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.

Wheat beer with subtle, dry, but altogether smooth taste. No real strong hints of any fruits or citrus, which takes away from the taste a little. A straight and true man's wheat beer.

(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.

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.

The 50 cl brown bottle is long-necked. The label is Yellow with a coat of arms; I'm guessing a royal one from somewhere in Bavaria. Looks pretty nice.

A: The pour is murky pale orange with an enormous creamy white head that slowly dissipates.

S: A bit faint smell. There is wheat, ripe bananas and citric notes (mostly oranges).

T: There is some yeast up front but soon it settles and then there is nice wheat and sweet ripe bananas. Nicely balanced. A faint spicyness is noticable as well.

M: The aftertaste is rather short and holds a dryness. The body is light to medium and the carbonation is rich with lots and lots of small bubbles.

D: The taste is nice and it really quenches ones thirst - just like a Hefeweizen should.

Had at Dolce Vita in Berlin (on Lindenstraße). Into the traditional hefeweisen glass.

Dark golden, almost a slight orange to the tint. Thick inch and a half head. The yeast is thick, and a bit globby in the bottom of the glass. Not really putoffish, but it could be a little less clumped.

Overripe bananas and lemon peel. A touch of clove. A bit of a yeasty smell, but not too much - surprising for the color of and the quantity of the yeast in the glass.

Very yeasty in taste with sweet banana and a touch of lemon zest. Yeast heavy, but it's not out of style.

A more substantial hefe, but still refreshing on a warm afternoon. Went fine with cured salmon, but would be fine on its own or as a pairing with a light chicken or pork dish.

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.

Pint at the Abbot on the Hill. Cloudy burnished gold under a frothy white head. Pretty typical, pretty wheat beer appearance. Typical wheat beer aroma of banana and clove also. Aroma is carried through into the taste. Nicely balanced and refreshing. One to have again.

Sampled at the Odds and Ends Tasting II on 10/19/07: This brew is a hazy yellowish color with a medium and foamy white head that diminshes slowly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, clove and fruit. Light-bodied with sweet grainy malt and honey flavors offset by mild spices and hops. The finish is yeasty with a light spice finish. Above average overall.

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.

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

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.
