Pretty lame for a German Weiss. Ever so slightly hazy pale gold appearance. Aroma of nothing much, but for some reason i could smell peanut butter. Peanut butter also came through on the palate, with some slight lemon zest, tiny tiny bit of banana and clove, really lame and thin, Weihenstephaner Kristall had a lot more flavour, and body.

Poured with a good solid head that stuck to the tall glass for the whole of the drink, pale golden colour with the usual cloudiness, though not as dense as some. Aroma nothing to shout about, not really the usual heady smells of banana's cloves and yeast, rather muted. Taste is clean, light, refreshing, though not the depth and character of the best wheat beers from Germany, maybe slightly drier than some in the finish. I enjoyed this beer, but it is not in the same league as Schneider or Andechs to name but two.

This brew poured a medium white head that did not last very long. It was yellow in body. This particular brew had a cloudy appearance to it. It had a fruity aroma to it in my opinion. There was not much in the way of flavor with this brew which disappointed me as I really like German Wheat beers. This one was lacking character.

Lemony yellow in color with a two finger thick white head. Yeasty and spicey smelling. It is very yeasty flavor wise with the typical wheat beer mouthfeel, but I didn’t pick up on any banana flavors though there was plenty of spicey notes. The aftertaste is abrupt in the fact that there hardly is any. All the flavor is front loaded then it just ends so that fore and middle is all you get. Slightly watery due to that abrupt finish, but still very drinkable and enjoyable.

Cloudy golden body is topped by an excellent white creamy head. The head lingers, but I’m a slow drinker, so it eventually fades. The aroma is strong, more cloves than some, but the banana is there. The flavor is a bit more dry than some, and more herbally and the finish is a little more bitter than most. Still, something’s lacking from the body of the flavor that keeps it from being one of the better hefeweizens.

Paid .60EUR + .08EUR glass deposit for a 500mL bottle.

*Reviewed on 25.07.2005

The beer pours a real cloudy light golden base, huge mammouth white fluffy head that needed three pours to get into the Weizen glass, excellent beer retention the whole hour and a few specs of lacing. The smell is a touch of wheat, grain, and malt.

The taste is light on wheat, lighter on the grain and malt. Refreshing aftertaste with a grainy feel. Pure smoothness in the mouth, the head retention was awesome and gave the beer a great start every time, never once it was heavy in the mouth. This is a great session beer, but I would prefer a handful of other Weizens with better taste than this one.

Final Thought: This beer is so great on the palette, but lacks in pure wheaty Weizen taste, still a solid brew from a solid brewhaus.

Bought in Italy [imported from Germany], here's a wheat as expected, cloudy, hints of yeast, serious carbonation, long lasting head, good taste. The ABV is 5.6%. 500ml bottle.

Foamy white head, beautiful golden orange opaque color. The smell is nicely wheaty, fruity (oranges and lemon), yeasty. The taste is of wheat and yeast; the banana thing is kind of weak, it's more about oranges and lemon here. Nicely sweet. The body is light and highly carbonated. Mouthfeel maybe a bit watery. Drinkable.

Beer had a hazy light golden color with a good head and good carbonation. It had a nice fresh grain aroma. The taste was refreshing with a crisp slightly bitter finish. The feel was light but seemed balanced. This was an enjoyable beer. Not really a fan of Wheat beers but a nice change from all the pilsners.

Had this in a bottle as Konig Ludwig Weissbier. Poured to a hazy lemon-yellow with a tint of orange, and a nice medium head that lingered long and left good lacing. Nose was a very pleasant and strong mix of ornages, cookie dough and clove, and the mouthfeel full and tingly. Flavor was a mild hop, again predominantly cookie dough, clove and orange, with just a hint of bubblegum at mid-glass.

A very pleasant and tasty beer with a long satisfying finish. Perfect for a hot summer day.

(Review stolen from Marsiblursi because I agree with it perfectly) Pours hazy yellow golden with a creamy head. The aroma is of doughy white bread, lots of banana esters, light clove, light pepper, wheat and flowers. The flavour is light sweet and light bitter with a fantastic crisp and full carbonation. Tones of wheat, dough, light grass/flowers, light clove, light banana. The mouthfeel is round and smooth. Tiny acidic and dry finish. Medium bodied.

I had this in bottle several times on German trains. I wasn't expecting much but I was delightfully surprised.

It poured a nice amber with a huuuuge firm foamy frothy yellowish head, that was great tasting in itself. I nearly had to ask for a spoon. The head just stayed and stayed.

The taste was just superb-- enough hops & bitters to give it a good effect but not overwhelming. A lot of rich taste that were complex and bold, yet nothing obtrusive or out of balance.

Somewhere I have notes that I took on this beer as I was drinking it, which probably have even more specifics. I'll update this review when I unpack them.

I loved this beer enough to bribe the train snackbar-tender to give me both the bottle and the nice large glass!

One of my favourite Weissbeers when in Germany. Was better before the cooperation with WARSTEINER!. Abit scratchy bitterness but enough livelyness, a major characteristic of Weissbier! good fruity flavour. Ideal on a hot summer eve in a biergarten! cheers

Reviewed 7/10/2008 (bottle 26Nov2008):

Pours a cloudy very very pale yellow colored body, with a creamish head, average sized, and lasting. Fresh bananay aroma, cloves, effervescent-ish. Not too strong an aroma. Has a banana taste, some cloves too, somewhat flowery. Fizzy.

This beer poured out as a nice looking hazy yellow color. The head what fluffy and white. The lacing wasn't too bad. The smell of the beer was mostly of banana, yeast, and some clove. The flavor was smooth and bready. The mouthfeel was also smooth and refreshing. Overall it's not a bad hefeweizen and worth trying.

appear: opaque gold/banana color, white 5 cm head w/ amazing retention. Beautiful down to the very bottom.

aroma: tangerine and cream aroma, very spicy.

taste: spicy banana cake. Sweet, low bitterness. Light aftertaste.

mouthfeel : light and aggressively carbonated, I am tempted to give an even lowever mouthfeel than this, but I enjoyed drinking this beer, the rest of the attributes make up for it. (is that cricket?)
