Poured into a Weißbier glass. Hazy yellow at the bottom (thinnest part of the glass) and a lightly dark orange at the top. Beautiful color. Head doesn't remain long.
Smell: Sweet and yeasty, slightly heavy.
Taste: Surprisingly bitter (not in a pleasant way). not sweet. Relatively bland with a bitter/acidic mildly unpleasant aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Acidic and dry.
Drinkability: Yes, it's drinkable, but not particularly enjoyable. Will doctor up with fresh lemon.
On the upside, the bottle is beautiful.

This beer is an amazingly cloudy and golden. The head is thick and off white with spread out. The aroma has a lot of clove and some herbal esters. The flavor is an odd buttery, corny and has some banana clove tones. The body is somewhat thick. It also has a lot of carbonation that gives it some bite.

This weizen pours with perfect presentation: fluffy white head, with cloudy golden body. Aromas are banana, bubble gum, and slightly perfumy. The flavors detected are of banana and a slight bit of orange. This does feel a litttle bit syrupy and powdery.

Pours a cloudy pale orange color with a nice big white head. Smells of citrus fruits. The taste is quite watery for a hefe. There is a hint of citrus flavors, but not much else. There is also a faint metallic taste that is unpleasant. There is no aftertaste what so ever. The mouthfeel is medium-thin, thinner than I like a hefe to be. Overall, this brew is smooth, but not a flavorful as I like my hefes.

A-Dark golden color, almost as honey. Unclear.
White foam, but not so tick and big as you could expect from Hefe.
S-Orange, babana, grains and wheat. Sweet aroma.
T/M- Creamy, fool of tastes in the mouth. Tipycal Hefeweiz aroma.
A right amount of carbonation and bitterness. Some sourness.
O- More then decent.

500ml bottle 4,9% Abv.
Served chilled in an oversized wine glass.
Best Before: 04/04/2013
Appearance: Sanwald Hefeweizen pours as murky golden colour, with a rough pour generating a massive off white head. The head lasts fairly well and leaves some nice rings of lacing as it recedes.
Smell: Hmmm, this doesn’t smell all that good. The nose is very weak (even at room temperature) and seems to have more in common with a pale lager than a well brewed weizen. Notes include: Pale grain, a floury note, a little lemon and a touch of banana.
Taste: Blegh, this is certainly one of the worst German brewed weizens I have had. Grainy notes dominate the flavor, with only a little of the typical banana and clove flavours. The finish is distinctly watery.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied, with a high level of carbonation.
Overall: Sanwald is probably the worst German brewed weizen that I have had and it is certainly not a beer I would buy again.

Classic hazy yellow color, with a white head, average in compactness and retention.
Some banana in the smell, with wheat, yeast (the classic weizen flavour).
The taste is quite citric, with some banana again. Average in all. Just a hint of pepper?
More citric in the aftertaste, maybe some pepper. Wheat.
