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

A: The beer is hazy pale yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down but consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of bananas are present in the nose along with some notes of wheat.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the wheat flavors are stronger than the bananas and there also are some additional flavors of apples. No cloves are detectable.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and has some refreshing properties, but I wouldn't consider it to be thirst-quenching. It lacks the complexity exhibited by the top beers of the style but isn't a bad hefeweizen if you like basic flavors of wheat and bananas.

Can: Poured a light yellowish color weizen with a nice pure white foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of light bubblegum notes with some wheat malt. Taste is also dominated by light notes of wheat with some light bubblegum ester. Body is too light for style with good carbonation. This is too watery to be interesting with a serious lack of character.

This is an ok Weissbier, Not too much to say about it that hasn't already been said. The fluffy white head gives off a soft fruity smell, light spicy notes as well. The beer is opaque and yellowish gold. This is a pretty tradtional brew though and it's not bad.

Pours a fully clouded brown gold with a huge white head that falls, but sticks around for a little bit. Nose is earthy and tar-like yeast. Flavor is a bit lighter at the start than I would have figured with what I got on the nose and how it looks. It lifts itself up fairly quickly though. Lemon tones with a fairly strong yeast body. Very mild tar on there. But the aftertaste is what is really key here. Man does it stick around. Feel is nice and smooth on the liquid and with a decent bubble. Pretty drinkable. Smooth and even and well made. Nothing showy at all. Just a decent hefe. Worth a shot.

Can into Budweiser pint glass (all that was available) in low altitude Galway, Ireland. Reviewed live.

A: Four finger head of nice cream and thickness. Above average retention. Hazy standard weissbier muted orange colour.

Sm: Wheat with hints of citrusy esters, though less pronounced than in other weissbeers. A rather light scent.

T: Cream-laden wheat with some mild citrus esters, mainly orange and little else. A bit watery on account of too much thin cream. Pretty simple. Balanced decently but built poorly.

Mf: Nicely slightly coarse, but too wet. The watery aspect of this beer is a severe problem.

Dr: The esters need to be brought out more. The cream is unwelcome in this style. It's affordable in Ireland, but not a great beer. Go with the Lidl grafenwalder if you're looking to get bollocksed on a cheap hefeweissbier.

The beer pours a cloudy gold color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It's got a light pale and wheat malt scent along with a wonderful yeast aroma. The banana and clove esters really stand out in this one. The taste is great. It has smooth, malty flavor that goes down easy and finishes fruity with some light breadlike character. The malt bill seems a bit more complex than your average hefe. The yeast offers up a nice array esters that climax in the finish. The mouthfeel is good. It is a medium/full bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is one of the best hefes I've had in some time. It's easy drinking and full of flavor.

Mid sized bottle. w/o freshness/brewing date info. Pours darker apricot/sludgy brown, cloudy , under a wonderful puffy one inch head, that stays. It slowly eases into a mottled pillow of light khaki froth and leaves a mustache tickling pillow on top of this tasty offering. Plenty of strands of stick. Nose is the expected fruity, yeasty melange. Nice tasting and easy drinking German wheat. Bananas, light cloves/coriander all add to the fun. On the lighter side adding to easy drinkability. Helped wash down a chicken sausage sandwedge with ease. First time I've tried this one and I like it. Well worth a try.

Valentins weisbier

LOOK: 16.9 oz bottle poured into a weizen glass. Hazed deep cloudy straw color. White foam forms, and gradually recedes. Looks sexy in its proper glass, perhaps a shade or two darker than the norm.

SMELL: Estery clove, cotton candy, herbal elements and rustic bread. Some clean German yeast makes itself known.

TASTE: Cotton candy, full grain bread, green banana, clove. Handsomely flavorful and very true to the style. The sweet grains add a nice bit of mustiness to the beer as well as depth. Hop flavor is leafy and herbal, with a well suiting complimentary bitterness.

This is a very fine Hefeweizen, with rich flavor and fine balance. Paired very nicely with a meat and cheese platter. I'm sure ill be drinking this again. Excellent hefe.

