Hopf "Helle Weiße"
Hopf Weißbierbrauerei - Miesbach, Germany
German Hefeweizen (ABV 5.3%)

[Suggested Glassware: Weizen Glass]

Rating: 3.6/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance3/5:
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 15/20

The pour was a medium golden amber with an average (1-2 finger) white fizzy head that dissipated at a good steady pace down to a very light film and a small collar, which did allow for some light streaky lacing.

The aroma was of a grain malt and a light musty yeast with notes of citrus (lemon), banana, pineapple and a touch of coriander.

The taste was sweetly acidic throughout and had a sweet-tart pineapple flavor early on, then a yeasty tart fruity taste slowly but surely took over with notes of banana and citrus and a light hint of spice making their presence known towards the finish. The flavor hung around for an average time after consumption with a tart fruity yeast flavor left lying on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was right in the middle of light and medium in body with a watery and slightly dry texture and a lively carbonation.

Overall an extremely flavorful brew, with great body and nice drinkable feel. I definitely see me drinking this one again...
