Pale gold. Fine white foam. Hazy but not cloudy, no eddys of yeast whirling in the glass.

Fruity aroma w/ a bit of spice. I can't put my finger on it but not he usual banana-clove affair. Sort of fruity and floral? Nice, if not traditional.

Surpised to find a pleasant sweetness that complements the aromas, lingering on the palate before a crisp tart finish is delivered.

A bit of carbonation tingle in the mouth. Leaves a slight chalky, mouth drying feel that makes one want another sip.

This is a yummy, easy drinker.

Saw the label and had to try this discount 500 bottle

A- hazy yellow but somehow crisp. Really pretty looks

S- bubblegum! I finally pick it up well in this one and it's great

T- same as the smell very very nice. Can't better than this

M- the hops and dryness come through with the great carbonation

O - man now this is the German hefe to try! Best so far

Nice big bottle poured into a standard pint glass.

A: Super cloudy tan with a marshmellow head that disappeared quickly but left nice lacing.

S: Sour dough bread, bananas and slight notes of almonds.

T: Yeasty, somewhat watery body contains lots of fresh dough, lemons and a nutty character in the finish.

Drinkability: Exceptionally easy to drink without being boring at all.

Value: I wish they'd make this one in a six pack form. The individual bottles are a little pricey.

Veeerrrry different.
Bright creamy yellow color.
Right away the aromatics are seductive as they offer a very untainted hot-cereal richness, then push back with lemon-head and lemoncello brightness. Buttery, milky, oaty flavors are decorated with bitter citrus peel and grapeseed oil. Quite a stunning composition, and utterly convincing as something that is NOT the result of shortcuts. Slap good ingredients together and this is what you get. The movement from deep, satiny maltiness to doughy white breadiness to ripe twigginess is absolutely seamless.
And I think this bottle was stressed.

I could have sworn that I reviewed the Pinkus line of beers at one point, bottle be darned if I CAN find them!

I agitated the beer in the bottle before I poured, but even at that, I just got a finger of bone-white head that quickly became wisps. Color was a VERY cloudy orangish-yellow. Nose was unlike any hefeweizen I can remember - it had a honey-like lager sweetness! Mouthfeel was medium-to-full and had a lemony tartness on the tongue. I swear, I was reviewing a hefeweizen because that is what it had on the label! Man, this was right out of left field and I liked it. I will openly cop to liking any hefeweizen that does not go heavy on the banana/bubble gum esters and it is possible to do so. Finish was still slightly tart and highly refreshing. This was so unlike any of the others that I could not help but like it.

500 ml bottle poured into a wiezen glass, the Organic Hefe-Weizen is cloudy straw yellow with a tight,creamy white head that leaves moderate lace. Nice glow to the color, perfect for this warm, spring afternoon.

Smell is very floral, lots of wheat, a bit sour, minerals and yeast. As it warms, the wheat looses out to the sugars and flowers, saison like.

Taste is nice and yeasty, spicy clove, wheaty and malty. This is a very nice hefe, but quite a bit different then I was expecting, with none of the classic banana esters, and even the clove not as dominant as the actual wheat. This is yeasty, not estery, which leaves a bit of a coating in the mouth. The floral sweetness leaves a bit of a witbier/saison aftertaste, which I frankly very much enjoy. In fact, I'll probably have one of those with dinner!

Mouthfeel is crisp, carbonated and yeasty - fairly full.

Drinkability is pretty good for me, I really enjoy the taste, probably because it's more belgian then barvarian. I'd think that some hefe fans would be disappointed though.

A: 4 fingers of rich, meringue like head. Foggy yellow gold in color. Nice broad lacing.

S: Lemons and muted wheat. A bit tangy/sour.

T: Starts out a little sour, but gently mutes itself into a really subtle lemon meringue, not tart or bitter or anything at all. As if the flavor just evaporates into nothingness. Really peculiar.

M: Nice medium body with foamy rich tongue-exfoliating bubbles ;) The mouth feel on this brew is something truly unique. It's the first beer I've tried that actually cleans up after itself... a palate cleanser.

O: This is a fantastic, clean Hefeweizen. Great for those who want to dive into the German beer world without getting their hands too dirty. Somehow you feel cleaner afterwards...

The Pinkus hefe-weizen pours a cloudy yellow body beneath a full head of rocky, bright-white froth that holds extremely well (buoyed by the effervescent carbonation rising quickly from beneath), and settles to a creamy 1/4" lid. Unfortunately, it leaves very little more than a few spots and splashes of lace here and there about the glass.

The nose is not as bold as some other examples, but it still offers the same components... wheat malt, lemon, and very mild clove (but not much banana at all).

In the mouth it's delicately effervescent and tingly, then smooth; which can be a nice change from some examples that are a bit bristly.

The flavor is also a touch muted, but very nicely sweetish and rounded; with some sweet malt, lemony zest, some spic & floral hops, and a note of vanilla. It's bitterness is kept low-key; and it finishes smooth with a slowly receeding tide of malty sweetness and lemon. The flavor could be more pronounced and full, but then it wouldn't be as soft, light, and drinkable as it is! And it wouldn't be as unique!

What an amazing surprise!

A= cloudy light yellow, traditional Heffe small foamy head but a little more dense. Tons of lacing inside the entire glass during every gulp.

S= unique and very interesting, smells like asparagus when first poured! Nice rich scents of hops florals, malts and other notes to explore.

T= asparagus again, in the first few sips. Great tasting and complex flavors, slight pepper. For a Heffe it's modestly creamy thick and malty, slightly sweet. Not much carbonation bite, which I appreciate about this beer.

M= clean, with light hints of the complex and rich flavors.

D= I think anyone who likes good Heffe could session all day and night on this.

I feel like this was the kind of taste that Sam Adams was going for with their Summer Ale. This one is, however much better in my opinion. In fact this is my favorite Hefe yet. Pinkus(what a cool name) poured the most hazy, summer shade of yellow with a feather light white head. The smell was a mix between apricot and peach with a yeasty bread like malt undertow. The taste was so pure and crisp, but with a creamy finish. The malts dissolved on my tongue with a little bit of lemon flavored bitterness to offset the pure malts. And this beer is organic! How great is that? Definitely my new summer beer of choice along with the Gearys.

This is one of the most impressive Weizens I've had in recent years. The wheat taste is very clean and not all that much of a yeasty flavor like many others. Pours beautifully, cloudy honey color with an impressive head. There is a very defined banana aroma to this beer and most notably as it warms to room temp. This will be for certain one of my new favorites of Weizens, along with Schneider Weisse. Both outstanding in their style.
