Hazy straw yeloow in color. Lots of effervesence allowed the bright white head to stay and then hold a nice cap. Not a hint of lacing in may sample though.

Kind of sweet and bready aroma with a hint of spiciness.


Quick bight from the fizziness, but then settles into a nice smoothness that allows the classic banana, peper and citrus flavor to come through although not as strong as some hefe's. Sweet maltiness and some lemony flavors come back to the palate before receding into a nice slighty dry finish.

fizzy mouthfeel initially, but it ends very quickly. Very smooth and drinkable.

A unique tasting hefe...

Bottle purchased at Karstadt in Darmstadt, Hessen (Germany)

Pours a very hazy, murky lemon gold. A full head with perfect lace, this is a mighty beautiful beer.

A mild, though very nice nose. Pepper, clove, bread yeasts, and a faint marijuana aroma.

Despite the pepper in the nose, I get very little spice in the mouth. Orange, citrus, and mild breads are all present. The mouthfeel is a little over carbonated at first, but then the bubbles fade surprisingly quickly, and the beer ends a little watery.

Overall a well balanced beer, finely made, and very enjoyable to drink. The flavors, though a little mild, blend together very nicely for a finely crafted hefe.

Poured into an Ayinger Weizen glass.

A: Very cloudy gold. The mild carbonation is joined by a swirling cloud of yeast. A small and dense white head forms than never fully dissipates. Leaves occasional spots of lace.

S: There's a lot of lemon in the nose, plus pears, cloves and just a hint of banana.

T: Light, crisp and refreshing sums this one up. Starts out with a dry biscuit flavor. A light lemon and clove bitterness follows. Pear and apple ride underneath. Finishes tart, dry and lemony.

M: The body is both chewy and grainy. The carbonation is right where it should be.

D: This is a nice unassuming hefe. The light flavors and low ABV make it go down quick. Perfect for a hot summer day after a stint with the mower.

Pours a beautiful, hazy golden color with fluffy white head. The smell is muted, but definitely a hefe-weizen: lemon peel and spices. Tastes of sour lemon, a hint of sweet banana bread, and clove. Tastes very fresh and light, with the typical high carbonation of this style. As it warms, I notice, it gets more commplex. The nose is definitely banana bread. The sourness and earthy yeasts become more pronounced, while the bready sweetness remains. Very refreshing. Very unique hefeweizen. Great summer beer!

Poured out a sexy dirty blonde color and is extremely cloudy, contains mild carbonation and is topped off with a nice thick head that quickly subsides to create a thin layer of bubbles. This beer is a proud owner of some very good lacing… the aroma is light over all, hints a citrus and berry fruits are present, some grass and wheat come through just not as strong. Its light and crisp on the tongue, faintly tart throughout, but very pleasing. It is sweet overall and the flavors are a bit mild, some lemon and orange zest comes through, some grass flavors but not much else. It as a light mouth feel and goes down very well, very smooth. This is a very refreshing beer.

Pours a hazy, maize color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of dry hop, wheat, slight sweet malt, hint of yeast, and a hint of pale malt. Fits the style of a Hefeweizen. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of dry hop, sweet malt, slight earthy malt, slight hop, and hint of yeast. Overall, good aroma and blend.

A surprising hefeweizen. Big wheat and low barley character. Creates a lightly tart, highly citrus and acidic drink. Slightly fizzy and efforvescent. Sweeter to the smell than the flavor. Very fruity, berry-like and tart. Though cove-like and tropical fruit-like, it is very much lighter in body and pleasantly astringent. A light hint of peaches, apricots, papayas, and pears. Not at all grainy or out of balance. Very crisp and clean in the finish without much of a drying sensation. A must try for all Wheat Beer fans.

The pour a nicely “Chill Hazed” golden amber color, the head impressive in size, its consistency creamy and the resultant lace very thick and long lasting sheets to smother the glass. Grain musk, yeast, orange peel, crisp and fresh also sweet and a very pleasant nose I must say. Sweet and lightly tart at the front, the top middling in its feel, the finish nicely carbonated, just right with the hops prominent in their spicy bite, dry and lingering aftertaste, once again a quite quaffable beer and well worth the sample.

1 Pint, .9 fl oz bottle copped singly from Gary's in Madison for $2.75...
Heard a lot of different things about this beer, so I was interested in giving this a go... Actually have seen this sample in books by the beer hunter Michael Jackson...
A steady pour resulted in a straw-colored, hazy, cloudy, bright-yellow hue with no head at all, which was dissapointing for a Hefe and hardly any lacing either...
Decent aroma of raw wheat and citrus noticeable along with essences of ripe fruit and pears...
Taste strongly complemented the flavor, with nuances of lemon, citrus, coriander, wheat, honey, and sugars... What I really liked about the flavor was that it was very rich and creamy...
Thick, creamy mouthfeel that seemed pretty well-balanced and in-check...
Easy drinkability with a modest ABV... Certainly not the best representation of the style, but a decent sample nonetheless... "USDA Certified Organic"...

Pours out a hazy lemony-color with a very active foamy head. I took my time pouring it the same way as the Weiss biers were presented to me in Germany- no glass tilting, straight pour-then wait. Head remains quite foamy, looks very inviting and refreshing. Tart, sour cloves, lemon ,banana,wheat yeasts on the nose. Taste is actually just little dissapointing. It is acutally kind of watery, some lemons, hint of banana coming through. The underwheming flavor is kind of a booster in drinkabitlity, I drink these all summer long, and its like sparkling lemonade. I would reccommend this brew as an intro to Hefes, to our Heine-drinking compadres.

Good call for a summer brew....
Appearance is cloudy and golden with head the goes away completely after a few minutes
Smell is lemon grass, wheat and yeast. Almost tangy!
Taste is slightly bitter but better than Widmer.
Mouthfeel - drink in the summer, this is good when very cold
Drinkability- yeah in the summer time.
