4.28/5  rDev +10.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Pours a hazy pale golden color with a light and airy white head that coats the walls of the glass as is recedes. Nose is mildly fruity banana with some strong spicy notes of clove and fresh-cracked black pepper. Medium in body with a very smooth and silky mouthfeel. Taste is light creamy banana up front followed by some yeasty and bready notes. Some lemony citrus notes come through in the end leaving a crisp finish. This is a very nice, though not outstanding, Hefe; however, it goes down so easily it’s scary.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A very thick head with a yellowish-orange tone. An average smell with a fruity citrus hint alongside the perceptible wheat.

The flavour is considerably good, light and dry malty taste, very soft on the mouth which still requires it to be tasted twice to fully perceive the fruity mixture. Highly recommendable.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A hazy, medium light golden yellow Hefeweizen with a large creamy, foamy, white head. There is a slight scent of spice and a hint of fruit to the smell. The taste has a slight sourness in the beginning (almost like sour apple), followed by a sweetness and a slight banana flavor, the finish is malty. In my mouth it is silky from the wheat and full feeling. Overall a nice mix of flavors and a very nice mouthfeel.

whoa, this one had a monster pillowy white head that stood strong for a minute or two and then quickly died to a lace, but it did leave its mark on the sides of the glass. the beer is as you would expect: straw colored with good cloudiness. there is yeast and a bit of citrus in the smell.

there is not a whole lot of flavor to this one. it has some flavors of citrus (lemon) and some bread and yeast flavors. actually, it has a lot of lemon. the one thing i will say about this brew is that it is very refreshing. it just quenches thirst incredibly. it is light and crisp, and very drinkable. not a great hefe, but it is a good beer to drink.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Golden color, foamy head; fruit, spice and malt aroma. The flavor is fruity and spicy like the aroma with good malt sweetness, wheat and yeast flavors. Slightly dry malt finish with a touch of hops bitterness. Smooth and creamy; slighty thin body. Fairly long dry malt aftertaste retaining some of the spiciness.

Hazy yellow-orange color with a thick white head. Wheaty, citrus aroma. Resfreshing but flavor was kind of weak and the body was rather thin. Decent summer brew but it didn't really twist my pickle.

4/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a darkish golden yellow color with a huge creamy, pillowy white head that lasts all the way to the bottom and leaves a nice clinging lace. Smell is of some big bananas with some spicy cloves and a bit of tart citric fruit as well. The taste has great fruity characteristics with bananas being the most notable, but not the only one there. There is also a nice spicy clove and slight pepper flavor that rides through to the finish. The brew is a bit thin in the mouthfeel department, but is still rather creamy and smooth and is still rather drinkable. A very nice hefe and one I wouldn't mind returning too.

4.38/5  rDev +12.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: 16oz brown sleek euro style bottle with a drink before date clearly marked.

Appearance: Soft pale hazy yellow with a crown like white lace that floats all the way down.

Smell: Spicy with a mild black pepper aroma with a little melon and banana, from the fruity esters, in the nose also.

Taste: Smooth and crisp with a silky texture and nice carbonation holding this medium bodied brew together. Grain and wheat malt dominate the forefront though a subdued fruit and rounding spicy flavour that leads to a restrained hop bitterness. An underlying sweetness flows from start to finish with a bready yeasty flavour tagging along.

Notes: Top notch for the style, a must buy for all wheat beer lovers. Balanced to a T and goes down quicker than water. Add a slice of lemon to break in the novice beer drinker.

4.45/5  rDev +14.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Cloudy, yellow gold with a good head that holds up fairly well. The aroma is mainly of clove and fruit above a sweetmalt and limited banana. The body is thin, but zesty, and creamy as it warms. The flavor is of a fruity malt with clove and a very light banana. The finish is refreshing with a touch of hop bitterness. Very well balanced. Not exactly a stand-out weizen for any particular reason, but quite flawless and seductive nonetheless. An excellent choice.

On-tap review of 06OCT03...
I had a 1/2 litre of this while in a little bar in Rothenburg called the Guckloch. It poured a cloudy, light golden shade, with a creamy-smooth, mousse-like white topping. The head lasts decently, with fair lacing. The nose is light clove with banana; pleasant yet mild. Has a bit less than medium body, with a creamy/bubbly/foamy feel on the tongue. Banana clove flavors dominate, and it is crisp and dry. As it warms a spiciness comes into play. A decent Bier, though not earth-shattering by any means. One or two will suffice. Zum Wohl!!

overall: 3.8

Bottle review of 04AUG02...
The color of this bier is a lt. golden/yellow/straw-like hue. Some cloudiness after the yeast is added, and the head is creamy, white, fine and well-lasting. Not much lacework, though. Nose is a spicy yeast-clove combo. Some banana comes forth, also. I found the body a little thin, but it was still fairly smooth. Lots of banana flavors show through, and a nice spice bite (with more clove) adds to your drinking pleasure! Citrus notes round things up in the finish. Pretty good, but I wish it were more full-bodied, and the flavors could be more assertive. (4.0/4.0/4.0/3.5/4.0 - 3.95)

Cloudy golden color with a thick white head that took a while to dissipate. Good carbonation with a nice citrusy aroma. The citrusy flavor lingers in the mouth for awhile. What I would expect from a good Hefeweizen. My personal preference is for Tucher's Dunkel.

This brew held a good foamy head and had a nice cloudy golden color. At firsts taste it went down very smooth, but closer to the finsih it was leaving a bad taste in my mouth. I will drink it again and see if maybe it was something I was eating with it...may be better alone ona cold lazy summer day.....CHEERS

Great head that holds through out. Cloudy and golden in color. Slight citrus flavor, just enough for the summer. Hint of banana in the after taste. I would love to be in Germany sampling this on tap!

Great tasting bier. Cloudy golden colour just the way i like it. Smells of citrus not over bearing. After the bier was a little warm the hops jumped out at me, very nice. Nice head retension. I can not wait to get to Germany. Another great serving of liquid bread.

Tucker Helles Hefe Weizen: half liter brown bottle. Freshness date marked on bottle Pale yellow, cloudy with very white dense head. (I left the yeast on the bottom, this time).Very light and refreshing hefe weisen beer, with sweet citrus/apple flavors. Dry crisp finish. Pretty good beer, right down the middle for its style.

Beautiful white beer color with a slight cloudy look. Rich white head. Wheaty/yeasty smell with hints of vanilla. Slides through your mouth with silky feel. Wow very good, not as sweet as paulaner and has more body, more balence. I could drink this all night.

Nice cloudy yellow color, the head faded fast. Yeast dominates the smell. Big yeast, citrus, and floral flavors to start. Well balanced and easy to drink, not as refreshing as some other hefeweizens. Just thought it not as flavorful as the franizkaner weis, but still highly recommend it.

Excellent hefeweissbier! All the characteristics you expect from a good hefeweiss. Pallid hazy yellow. Bang-Pow fruity esters dancing on your tongue. Clean dry tart in the finish with the slightest hint of bittering hops. Quality start to finish, one of the best I've had.
