German Weissbiers, known as hefeweizens in America, generally range from light and spritzy to dark and a bit fuller. This one is on the fuller side. The aroma is sweet and bready with a touch of banana. In the glass, it’s a dark gold/amber with a fl uffy white head that settles quickly with nice lacing on the glass. Hints of toffee along with the standard ripe banana, and some clove add a pleasant spiciness. A comforting Weissbier, the malt provides a fi rm backbone to the beer and the yeast provides the interesting flavors. With such rich flavors this Weissbier is perhaps suited to early spring rather than a hot summer day.
