Hefe Weiss

16 oz, usual Sprecher, “stubbie” presentation. Thanks to Kevin for the chance to try this one.
The beer pours a hazed orange with a tea-like appearance. No head, retention or lace to peak of. Looks a little “dead”.
A lot of tropical fruit in the nose with an especially large emphasis on the pineapple for me.
The beer drinks and tastes a little drier than the nose would suggest, but it still has a strong fruit note as opposed to any kind of wheat. The pineapple keeps coming and there is a touch of bitter aniseed in the finish. the bitterness could also be attributed to the clove element, but it’s not very noticeable.
Despite the apparent lack of carbonation, the beer still drinks with a creamy mouthfeel.
Drinks and tastes better than it looks.
