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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Oranged-yellow-cloudy in appearance. White foam, quite creamy, decent.
The smell is grainy, of cereals. Very very light vanilla, lemon more decided. Maybe sweet apricot. Light spiced, and light banana.
At the taste the banana is a little more present, but in the background again. There are again the lemon and citron, and again, before all, the predominant grain.
Light body, lemon in the aftertaste. Nothing remarkable, an honest weissbier.

Beer pours a golden, slightly cloudy, wheat colour. Light green apple highlights reflect from the bottom of the glass. Generous white foam tops the brew and stays through the first half of the tasting. Up front, I was greeted by firm coriander aromas accompanied by citrus fruit, and a light wheat/home baked bread odor. Scents of banana esters, green apples and pears manifested themselves late in the nose.

A fine bead emerged from the sides of the glass and manifested itself similarly on the tongue. The body was light to medium and a slightly oily texture welcomed in flavours of bananas, apricots and some peach to try to ward off the mild quenching acidity which finally fell to a drying mineral bitterness.

This, to my liking, was somewhat too subtle and subdued in overall character. I tend to prefer big fruity, yeasty weissebiers with a little more bite in the finish. Still a fun beer to taste.

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?)

This brew poured a medium white head of fine white bubbles that was mostly lasting and a cloudy straw yellow body with a malty aroma. Its flavor was that of a yeasty banana wheat. All-in-all an average beer that is typical of the style and one that I probably would not go out of my way to buy again.

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.

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.
