At first i was a little disappointed in this one. Poured super chunky with lots of little floaties. As a homebrewer I am used to sediment, but this was excessive and crossed into unappetising. The head disappeared within 2-3 seconds. Unfiltered, it settled quikly to a hazy gold that helped improve initial reactions. Nice fresh and clear aroma of banannas, but little if any hops odors. Mouthfeel is mild..slight carbonation tingle. Taste is citrus, not overly so, but that is about it. No malt, no bitter hops, some yeast flavors. Mild, just not exceptional. It got better once it settled and halfway throught the glass i finaly got a clear taste, but nothing really stands out about this beer. Would go decent with chinese, especially washing down hot mustard or extra spicy general tsaos chicken... other than that, i would try something else next time. Maybe i got a bad or srale/old batch? Will check the date and if so try again.

A: Light straw yellow body. Big Hefe head.

S: Completely generic hefe smell.

T: A good amount of sweet banana. Slightly more bitter than your average Hefe. Nice and tart. After a while a peculiar chemical bitter flavour is present a bit like what you sometimes get in cheap cider.

O: If not for the chemical flavour this would have been a sound Hefewezien.

Cloudy yellow-orange colored beer with a medium sized white colored head.

Smells strongly of malt and about equally strong of clove and banana. Pound cake malt aroma. No off scents at all, this is a German Hefe.

Starts out malty and a little sweet. Clove kicks in pretty quick and banana is the weaker flavor. Quite mildly flavored with no off tastes like Medicinal that sometimes shows up in Hefeweizen.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a solid Hefeweizen.

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.
