This was another selection that my father picked up for Christmas. First of all, I’ve really enjoyed every brew that I’ve had from this brewery. Second of all, I haven’t tried as many beers from this style that I should have. So, definitely time to pop this bad boy open.
Trivia: According to wikipedia.com, “The brewery produces a range of pale lagers and wheat beers including Weihenstephaner Weissbier, a 5.4% abv weissbier which is available in filtered (Kristall) and unfiltered (Hefe) versions. The strongest beers the brewery produces are Vitus (a 7.7% abv wheat beer) and Korbinian (a 7.4% abv strong lager or bock).”
Random: I’m starting to get into Guy and Rachel’s Celebrity Cook Show. It’s quite interesting. I like seeing Hines Ward cook.
This one poured with a huge, three finger white head that dissipated slowly. After the head dissipated, there was no lacing left on the glass. The body was a clear, straw yellow color with heavy carbonation visible throughout. The nose was wheat, banana and a touch of clove. I really enjoyed it. The taste was definitely banana and subtle spice, but it had a crispness to it as well. The taste was really clean as well. It reminded me of a diet hefeweizen. The flavor was really full, but the body was light with heavy carbonation. The finish was quick with banana. This was just a great beer, flat out. It had a lot of flavor typical to the style, but the crispness just added to the beer. Add this to the list of beers I will definitely have again.
