wheat and light roasted malt. Excellent mouthfeel of medium body and medium carbonation. Very refreshing but somewhat restrained in flavor. A quality beer but not a favorite.

chimpscampee (566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 10, 2007
Head is a down pillow with aroma of clove and nutmeg, banana, pear and perhaps faint apple or peach. Mild mineral aspect. Finish is sour but not in an annoying way. Fairly light body. Lots of carbonation.

Dedollewaitor (15832) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2007
Muddy amber with off white head. BB 06/07. Yeast, banana, wheat, caramel - malt. Malty bready taste with some wheat & banana around it. Fresh mouthfeel - little watery though. Spicy - not coriander, but perhaps clove or cinnamon. Highly enjoyable (and finally within my reach)! Very good!

Happy birthday to me. crystal clear amber with a lasting white head. aroma smoked banana caramel and clove. sweet banana bubble gum bitter caramel with some spiced bread notes all backed up with an underlying smoke flavor. spicy (clove) smoked meaty caramel finish. medium body. lively carbonation. very interesting wheat. so smokey. if given blind i would say that it would certainly have some smoked malt.....does it?

Banana bread aroma. Rich yeasty flavor, but the palate is a bit thin. Nice, though.
