UPDATED: MAR 2, 2007 Bottle. Lightly hazy soft yellow colored body with a thin white head. Sweet and fruity lemon and light yeast up front and across the middle of the tongue, finishing crisp and on the tart side just slightly. Wheat, lemon and hay flavors abound in this one, and it’s properly light and very refreshing, though not exactly complex, it’s still delicious.

Pours bright yellow and cloudy with a mostly receding white head. Aroma is sweet and yeasty with notes of wheat and honey. Taste is sweet, fruity, citric with banana, and a firm backing of wheat. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with lush, lively carbonation. Refreshing and well carbonated.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. brown, longneck bottle. No freshness date seen, but it’s a 2006 batch. Poured out a hazy yellow color, with a thin, white, soapy head. Minimal lacing effect in the glass. Aromas are of German yeast funk right off the bat. Strong yeast aromas, followed by slight citrus notes, & typical Pils malt smell. Flavors are of cloves, black pepper bites the tongue, some citrus notes also. Spicy hops bite at the end. Medium mouthfeel, rich body though. Finishes peppery & lively.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A little richer than many hefeweizens and the palate reflects this by seeming a bit thicker. The flavors were pretty tightly wound which made it pleasant to drink, but not terribly memorable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to DocLock! Pure cloudy light straw color with a modest, yet stable off white head. Citric aromas, with only a touch of cloves and ripe bananas. Some light sweet wheat comes out as it warms and picks the scent up a notch. The palate is nearly perfect. A near oddity with a a touch too much silk and not enough effervescence. Light milk caramel with bananas and cream. Nearly to heavy and filling, but a very balanced and flavorful weizen. Light pepper and spice in the finish. This is a fall, "heavier" light weiss type of brew.
