This beer is the perfect Bavarian beer. Just all of the classic flavors here and really this is the beer that wheat beers are based off of. Sweet clove, banana flavors. Rich wheat body. Really fantastic and worth a swill, even though it is everywhere you look

One of my top 2 favorite hefes the other is Franziskaner (under rated hefe)

This beer is the definition of a Hefeweizen!

Bread, toast, dough, banana, woody, roasty. Excellent Heffeweissbier! Best I’ve tasted so far. Very refreshing and smooth. You know you’re drinking a quality wheat as soon as you taste it! A must have, for me.

This is the top of the class for the style, and for good reason. Everything about this beer is perfection. As much as I enjoy it here in the states, having it fresh from the brewery on tap at the Cologne Christmas Market was a transcendental experience.

Maybe the perfect wheat beer. I usually shy away from this style as I don't often like whatever gives it the seasoning flavor, but this beer is beautiful to look at, smells great and tastes like everything you could want in a refreshing, sweet summery beer.

Great traditional hefe.
Pours a nice golden color with abut a 3 figure white, rocky head. Leaves a nice lacing for the remainder of the drink.
Full smell, colve, wheat, and some bannana.
Wonderfully balanced taste, with the above mentioned smells coming out. Great levels of carbonation.
Second best hefe I've had, and the first one was more of a craft style.

Pretty carbonated for a Hefeweizen. This gives it a very lively and promising appearance when poured in the appropriate Weizen glass. The taste is just awesome. Lots of flavors (esters?) and a very smooth feeling in the mouth. A beer that lives up to its name.

If I’m going to drink a hefe (and it’s not Live Oak’s) then it might as well be this one. Get it on draught.

Cloudy golden color with some powerful activity. Thick foamy white sparkly 3 finger head, lasting around 15 minutes, with strong legs.

Sweet grains and citrus smell, a little faint. Flavors of fresh grains, lemon, orange with hints of clove and coriander. Well balanced with a pleasant rich sweet bread taste and a slightly sharp and crispy citrus and herbal feel.

Slick full body with perfect carbonation. Well intensified and short clean finish, ending with pleasant floral spices and fruity sugary banana and honey feel lingering on the tongue.

Overall an exquisite craft offering complex and delicious flavors, great freshness, extremely well balanced, accessible, and a true joy to drink!

Man, what a beer. This is one that presents something new with each sip. I definitely found on tap to be a much more pleasing experience, but I think the bottles I've had may have been a bit elderly.

I was a bit concerned at first because it smelled as if it might be a bit skunky, but fortunately that wasn't the case. Very light and relaxed flavor with an aftertaste that should lend itself to a cheesy dish. Very nice.

500 mL bottle poured into a hefeweizen glass. The aroma is a mellow, creamy banana and vanilla with a complimentary clove and some subtle undertones of peaches. The beer is a cloudy pale with a hint of gold to it, and is topped by a creamy and frothy white head that retains well and leaves a light lace. The taste is a mellow and mild medium sweet with medium low bitterness. A creamy texture and carbonation go down smooth and easy with a medium body containing notes of fresh baked bread, banana, orange, vanilla, and a light woody clove spice that finishes clean with a lightly bitter clove and citrus zip and crispness that mellows quickly and turns over to a light oranges and nila wafers combination which stick in the aftertaste with a touch of lemon, and a lactose hint. Quite delightful.

We love this beer and just bought another case of it. Smooth taste, fun to drink it through the foam head, light wheat taste with hints of citrus. Low alcohol content makes it a good addition to lunch or dinner meal. Not too filling and leaves a great after taste.

This is our favorite beer. Started drinking in Munich and have not stopped.
