Deliciously made and well crafted beer with a subtle hint of banana flavor.

This is the first German beer I have tried and is by far my favorite beer, now I underatand why they say Germany makes the best beer. I recently turned 21 and started trying different types of beer to find what I like, and well this is a winner.

Poured cloudy with a orange hue. Low head and retention...probably not a well-cleaned glass. I get some of the banana esters I was expecting, but not too much. Closest smell I can think of is canned corn. Taste is where this brew moves up a notch. Full-flavored hefe with better mouthfeel than most. Nice finish as well. Pretty much a go-to hefe, and the decision is even easier considering how reasonably priced this usually is.

This is flat out one of my favorite beers. I am a huge fan of the style, so I am a little biased. When it comes to Hefeweizen I feel this is one that others should be compared to. Great body, aroma, and flavor. Top of the class!

This tastes like a German Biergraden. It's top notch and arguably the best of its style. Plus, relatively easy to find at my local specialty grocer.

Appearance : yeast galore! Tall head covers 90% of the pint glass and only 6 oz have been poured. So yeah great head, slightly hazy orange glow with beautiful sediment floating around.

Aroma : yeast, fresh baked bread, spicy citrus and clean hop leaf. Very crisp and pleasant smell.

Flavor : wheat, banana, orange, fruit salad, with lots of zip and warmth, just so perfect it's hard to describe really. It's so blissful.

Mouthfeel : creamy, dense, crisp, zippy.

Overall : One of my top 5 beers now. Seriously amazing.
