Kulmbacher Kapuziner Weissbier (7/10)

Kulmbacher Kapuziner Weissbier is a Bavarian hefeweizen style beer.

The aroma is very mild, with some clove, banana, and maybe a bit of citrus.

The color is a cloudy amber, with thick off-white head.

The flavor has a bit of clove to it, with a hint of roasted grain, and a very mild hoppiness that mostly serves to balance out the flavor without overwhelming it.  It's a pleasant beer and very easy to drink.

Beer Advocate rates it a 90-98 (exceptional to world-class).  Rate Beer rates it an 83 overall.

I had this beer at The Winking Lizard Tavern on draft in 2012.  I've only seen it in bottled form at Whole Foods Market in Dublin, though it may be elsewhere.

ABV: 5.4%
IBU: Unknown, estimate around 20
My Rating: 7/10
