Pours a cloudy orange color with a nice white head into my glass. THIS is a hefeweizen, baby!

Banana and clove in the nose with a stronger emphasis on the latter.

Citrus, clove and wheat flavors make up the palate here. Somewhat dry too.

Authentic mouthfeel too. Clove is most prominent. Carbonation is mid-level.

It tastes a bit bland but otherwise, should quench your thirst. I would still take it over any of the American Pale Wheat Ale imitators!

Everyone has been raving about this Hef but in my opinion it's way over carbonated and very light in flavor. Maybe I am not overally ethusiastic about this Hef because I am used to the American Hefs (Sam Adams, Pyramid, etc) so take this with a grain of salt:

A: Poured a thick white head and golden/orangy color.

S: Lots of spice and citrus

T: A very tangy brew, a lot of carb, probably should have let this sit awhile

M: Crisp and clean and lots of carb - too much carb in my opinion. Sorta distracted from the overall taste

Overall - this is a great German style hef. If you're used to American Hef you might be slightly disappointed.

The huge off white head dissipates slowly atop a hazy light gold brew, which darkens as more yeast hits the liquid.

Smell is lightly lemony, yeasty, tangy, just about right.

Tastes of the wheat and yeast, but unfortunately not much else.

Feel is almost smoth, light bubbly, and easy to drink.

While this is definitely not Wiehanstephaner, it is still a fine beer.

500ml bottle. Weizen glass. Enjoyed on apr´12 –and many times in the past. Lemon yellow color, foggy appearance. White, close, lasting crown. Intense clove & banana aromas, yeast & mildy malty touches, phenol & bready crust notes. Fruity flavor & slightly acidic hues. Low bitterness. Spiced palate & subtle buttery sensation. Flavorful medium body, moderate carbonation. Dry finish. Refreshing & drinkable. (Now available at many supermarkets. Store at home for a short time before drink it. My suggestion)

I have been wanting to sample a good hefe for a while, as I have been on a porter/stout kick for what seems like forever. Although I have certainly drank other kinds of beers over the last few months, some in excess, porters and stouts have dominated my beer-drinking as of late. But I don’t want to limit myself to only a couple styles! Especially since German wheat beers are so remarkably and consistently good, I wanted to grab this. Anyway, poured from a pint bottle into what else? A big, personalized weizen glass I got from being a groomsman. Hells yeah

Appearance – Cloudy golden color with an almost brown essence floating around in the beer. This brew certainly looks almost like a two-tone beer, kinda like this awesome ’77 Ford Bronco I used to have. But that’s another story. Nice head on the brew, probably two fingers, outstanding retention and lacing up and down the glass. Weizens in the proper glassware are some of the best looking beers on the planet.

Smell – Breads, yeast, bananas, clove,
everything you would expect from a weizen, and BIG

Taste – Powerful bready yeast with a solid banana background, with hints of clove almost following the nose exactly. This beer is as big in taste as it is in smell, and it smells BIG and tastes BIG. What a brew!

Mouthfeel – Smooth, creamy, nice finish. Big beer all around, makes you want to slam this down!

Overall – This is a tasty beverage through and through . Highly recommended, I would absolutely buy it again. German wheat beers are just so good, it’s nice to revisit them from time to time. First time I have drank a Paulaner, but I bought their doppelbock on the same run as when I got this. This beer represents the hefeweizens and Paulaner well, so I am excited about the doppelbock. Try this beer!

A: Poured from a bottle you get a copper/orange color with a thick white head.

S: Great smells of spice, bananas, citrus. Great smell, but could it be as good as it smells???

T: Yes, yes it can. Great flavor. Not overpowering, but full of flavor that matches the smell.

M: Crisp and clean. Bit more carbonation than anticipated, but doesn't distract from the taste.

Overall - great beer and representation of a hefezeizen. I want more.

Poured into a glass from a bottle, this is a cloudy golden color with medium head. Smells of lemon, banana, and cloves. The taste is like liquid banana bread, with some slight spiciness and citrus mixed in. Extremely refreshing and drinkable, this is a great hefeweizen.
