3.7/5  rDev +3.6%

First impression was that it did not look completely like a Hefe. It seemed lighter in appearance and not quite cloudy enough, also a very limited head that was quickly gone. Smell was similar, seemed to have a rich smell but not very strong. Taste followed the look and smell. Not quite the tasty flavor that you want if you hefe. Kinda a light version, one word description would be bland. There was a little bit of tart which seemed more like a berliner weiss which is more of what it looked like. On the positive side it is very clean, crisp, and easy to drink. Overall, not as rich as you want in a hefe but a pretty good, enjoyable beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance- Poured a golden pale color with a thin head which disappeared quickly.

Smell- Yeast and citrus. Not powerful the smell was a bit lacking.

Taste-. Not much taste to it but man was it refreshing. A bit of bitterness and citrus.

Mouthfeel- Thin and carbonated.

Drinkability-This wasn't a bad beer but I can pick up a hefe for cheaper that has better taste to it. It isn't bad though. Put a little shot of Cointreau in there and there you go!

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...

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

From a 500 ml bottle (code says 9313N09) into a hefe glass.

A-A normal pour produces a thin head of barely one finger of white foam. The head drops quickly to a cap that hangs around for a bit. The brew is a bit dull looking with a dijon mustard hue as a result of the yeast.

S-The smell is surprisingly sharp and grassy for a hefe. There is very little clove/banana going on here. Just a bit of lemon and grain.

T-The taste is also light on the banana/clove yeast, but there is a bit of doughy yeast. The main flavor remains a grainy lemon with a bit of astringent grass/straw. It is certainly different from many hefes, but not entirely unpleasant...almost pils like at times.

M-The feel is a bit watery with soft, moderate carbonation and a medium heft. It is really drinkable, however, which is what I want in a hefe.

O-This is a pretty mediocre beer but it has some interesting characteristics. The graininess and lack of typical hefe yeast flavors is disappointing, but the feel is pretty good and goes a long way towards making up for the lackluster smell and taste. Maybe it is the "organic" label working into my subconscious, but I feel like this beer actually tastes like the ingredients that go into it, and not like some magical potion. Weird.

pours a lemon like haze with a huge rocky white head, looks delicious. leaves a nice spotty lace throughout the drinking experiance. smells a tad citrus like with a light malty aroma. the flavor was light, tangy...reminded me of a wit beer. like the nose there is a nice light malt (think quality euro lager i.e. weihenstephaner) a tad yeasty and finishes with a nice lemon zest. nicely carbonated, bubbly in the mouth. i can picture this being an awesome refreshing summer time brew. puts me in a good mood.

paid $1.99 a bottle.

Pours hazy golden yellow with a thick white head. Smells organic; yeasty malt, faint clove and other phenols. Kind of grassy and herbal, in both aroma and taste, as opposed to other German hefes. Nicely balanced. Mouthfeel is light and spritzy. Rather thin for a hefeweizen, but nonetheless good, overall. A good summer sessioner.

Serving Type- bottle poured into a 0.5L weissen glass

appearance- a clear pour looking like a light, straw yellow. Nice head at first with quickly disappeared leaving no lace at all.

smell- very mild, similar to champagne and lemons. not much to the aroma

taste/mouthfeel- strongest flavor is definitely lemon. Light body with slightly to little carbonation.

drinkability- very smooth and enjoyable, though lacking in appearance and aroma. still enjoyed drinking it

Let me begin by saying this hefe poured beautifully!!! Wonderful typical hefeweizen colour with a lovely tight-knit white head. Plenty of sediment. This had a BIG yeast smell. In fact, it smell almost identical to the premeasured wads of dough we would separate out in my Pizza Hut days. The taste? I have had better hefeweizens before in my lifetime. This certainly wasn't awful, but there are better selections available. The mouthfeel is incredible!! Very, Very smooth. Almost creamy. I feel I could drink several of these in a sitting, though I likely never will since I absolutely love Tucher's line of hefeweizens a little better. Over all, not a bad hefe.

500 ml bottle, bought at Real Foods, Edinburgh. ABV is 5.0%. Like all Pinkus Müller beers, it is organic. Cloudy pale yellow colour, huge white head. Strong and typical hefeweizen aroma, spicy notes of cloves and banana, hints of farmhouse and oak. Soft mouthfeel. Wheaty flavour, subdued cloves and banana, moderate sweetness. Another good hefeweizen, but not the very best.
