look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a weizen glass.

A - Pours a cloudy golden brown with three fingers of dense white head. Head has excellent retention and leaves nice lacing.

S - Huge banana aroma, along with a nice bready yeast, a bit of tropical fruit and citrus and faint spice. Nice.

T - Taste also starts off with a lot of banana, along with a bit of bubblegum and white bread. Some more fruit and a bit of spice round it out. Very tasty.

M - Medium-light mouthfeel is very smooth and creamy. Finished with a touch of bitterness.

O - Definitely a classic example of the style and a very tasty beer to boot.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A 500ml bottle is poured into a weizen glass. Only a portion of the bottle will fit during this pour.

The beer is colored golden straw. A slight haze makes the liquid opaque. A sizable pure white head rests on top. As it settles, decent lacing is left behind. Initially, a good amount of clinging carbonation could be seen on the walls of the glass, but it has disappeared. Some sparse rising carbonation can be seen.

The beer has a big bready aroma. I can smell a good amount of clove and banana. There is no apparent sweetness, nor any overly bitter scents.

The beer has a very good flavor. A decent amount of wheat can be tasted. Banana and a light sweetness can be tasted as I swallow. Hefe yeast and a dry sweetness linger afterwards.

This beer has a medium body and a great level of carbonation. There's enough to feel, but not enough to be distracting. The giant head made me think this beer would feel more bubbly. A slight film coats my tongue that has a little bit of sweetness and some banana flavors.

This is a fine example of a true German Hefeweizen. Any fan of quality beers should give this one a try.

The entire contents of a 16.9oz bottle emptied into a Schneider Weisse weizen glass. Yeast has been swirled in. Warm tangerine glow with thick haze and a tall frothy head that fell to a slick layer on top. 4.0

A lemon-banana combo in the nose with bready wheat malts and slight alcohol whiff. Kiss of spice and whiff of tang. Fruity and semi-sweet and almost perfect. 4.5

Firm banana esters are going to town. Fruity with a touch of citric zest. Tangy wheat bread notes with no grainy astringency. Smooth in the middle with a lasting lightly-spiced finish that follows with more banana and pink bubblegum. Hint of tutti frutti. Absolutely delicious. 4.0

Wet and creamy with appropriately lower carbonation. Drinks like no-pulp orange juice, easy and smooth. 4.0

One of those ‘top o’the line’ hefes. Light on the spice, heavy on the banana, and with a lovely lemony scent in the nose. A hefe to have one after another. Finally got around to this ‘top ten pick’ of mine here in my summer hefeweizen project. A tough act to follow, but I’ll see what’s cold in the fridge. Cheers! 4.5
