Pours a cloudy marigold with an inch-thick head of white foam that offers excellent retention. A little lace is left behind on the glass.

Aroma

Pleasant aroma yields typical banana and clove.

Flavor

The palate is subdued with mild flavors of banana and clove atop a wheat base. Finishes bitterly with peppery hops.

Mouthfeel

Mouthfeel is smooth and effervescent but its light body seems a tad thin.

Overall

The Krombacher Weizen is an easy-drinking beer but its palate is underwhelming. While it’s not bad, just know there are better hefeweizens available from Germany and here in the United States.

One thought on “Krombacher Weizen

  1. I know I am in the minority when I say this, I have had quite a few German Hefeweizens and, in my opinion, it is one of the smoothest, most flavorable ones, surpassing what many consider the best; Weihenstephaner. Paulaner, Franzikaner, Hacker Pschoor and others are very good but I prefer Krombacher.
