This beer pours a golden yellow with a great head of foam that lasts. It has a wonderful grainy malt aroma with hints of fruit. A nice light taste with a great full mouth that leaves you wanting more. Its color is what sets it off from all the rest as it has only a slight haze to indicate a hefeweizen. I really liked this beer.

Poured from a .5L swing top, the brew it yellow, cloudy with a nice big thick white head.

The smell is close to classic hefe, nice spice with some lemon citrus.

The taste is very good, banana, cloves and yes a lemon twist in the finish, really nice.

The mouthfeel is very good nice body and good carbonation.

The drinkability is very good even thought I am surrounded be great breweries I will visit this brew again soon.

Prosit, MK

I poured into a pils glass. The beer created quite a head that stayed for 5 minutes. The beer had a hazy orange-yellow hue.

The banana and clove smell are balanced on the nose; and banana and clove sit upfront when drinking, fading quickly to a lemon peel finish.

Smooth mouthfeel with ample carbonation that sustained to the end.

This is an OK hefe that works but leaves you wanting to try others' efforts at the style.

500ml bottle. Weizen glass. Pale gold color, foggy appearance. White, close, foamy & lasting crown. Aroma & flavor shows citric, banana, grain, bread & herbal notes. Crispy & watery upfront. Light body. Moderate carbonation. Underliying acidic touch & unbalanced mouthfeel. Citric juice on the aftertaste.

This beer pours a honey orange and gold that is bright, yet cloudy. Smells of sour limes, bananas, dry wheat and some sort of astringent. Tastes pleasantly sour with wheat and marshmallows with a tangy dry finish. The mouth feel is thin with a crisp carbonation.

Das Weizen pours with a great amount of bright white foam that sticks together quite nicely. The body is a light bauge color and is quite hazy. Even after a moderate pour there is still a lot of carbonation activity.

Strangly, there is more of a smokey aroma to this beer, more so than any other trait.

This brew is very light in taste. There is a slight orangish taste, much less than banana or bubble gum character.

This is a decent hefe and makes for a good choice for somebody wanting to cross over from lagers to another arena.

Pours a pale murcky orange, with a big thick white head. Smells pleasantly of cloves and bananas. Taste has a lot of cloves and is somewhat spicy, with enough banana to keep it together. The aftertaste is spicy. The mouthfeel is medium with ample carbonation. Overall, this is an average hefe. As I prefer a juicier hefe, this beer is too spicy for me.

A- Perfect sunny orange hazy color with perfect white,long lasting big white foam. One of the best beer looks i ever saw.

S-A bit tiny aroma,there is usual smells for Weizen,banana mostly,but it's not that intensive.

T/M-Very drinkable beer. Pleasant tastes of grains,fruits and crispy aftertaste.

O-Again,this is very good Hefeweizen. This is one of my favorite stiles,so maybe i am bit more subjective.

Cloudy lemon-yellow, decent head, no lace.

The smell is typical wheaty-hefeness.

Hefe? Hell? Yes! All the typical attributes of a German Hefe with less astringency. Pleasantly light, without the feel of wateriness.

Better mouthfeel and drinkability than most wheat beers, and understandably so.

Imagine a hefeweizen that may have been produced from inferior ingredients and was not the highest priority of the brewer. The nose hints of traditional wheat beer scents, but the taste leaves much to be desired compared to other German-produced hefeweizens. If you're a young servicemember who's found themselves stationed in Germany, and you've never tried a hefe before, this may be a gentle way to introduce yourself to the style. On the other hand, if you've experienced the "Big Leagues" of hefeweizens here in Europe, you might want to make another selection.
