Had a few left over when last visited Germany. I think its freshness is past due. Still, an enjoyable overall beer. Light and crisp. decent mouthfeel and Aroma. nothing that really stood out.A lot of cloudiness in glass. I would buy again, but would try others first. Sorry this review isn't too helpful.

3.7/5  rDev -0.3%

500ml bottle poured into a weizen glass

a: nice pale orange color with a frothy and bubbly white head. seems quite carbonated. settles to a bubbly half finger.

s: a nice fruitiness - banana and light citrus such as lemon, some yeastiness as well, a bready wheatiness as well. banana comes through really nicely.

t: a clean wheatiness, less banana than in the nose, more cloves here. a high carbonation gave it a prickly bite which to me took away from what could have given more complexity and subtlety to the beer. quite refreshing, however.

o: quite refreshing, classic weizen, very intriguing aromas, but the high carbonation turned me off a bit.

Trying as many Hefe's as I can, this one is another, brought back from a trip to Germany.

Golden hazy colour, decent head, decent lacing.
Smell of bread and yeast, citrus and clove.
Taste is similar. It's bittersweet, but not too pronounced.

Light body, crisp, clean, refreshing.

Balanced, but fairly simple. I would say it needs a bit more body, aroma and flavour

3.6/5  rDev -3%

Pours pale honey with slight hazy, strange fizzy head that dissappears unusually fast for Hefeweizen. Aroma is lively spicy clove and banana, also citrus.

Taste is spicy wheat with plenty of fruit, somewhat slightly worse than smell. Mouthfeel is medium with prickly more than average carbonation.

Overall, a rather strange Hefe, I did not like the appearance and also the flavour seems to be quite unusual.

Eyes:
Pale clover honey with swirls of ample trüb. Sculpted head which towered more than an inch above the rim with enough of the goods to stay that way for ~5 minutes. Could have been longer but she was willing and I was weak. Left long frilly trails reminiscent of beer hall garland.

Nose:
Really rich with sweet malt and banana bread, caramel hops top note.

Tongue:
Smooth, robust and deliciously classic weizen flavors, extremely well balanced with enough sweetness to anchor the aroma squarely on the palate. By the time it reaches the back of the tongue its becomes intrigueingly hoppy and crisp. It has the easy natural balance of flavors typical of a really good craft brew; exactly that which eludes nearly every commercial brewing enterprise.

I suppose it would pair nicely with a meal of Manna from heaven. No,this beer deserves your full attention.

Belch:
Malty sweet. My wife somehow doesn't agree.

Overall, this is a great beer. Classic Hefeweizen character with lots of soul, terrifically balanced with a flourish of hops. Most beers in this vein lack any real hops flavor, and its one of the few things I miss from my barley brew days. Its depth of flavor and intensity in my opinion rivals the gold standard in Hefeweizen brewed by Weihenstephan.

Serving type: 0,5 liter bottle

It pours hazy and brass colored with an off-white head and lace. The head and lace are super frothy. It has a wonderful spicy aroma. This beer has a strong banana and citrus ester. There is quite a bit of complexity to the flavor as a whole. There are the usual German wheat flavor but they compliment each other in this beer very well. There is a very mild bitterness. Yeasty bread like flavor seems work with the fruitiness. It has a creamy and full feel.

I had the pleasure of enjoying this in a glass in Munich's Shamrock Irish Pub (Prost Jackson [the bartender]).

The beer had a cloudy and superlative wheat appearance. After the giant creamy head had dropped, I was able to get my nose in there and enjoy the tangy and spicy aroma. Flavor was jammed with cloves and banana.
An incredibly smooth beer with some serious complexity.

so smooth and heavenly. You must try this one fresh.

4/5  rDev +7.8%

Poured a huge oatmeal colored head that was big even for a Hefe Weizen. Hazy golden beer with and apricot hue. Inviting aroma of yeasty bananas over fresh spring flowers. Clean wheat flavor along with a bit of yeast. Finishes with a dash of lemon and some tangy carbonic acid. It's filled with carbonation giving it a light and bubble mouthfeel. The first of a few beers recommended to me by one of the locals. If this is any indication today will be a good day. Just a hair towards the lighter end of the style, but still plenty flavorful and enjoyable. Grab one if you get the chance.

Italy

2.45/5  rDev -34%

Hazy dark orange; decent head, maybe not very compact.
The smell is banana, yeast, breadcrust; slightly unbalanced toward the sweetness.
The taste is again some sweet. But an excessive carbonation covers it all (maybe some light spiciness, camomile?).
It slips away in the mouth easily, almost without traces. The aftertaste too is quickly fading away, lefting just a hint of banana, maybe marzipan, and just a trace of lactic in the back.

3.58/5  rDev -3.5%

Large foamy head on a hazy orange slightly glittering color. Wheat and yeast in the smell. Very dry. Bananas and some grapefruit in the taste, some oranges, with less of a wheat aspect than what I expected from the smell. Mouthfeel is very creamy, but the beer leaves a slightly skunky aftertaste, thicker than other weizen. Decent, but could be really better.
