New brew at Toppers Cellar Door!

Image result for grieskirchner weisse

Very cloudy and murky yellow color, typical. Plenty of wheat and tons of orange and banana in the aroma. Fruity, with a light spice, but not an overly strong aroma.

Wheat flavors are big up front and throughout. And unlike the aroma, the spices really pop. Cloves and coriander really stand out prominently as an orange flavor provides a nice palate to do so. There are also some banana flavors that are fairly noticeable.

A nice tangy zing is present and welcome, helping to brighten up an otherwise thick and wheaty coating on the mouth. However, I would have certainly preferred that to have been quite a bit sharper. Good balance, lightly sweet throughout. Carbonation was solid. Body decent. 5.1% alcohol not noticeable. Not a bad beer and it certainly grows on you as you drink the entire thing.
