I tried this beer when I was at Brauhaus with Paul, Andre and KK. It was a pretty
disappointing Hefe, I have to confess. It pours out a nice cloudy golden with a nice head
The first part of the taste was a refreshing and nice though a little too light wheat taste.
But what followed was a taste analagous to white board markers! This taste prolongs into the
after taste as well which made it really bad for me. The only salvaging part of it was the
refreshing hefe typicality which we see in every hefes on the market. However this part of it
was apparently only felt by me as the 3 of them begged to differ; different taste buds, I
(Disclaimer: I did not have enough of this beer to write a review. This review is based on
what I feel from what I have tasted and I am writing it because I probably would not be
having this beer again.)

I ordered this on my last trip to the Bavaria Hof Restaurant in Schaumburg, IL $5.50 for a 330 ml brown bottle with no freshness date.
This is a beautiful looking beer. Not as cloudy as most hefeweizens, this one produced a slightly hazed deep golden color with 3 full fingers of fluffy white head on top. Retention was forever. I finally gave up waiting for the head to go down and just dove in for my first sip, coming up with white foam on my nose. The lacing was good as well.
Not as much banana/clove aroma as I expected from a hefeweizen, but lots of wheat and lemon instead.
Wheat and bready malt backbone with only a hint of banana/clove flavor. The lemon/citrus that was detected in the nose is also very prominent in the taste. Low bitterness and well hidden alcohol. With all the lemon it was a bit on the tart side, but I didn't mind that at all.
Smooth, light body with medium carbonation.
While not the typical classical hefeweizen, I loved it and will seek it out in 6-packs in area liquor stores, which should have it at much lower cost than restaurant prices.
