Still that fruit, and still the richness in a classic package. Banana rules, but the beer has a clarity about it than many unfiltered versions do not.
Original notes 01/24/04
Poured a very attractive “toffee” color with a sweet aroma. I’m not a huge fan of the Hefe-Weizen’s in general, but this is clearly a quality beer. Very smooth in the mouth and highly drinkable.
There was a distinct fruitiness in the aroma that was not evident in the taste. Like almost all of this style of beer very thirst-quenching. I can’t help but associate the Hefe’s with summer drinking so I always encourage the consumption of these in the warmer months – I don’t know why, but they always seem to go down easier then.