BB 27/02/2008, served chilled in a weizen glass.

A: a cloudy dark orangey-yellow hue comes with a slowly-retreating off-white pillowy head and rather moderate carbonation; not bad in appearance.
S: mildly sour mangos and a lightly dusty note come first, ensued by rich, sour-sweet note of yeasty drinks, grainy wheats, and an intensifying flow of sugary malts. Very fruity and sweet, while the hardly recognisable spicy edge of clove hides itself a bit TOO well.
T: powdery and light wheatiness and mild caramel make the entrance, soon followed by a thin wave of sour-sweet yeasty-fruits (denoting passion-fruits, mangos, and a little bit of bananas), while in a remote corner also lingers a mild white-peppery spiciness. The finish is short but pleasantly dryish-sweet and clean. Overall, not bad at all.
M&D: quite soft in terms of fizziness apart from being slightly thin in the aftertaste, making this a relaxing weizen to enjoy; where the complexity is somewhat lacking, the soothing mouthfeel makes up for it. Well worth a try - as a session weizen!

Poured a cloudy medium straw hue with a four finger foamy white head. There was very good retention and good lacing.

The smell featured an estery yeast typified by banana nd clove aromas.

The taste consisted of a soft, yet spicy yeast, and an earthy and estery yeast. Decent doughy finish.

The mouthfeel typical of the style with a slight chewiness.

Overall a tasty and authentic hefe.

I brought a 500ml can home from a recent trip to Europe. The beer poured a cloudy deep golden color, good head that dissapates quickly. Smell is includes cloves and fainted hint of banana, lemon and spices. The mouthfeel is light to medium body with the taste similar to the smell, with more banana being more pronounced. Not the best I've tried, but one you can drink easily.

500ml Can

Appearance - Hazy gold/amber colour with a large size fizzy white coloured head. I can't make out much carbonation due to the haziness and there isn't much lacing. The head lasted for 5 minutes.

Smell – Breads/grains, cloves, oranges, bananas, lemons

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an average amount of carbonation. I can taste lemon zest and orange mixed with breads/grains and some cloves. There is also some light banana flavour and it finishes with a citrus spicy aftertaste.

Overall – This is a very drinkable beer that would work well as a summer refresher. It won't blow you away but it's very serviceable and the price is reasonable. I'd buy it again.

A white, fluffy, abundant head. Quite carbonated, with a lot of thin rising bubbles. Hazy orange.
The smells tends to be sweet, with sugary notes of banana. Some medicinal notes (band-aid). Wheat, and yeast.
Same notes in the taste. Sweet.
Sweet again, and boring, in the aftertaste.
Not to inviting, and definitely not interesting.

Pours a dirty golden color with a nice white head that dissipated into a nice cap but left no lacing. The smell is typical hefe, good banana, bubble gum and clove smell, juicy, very nice hefe aromas. The taste is unfortunately not as great as the smell. The taste is of banana cream pie but is cut short by a sharp green apple bitterness, a bit malty. The feel is light but not watery, a nice wheat edge, finishes very balanced. A very good hefe, could use some more banana, bubble gum or clove flavors. Respectful.

From a large brown bottle, this brew is a murky, cloudy gold color with a puffy white head. The head produces a fine lace. Nice aroma too...a bit of banana, loads of yeast, a touch of sweet citrus, and a lot of bread and flour. It's a raw and unrefined smell, but it's quite good...a bit wild. The taste is earthy and rustic, with lots of lemon, orange, and yeast flavors. It's like a baking bread mixed with orange and lemon peels. There's also a bit of smoke in the background of the taste. It's odd and a bit misplaced, but I like it a lot. The body is a bit heavier than others of the style, with quite a lot of carbonation. A bit lighter would have been more appropriate. This is a fine beverage.

Color towards brown, a little unusual for wheat beers styles.
Flavour is initially hit by banana, bread and yeast, then it follows by citric notes, and cloves for last.
Light body and tiny bubbles.
A little more sweet than others wheat beet styles.
