Pours into a weizen glass with a huge foamy white heady and a beautiful cloudy orangish-yellow tint that is the picture of perfection for a hefe in my opinion. Smells of Corrainder, clove, citrus peel and bread. Leaves spotchy white lacing down the glass. I didnt really like this beer until i got introduced to the german hefe style, and compared to the american version this is definately a world apart. Taste begins with a spicy clove taste followed by corriander and lemon zest with a crisp finish. Alot more tastes than my humble pallet can really decipher, but an excellent beer overall. Really a first rate hefe, better than any american version i've found and its inexpensive (for an import) to boot. A bit lest crisp and refreshing that im used to for hefe's even german ones so it gets docked a bit on mouthfeel but a great beer anyways

12 oz bottle was poured into a tulip glass.
Appearance: A one finger head wad poured that reduced to a puffy layer. It is a hazy pale orange with vision of tiny bubbles coming up through the glass.
Smell: Bready, banana, clove, spice, and vanilla.
Taste: Traditional Bavarian yeast with bready and vanilla notes from the malts.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied, refreshing, chewy, and medium carbonation.
Overall: It's been awhile since I have had this. Enjoyable and classic beer.

One of my favorite Weiss beers. Up there with the Weihenstephaners, Ayingers and Andechers. Has more of a spicy flavor than other Weiss beers as I get more copper/metal from the hefe (that's yeast in english). The appearance is cloudy and golden like a great weiss beer. Mouthfeel is tangy and smooth at the same time. Taste is a touch spicier and sweeter than other weiss beers such as Hacker and Paulaner. That's a positive. I love this beer and so should you.
When Bayern Munich play in the Champions League, I drink these bad boys all match long (about 3 to 4 half-liters) at the local bar that has it on tap. The monk on the bottle? That's an original art-deco Ludwig Hohlwein painting from the '30s. Oh yeah, they don't call it "Hefe Weizen" in Bavaria. It's called Weissbier! Now you know and order accordingly when you're next in Munich!
