Why do they call this Malt Liquor on the bottle? Almost didn't try it. Picked up a couple at $1 each at the Navy Post Exchange in Spain. Pleasantly surprised. Nice head, cloudy yellowish appearance and floral sweet hefe scent. Well worth the dollar. Taste is spicy, malty, and wheaty. Why not call it a wheat liquor? Mouthfeel is light body and carbonated nicely. Overall a decent hefe, a great value, and something I will be picking up for the beach. Refreshing late spring beer. Cheers.

mmmm Hefeweizen. Very refreshing. Served in a Tucher Weizen glass, monster head that faded over time. Nice golden cloudy complexion. Thankfully the lemon was served on the side and not thrown in. Smella yeasty with hints of vanilla and cloves but subtle. Taste is very smooth, with no bite or bitterness good balance of flavors and a little carbonation. Flavors of clove, spice and vanilla/banana are present but are a little too weak to my liking. Great example of German wheat beer and very good beer to have on a hot humid summer day.

bottle to weizen glass

S: Bananas, lemon meringue, yeast, dust, bread

A: Light yellow, and not actually very cloudy compared to others. Great fluffy head, that hangs around forever.

T: Bananas, sweetness, lemon, yeast, a little tangy funky yogurty zip at the end. Definitely unique.

M/D: Average to thin, little thickness and slippery probably d/t wheat. Very drinkable. Refreshing and minimal alcohol presence.

Overall: Not a hefeweizen expert, but compared to other German ones I've had this seems to be pretty good and tasty, but not super good.

Poured into a 22 oz pilsner glass.

Chill haze straw in color with a rocky one inch head and ample lace.

Smells of ripe apples and cloves. As it warms I do detect a spicey floral note too.

Taste is crisp light spicey hop and fruity ester. Some bananna and clove but not too over-the-top with the yeast profile. A bit watery and slightly grassy earth note.

This is a quaffable brew. Very light and refreshing. I would say this is the "lawn-mower" Tucher.

Tucher's helles Hefe Weizen is definitely good, but for me, not the best I have had.

Out of the bottle, it pours a very bright and cloudy yellow hue. Its head is white and puffy, but no staying power and no lacing. Good scents of oranges, wheat, and hops, mixed perfectly well. The mouthfeel is good, not too much carbonation, but there's a little water feel to it (IMHO). Taste is great, same as it's smells which I always find as a plus. Overall, an outstanding beer, I didn't find it as great as the top ratings on its page, but it is nice to know I've tried something the website holds in so high regard.

a - cloudy gold with a massive head and loads of carbonation. lots and lots of lacing.

s - wheat and faint fruits and cloves (bananas, lemons, etc).

t - lots of wheat with mild fruits. typical of a weizen. i could understand how one might say this is a little watery.

m - light bodied hefe with a good smooth texture. above average finish.

d - hell yeah i'd have this again. definately would go great with a pool and a warm summer evening!

A well made weizen beer. It has the lemon citrus tastes and also is very refreshing on a hot day with some light food. The head and Brussels lace run down as they form a tight white line as the beer is sipped from the Wheat glass. Oe of the better Weizen out there and also as usual highly carbonated but very smooth.

This beer pours a hazy medium light golden yellow with a large cream/foamy white head and a full silky mouthfeel from the suspended yeast. The smell is sweet and lemony/bananna. The tast is grassy, spicy, and apple like with a dry finish. Overall an enjoyable wheat though not my favorite of the style.

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.
