It's a great beer. It poured beautifully, had notes of ripen bananas and fruity esters. Very easy to drink and light-bodied. It seems to be missing that subtle peppery bite that I look for in a hefeweizen. It doesn't compare to New Glarus Dancing Man - which has set the bar really high. It might be that this beer is not fresh. Could not find the bottle date and bought this off a shelf at room temp. I have no doubt that drinking this straight from the source or from a fresh bottle would leave this beer tasting much better than now. I will take the next opportunity to try this beer again when I find it refrigerated.

Not sure I understand the fascination with this beer. I'm not a hop snob and appreciate Czech and German pilsners and lagers and enjoy Hefe Weisbiers as well. Who knows ? Maybe the main streamers who put a lemon wedge in this stuff are right. Think it would help.

I can't deny how good this is. They hit it right. Perfect amount of carbonation and perfect amount of banana flavors. The only thing I can say is that the smell gets a 4 but who cares about that. Everything else is a 5. I still enjoy many other hefeweizens but this one truly is that extra bit better than all the others I have had. Fantastic beer.

Rich and spicy clove notes blend with pleasantly balanced fruity esters. Perfect body. Incredibly drinkable and refreshing. Simply the definition of the style.
