Hazy orange color with lots of thick head with an eternal retention.
Mild aroma of yeast, wheat and cloves. You get less banana and citric than usual.
Flavor is wheatier and more condimented than fruity, though I got some pears. Hints of honey and heavier on cloves, with a yeasty and dry aftertaste.
Light to medium body with medium carbonation with tiny bubbles and a spicy feeling.
A Hefeweizen that is more condimented and malty than average, and light on the fruity notes. You pick your preference, anyway good for a change.

Never seen this German brew before, until I walked into my local Costco and bought a mixed case (18 bottles) of German beer. This was one of them.

Cloudy amber, orange peel color. Decent bubblingNice two finger head after the pour. Recedes to an almost full layer of foam. The lacing is not bad.

Yeasty hint of cloves and banana peel aroma. Add some lightly toasted malt wheat bread crust. Smells sweet and a little dry.

Yeasty dryness and sweetness. Banana peels, alittle toasted malt. Well balanced and rounded. Smooth and delicate finish with good carbonation. Nothing special, but not bad either. Great for a hot Summer's day relaxing. Great drinking beer.

12oz bottle, best before 5/12/13, pours very cloudy & ruddy, yellow in color topped with a tall, white head that holds incredible retention & leaves sticky lace on the glass.
Armas are bready yeast, wheat, bubblegum, faint banana, slight clovy spice. Tastes are spicy clove, bready yeast, wheat, a little banana, finishes spicy with a tingle on the tongue. Creamy texture and nearly full bodied. Overall, pretty good, but maybe needed a degree or 2 warmer while fermenting to bring out the estery banana and bubblegum notes, while toning down the clove, as it's pretty dominant. Still a fairly decent Hefeweizen though.

Bottle from Frankfurt.

A - Towering, creamy white cap of foam. Stellar retention and lace. Hazy, opaque pear juice body. Straight hefe.

S - Dry bread, creamsicle, orange zest, banana peel.

T - Big, sweet wheat note right up front. Mango, bread crust, honey, banana bread. A nice long finish that really clings to your palate.

M - Medium body. Light lemon brightness. Thick backend.

O - A solid hefe with great smoothness.

Picked up a single at EuroMarket in Astoria for $2. It poured a murky amber with a short white head. Mmm, there's a nice juicy aroma and flavor with a mix of banana and orange peel. There's a mild spice and smooth bready undertone. The clove is mild and pleasant, but the flavors seems to drop out toward the finish. You might say it's too clean for a hefe, but I like it. The banana notes ar especially tasty without going over the top or dominating the beer. Give this a try.

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a hazy bright orange hue with a three finger frothy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured mild esters and a touch adjunct like sweetness.

The taste consisted of a subtle wheat spice and touch of esters.

The mouthfeel was toward the thinner side of the style with dome chewiness.

Overall a serviceable hefe.
