look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance: Sellow with great crown white lace .

Smell: Spicy banana, melons, cloves and bubblegum

Tste: Out of this world ! It is silk and nice carbonation holding this medium bodied brew together. Grain and wheat in beginning and fruit and rounding spicy flavour that leads to a restrained hop bitterness. An underlying rich and cream ending. It is diffreent

Mouthfeel - Light in body with a fresh, lively carbonation. Finishes with a touch of dryness. Entirely smooth and drinkable.

Overall: Top notch for the style. Balanced is undbeleivable with nice rich and creaming. It have you come back for more water. Great beer from a great brewer! I love Hefeweizen!

The best beer I have ever had. Bar none.

I have had many many beers of this style and others but this one alone stands out enough to warrant a perfect rating from me.

Light, fruity, bubble gum esters sit atop a gorgeous straw colored and relatively highly carbonated brew. The expected banana and clove aromas are there but the bubble gum is what makes this beer to special to me.

Belgian lace and a nice persistent 1/2" head accompany you on your way through this experience.

Unlike many hefeweizens, there is no metallic or brassy start to this beer. It is pure bliss from start to finish.

If you can find it, get it!

Had this in Rothenburg ob der Tauber while on vacation in Germany at outdoor restaurant. Honestly, perhaps the best beer I have ever tasted. I really can't think of any ways to improve this beer.

Wonderful foamy, thick head with beautiful golden color. The smell was heavenly, and would have been perfectly content just smelling the beer for a while without taking a sip. The beer is wonderfully complex and about as smooth as anything you'll ever drink. Tremendous finish leaves you wanting to take the next sip asap. The only negative is that it's really hard to get in the States. Absolutely recommend it to anyone who knows beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Poured in a tulip glass from a bottle...
5.35 ABV, 137 calories
originally tasted 9/8/08, retasted w/ a more educated palate on 1/30/09

A-4.5, golden cloudy straw color, cloudy bright yellow, great 2 finger head and excellent head retention & growth on pour
S-4.5 lemon citrus & citrus TARTNESS, wheat in background, minoe
clove spice notes linger on nose
T-5.0 - TASTE IS THE LEADER ONE THIS TASTING, I DIG THIS STUFF, tart & crisp on palate, smooth but crisp wheaty-ness/bite
MF-4.5 tart but equally balanced for a hefe, not to overly carbonated like some can be, appropriatte wheat body as I would prefer....
D5.0- a solid session hefe brew for sure, you gotta like wheat & hefe tartness to like this one, but it's right on in my book!!!

Tucher is a well known hefeweizen around here, so I've drank it several times. However, this was the first time I saw it in a can. I picked it up at Total Wine.

Appearance: Poured into a .5 L hefeweizen glass. The can pours very well, I left some on the bottom to swirl around in order to pick up yeast. It was a lovely pale gold color with lots of turbidity as with any unfiltered hefeweizen. The head was huge and lasted quite a while, and even when it disappated, it neve really was gone, leaving about a third of an inch.

Aroma: Fruity, with notes of citrus, banana, and a hint of melon, spice, and clove.

Taste: Smooth and crisp, medium body and medium carbonation. Wheat maltiness with notes of citrust, banana, and a clove. Mildy sweet, not too little, not too much. Very balanced.

All in all, this is an excellent beer. I've had it in bottles and on tap, but for some reason, this can was amazing. If you're new to hefeweizens or know someone who is, I'd recommend starting with one.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a large tapered Carlsberg glass at The Local Miami.

A- Pours a hazy medium golden color with a 1/2 inch head that retains a bit before dying down to an 1/8 inch head.

S- Staightforward yeasty wheat aroma with some mild orange peel and coriander.

T- Classic wheat beer flavor with lots of rich, milky yeast notes. Very quaffable with some tangy spice and a bit of zesty citrus. Barely any hop bitterness but what's there is complementary.

M- Creamy with a lighter body. Medium carbonation.

O- It just doesn't get much better than this. Sessionable, flavorful, balanced. Just about perfect.

Gold-ish orange color with a full white pillowy head and good carbonation throughout. Light classic banana-clove aroma and flavor. Medium bodied, smooth and creamy.

A solid Bavarian Hefe-weizen -- A definite buy !!

Pours with a very good head. Excellent, light bronze color. Very soft on the palate, with citrus overtones. No bitterness present. Smooth enough to let you have a few. However, a noticeably missing in malt and hop, which leaves you wanted a little more character to it. Over all, right up there with a Konig or Hacker in this category.

Bright, effervescent carbonation is the first thing you notice when pouring this beer. It fizzes and the bubbles lift the liquid into the air in little bursts like champagne. The color is golden, and nearly clear, not cloudy like most wheats. The smell is fresh and clean: grain, a little spice, light citrus, salt/ocean air. The flavor is among the most crisp and refreshing beers you'll ever have. The body is light, and flavor is medium - not too light and not too heavy. Wheat is there, (obviously) and nice spiciness, no off flavors at all and that great carbonation gives it a sublime mouthfeel. Drinkability is fantastic. This is an excellent summer session beer. It goes down smoother than 90% of the beers I've ever tried.
