2.83/5  rDev -32%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a pilsner glass. Reviewed from notes.

A- Healthy three finger white fluffy head. Clouded orange-yellow color.

S- Wheat, hay and lemon notes. Possibly some banana and cloves which would make sense.

T- Lemony and a grassy flavor. The wheat is strong and the banana is subtle but present.

M-Light and well carbonated.

O- Decent weisse. Had better.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.25

This is a decent beer, but I don't understand all the 4+ scores - there are far better hefes out there.

Bright gold beer under a soft, monster big pillowy head. Just a slight bit of haze to the beer, much clearer than many hefes. A minimum of spotty lace as you go.

Nice hefe nose, but again, not as spicy or interesting as a lot of comparable brews. Taste is very subdued. Some of the banana/clove/bread thing going, but again . . .

Also an unusual caramel-like flavour present. Mouthfeel surprisingly watery.

Way under performs against others of the style. I love hefes, but I wouldn't put this on my list as a go to brew. Disappointing.

3.08/5  rDev -26%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured a golden yellow with a thick foamy head. Body was unusually translucent for a hefe weizen.

Aromas of hops, banana and clove dominated.

Flavors were generally weak overall. Some hops and lemon were noticeable.

Body was rather thin and quite over carbonated. (The carbonation seemed to sting my mouth).

Overall, a disappointment.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Rich creamy head that lasts. Pale translucent gold color. Has the bannanaish aroma that is typical of a wheat beer. Taste is dry and refreshing with some mineral water aftertaste. Fine carbonation gives it a good mouth feel. Goes down easy.A good drinkable representative of the style.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

12oz. brown bottle poured into Weizen glass.

A: Cloudy yellow/orange with large creamy white head, which turns to a one finger head and stay's that way.

S: Yeast and wheat are strong. Very light hops with good amount of citric fruits.

T/M: Smooth, yeasty and a taste of citrus can be found. The back end is kind of dry. I don't know what kind of hops are being used but they are very minimal. Wheat is the main ingredient here.

D: Good. I'm not really a Hefeweizen enthusiast and i usually don't buy any. I gave a few extra points as to not bring this beers rating down.

3.15/5  rDev -24.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Hazy lemony yellow coloured body, and a massive foamy pure white head. The carbonation is very intense.

Aroma: Lots of sharp citrus, lemony wheat, and Bananas. There are plenty of spices, possibly cloves. Definite yeasty acidic aromas, and a subtle honey base.

Taste: The flavours are very wheaty, and a bit like liquid bread, with lots of yeast. There is a sourness, which is like weak lemon, with an almost muted banana sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Light and clean, with a lot of liveliness on the palete.

Drinkability: Great looking beer but a bit disappointed with the taste, which is somewhat bland and lacking punch. I expected a lot from this beer given the reputation it has for being an example for all other wheat beers. Will look to try it again, just to give to another chance.

3.21/5  rDev -22.8%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Light bronze. Reminiscent of Dos Equis or something similar with no head or lacing.

Wheat, banana, caramel. Light and somewhat generic.

Taste is a light hefeweizen but with the wheatish taste it's very witbierish.

Mouthfeel is light and watered down. Refreshing but very simple. Great session beer.

Not a particular fan of hefeweizens, I suppose this must be one of the better ones however.

I ordered this one in a Lexington pizza and beer joint, Pazzo's (which I'd highly recommend for both) The appearance? Quite bizzare. The waitress brought us this thick, murky-looking brew (thick and murky despite its pale yellow and orange coloring) with a thick, slightly yellow head and...a sliver of lemon. (???) The lemon was gingerly removed and discarded. Smells strongly of hops and bitterness and (as one might expect from seeing the lemon slice) of citrus. The taste was not bitter, but rather astoundingly, grotesquely sweet. It tasted like someone dropped a bunch of Pez into it. Definitely caught me off guard. It's a shame, I'd rather like this beer, sans Pez. The sweetness was just too much.

3.33/5  rDev -20%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Appearance: Pours a very pale, lemon yellow with a surprisingly nice foamy, fizzy head that sticks around a bit.

Smell: A lighter apple aroma with some hints of wheat. Very pleasant.

Taste: Faint hints of the stereotypical banana/bubblegum hefe flavors, but they really aren't up front. Some tart apple flavors show up with a bit of wheat in the background. Nothing spectacular...

Mouthfeel: Very light, fizzy and refreshing. More carbonated that I expected, but still very good.

Drinkability: The main thing that detracts from the drinkability is the way the carbonation attacks your mouth. The beer goes down easy and doesn't sit heavy, but not something I would want more than one of.

Overall, not a bad hefe. Moderately refreshing and drinkable, but not much in the way of taste or complexity. I may revisit this one once it gets warmer next year...
