Perfectly cloudy golden to pale orange color. Huge foamy rich creamy head, stayed long and strong. Nice rich yeasty smell combined with the usual banana, clove, and slight citrus smells. Unbelievably balanced taste of delicious yeast goodness on top, then subtle bananas, clove, then a crisp clean citrus finish. Faint malty taste underneath it all. Medium bodied, exceptional tasting hefe-weiss, pairs well with spicy food, or alone as a thirst quencher.

Handsome hazy golden with thick white head, lots of yeast in the nose. Abundant wheat immediately quenches thirst, malts add a warm sweetness, and the hops add a tartness to the finish which still maintains the sweetness, drawn out nicely so you crave another sip. A solid basic hefe, with lively characteristics that keeps flavor dancing on your tongue. This is not as adventuresome as some others, and almost a little watery, but it is consistent and very satisfying. If you are still drinking your hefes out of a regular old pint glass, do yourself a favor and invest in a tall weissbier glass; your appreciation of the beer will double.

Really enjoyable heffeweiss. Terrific sweet, round flavor, just enough spice and a lingering, if small, head. I really like hefe-weiss with mexican and tex-mex food. The sweet, creaminess plays well with bold, spicey food.

Nice bier...would like to do a side-by-side with Paulaner... Cloudy golden/orangey color....I made sure to swirl the bottle up to get the yeasties....gave a creamy, but small, head (which did last a while). Clove, banana, a bit of citrus in the nose. Verry nice taste....combo of the above flavors with a hint of malt...nice blend. Quite decent body and smoothness. Goes down well on a warm Spring (or Summer...) day! Prosit!

The head on this hazy-orange seducer towered above my pilsener glass at least an inch without letting go one delightful drop of hefeweiss. Lemony nose. More clove-like in taste with a somewhat clinging tart finish. Not the best hefe but, in the end, as drinkable as most.

A superb Hefe Weizen. Gorgeous looking brew in the proper glassware. A medium-full bodied masterpiece. Top notch stuff here, one of the best.

Presentation: Sleek 16 oz brown euro style bottle, no freshness date.

Appearance: With this sample the yeast was swirled and decanted into the glass. Very cloudy pale orange with a creamy white lace.

Smell: Soft oily clove on the nose, fruity and lively with hints of earthy yeast.

Taste: Medium bodied that is meshed well with a marvelously textured mouth feel. Light lemon twang with a very evident snappy spicy clove are followed by warming fruity esters and a fresh baked cracker malt flavour. Hop bitterness is nearly non-existent which is perfect for the style. An earthy yeast character picks up the finish and lends a nutty flavour.

Notes: A little robust and lively, a hard Hefeweizen to beat. Goes really well with a smoked ham and havarti with spicy mustard on marbled rye … a.k.a. a great lunch time brew.
